Motorola One Action Android 11 update to fix Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz) bug triggered with Android 10
The Motorola One Action launched towards the end of 2019 and came with Android Pie pre-installed since Android 10 was released only a few weeks earlier.
In January, last year, the company started sending the Android 10 update to Motorola One Action users. As expected, the update brought a bunch of features and improvements to the device.
However, like most other software updates, Android 10 also carried some bugs and issues to the device. While most bugs have been ironed out, one major problem apparently still remains.
Back in 2020, some Motorola One Action users started noticing a Wi-Fi bug that was triggered with the update to Android 10.
We’ve shared a few of these reports below for reference:
Same problem here. Noticed lags on wifi but couldn’t place my finger on it until I installed a new ap. Very slow wifi but only on 2.4ghz. 5ghz works good. Tested with 3 different ap’s never speeds above 0,8mbs on 5ghz no problem. (Source)
I have the same problem with the wifi speed on the Tp link wr841n router. Other phones work ok and motorola one action max 1 mbs. (Source)
I am sure that this is not a hardware problem. I bought this phone in april with an Android 9 preinstalled and the WiFi worked perfectly at 2.4 and 5GHz. The WiFi problem came with the Android 10 upgrade. (Source)
According to most users, the Wi-Fi on 2.4 GHz bands worked completely fine when the device was running on Android 9 Pie. The slow Wi-Fi issues only popped up after users installed Android 10.
Moreover, switching to using the 5 GHz band seems to solve the problem, however, as some users in the thread pointed out, not everyone has access to Wi-Fi routers with support for the 5 GHz bands.
After multiple exchanges between troubled Motorola One Action users and an Admin on the company’s community forum, the admin recently confirmed that the Wi-Fi bug was indeed introduced with Android 10 and will be fixed with the “next major OS update” — Android 11.
The Administrator on the Motorola community forums has even suggested affected users to register for the Motorola Feedback Network to get a chance to experience Android 11 earlier and also possibly get rid of the bug.
Speaking of which, the company has already rolled out Android 11 for soak testers who are part of the MFN.
Therefore, it’s likely that Motorola will begin seeding the update in the near future. Unfortunately, the company has not shared any specifics regarding the availability of Android 11 for any of its eligible devices.
That said, stay tuned to our dedicated tracker to know when Motorola begins pushing the Android 11 update to more devices.
