In this race of ‘Who upgrades its Android phones first?‘ among the phone manufacturers, Motorola seems to be on the top. It had recently released Android Lollipop Soak Test image for Moto X 2014 and now it has released soak test Android 5.0 Lollipop for Moto G 2014 model.
LG had also announced to update the LG G3 to Android Lollipop by the end of 2014. It has even announced that it will start seeding the latest Android update to G3 from this week in Poland.
These soaks tests being carried out by Motorola only mean that the actual roll-out date for the Lollipop update is not too far. We are expecting too see Android 5.0 rollout for Moto X and Moto G by the end of this month.
The changelog for Android 5.0 update published on Motorola website mentions support for Material design, flashlight, device share, performance improvements,etc. Lollipop also supports ART runtime by default and brings battery backup improvements.
Phones like Nexus 5 and Nexus 4 still haven’t received the Android Lollipop update, so Motorola Moto G and X (2014 models) receive the update in a few days, then they would be the first non-nexus devices running the official Android 5.0 update.
If you are using a 2014 Moto G then head to settings and check for system updates.
