At least you don't have to worry about a locked bootloader!
(God I hate bootloaders), There was a bug in install of the Latest OTA (I didnt install any custom stuff) for my phone.
Fingerprint scanner and locked screen didn't work. So without consulting the XDA forums I took it back to the orginal software to try to update again. Bricked my damn phone. This is all using the orginal software straight from Motorola.
I have to send it to motorola to get it fixed.

After abandoning my i90c and fixing countless others' v60s about 10 years ago I vowed never to buy another Motorola product. My mobile life's been fairly satisfying ever since.

I mean it was a great phone! It was fast, easy to use, feature rich. Only complaint I had was the Screen (A little small, and not as vibratant) and the damn bootloader that prevents its own older software from being flashed onto it.
