Re: I think my next phone will be a Motorola

This story sounds great, until it transpires that Motorola/Lenovo are currently "bricking" phones, and it is the fault of the user for having the temerity to repair their phones (ie a replacement screen).

There is a growing number of bricked phones, they work fine with Android 7. As soon as an upgrade to Android 8 is performed the touch screen fails to work.

Shades of Apple ???
