moto x 2014

 

After pushing the official Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the Moto X (2014), Motorola is currently testing Google's latest Android 5.1 Lollipop for the same device. The company is known for its fast stable updates.

 

The Lollipop version 23.1.28 is being tested out with several improvements such as reducing the noise in low-light shots of the rear camera and front-facing camera too. The Moto X (2014) Lollipop 5.1 update is expected to roll-out Over-the-air (OTA) next Month (April).

 

Device Protection is one important feature that keeps the lost or stolen devices locked even if the factory settings reset is tried and functions only when signed in with actual Google account. Apart from these improvements, there are several under the hood tweaks arriving with this update.

Droid Turbo

 

If you own a Motorola Droid Turbo and you are waiting for your Lollipop update ? You are in luck, Apparently the Droid Turbo will not get any build based on Android 5.0, but instead will be updated directly with Android 5.1 Lollipop which is currently the absolute latest version of Google's mobile OS.

 

This probably means you still have some waiting to do until the new software will reach your handset, unfortunately. Google has just started rolling out Android 5.1 to its Nexus devices, and not even all of those have it yet. On the other hand, Motorola has been fast with updates lately, so perhaps it will move quickly with this one too.

 

The reason for the jump from KitKat straight to Android 5.1 Lollipop apparently has to do with Verizon. The carrier "demands" VoLTE support baked into the Turbo's software, and Android 5.1 provides that natively. So for Motorola working on backporting this feature to the first Lollipop release, only to then have to switch to Android's native implementation with the 5.1 update would have been a big waste of resources. Hence, the decision to skip 5.0 altogether.
