[Update: Aug. 24] Motorola Edge & Edge Plus new update, bugs, issues, problems tracker
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 26, 2021) follows:
The Motorola Edge+ was the first flagship phone from Lenovo-owned company to be released after it spent a couple of years focusing on their mid-range and budget-friendly market.
Not much after, Motorola launched the standard Edge model that was a bit toned down compared to its pricier ‘Plus’ model.
The Motorola Edge Plus was priced at $999 which put it right up against flagships from the big boys — Samsung and Apple. This left many potential buyers a bit disappointed.
Fortunately, the standard Edge was more affordable at $699 but it too had a few compromises that made some steer clear away from it.
But these were only minor issues with the new phones. The biggest problem with the Motorola Edge Plus was the various issues with the screen that even trickled down to some Edge units.
There were multiple updates to address the problem but nothing seemed to have worked, eventually leading up to Motorola having to replace units, which in some cases, were no better.
Nevertheless, in this post, we’ve be keeping tabs on all developments regarding the Motorola Edge and Edge Plus including details on minor or major bugs, security updates, and even Android OS updates.
Motorola Edge and Edge Plus software updates
The Motorola Edge and Edge Plus launched with Android 10 onboard and were set to bag at least two major OS updates. Android 11 was the first big OS update to hit the devices a few months ago.
Now the devices are in line to bag the update to Android 12. This could be the last major OS update for the devices after which they will continue receiving security patches for another year.
That said, in this section we’ll be tracking all the upcoming updates, including security patches, for the Motorola Edge and Edge Plus.
