  • My Moto X 2014 didn’t even get 6.0. I would be in love if by some miracle it recieved 7.0

    Question is how many cell service providers will effectively block the updates in efforts to try to get people to buy new phones.

    The Moto G3 2015 should get it since they are still selling it on their website. If they don’t that wouldn’t be fair and they shouldn’t sell it.

    Just ask Droid Turbo 1 owners. Motorola might as well say “You’ll probably get one update” sometime. After that, your less then 2 year old phone is outdated.
