    According to a Motorola spokesperson, consumers can “expect to see Android N on the Moto Z family and Moto G4 beginning in Q4.”

    Well that's something we can have some confidence in, although 'starting in' leaves a lot of room for delays of some or most models.

    I can't wait for the update. Hopefully it's out right before I get the Moto Z Play Unlocked October 20th. Would make my day.

    they can use their saved time to overwork the manuals of their flagship Z devices

    "Suspect?" How? Lenovorola essentially abandoned this device well before its time. First by their bait-and-switch tactic with Band 12, then by failing to update it. The fact they decided not to update it to Nougat was neither suspect nor surprising, to me. I would have been surprised if they'd announced they were going to update it.

    And, as I wrote: This is probably a good thing. The phone works pretty well, as it is. Given Lenovorola's history with the Moto series: I would've expected them to screw it up royally, then tell customers "Sorry about your luck."

    Relax? Oh, I'm relaxed. You're the one who wrote "brace yourselves." And probably rightly so: It's the victims getting the forced updates that should probably be nervous. (I know I would have been.)

    I waited to see the Pixel announcement yesterday before pulling the trigger on the Moto Z Play. My single biggest concern about the Z is updates. I figured I would get 7.0 by the end of the year (hopefully), but realistically, that's all I'm planning on getting from Moto/Lenovo. I don't want to get my hopes up!

    People like to rag on Lenovorola's and the Droid line's update schedules, but the reality is that while it's not good, it's not horrible either. In the 11 months I owned the Turbo 2, I've gotten 4 software updates, which isn't worse than most non-Nexus phones before security updates became the trend. Plus, it got Marshmallow before many S6's and G4's did.

    I have hope that Lenovo will have more motivation to support the devices that it created for Motorola (G4 series, Z series) better than the devices it inherited from Motorola (E series, G3 series, X series) though. If they can get us Nougat before the end of the year, I'll be happy.

    Time will tell if the update issues might be somewhat limited to / related to the Google-Lenovo transition time. Perhaps there were things about the devices in that time that Lenovo didn't want to deal with, but they may do better with updates on devices developed under their umbrella. Or they might continue to suck. So far they're doing well with Z updates, and I'm perfectly happy with a Q4 Nougat update (especially if it ends up being 7.1 w/Assistant integration). We'll see what happens with the Zs once they're no longer the latest device from Lenovo/Moto.

    question regarding updates:

    there is a single sim version (UK,DE) sold via Amazon and a dual nano sim sold directly from moto

    does this matter if moto pushing OS Updates , I mean , could there be a disadvantage when bought "Amazon version"

    I would expect they'll probably push updates for all Z Play units the same, whether single or dual sim. The Play Droid might get updates on a different timeframe, but I wouldn't expect much if any difference due to the sim count.

    I preordered my Z Play so I'm hoping the Nougat update happens sooner rather than later. Would make my day.
