Moto G 2015 Hands On-11

Following the rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Moto X Style, Moto X Pure Edition (2015) and Moto X Pure Edition (2014), it looks like Motorola has begun pushing out the big update to the unlocked Moto G (2015) in the United States. If you own this variant of the budget-friendly device, the update should be waiting for you.

As previously noted, the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow will bring a ton of new improvements and features, including Doze mode, more granular app permission controls, Google Now on Tap, Android Pay, and much simpler volume controls. Also, Motorola will be taking away a few features with the Marshmallow update, including Moto Assist, Motorola Migrate, and the Google Chrome extension for Motorola Connect. Motorola claims that there is no need to pre-install these features on their devices anymore because Google provides similar functionality in Android. The company says it wants to compliment Android, not compete with it.
