Motorola: Oops, phone busted? Grab a spudger and go get 'em, champ

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 ???

As my company's sole employee, I get unlimited leave, paid sickness, technically gapless employment (for the days/weeks I don't work I still get a wage), my company pays for my training and will supply me with security for the next 90 days (standard for anyone working for a large company). The only thing I don't get is a pension paid for me.

But then again, I don't tend to stay in any one place for a long term, the majority of my work is weeks in length not years. I (and others) are not doing anything illegal.
