Several weeks after reports of soak tests surfaced, Motorola has finally announced Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its flagship phone Moto X 2nd Gen in India. Moto X 2nd Gen was first in line for Android update and rest of Motorola devices will soon receive the lollipop flavor as well.
Motorola Moto X 2nd gen, like other Motorola devices is running almost stock interface and thus you will be able to relish Google’s new material design language along with other changes.
The update is 576 MB in size and thus it is preferable that you have a charged battery and WiFi access before you begin. You can manually check for updates by going to Settings>> About Phone>> System Updates. When the update is ready for your device, you will get a notification.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is the most ambitious Android upgrade so far. Apart from new Material Design and enhanced security features, other additions include There are several other features to look up to , like default ART Runtime, Android L keyboard, new multi tasking panel, animations, etc.
Critics reviews have mostly been positive but consumer dissatisfaction is very conspicuous on Android forums. Google has already rolled out version 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 updates to squash some of these bugs. Since Moto X is quite similar to Nexus 6 (the launch vehicle for Lollipop) we don’t expect any major software issue in this new update.
