Motorola isn't updating the Moto G4 line to Android Oreo as it said it would, and that's bullshit

You know who everyone hates? Liars. Nobody likes being promised something, only to have it taken away without explanation. At launch, Motorola advertised Android N and O updates for the Moto G4 line, but to the shock of many G4 owners, none of these phones were listed in the company's official Oreo update list. In fact, all mention of this promise has been wiped away. Motorola, this is bullshit.

The launch of the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus a couple of months ago meant two things. Firstly, there's a new budget king in town, with the Moto G range always offering incredible value for money.

You can now find the largest in the 2016 lineup, the Moto G4 Plus, at B&H for as low as $150 for the option including 16GB storage and 2GB RAM ($90 off), and $200 for the beefier option with 64Gb storage and 4GB RAM($100 off).

[Update: Gone from Amazon] Deal Alert: Pick up a 64GB/4GB Moto G4 Plus for $200 at Amazon and B&H, the lowest price we've ever seen

The guys at Droid Life spotted a pretty great deal today in the form of the G4 Plus @ $200 over on B&H. While we were checking it out, we also noticed that it's the same price over at Amazon. Both B&H and Amazon might be claiming that this is a $100 off, but if you look at price histories on Amazon and most other retailers, it's closer to a $60 savings. Nonetheless, that's almost a quarter off, making it a pretty nice price for the phone. And, by $20, the lowest price we've ever seen for it.
