RRMy question is about OEM's and software support over time. I currently have a Moto X 2013 and though I love the phone, I'll be upgrading soon. I would love to try a phone like Oppo R7 or another not as well known phone because I'm curious. My problem is I don't know how well or for how long these companies support the software before moving on to the new products. What OEMs other than the popular one's like Samsung, LG, HTC, Moto, etc. make a great phone and how long do they typically support the software by pushing new Android updates?

Again, thank you for your time and I look forward to your reponses.

Jason:
-Huawei is bad at it.

Ron A:
-Oppo is bad at it.

JHI bought Motorola wih the thought that I liked some of the features, pariculary the speach to me of texts while driving, and that I'd get L quickly.

I have a Droid Turbo - Motorola's latest phone. and no L. My Samsung work phone (Note 4) about 3-4 months ago. You guys really need to give that some press.

Edit Notes:

.

.

TWiT BIT:
[1] Six months after version 1 of Android Studio was released, Google has announced the end of support for the Android Developer Tools plugin for Eclipse IDE. Google did say that those tools will "continue to live on in the open source community via the Eclipse Foundation"
[2] How about a battery twofer? 1. Samsung is claiming that its researchers have developed new battery technology that nearly doubles lithium battery capacity. This is done by using a grapheme coat on top of the silicon surface. That leads to higher energy density, and if we ever see it, it will also lead to nerds dancing in the streets, everywhere. 2. Qi charging has long been convenient but inefficient, charging at slower rates than if plugged in via hardware. An updated Qu charging spec paves the way for 15W fast charging. AWESOME
[3] Ever scroll through a webpage on your phone and the simple act of scrolling registers as an accidental tap on an ad? Google is tweaking how ads are interacted with to help prevent such accidental click throughs. - Better edge rejection for taps that hit too close to the edge of ads. - Improved detection of taps on an X that would sometimes lead to inadvertent ad taps - A delay once an ad appears so an immediate click won't register, preventing sudden pop up ads from getting a click
[4] OK then, how about a "leaky rear dimple roundup?" And by that I actually mean, phones that have supposedly leaked that have a dimple on the backside of the device? 1. In the case of the Moto G 2015, aka the Osprey, leaked renders show that the back side of the device has been redesigned from the previous years, with a nice metallic plate surrounding the camera and leading down to the dimple. Other reports say the device will carry a Snapdragon 410, 1GB RAM, 5" 720p display, 8GB storage, and LTE support. 2. Next, the OnePlus Two, with supposedly leaked photos showing a wooden back and, what do you know, a metallic plate surrounding the camera and its own rear dimple that is likely packing fingerprint reader tech. We know that last part is confirmed for the new device as OnePlus announced that new feature last week.
[5] Xiaomi is, for the first time outside of Asia, releasing a phone called the Redmi 2 to Brazil. The device is already available in other markets. In order to release the Redmi 2 in Brazil, they chose to manufacture, and assemble the phone inside Brazil, another first for the company that normally does this all inside China. Brazil heavily taxes electronics imports, and gives tax breaks to those that manufacture inside the country. This is a test for the company to see how much pull the brand has outside of Chinese culture.
[6] Matt Galligan, co-founder of Cira took to Medium to announce that Circa was being put on an indefinite hiatus. "Producing high-quality news can be a costly endeavor and without the capital necessary to support further production we are unable to continue."
[7] How about a Google apps twofer? 1. Google Translate now recognizes when a translation might be a bit too literal, and instead translates it to be more conversational. "And is not it all right" turns into "Is everything alright" 2. Google announced new partners that will work in tandem with Google Fit. Nutritional data from apps like LifeSum and Lose It will now feed into the service. And MyFitnessPal will also feed info to Google Fit. More hardware compatibility was announced as well.
[8] Pushbullet's "biggest update ever" was released today. Not only was the app totally redesigned, it was given messenger functionality that allows you to connect with friends and chat and exchange files inside the app.
