    Nexus 6p is gone and g5 plus is here I'm a UK uaer and I'd appreciate any tips and tricks regarding the phone. So far so good! I just have one question, I'm not receiving notifications from one of my games and I'm not sure why! Everything is turned on.

    Congratulations on your new G5 Plus! it really is an all-round great device. The 625 processor paired with a 3,000mAh should allow for many hours of use. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    with regards to tips & tricks, have you tried 'one hand mode' also know as swipe to shrink screen. You can enable it through the Moto App. You can also change the display density. This allows you to see less or more content on the screen. Just go into Settings -> Display size.

    hope this a little and enjoy your new device!

    I do have a question though, I noticed that I'm on 7.0 and January security patch. No update available surely that can't be right?

    I wouldn't worry to much about that. Getting updates for your device depends on a variety of factors.

    If you purchased your device through a carrier then it's up to them to release the update to you but they can only do that if the OEM (phone manufacturer) sent them the update ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Just check once a week for updates. Many companies are always behind with security patches. There was an article posted today on AndroidCentral which shows the companies that have kept up with security patches.

    Ah okay thanks for your help. I bought it from a carphone warehouse SIM free so I'm not sure what that would get counted as?

    Great! That means you purchased a unlocked device. So you might receive updates quicker than those who purchased through a carrier. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    You might need to remove your SIM in order to see the updates a little earlier but don't worry about it to much. Just do a weekly search for an update and I'm sure you will receive a newer security patch soon.

    Not many people have Nougat anyway. So you are part of the early birds. Only 7% of people have 7.0 or higher ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Let's hope this one is perfect ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The SD card for me is a vital edition to my phone. Being able to add up to 256gb of storage is very cool. See you around the forums.

    I understand the g5 is the mid range device. Would the z2 play be the flagship device then? Or will there be another better device released, not sure how Motorola works things?

    The rumours say that Lenovo will release the Moto X4 and, maybe, the Z2 Force in a few months. Both of them with better specs than the Z2 Play.

    So the z2 force would be the one to look out for if you still want to use the mods then
