Motorola-
With the announcement of Android 5.0 – Lollipop barely made, Motorola quickly announced which of their devices will receive this latest version of Android. The good news is, if you’ve purchased a Motorola device in the last year, you will be happy.

As expected, Motorola will of course update their latest handsets, the second generation Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2014). The original Moto X, Moto G (including the Moto G with 4G LTE) and the Moto E will also get the Android 5.0 update. A couple of US-only Motorola phones, the Motorola Droid Mini, Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx are also in line for the update.

When the update will arrive has not actually been announced, but given that Motorola actually delivered Android 4.4 to the Moto X on some US carriers before the Nexus 4 was updated, you can rest assured they will be fast.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

if only Samsung would give up on touch wiz,(which they only did to piss apple off anyway) so updates like this would come before Samsung owners and up 2 os’s behind.

Excellent news! Was tempted to grab a Moto E the other day, or try and find a Moto G 4G on the cheap
