Android 5.1 stuffed in Droid Turbo as soon as possible
Android 5.1 in Droid Turbo:
Motorola DROID Turbo is a smartphone beast that combining the over-the-top specs of the Google Nexus 6 with the more manageable size of the Moto X and throwing in a huge battery for good measure and the only downer is that it is available exclusively only from Verizon that does not have the best track record for the android updates. Inspite of the fact, that the Moto X 2014 has been sailing on the Lollipop since November and even on Verizon, beside this, the de-branded Moto Maxx for international markets also comes with the Lollipop and the Motorola DROID Turbo is still sailing on the KitKat. Motorola Software Engineer, Mr.Luciano Carvalho could not come with a solution to help in correcting a clickbait headline on a Google+ post and considering this as a slip, Motorola DROID Turbo is now going to be upgraded straight to Android 5.1 and this news comes as a good thing for the people who like a ton of bug fixes and user interface tweaks that makes Lollipop better all around. So far, Motorola’s smartphones run about as close to stock as anything that not made by Google itself and it should make as an already good smartphone considerably as better.
Motorola Droid Turbo is going to be updated with the android 5.1 and the bug free part is a complete invention on their part which is a complex software that running on a complex hardware with the thousands of different environment conditions and thousands of usage variations and presently, it is nearly impossible to make it bug free. Moreover, the decision was made particularly, so that the Droid Turbo can take advantage of the native Voice Over LTE support in Android 5.1. Verizon demands VoLTE support and android 5.1 brings it to the platform and basicall, porting all the VoLTE changes to android 5.0 and then switch to the AOSP solution on android 5.1 would be a huge waste of resources. As there is still no timeframe proclaimed for the android 5.1 update’s rollout and it could be next week or a month after Android 5.2 is announced.
Android 5.1 in Droid Turbo
Verizon Droid Turbo customers have been a little disappointed that the smartphone is still now stuck on Android 4.4 KitKat whereas other Motorola devices have already acquired the Lollipop update and a new report now suggests that the smartphone will be directly updated to Android 5.1 which states that it will leapfrog over Android 5.0 in the process as for now. Even- though, this is something of about the news that has been already with the past future updates as well and will save a lot of time for the company as well as the carrier and instead of having the issue in two separate updates, Motorola now, can directly send out this update that has some crucial changes when compared to Android 5.0.2 and it is important to note that the Verizon Nexus 6 was among the first in the U.S. to sail Android 5.1, so that the carrier is on the right path to wipe its poor update track record. It has been said that Verizon’s insistence on having VoLTE support built into the software is the reason for Android 5.1 is being issued directly and subsequently, it is a good news for the customers of the Droid Turbo, even-though waiting is expected.
Without much queries, Android 5.0 Lollipop was one of the biggest and buggiest firmware updates in the Google’s mobile OS and even though, Motorola did not have such a tough time with it, getting things approved by Verizon is typically a much longer process which is specifically true when talking about a Verizon exclusive DROID device like the Motorola DROID Turbo. Moreover. Android fans all over the world were complaining about not receiving a buggy Android 5.0.2 update, that had happened with the Android 5.1 and it is the absolute latest version of Lollipop which just so happens to squash most major bugs and introduces some smaller user experience improvements and more importantly, VoLTE support. For the handsets like the Motorola DROID Turbo that is currently got stuck with the kitkat limbo was the exact Android version that the Verizon was waiting for before updating their premier Android handset to Lollipop. It was understood that the Motorola’s “Moto” handsets are running a damn near stock Android experience and the Motorola’s “DROID” devices like Verizon’s top of the line Android flagship powerhouse have a little more Verizon in them and more particularly, the time that need to be wait before Android 5.1 roll-out starts to the DROID Turbo is in mystery. But, it is well understood that waiting for Android 5.1 is not agreed and the wish for other OEMs who have yet to update to Lollipop would follow the suit.
