  • I think it is very cool, and a great idea. However, I'm not sure I'm fully ready to switch to an Android phone at this time.

    If I did, it would be important to ensure the latest version of Android OS is maintained at the latest possible version, quickly after each Android release of a new OS.

      , I think you've touched upon the most difficult challenge of Android - keeping it updated and supported long enough. Most companies seem to fall short there, either due to negligence, desire to provide a custom OS, or view toward pushing the latest model.

    I'm cautiously positive about this phone, but I'm also wary Motorola/Lenovo won't be able to keep it up to date or support it long enough to make it a good investment.

  •  good comments.

    It would really help their marketing, and sales, if they promised up front something like:

    "We will ensure the most current Android OS and security updates for the next 5 years, until December 2028."

    A simple forward promise, such as this, builds credibility and adds value as a service.

    It also lowers the barriers of risk and concern for the consumer.

    By the way, as Covey says, this is a "win-win".

    A secure business product is what both Lenovo and Motorola would want to have associated with both their brands and long term strategies for market growth.

    That's why, outside of the large makers like Google and Apple, I appreciated companies like Essential that were willing to make that promise up front and stick with it as much as possible (Essential unfortunately folding for other reasons).
