Motorola's very late updates for the Razr 5G keep on coming, later than ever

Motorola's very late updates for the Razr 5G keep on coming, later than ever

Motorola's folding Razr was a surprise homage to an iconic phone, but the company quickly followed it up with the Moto Razr 5G, which tops the original revival in almost every aspect. While the phone launched with Android 11 in Japan, it got stuck on Android 10 in most of the rest of the world, with an unfortunate launch timing shortly after Android 11's stable release.

OnePlus 6 and 6T get new update, but it's still not Android 11

OnePlus 6 and 6T get new update, but it's still not Android 11

OnePlus is rather slow when it comes to software updates as soon as one of its phones isn't the flagship anymore, and that shows when you look at the OnePlus 6 and 6T. The phones still haven't received Android 11 about half a year after Google first launched it. Sadly, that isn't changing with the latest software update, either. It comes in the form of OxygenOS 10.3.10 and doesn't bring a lot to the table.
