Some Moto G devices starting to receive Android 5.0.2 Lollipop

Android 5.0.2 Lollipop has started to roll out on some 2nd gen Moto G handsets. The devices are all in the USA, but hopefully this will go global soon.

Published onJanuary 13, 2015

Hot on the heels of the news that Lollipop will be coming soon to various Motorola 2013 and 2014 devices, it now seems that Android 5.0.2 Lollipop has started to roll out on some 2nd generation Moto G handsets.

According to Jose G. from the USA, his 2nd generation Moto G has received an update. Previously he was running 5.0.1 which was build 22.21.25, but now after the over-the-air update he is running Android 5.0.2, which is build 22.21.28.

The roll out of Android 5.0 Lollipop seems to have been quite slow. In my house we have a Nexus 7 (2012) and a first generation Moto G. Neither have received the update from Android 4.4.4 to Android 5.0.x.

The apparent slowness of the roll out could be to do with a huge memory leak in Android 5.0, which many users are saying causes big problems. According to comments left here on the Android Authority web site, some users aren’t having any issues at all, however some are being hit quite bad.  I was wondering why Lollipop was closing apps and behaving badly. I was wishing I could go back to 4.4.4. That release was so much smoother.” While Oktar added, “I have to reboot my Nexus 5 every 4-5 days!!! It’s awful!!!”

Until now the only device to get Android 5.0.2 was the Nexus 7 (2012). All other devices were on Android 5.0.1. Let’s hope that the new Android 5.0.2 that is starting to roll out is smoother than 5.0.1!

Have you got a Motorola device? Any updates? Please let me know in the comments below.
