The Moto G, Motorola’s best selling
smartphone on the low end, appears
to be bringing some heat here this
Autumn as the next device to get
Android 5.0 Lollipop. Appearing in a
Moto G (2nd Generation) Android
5.0 Lollipop Release Notes document
this afternoon, it seems all but ready
for full release. First is the soak test
– not everyone will be getting this
release immediately. Once that’s
done, the whole world can partake in
the delicious candy update goodness
that is Android 5.0 Lollipop in its
What’s interesting about this update
to the Moto G is that the Moto G
isn’t entirely “Vanilla” when it comes
to Android. Inside you’ll find
Motorola apps. But with the update
to Android 4.4 KitKat last year,
Motorola was one of the first to

were right on top of that update –
only a few weeks after release to the
Nexus lineup.
NOTE: See our Motorola Nexus 6
hands-on to get an idea of what this
Moto G Android 5.0 Lollipop
software is going to be like for you!
The entire modern Motorola lineup
will be Android 5.0 Lollipop update –
that’s the Moto X, the Moto G, Moto
E, DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx, and
DROID Mini. Not on that list – not
yet, anyway – is the DROID Turbo.
The DROID Turbo is a different
situation entirely, as it’s the only
device that’s been released in the
past few months that’s a carrier
exclusive. Its international edition,
Moto Maxx, is also absent from the


The Moto G Google Play Edition is
also on that list – though it’s not
called out individually.
Motorola suggests this update to
Moto G, the 2nd generation anyway,
will be coming rather soon. Expect it
within the next week or two.
