    So, any predictions on how long it will be till we get our hands on Nougat? Once I get back to the UK I'll take my shot at talking to Moto about it, but I wouldn't expect much from that.

    I have hope it will be quick given the phone is near stock and not tied to a carrier.

    But then it is a budget phone and now owned by Lenovo, so who knows.

    I forget where I read it but Nougat will be coming before the end of the year.

    They said the same for the Marshmallow update last year, and we didn't get it until the end of December 😐

    Well it was December for the USA. In the UK I didn't get it until February!

    I got told in, what, October last year by Moto support they would roll out the update for the g3 soon, and it didn't roll out for me until four months later so i wouldn't count on it being too fast.

    Now that my friends iPhone 6 from 2014 is about to get iOS 10, we are still waiting on even a confirmation from Lenovo on our phones from may getting Nougat. I understand the difficulties in android updates, but no. This is no longer an excuse for phones with essentially no skin over the OS. Once this phone dies I am NEVER getting another Motorola phone. It takes a few days for every iPhone since the 5, to get an update, and yet it takes android manufacturers months. For me, unless we get Nougat soon, I'm going to Nexus.

    Comparing OS and security updates between iOS and Android is an Apples to Oranges comparison.

    That said, on the Android side, the only line with guaranteed OS updates is Google's line.

    Anything else will disappoint.

    I am aware, but if you sell phones on the premise of fast updates and a clean skin, one would expect fast updates, no?

    They're not selling the G on the premise of fast updates.

    Do you remember the drama from last year with the E? Since the original X simple software and updates have been something Motorola have run on, and whilst Lenovo bought Motorola and Lenovo and (fast) software updates are like cats and water, they could at least publish a list of what's getting N? Oh, and I think not needing someone's IMEI to process a basic question about an update would also he useful.

    Unlike the E, there are no Motorola marketing materials on their site that promise updates.

    But still, surely for a simple enquiry about a timeframe does not require my IMEI number? Also, it's concerning they have not even said which devices will be getting N. Quite disconcerting.

    A few days delayed from the announcement but crazily enough we'll be getting our hands on something a bit nicer than Marshmallow by the end of the year. Certainly not as long as it took them for MM on the Moto G³ (in Europe at least)

    I wouldn't be surprised if N doesn't run as well as Marshmallow on this phone. Maybe I'll be wrong.

    For me marshmallow is absolutely horrendous. Ive had worse (like my galaxy S3 on cyanogen mod 12), but surely Nougat can't be worse than Marshmallow (in my experience)

    MM runs pretty well for me. The SD 617 certainly is no 820 but it's not bad. This is a decent experience.

    MM /usually/ is OK for me, but sometimes it just slows down and stops. I feel like my old moto g3 (before it bit the dust) on a SD410 almost ran better more of the time.

    I find that my Marshmallow experience on my g⁴ plus is a bit smoother overall than my marshmallow experience on my g³. I don't use adoptable storage on either so that tends to keep things smoother and snappier.
    I think nougat should be fine for the g⁴.

    I have adoptable storage cause I got a 16gb model cause im quite good at breaking phones, but I'm not sure it's adoptable storage.

    you'll know if it's adoptable if you check settings > storage and USB screen http://i.imgur.com/y6wN1eQ.jpg
    for example in the link mine says portable

    I think you misinterpreted me. I'm most certainly using adopted storage, but I doubt my relatively minor problem is caused by it.

    I had an unlocked 2014 X Before my G4 Plus finally arrived (16 days) The battery was dying on my X I did a factory reset to see if that would help. The G is noticeably smoother to me than the X was.
    I think it may be the ram because with a few pages open on Chrome on the X and scrolling became quite jerky the G is very smooth.
    When I bought the G I couldn't justify another flagship for reading the web, Strava and G-mail.
    But it seems to out perform the X.
    Never used NFC, miss the compass a little, but the camera and battery make up for that!

    Miss leather back too.
