    I bought/preordered my MZP from Best Buy on 20th October. I have 1Aug 2016 security patch. If you are very concerned about security patch updating, get a Google Pixel. The manufacturers are all over the place on this issue.

    If you want it monthly, buy a Pixel. If it's out of your price range, buy last year's Nexus 5X or 6P.

    Monthly Placebo updates, loool for what?

    And buying an outdated 808 or 810 nowadays seems an aweful idea.

    Better go for an energy efficent 14nm Chip which stays cool , SoCs above are good AT pocket warmers in winter.

    Yea, I hear ya. The Pixel is pretty pricey, that's why I have the MZP. Regarding the security updates, if you aren't loading apps from 3rd party sites or Warez, I think the security update aspect is a bit over valued. It's good to see security updates, but if you're not going to nefarious sites & downloading who knows what, I think one is fine. However, I try to keep the apps on my phone to a minimum. My days of loading apps, rooting, loading custom ROMS continually are over.

    Right.

    Common sense and more than just one brain cell is the best security update.

    ..just sayin'.

    People whine and cry about updates. Even being one month behind isn't good enough for those people. If those people want the latest, their only option is Google (and BlackBerry, but ... it's a BlackBerry).

    I'll continue to use my Moto Z and enjoy life.
