The unlocked variant of the new Moto G (2014) is reportedly now receiving the official Android 5.0 Lollipop release. Making this $179 phone the first to get the new release, beating out high-end flagships and even Nexus devices.
Soak test for the Moto G (2nd Generation) Lollipop update beginning to roll out
The new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 have been the talk of the Android town this week, with the Nexus 9 going on sale and the Nexus 6 remaining very hard to get, at least from Google’s Play Store. Our review of the Nexus 9 went up this week, but it wasn’t the only review going live: the new Moto X, Huawei’s massive Mate 7, and Sony’s Xperia Z3 Compact received the same treatment. On the software front, large updates hit Calendar, Maps and a few other Google apps. We’ve heard the first credible rumors about the Galaxy S6, due next February. Finally, Motorola made the rumored global version of the Droid Turbo a reality.
