Hi, I'm actually Moto G82 basically since the release, (maybe I have it since July). Do you think will it have android 14 update? I want to keep it as long as possible.
Had my g82 for nearly 12 months now. Have standard clear protection case only. No screen protector.
Dropped many times without issue until this week. Don't remember dropping it especially hard, but now have v small chip (pinhead size or less) in centre of screen, with a. Rack running from it across whole width 🙄
Can't really feel it, but am putting on screen protector now to stop the crack spreading. Just been quoted £90 in UK to have screen replaced.
Had many phones, and only e two get damaged screen. Last one value £250, thought I'd claim on home insurance...yes, we can let you claim on that, they said. £150 excess to pay, and your premiums will probably go up by about £50/year for the next 3 years.
Surprisingly, I didn't bother. Just bought another

With such fall, any phone is destined to get substantial damage. What I said was i was surprised that only lower part of my screen got shattered whereas with Samsung i think not just screen would have got damaged. Have seen my friends carry their Samsung flagships with broken screens even after simple fall from rest. Samsung is a great phone but definitely scores poorly on build quality. Nokia tops and I am glad Motorola proved to come close to that.

It has got to the stage where I don't even use any type of screen protector. I keep my phones in the same pocket as my coins and the screens have never been damaged or scratched.
What you are really saying is Corning glass is rubbish........
So unfortunately today my beloved g82 fell of my bike holder while riding book. Despite the brutal fall, only lower part of display got cracks (unlike some Samsungs where a medium fal intensity is enough to wreck entire screen). Motorola customer service send me shipment label to send the device for repair (still need to wait for cost estimate and will decide if it makes sense or not).
Anyhow after Nokia, i can say Motorola is perhaps the sturdiest of the phones in mid rangers. Very impressed with build and construction.

Anonymous, 31 Aug 2023Any custom dev? If this phone won't go past A13 it would be such a waste.Well most of Androids these days (bar Pixel phones) usually only get to see 2 versions of Android. I would find it pretty normal for a phone to run two versions of Android only
Any custom dev? If this phone won't go past A13 it would be such a waste.
Just got Android 13 with August security patch last evening. For me below things have improved:
1. The clock on lock screen can now be selected to appear on top left corner. Honestly the two line big time display was horrible
2. The front camera has become better with Moto Camera Tuner 5. No longer washed out or heavily edited captures from front cam.
3. In notification bar, Wifi and mobile data switches have separated again. Previously one needed to click wifi button to turn on and off WIFI or Mobile data.
4. The widget with date and temperature is back.
5. Performance looks good too, not slowed down after update.
Rest i cannot see what else is new. Maybe Android 13 is more under the hood update than visual. Apart from some reorganization, dont think 13 is a big upgrade over 12.
I also purchased my phone from amazon KSA and yesterday I received Android 13 and another security update for August 1st
Just received the andriod-13 in UAE.
Updating & hope it will be good.
Nirmalsinh, 26 Mar 2023This phone has low 5g connectivity. It's same for all other users as well.Others have been saying the same. But would be good to conclude that it doesn't depend on bad signal or network.
How is 5G? Stable?
Upgrade to Android 13 failed at around 90% last week.
Upon checking the system update it says I have the latest software.
Very strange as why it asked me to download Android 13 in the first place.
Not sure what the issue is.
Has anyone faced the same thing yet ?
engineblock, 09 Aug 2023There is some twitter post of a video with G82 running Android 13 circulating around. So it lo... moreProbably the Brazil version. A14 is about to be released so they damn better give us A13 now.
Src, 01 Aug 2023I'm reading that Moto G82 got Android 13 update in Brazil. Can anyone confirm?There is some twitter post of a video with G82 running Android 13 circulating around. So it looks like some regions have got it already 2 weeks ago. Hopefully end of August the update will bring next security patch + Android 13
