Motorola G8 Power: Still om security update 1 Dec 2019

2020-05-03, 18:28 PM

Hello,

 

I bought the Motorola G8 Power some days ago, it's a great value for money smartphone.

But i can't update to a higher security update.

 

Iam living in The Netherlands, XT2041-3

 

When is it possible to update?

Because it's 6 months later.

 

Maybe better sent the smartphone back to the shop and buy a nokia with less specs and no stereo speakers, but every month security updates for 3 years and 2 major updates.

Solved! See the solution

I think that i found out myself whats wrong. 

The Dutch company sent me a smartphone for the Italian market and iam living in The Netherlands.

I checked my IMEI number on the internet, Think that is the reason of no security updates. 

Do i need to sent it back and get my money back or does the country not matter?

And can this be fixed?Ordered by https://www.mobiel.nl/

 

Found out that this company, that is active in The Netherlands, sells alot of smartphones from different countries.

Is this not illegal?

Does the smartphone ships with Android 10 out of the box?

Yes, out of the box Android 10.

It will get 1 major upgrade to android 11.

 

Updating the security updates will sometimes get stuck on the Moto G8 Power.

But the moderator on this forum can fix the update problems, when you sent him your IMEI code or serial code.

Then 2 days later you get the latest security update May 2020.

 

I did return my first phone, thought it had a different problem of region/country.

But now i know what the problem was.

 

Solved for me, just sent moderator a private message and he fix everything very fast.

 

Now iam very happy with the Moto G8 power, the accu is amazing good.
