Handed in the Motorola G7 Play at Saturn in Düsseldorf for "repair" or replacement of the battery. Did a complete factory reset beforehand of the phone and removed the SIM and micro sd-card. Now I'll need to be patient for the next 10 days and deal with having to handle my old phone, patched with sticky tape, just to stay reachable on my private phone number.
The battery in my new #Motorola G7 Play is expanding! It’s visible because the plastic back cover is being pushed outwards. There is also a strong smell of a gluelike substance. Going to have to bring the device in for warranty. The service will take at least ten days to finish and return the phone to me. Disappointed. #hardware
Really nice how on my Motorola G7 Play, the external SD Card can extend the "internal storage" thanks to Android 9's feature to format the sd card as portable storage or internal storage.
