    Unlocked MZP here

    Power off and Startup is much quicker. 100% quicker.

    Dislike the new startup animation but it starts up faster.

    New pulldown notifications are nice...Some with quick reply options come in handy.

    Battery life is seems to be a tad longer. Going 48 hours on same charge with no battery mod.

    Screen transitions are fluid and buttery.

    This update is what I wanted MZP to be in the first place.

    How about others' experiences?

    I have no comparison to the old because mine updated literally a few minutes after I first turned it on. This phone is incredibly smooth though and already I can tell the battery life is amazing.

    It's horrible. MM was smooth. This? Like some cheap Chinese crap. There is stuttering EVERYWHERE. For example Android Messages are stuttering the whole time no matter what, G+ is stuttering when loading new content, the same goes for 9gag. Sporadic stuttering is seen throughout the whole system, like swiping home screens or scrolling in Settings. I never see this much broken update in my life.

    Sounds like a factory reset wasn't done. This is my experience when I don't reset.

    It shouldn't have to be done though.

    It was done. Several times. Marshmallow runs significantly better.

    I'm sure there will be updates that will fix a lot of the issues. There always are.

    Kinda hard to imagine it since they refuse to even acknowledge them in the first place.

    A lot of complaints on the new update over on Motorola's website Community Pages also. Number 1 complaint seems to be much poorer battery life, and a few losing LTE and / or very poor signal. Of course the mods on there first suggestion was doing a Factory Data Reset, which seems most people did and still were having the same issues. I was about to buy one of these in the next week or so but I think I'm going to hold off now and see what becomes of these issues.

    No problem with my wife's Z Play, Verizon version. YMMV.

    I updated on Wednesday night and haven't noticed any differences in performance or battery life. Was fully charged this morning,have had 3.5 hours of SOT and battery is at 71%. I usually average about 1 hour SOT for each 10% of the battery, so I'm actually ahead of my normal pace.

    Home page stutter here, too. Switching to Nova very soon!

    Umm, 100% quicker would be instantaneous...
    That said, i am certainly well-pleased by how it's performing so far.

    I'm about the same as this. 10% for every hour of SOT.

    Having native call blocker built into a dialer is worth it alone to update from crappy marshmallow.
    Fantastic experience on unlocked z play with nougat. Phone flies and hardly sips any battery.

    Even with a couple cache partition wipes I was still getting jittery performance using the Google Now launcher. Switched to Nova, spent a couple hours tweaking it, and now I'm happy as a clam!

    I use Nova regularly anyway. So, overall, with that fix in place you'd recommend updating? I'm on the fence lol...

    FWIW I'm not experiencing any performance issues but I cannot tell you how it was before the update because it got updated 2 days after I got it

    I was told by a Motorola Engineer you cannot revert back.... especially Since I have addison/vzw. Anyone heard any different?

    I had a couple days on MM. Not enough to really dig into it's quirks/strengths, but enough to get a sense of it. Loaded Nougat at 2pm today. No stuttering, smooth operation across apps/screens. Battery life doesn't seem to be adversely affected as of yet. So far so good.

    Pretty much true for stock. Usually the bootloader gets updated with these updates which will prevent you from flashing an older ROM.
