Moto X Lollipop Update Issues
nshaneyf

I'm experiencing a number of intermittent issues since Verizon posted the Lollipop update to the original Moto X:

  • The phone intermittently shuts down (once it happened in the middle of a phone call, once while I was using the Facebook app)
  • Bluetooth connectivity sometimes intermittently cuts out, especially during a phone call (I can hear them, but they can't hear me).  After switching to the handset, the other party can hear me for 5 seconds, but then they can't hear me again.
  • In general, app performance is slow and the phone seems laggy.  The camera is slower and much less responsive.
  • App optimization occurs nearly every time the phone powers up. Historically, I have only seen this happen ONCE on Android devices that just received an update, and then never again until the next update.  This means the phone takes 20-30 minutes to start up.

Would love to hear others' input and get a resolution or patch to this!!!

The 2013 model or the 2014 model? I don't experience any of those things on either model.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

System version is 222.26.7.ghost_verizon.Verizon.en.US

Build number is LPA23.12-39.7

Rebooting to Safe Mode and restarting again seems to have alleviated the optimizing app issue, and things seem less laggy altogether.  I'll keep monitoring for random shutdowns or spotty bluetooth. Thanks for the suggestion.

nshaneyf,

Providing this information is definitely great. We appreciate you working with us to get your phone concerns resolved. It’s great to see that you are having a better experience with your phone now. Given that Safe Mode seem to alleviate the concerns you were having, it tends to point towards apps being the culprit. I would recommend a sort of “spring cleaning” on your phone and get rid of apps that you don’t need. My own person rule of thumb is if I haven’t touched it in a couple of weeks, I don’t need it in my phone. You can also review the permissions you have allowed certain apps, via the Apps Manager, to see if the permissions granted outweigh the possible impacts it may have on your phone. Keep us in the loop with your additional findings.
