Come on guys, I thought we were pals. Okay, a virtual “community”. Okay, some strangers who occasionally banter on cameras and technical topics.
My inexpensive Motorola phone was a dream running Android 9. I had no complaints and was among the regular Android touters/bigots around here.
I finally stopped postponing the prompts and spent a half day letting it go through a long series of Android 10 upgrades and patches. I updated some apps (I don’t use the Play Store).
It’s terrible! There seem to be critical and egregious OS issues (not memory leaks, since my total RAM usage never comes close to its limit).
My browser crashes silently and without warning all the time, taking any open private tabs with it forever.
The “bubble” for an active phone call randomly just doesn’t appear - this is a real treat when trying to join a WebEx conference via callback. It will usually work again for a little while after a reboot. (I’ve tried enabling Bubbles in Developer Options and checking the app’s notification settings.).
Today I just wanted to switch an active call from Bluetooth headset to Speaker… and no matter how I hit the screen button it just blinked and refused to give me any other output options, not even Handset!
I’ve checked storage (over 30 GB free on both internal and SD) and RAM (2.8 used of my 4 GB) and battery usage app info seems normal too with no unusual things running.
I’ve exempted a couple of things from Battery Optimization, but no improvement. Tried updating the stock Google Phone app without improvement. I just now realized I haven’t disabled “Adaptive Battery” so I’ll try that next.
What the heck did they do to this release? There are no further updates available for my phone. I really don’t want to wipe and start over.
