That's 7 or 8 on here with the update.

Noticed two more reports on Reddit (EE and 3).

 

Security update still stuck with everyone?

Still stuck on April.  Hopefully, the extra security inherent in a10 covers (or not).

Yes, I suspect this is a stuck issue. Google Play system update came through for July but that's a new Android 10 feature and like app updates comes directly from Google. So seems like Motorola still need to fix Security updates.

(New in A10 - Settings/Security to see both security updates)

Overnight I have the option to "upgrade" to Android 10.  However, until I get guarantees from Motorola this upgrade will not further break the bluetooth connectivity to cars (see threads, Problem with G7 Plus and BT connection to car and Problem with G7 Power and BT connection to car) I will be holding off.

 

I'd left between a rock and a hard place, as I either accept that my phone has known security issues, or I upgrade and risk losing essential and rather basic, functionality in the blue tooth connection to a car, which is IMHO a safety critical issue.

 

Regards,
Steve

The bluetooth connection to my hearing aids was distinctly flaky with a9, but seems to be instant and solid now with a10.  Let's see if it continues.

I hope so, as that makes my car connection issue insignificant in comparison.

 

 

My partner has a retail channel G7 Power that received the Android 10 upgrade 6 to 8 weeks ago. That is my baseline for sticking with Android 9 as the bluetooth connection to my car is still unreliable.

Steve

Had a small issue with 3rd party launcher reverting to stock after using recent apps until I pressed home, but that seems to have sorted itself out, battery life is still the same as some users had reported problems, but actually running quite well for me even though I had major worries about installing it

Android 10 and 3rd party launchers are uneasy bedfellows. I use Nova but on this update on the G7 Power I was pleasantly surprised by how absolutely everything from launcher and all apps to all customisations were preserved. Almost finished tweaking, running very smoothly, definitely faster.

Pleased to report that the bluetooth connection to my hearing aids remains solid, even allowing a scheduled firmware update to them via bluetooth.  Yesterday, I ventured into a VERY noisy environment and via bt switched the profile of the hearing aids to cope.  My host was wearing a mask, 2 metres away and, despite the noise, I was able to hear him quite clearly.  At last, I am getting full value from advanced hearing aids that cost £2,300 for the pair, thanks to an OS upgrade that took an age to arrive.  Even though I have been retired for 2 decades, my technical knowledge (on site) is sometimes called on for aged equipment.  An operating airfield is a noisy environment.
