    this news is kind of relief to moto z users but moto is always good with time to time updates so there is no point worrying about it, they’ll take care of it for sure!!

    Did the Moto Z already receive the update then? Lg g5 was sort of a disappointment as far as modularity goes. The Z hit the right spot. And the Z play made it affordable. I was always skeptical how Lenovo would handle moto after the acquisition but they seem to be doing most things right.
