Indian mobile phone users still have to buy the Motorola phones online as the company announces on Tuesday at the opening of one of the service center in Bengaluru, that it is sticking to the online sales of its products in India rather than adopting offline sales like Xiaomi.
“Once we fortify this as a concept, we will take it to other cities,” said Amit Boni, general manager-India at Motorola Mobility. He further reported that currently the firm is boasting 150 authorised service centres across the country.
Moreover, he also said that the company is planning to start checking out its handsets directly from these service centres, which should be buyed from the Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart.
Confirming to continue online sale with Flipkart, Boni said. “We think it is working really well for us. I don’t see any reason to change that in the near future.”
Moreover, the reports suggest that the company, acquired by Lenovo from Google, has a 5% market share in the Indian smartphone segment in the third quarter of 2014, according to research firm IDC.
Besides this, the first generation Motorola smartphone users reported that they are getting Android 5.1 Lollipop (build number: LMY47M) update notification.
The new Lollipop has no issues in the connectivity, Wi-Fi, LTE and Bluetooth work flawlessly with it. However, users can experience few reboots after the installation, but one thing Google has worked in the Lollipop 5.1 is the improved battery life. Users can now experience the improved battery life in the new Android 5.1 update.
The OS so far is working fine, however, several reports emerging around the world suggest that the update is still not able to help the OS from not crashing the apps, as Facebook, Twitter and few other apps often crash, which can be very annoying for the users.
The new firmware v5.1 is not a major update, but rather a bug-fixing software patch. We believe these very enhancements will be reflected on Moto G GPe as well.
The new update will fix major bugs such as Wi-Fi tethering issue, Bluetooth connectivity, CPU wake-locks that result in heavy draining of battery, Chrome crash during deletion of SMSs when SIM memory gets exhausted and many more [scroll down for detailed description.
If Moto G (XT1032) device series owners are getting the update notifications, then select – “Yes, I’m in” option >> then, after downloading, select >> “Install now.” The phone will restart automatically and the OS will be updated to the new version.
According to the TeCake technical staff, the smartphone users could manually check for an update by simply visiting Settings > About Phone > System updates. It is recommended to the users that they should keep the battery charged more than 30 percent, before updating the device software.
