Than back out once and force stop or force close the app, leave your settings and once you open the browser as you normally would the issue would be fixed, your browser would start like brand new but gets rid of your problem. As mentioned its not your phone its the sites you visit which have these pop ups and gets worse if you open or download any content from them. Have a good day!
BLS NE, 23 Apr 2019I was used to fingerprint sensor on the front but it takes a lot of real estate. After using t... moreThe reason I prefer it on the front is that I usually leave it flat on my desk at work, usually an arm's length away, and have to pick it up to unlock the screen by either touching the fingerprint sensor or looking at the screen. I have to lean directly over the screen rather quickly to unlock it via face unlock or type in a PIN if I want to leave it on the desk. I don't always have to pick the phone up, but it would be nice to be able to unlock the screen while it's on the desk to read a text or email or whatever notification happens to come in but quickly disappears because moto display lights up the screen for all of two seconds.
If the fingerprint sensor was on the front I could just touch that wherever the phone is sitting without having to lean over it so that it sees my face or lift it up off the desk. The chin area is still there, and I guess Apple has a monopoly on the way to get rid of that, so they could've put the narrower fingerprint sensor from the G6 or G6 Plus there.
I hadn't paid much attention to it, because they're not really advertised and don't get much exposure, at least as far as I've seen, but I've noticed that Sony still puts notification LEDs in nearly every phone they produce. Many of them also have NFC. Problem is, apparently they haven't yet noticed that band 71 is a thing, and it's getting more widespread coverage lately. And having more than one or two phones that work on all major US networks might help, too. They also need to move those fingerprint sensors from the side and back of the phone and put it below or beneath the display, especially since a lot of their phones have broad blank chins, much larger than ones like on the G7 Power. Then I might consider getting an Xperia phone instead.

Beware!!! those recommended extensions are very deadly malwares. If installed those will send 100s of sms from your phone, costing all your balance.

After using the G7 Power for a while, I now prefer it on the back with a bigger screen in front. Just wish Moto had eliminated the chin.
BLS NE, 19 Apr 2019Does have band 71.The G7 Power does, but the Mi Max 3 that another poster recommended does not. I'm looking forward to when band 71 is finally available in my area, which probably won't be for another year or so.
This is really a great phone indeed. just wish it had NFC and a notification LED, and that the fingerprint sensor was on the front like on most of the previous Moto's from the G5 Plus to the G6.
I've been using this phone (US/unlocked) for two weeks and it's 85% as good as Samsung 10+ for 25% percent of the price and has 161% of the battery life. Supports all US carriers. The battery does add a little bulk but I can get 5, yes, 5!! days of light to moderate use on 1 charge. Once you use a big battery phone you can't go back. I don't care for the notch but I can live with it.
I think Moto chooses phone specs by throwing darts at a wall but somehow they did pretty well with this one. I like it quite a lot.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2019Try Mi Max 3Doesn't fit the bill. Has rear fingerprint sensor, doesn't have all the US bands, etc. Looks like the closest Xiaomi phone to what I'd consider the perfect phone is perhaps the Mi Mix 3, but it doesn't have band 71 and costs an arm and a leg.
The Galaxy S7 comes closer, but still doesn't have everything I'd want in a phone.
The G7 Power is doing quite well, though. Battery still at 87% right now from 100% 14 hours ago.
Issues when connected to my vans Bluetooth the van rings but the phone is not showing any signs of ringing! So I can't answer it.
When not connected to the van it's not notifying of calls or letting me know I have voicemail

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2019Notification LED? Really? Absolutely. I'd rather it be there and if someone doesn't want to use it there should be a setting to disable it.
Update regarding something else I discovered about the G7 Power...
... Shortly after I got the phone I discovered that it had difficulty connecting to the Bluetooth receiver I have in my car whereas my old G4 Play never had that problem. Turns out there's a setting buried deep within the overall 'settings' you have to change. In 'Security and Location,' you have to go to 'Location,' 'Advanced,' and then 'Scanning' and toggle off 'Bluetooth Scanning' because apparently that interferes with the phone being able to re-connect to your most commonly-used Bluetooth devices. There's a similar toggle for 'WiFi Scanning' as well. At first I thought my phone might be defective, but it isn't. It's just this obscure setting that was the culprit. Figured I'd post this in case anyone else ran into this problem.
Begin rant: Also, I'm wondering, is there a phone in existence that is unlocked and works on any major US carrier, has a notification LED, a proprietary dock that puts the phone in desktop or driving mode, a front fingerprint sensor (or under the display), NFC, all the rest of the options this phone, including a massive battery, band 71 and a headphone jack, and is similarly priced? I think it'd be easier to find a unicorn at this point. End rant.
