I just got moto g power (TracFone) android 11 update

2021-05-06, 5:01 AM

Just got the android 11 update a few hours ago today. Overall performance is very smooth and I'm enjoying it better than android 10, the only problem is the status bar looks weird.

Congrats on the Android 11 update!  I guess the lesson here is if that you buy a phone from Tracfone (and others) you (eventually) get OS and security updates, but if you buy directly from Motorola you're last in line (if we're even in line), with no OS update and months of missed security updates.

 

Bob Galvin (the founder of the real Motorola) would be so embarassed. I worked there for years... heads would roll.

"You're last in line."

 

Ronnie James Dio approves this message.

 

 

 

On a serious note, a few members on Reddit's Motorola forum have said as much. It appears that the TracFone variant is receiving Android 11 first.

Hey kesh102. Including overall battery life, is the performance still smooth after the update? Even after a Factory Reset, several members on Reddit's Motorola forum have complained about serious lag issues since the update. Members on XDA's Motorola forum have even stated they're planning on unlocking the bootloader and re-flashing the stock Android 10 software. So far there has been no consensus about Android 11. The reviews have been extremely mixed.

Well personally for me, I haven't experienced any lag issues, and battery life seems good, though I have only used the phone for less than 24 hours...

Got the update last night for tracfone too.    Seems smooth, don't use my phone alot though.    Mainly use it for music while I work or drive, 7 hours of constant use for tunes at work used about 13 percent of the battery.     Overall phone use, navigation seems smooth to me.   The only thing i don't like is not having  a native music player.    My old lg phone worked better with my car, i could browse through the music folders.     With the moto g power i can only seem to play my entire collection in a set order, and am unable to browse it at all.    I can manually set songs etc through a 3rd party music app on the phone, but have yet to find one that, just works like my old lg premier pro.

Any idea on if the update will be available for download from Motorola manually? Or is it OTA only?

 

I have US unlocked retail version.

The Lenovo Rescue and Smart Assistant (LMSA) tool can be used to upgrade your device. However, "new software" must be available. Personally, I would just wait for the Android 11 roll out. The U.S. Moto G Power TracFone variant is currently receiving the Android 11 OTA update so the unlocked retail version can't be that much further behind. If you choose the first option, keep in mind that you will need a Windows PC to use the Lenovo Rescue and Smart Assistant (LMSA) tool. Debian/Linux is currently unsupported at this time. Go to this link to find out more information about Lenovo Rescue and Smart Assistant (LMSA)

Currently downloading A11 now. I have the unlocked US retail version purchased at Best Buy. My carrier is Verizon, but it is not the Verizon retail phone.

 

Package size was 1,362.6 MB, and it came OTA.
