If you have already purchased the device you’ll be pleased to learn that the Moto G 2nd gen v21.11.23 update has now arrived. This software update is already being rolled out in the UK, India and some other countries.

    Generally in youtube while viewing the video in landscape mode the notification bar will be visible with only the battery icon and the on screen nav bar will be visible without the buttons taking a good amount of screen real estate and now this bug has been crushed. Sometimes there will be slight stutters and turning off and on the display will solve the problem. That is also gone now. They say auto brightness has some tweaks but i personally didn’t see any changes. It behaves normally.

    It lags on dial pad for first time click, I have to use double time and as well as in call dial pad too. It really sucks my phone. It is hanging very much from previous version. And sometimes I don’t hear the callers voice then I have ti restart phone again.

    When i load an app from the menu and press back button to go back to the menu, the background disappears and turns black. Anyone else is facing this sort of a problem?

    Initially i got the update but i was not able download that time. After some times when i manually try checking the system updates, it says software is up to date. My system version is still 21.11.14. Help me out to solve this issue…
