Anonymous, 18 Oct 2021Which month you got update of android 11I just bought mine from amazon last october 2021. I updated my moto g8 power last week to android 11. I love this phone specs so much compared to my last samsung S5. I wish it can last longer than my S5 say 6 to 8 years tops

Great phone and the battery lasts all day with over 50% power left. However, within a few months the rear camera has dust behind the lens... It cannot be cleaned out and my macro camera is just a blurry mess.

I just bought this phone now in Aug 2021 and man. I love it. I had to watch many reviews before I could really buy it. I suffered with a bad battery life phone before and now needed a phone with great battery life with great specs and a good camera( not excellent because I knew great camera calls for greater price. I'm in campus college I couldn't manage spending much bucks on a phone, in campus you will really appreciate this phone. The design great, the speakers are great( I don't even want to be using headphones cause I feel like they ruin the quality. I don't even know want to complain about. Motorola thanks.

Not at all a good phone, in fact I would classify it as the worst phone I've ever had
Overall the phone is very good. Battery, clean and fast software, audio and camera are the strongest points. The camera gets even better with Gcam, it only misses a Dual Pixel auto focus a feature only present in high end phones. The moto g8 power does have a compass. The G9 and G10 have worse specs overall.
Weakest points it does not have 5ghz wi-fi and the 2.4ghz is limited by about 35mbps, no limit with 4g though. Phone dimensions and weight are really bad but it seems nobody is making compact or right sized phones anymore. Big screens are the current trend. And I am annoyed that I cannot not find a way to disable the daily Android 11 update notification, does anyone know how to disable the notification? I do not want to update.
Citrax, 25 Jun 2021I can honestly say that I haven't experienced a single issue that anyone has listed here.... more1) If in the UK, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 applies, which means the item has to DURABLE enough to be fit for purpose and of merchantible quality. A phone, which is 100% going to be dropped at some point in its lifespan, is NOT fit for purpose if it breaks so easily. Just because the average muppet tolerates this pathetic standard, does NOT make it either irrational (as you posit) nor unlawful to expect the manufacturer (via the RETAILER, with whom you have the contract) to toughen their phones up and adjust to the law's minimum standards. It doesn't happen because people are too ignorant to stand up for their rights.
2) Something Cex build-into their business model a lot, incidentally. Buying from Cex and getting a good deal? Then you are lucky.
I've been a customer of theirs since 1997. These days many MANY items they sell are broken. I have detailed evidence if you like... Running at something like 70% of items bought there at this point (and guess where I don't shop any more?)
They used to claim "we test our items so well that we can confidently offer a two year warranty". They used to run their PCs on a looped 3DMark benchmark in the shop, to show their reliability (Goodge St).
Now they dropped the "we test our items so well" because they often just DON'T (more profitable when the average customer is ignorant, has low self-esteem to stand up against criminal denial of their statutory rights, etc. I've spoken to Cex Store Managers who were literally PROUD that "Trading Standards have been trying to get us for years and they can't." Ignoring the fact that if Trading Standards are bothering to act at all in the first place, the business is likely breaking the law. No empathy whatsoever for customers. More of that ignorant selfish culture that has been highlighted throughout this pandemic, basically. Then these idiots blame anyone else but themselves for the world's problems, as if the salary level you are at determines your effect on the world and nothing else exists (which is obviously delusional as a world-view, as we're all linked, maximum 6 degrees of separation on the globe if not less these days with social media and globalisation).
I'm a little confused why you are complaining about a phone being "Google everywhere" when Android is a Google product. Maybe buy Apple next time.
I can honestly say that I haven't experienced a single issue that anyone has listed here. The phone was bought second hand from CEX and other than missing the box and any original accessories, it's in perfect condition. I have found with Android in the past that when you transfer apps etc from your old phone it can cause all sorts of issues. I always do my restore from the cloud rather than direct from another phone. I live in a horrendous signal area and I'm getting a great reception where other more expensive "premium" phones have failed. When it does loose signal it switches to WiFi calling with no issue. The camera works fine and I've put it in a case just incase I drop it from 3ft. (I would suggest if you're going to use your phone as a bouncy ball that you take some responsibility for your actions and don't spit your dummy out when customer service won't fix the phone that you broke.) Anyway, all in all, for a budget phone it's doing well. Oh and it's running Android 11 with the June 2021 security patch.
Upgrade to Android 11?
This phone is s..t, microphone burst 2 times now, the camera flip and flashlight shake work whenever they want, and lots and lots of soft issues, I hate it, my ex better Asus it's beating this one by a mile at least, I tried at least.
Android 11 broke the phone.
- Wifi issue no signal.
- Clock alarm stopped working.
- Signal Bars went down.
