Moto G6 battery issues after Android Pie update

2019-08-08, 22:11 PM

The update has ruined my phone. I'm extremely unhappy with it. 


I am experiencing the same sluggishness and lag that is common, but I'm also experiencing shut downs when trying to watch a video on full screen (in YouTube as well as an Instagram story, for example) and occasionally when opening apps. Also, loops of the phone crashing over and over when this happens. When I do manage to get the phone to work again, I've lost a huge chunk of battery. My battery went from 35% to 19% within around 30 minutes of very light use, and then from 19% immediately to 0%, with the phone powering off. When I plugged it in, the power level was immediately back up to 36%.


My phone is now basically unusable and I'm extremely frustrated. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm going to try a factory reset in the hopes this fixes it, but that is such an inconvenience that - at the end of the day - I shouldn't have to go through. A broken update shouldn't be pushed out...
