Since apparently I need to clarify this, I was referring to 8.0 on the Moto E4.
Anyway, I'm pretty much done talking about this. My Xperia L1 came in yesterday, and while the MediaTek 6737T leaves a lot to be desired, the phone more than makes up for it with a more colorful screen (that is 5.5" 720p), GLONASS support, a magnetometer, a charge LED that actually works out of the box, an NFC chip, and some rather nice UI tweaks that not even Lineage seems to get right.
