Android 5.1 Lollipop testing for Moto X 2014 Begins

Motorola has been consistent in providing updates to its devices so far and the streak seems to continue. Motorola rolled out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its Moto X 2014 as early as the Lollipop was available on the Nexus devices.


The older version of the Moto X and both the versions of the Moto G have also received the Android 5.0 Lollipop a few weeks back.

Motorola has now initiated the testing of Android 5.1 Lollipop 23.1.28 on the Motorola Moto X 2014 edition. The key aspect of the update would be a feature called as ‘Device Protection’ which protect the user’s data even when the phone is lost or stolen. The device would still require the username and password from the owner even after a factory reset, and this is an important feature which wasn’t available so far.

Apart from the security features, the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will also bring improvements to the Moto X camera’s low light performance by reducing noise. The interface for the front camera will also get an updated view finder along with reduced shutter delay and refresh rates.

We also expect other subtle improvements and performance optimizations characteristic of the Motorola’s touch.
