Motorola made the Moto E 2nd Generation, the best phone I had used. I still plan on buying the G5, but I am disappointed with the deprecation of the G4, among other high-end devices being discontinued.
My Moto G4 Play is still on marshmallow. I don't care as it works very good.
Kyo, 18 Sep 2017At $1000 support should be for 5 years but Moto g is only $200-300 so I feel one major update ... moreThe G series was known for it's amazing support policy. It was basically a cheap Nexus. Until Lenovo screwed up everything. I still have an original Moto G. 2 major updates, and very quick.
Yo yo, 18 Sep 2017I think all smart phones should be supported for atleast five years. This two year bullshit is... moreAt $1000 support should be for 5 years but Moto g is only $200-300 so I feel one major update is enough,however all those $600 phones should get 3 major updates or best charge less for phones and give paid updates.
I wonder if this is because Motorola doesn't want to release an update, or Qualcomm not releasing updated Oreo drivers for a 2 year old chipset?
I think all smart phones should be supported for atleast five years. This two year bullshit is a joke, you buy a $1000.00 phone and it is garbage at two years old. Tvs last longer then this come on.
adeel.fastian, 18 Sep 2017Buy Moto Z play hands down.It's a flagship level set and perfect for day to day and heavy use.... moreGonna hold off on those moto recommendations until Lenovo gets a grip of themselves
Phab 2 pro n now moto g4 series
Next is what
Moto Z (2016) ?
Buy Moto Z play hands down.It's a flagship level set and perfect for day to day and heavy use. No lag at all and perfect memory mangement.Gestures are easy and fun to use, can be updated via Moto Mods and will definitly have 3 years support.
I am using this device currently and totally satisfied with it's performance. Perfect hardware and almost almost clean android software (Nouget 7.1.1) with useful gesture on top.
It's Lenovo, what do people expect? They even released a Tango phone with outdated OS, and that is supposed to be a phone that they collaborated closely with Google.
More reason to dump any of these OEMs. The Motorola brand is done the moment Google sold it.

Please advise me that the Moto G4 Retail Uk is going to receive Android O Update and when this is going to happen.
Motorola USA is not showing Moto G4 to get Android O.
Moto G4 is only about a year old and it would be unfair if it does not get Android O.
Please advise thank you.

I chose Motorola one because of having used Motorola in the past and two using a Lenovo Laptop currently. When I can afford it in the future I will replace both.
Samsung's firmware updates are very stable unlike sony. If anyone own sony phone, don't update. It will just ruin your phone.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2017Maybe not that bad of a news, actually.
I've got a Samsung A5 2017 and I won't be updating i... moreI can confirm that the Nougat for Galaxy A-series 2017 is a great upgrade which won't ruin your experience, it will only enhance it.
Jase PM, 18 Sep 2017Why do you think your phone would be ruined?
When my S6 updated to Nougat, it gave the phon... moreS6 got the grace ux look of nougat
A5 7 will get the experience ui look of nougat
Maybe the grace ux edition is much lighter
But it looks like the experience ui version is using more ram for bckground processes
