Each week, we round up all the major software updates to hit the Android ecosystem, including phones and tablets on U.S. carriers, unlocked phones, smartwatches, and Android TV devices. Make sure your device is running the latest available software so you can enjoy new features—and fewer bugs and security holes.
Moto G4, G4 Plus: We found this to be a solid pair of budget phones in our review. With Nougat, which Motorola says is on the way now, they should be an even more compelling options. Along with all the standard Nougat improvements, there’s a new Moto action that allows you to swipe to shrink the contents of your screen.
ZenFone 3 Deluxe: Another helping of Nougat is coming to this camera- and battery-friendly device. Asus says to check for an update manually if the Nougat build hasn’t hit your phone just yet.
Honor 6X: If you’re eager for Nougat and willing to put up with a few bugs, then you’ll want to jump on the company’s beta release.

Nougat is baked in with the latest version of the company’s custom software. So send over the email right away, because often there’s a limit to how many beta testers are accepted.
