If you happen to own a Google Play Edition of the Moto G, then Android 5.1 is now available for you to download. Going live over this holiday weekend, the OTA should take your Moto G from 5.0.1, straight to Android 5.1. (more…)
Motorola now has a full fleet of 2nd generation Moto devices to take it well into 2015. With yesterday’s introduction of the new Moto E (2nd gen) with LTE, the Lenovo-owned company can hit almost any price point or level of phone a consumer may be interested in. We have the Moto X at the high-end, Moto G in the middle, and now the new Moto E rounding things out at the “low” end. “Low” is a bit misleading, though, since it technically tops the new Moto G in a number of areas.
To compare the three, we put together a classic chart to show the differences. I can imagine that a number of you are debating between the three, so this should help in your research. Below, you will find price, specs, connectivity, and color options for each phone.
Any questions? (more…)
Shortly after Google announced Android 5.0 “Lollipop,” Motorola was quick to begin pushing an update of it out to the Moto G (2nd gen) and Moto X (2nd gen) “Pure Edition.” The update most definitely made its way onto the Moto X, as we went hands-on immediately and have since been running it for months.

The Moto G (2nd gen) appears to be one of the first non Nexus or Google Play Edition devices to receive the newest update to Android 5.0.1, according to a reader of ours who picked up the update within the last hour. The build showed up on his phone as system version 22.21.25 and build number LXB22.46-25. It’s tough to tell if there is a wide rollout on the verge of happening or if he is simple a lucky early receiver. (more…)
With Android 5.0.1 and 5.0 OTA updates rolling out to most Nexus devices at this point, we wanted to make sure our Google Play Edition friends were caught up as well. The Android 5.0 updates have been rolling out to the G Pad 8.3 and Z Ultra for a couple of days now, but we are just now getting updates for the One (M7) and One (M8) after a couple of delays.
As we have done with Nexus updates for years, we have put together a list of direct downloads for you below for your Google Play Edition device. We currently do not have Moto G or Galaxy S4 updates, but will hope to add them soon. (more…)
