    Motorola, please include Moto G (3rd Gen) for Android Nougat Update (Change.Org)

    I haven't signed it (yet?) because I'm not certain I actually want Lenovorola to do this. Unless Nougat on the G3 also adds VoLTE (and, preferably, WiFi calling) on T-Mobile: ISTM they'd likely induce more problems than they'd solve.

    But others may really want it, so: For all the good it'll do: Here ya go :)

    I'm surprised the Moto G 3rd gen isn't getting Nougat since the phone is only one year old.

    Many people are.

    Nobody knows what is the deal with this phone. It started out with Band 12 support, then they disabled it. It hasn't been getting updates and, now, it looks like it won't get Nougat. It's a terrific phone, but, it almost appears as if Lenvorola hates it and wants it to go away.

    A better Change.Org petition might be: Lenovorola: Tell us why you treat the Moto G, 3rd Gen. phone like an unwanted step-child?

    Everyone should sign this petition, even if you do not own a Moto G 2015, or any Moto device for that matter.

    The issue here is Moto promised as part of the features of this device 18 months of updates, and they are just quietly trying to sweep that under rug and hoping users will forget about it. Many of us, including myself, would likely have not purchased this device if there wasn't a promise of ongoing updates, for the price at the time there were better spec'd devices but none with the Moto promise behind them.

    Thanks to everyone who has participated so far, we have reached the 1000 signature milestone but still have a way to go.

    We have received confirmation that the at least one major Android news outlet will be running a feature story in the next few days and pushing it to all major social media outlets, and fully expect most others to pick it up shortly.

    Don't give up, and feel free to continue sharing and signing the petition if you haven't yet!!!

    Just an update for everyone, thanks to the great article by XDA's news staff and users sharing on various social media outlets, we have quickly jumped up in supporters and have surpassed 5400 supporters and the number is growing by the 10's every few minutes (from the time I started posting this until refreshing again, it jumped 33 signatures)!

    I can only say thank you for all the overwhelming support by users out there, please continue to support and share where appropriate.

    Might help to keep this thread going and growing too.
    Looks shameful toward Lenovo & Motorola name.. not just G3 but reflects on all their products & usually they have good lasting products.
    I've 3 Lenovo notebooks here and maybe 6 moto's. Next purchase may as well just buy the cheapest things out there, who may or may not do future upgrades - just like Motorola does. Why pay premium dollars for something not maintained or upgradable.

    Just a little update if anyone is interested... Hit 13,100 signatures earlier today.

    Also found out that change.org is blocked in China, so a huge market area for this device is missing the ability to respond, and Brazil just got wind of it this week, another big market area for the G3/Turbo. Continue to spread the word and thanks for your help!

    I somehow don't think that many around here would be likely to read and sign it anyway, simply because it's in English, and not Chinese. I can see change.org no problem, I'm using a VPN. :thumbsupdroid: ...anyone I know who's interested in non-Chinese language websites, e.g. expats, that's what we often do.
