    In case the price comes down again and other forum readers succumb to temptation: AccuBattery reports the battery health at 102%.

    So came with a good battery.

    The headphone jack is a bit wonky. First couple of attempts could not get any sound. Finally got it to work by push-pulling with some force. There's an entire thread on this over at the Lenovo's forum:

    How much battery power do you think this phone should use daily if it's just sitting somewhere not being used actively but is activated and able to receive calls/texts/emails? I have the screen brightness set to 50%. If I pick the phone up just to fiddle with it for a couple minutes it uses 2% to 3%.

    Most of my phones use about 8% in 24 hrs when sitting idle waiting for calls/texts.

    Far nicer than anything else you will get for anywhere near that price from Tracfone.

    I'm really trying not to get too tempted by this.

    Time to get tempted! You would never regret this purchase. If you saw it you would never let go of it.
    The glass has a deep rich blue tint to it (blue temptation)... and it responds as fast as you can tap it.
    What would Sweeper advise?

    After it upgrades itself to Pie, does it get glitchy? There are reports of that with no good remedies.

    The one I received Saturday is not glitchy at all. I did nothing to prevent it from being glitchy.
    I have a TF AT&T BYOP SIM in it that has been in three previous phones.
    Insert the SIM and everything just works without you needing to do anything.
    Yeah, the included Verizon SIM had it auto-dialing *22899 (about a dozen times) until I removed it after about an hour.
    The only problem was that the battery was below 6% when I tried turning it on to check the state of charge.
    It would not turn on until it charged for a very short time. The turbocharger was supplying about 2.5 Amps.
    I had previously never seen over 1.2 A on a Tracfone.

    Do phones from the eBay store require a signature on delivery?

    I had heard that a factory data reset after the Pie update would solve the glitches.

    Wonder how long it takes to get the Pie update? Does it have to be activated, or does it happen when on WiFi?

    The Phonescoop review said the Moto G6 had poor sound quality. How is the sound quality for those who are using it?

    It does about 8 security updates, one right after the other. The Pie update came in the middle of all those updates. I didn`t time the Pie update but it did not take long, maybe 15 minutes at most. The security updates took much longer, beginning with late 2018, the last was Feb. 1, 2020.
    Sound is good, but I have Dolby Smart audio turned on.

    I didn't have to sign for mine. The box came UPS and the guy didn't knock, he just left it on the back stoop. Wouldn't have known it was there if not for the delivery notice I signed up for by text.

    It might differ depending on the driver or whether UPS or FedEx. It came fast, ordered Thursday evening and got it Monday after a failed delivery attempt Saturday night.
