Update: Moto G4 plus/ G4 now receiving security patches till December in the latest update!! Update now.
Welcome to Techno Reviews !!
Well, now most of you in India must have got the nougat update by now which was released as the company promised in December(though in the last week, but technically it is still 2016). I took some time to write this review as I was going through all the new features testing them one by one.
So let's get started !!The phone has got a couple of new stuff both from Google and from Motorola.
From Google we get all the features Nougat has and the phone pretty much feels complete now.
Though I expected a bit more in the battery life, but with doze on the move feature, battery life has definitely improved. The phone unlike that of 'doze' in Marshmallow need not be stationary.

|The two-page notification|
This includes a new notification bar, this time the phone gets a smaller menu on the first swipe where you have the basic functions likes WIFI, Mobile data, battery life. On second swipe you get a menu similar marshmallow menu but this time you have 2 pages with shortcuts and you can add or remove them which was a feature only found in the system tuner in 6.0.
Well, a slight disappointment is we've got no game time like we got in Lollipop and Marshmallow after long pressing the 'N'.
When it comes to the settings menu we've got a slight change in its look. We now have suggestions showing up and we've got a quick settings menu if you swipe from the left of the screen which lists every setting, so you basically don't have to keep going back again and again to access different options.

Though not many apps support it but it is quite nice for apps like YouTube which don't play in the background.
That's like what Google is giving us so now let's see what MOTOROLA has in stock for us.

Also, they have finally added a real useful feature, that is now you will be able to lock your phone using the fingerprint sensor, Finally we have one more use to the fingerprint sensor
Well, that's all folks comment if you wanna ask something !!
Well MOTOROLA did announce about these phones getting the Android O update too so we may probably end up getting some more awesome features by this time in next year, for now, et's keep our fingers crossed!
