Motorola has been updating its eligible devices to Android 11 since the beginning of 2021. While Motorola devices continue to get the said OS update, users are not quite satisfied with its quality.

There have been multiple reports of bugs and issues from Motorola users after receiving the Android 11 update.

To recall, users of Motorola Moto G Pro started facing lagging or screen freezing issues after the Android 11 update.

Also, the said OS update for the Motorola Edge and Edge Plus removed the Edge display feature for several apps and brought issues like laggy animations, screen timeout, and more.

In fact, users of the G9 series devices like the Moto G9, Moto G9 Play, and Moto G9 Power have also been reporting about problems like battery drain, screen flickering, and more.

This clearly indicates that Motorola did not properly fine tune the Android 11 update even after taking its own sweet time to deliver it.

While it is common for bugs and issues to be present in major Android OS builds, the presence of similar issues across most Motorola devices clearly raises some serious concerns.

Thus such bugs and issues are even forcing Motorola users to look for alternatives to downgrade to Android 10.

Moreover, it is unclear how Motorola is tackling such problems as several issues have been acknowledged but there have been no updates regarding fixes.

As per some users, the only workaround to get rid of such bugs and issues is a hard factory reset from the recovery mode. While steps like hard factory reset are usually taken as last resort, it is indeed helping some users.

However, a permanent solution for all such problems is still required from Motorola’s end.
