G6 Play Battery Saver Mode/Quick Settings Menu

2018-08-15, 19:21 PM

Hi all, 


Has anyone figured out how to remove the ghastly orange that appears at the top and bottom of the G6 Play when battery saver mode is on?  Coupled with the fact that Twilight (and similar) don't work in the notifications area or across the bottom anymore with the Oreo update, the phone is very hard on the eyes at night.


I could always turn it off, but I got the Play precisely because I wanted a phone that would need recharging only rarely.

Hi RustyWalliams,


I understand your sentiment. I'm afraid there is no way to remove the orange indication that the phone is in battery saver mode. We're always looking for opportunities to improve our products. Thank you for your feedback. We'll forward it to our product team.

I had a great experience with a Moto G5 Plus so when I needed a new phone I bought a Moto G6 (Amazon Special Edition 4GB ram/64GB storage) on Cyber Monday. I've had the G6 2 days and I'm starting to wonder if I got a unit with a bad battery. I unplugged my phone this morning and without even turning on the screen I was at 95%battery 20 min later. While Playing Clash Royale the battery will drain 1% every 30-45 seconds and it doesn't seem right, I expected more from a brand new phone. Does anyone else have any experience with this phone and is battery life really that bad?

I am in the process of returning the phone to Amazon and don't know if I should try again with the G6 or look for something totally different. Besides the battery I really like the phone and I'm hoping this isn't normal peryourhealth

Hi jinnu11,


Sorry to know about this and thanks for posting! I would suggest you please check your device in Safe Mode and see if it's the same. Also, Please update your profile with current phone, carrier and serial number -- this will help me investigate. Please make sure that the options under Settings > Motorola Privacy are on as well, and let me know (just reply here) if it's okay for me to look at your apps to see if they are a source of problems.
