Motorola has been pretty good about their update schedule, they’ve lagged a little on their older devices but they’re still on track to receive an update to Google’s latest. David Schuster, a Senior Director at Motorola has actually updated users on the update process for three first generation devices on Google+ this morning and it looks like they’re going straight to Android 5.1.

The update on Google+ points out that though testing has begun on Android 5.0.2, it’s 5.1 that has all the goodies including fixes that improve the user experience.

Motorola moves fast, so you can expect to see a soak test – and obviously the leaked OTA from that soak test – coming shortly.

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.

It’s not fine by me. I’d just about given up waiting for 5.anything on my Moto G (LTE). So many months since 5.0 dropped and nothing yet to show for it despite Moto’s promises they would be updating the G. Let’s hope that by the time a Moto 5.1 is released the current version isn’t 5.2 or even 6.0!
