    That is my experience since android Pie.. am I alone on this??

    This phone felt sooo fast on Oreo, a real pleasure to use, but since android 9, there is random lag everywhere, the kind where the frame rate drops significantly for a second or so.


    The power button also misbehave, sometimes i have to preset twice to turn on the screen.
    And THAT ram memory management.. i have the 8 Gb, but feels more like 2, that’s ridiculous.
    My previous Moto X Play felt faster (except when opening apps..)

    I went from last oreo to 9.0.3, did a factory reset, erase everything, and start from zero, and from there, i kept updating has updates came on, always erasing cache afterwards. I dont have to many apps install.

    For me, it doesnt sound as bad as your case, but i do get dropped frames for a couple secs here and there. It isnt as butter as it used to be, but generally it is at least decently fast

    If only there were a quick and easy path to roll back to your nice, cosy previous situation.
