Will there be an OS UPDATE 11 for G8 PLUS ?

2021-02-10, 1:01 AM

With all the problems I have read about being caused by the OS 10 UPDATE, I am a bit hesitant to allow it's update to my phone, especially if there will not be a follow-up of another system OS and other updates to fix any problem it may cause. If there will be another update that can fix those problems that may be caused by it, I would like to know when the OS 11 UPDATE may be expected. By the way I bought the G8 in the USA.

Thank You,

No. It shipped with 9 and upgrade to 10 rolled out last Autumn. Not eligible for 11.

Nah mate, Motorola are notorious for keeping their smartphones up to date.

That`s why I suggest you to go with another brand - like SAMSUNG, because you will at least know that they offer three years of updates :)

Bought mine last September with Android 9 on a EE contract. Promised 10 around late autumn but received after Christmas. Happy with that, but the promised Android 11 by EE via Motorola, so they said was never going to happen. Always be careful with what the contract stipulates. I probably will not use Motorola again, but EE carries a lot of the blame. So I might stay with them as long as I get clarity regarding updates.

Mate, I bought the Galaxy A42 5G and if you aren`t aware Samsung provides their recently launched smartphones with three years guaranteed of major updates..

I decided to keep the G8 simply because it has a Stereo Speakers..

Yes, I agree. I had a major touch issue with my Moto One Vision. I returned it and got the Moto G8 Plus. Great phone, but the moto 8 and moto g8 power getting A11 and not G8 Plus is one of the most unfair things I have ever seen (speaking of mobiles, of course). Greedy. I am done with Moto. After 3 Moto phones, my next one will not be of this brand. hello Samsung.

Hi SleepyheadSissa

 

I'm sorry if you feel that way. I appreciate your feedback, least I can do is to pass it along but I can't guarantee any changes regarding software upgrade plan for this phone. Thanks.

 

Best regards,
Rich

H Rich. No probs. Disappointed, but EE sold me down the river with the Android 11 issue will G8 Plus as far as I am concerned. Android 10 works like a dream on my G8 Plus so ok.  Still nice to get Android 11 but not going to happen regardless of how much we scream and shout this time. Excellent mobile 10/10
