Re: Official Lollipop (Android 5.x) News here

I see comments that point to either Motorola or Verizon, but there's a third party... Google. Google may have pushed Lollipop out too quickly. That's where I believe a QA group may not done as robust job as one would have hoped.

From my experience with the Droid Ultra Maxx, the soak would occur over the weekend, with invites usually occurred before the weekend,

I will never get a moto product again, either. Going back to LG. At least if their updates are slow the boot loader can be unlocked and we can update ourselves.

Well, you knew this when you bought the Turbo. It was never sold with an unlockable boot loader. I don't know of any Verizon phone that is - included LG. 



Yes, you can hack around the bootloader in LG, but that is really not the same as unlocking it. And if they do close that hole, then you will be in the same situation. 



As controlling as Verizon is, I would imagine that LG will be forced to close the hole in the near future.

@AlphaDog what I meant by BL unlock just just the ability to flash AOSP/lollipop. Which is available for even the Verizon lg g3 http://forum.xda-developers.com/verizon-lg-g3/orig-development/rom-cyanogenmod-12-0-nightlies-verizon-t2998037

And I had expected the droid turbo to not even need root or an unlocked boot loader, as long as updates were fast, as they have been and was one of the reasons I switched to a moto product. It was between the g3 and Sony z3v and the turbo, and I picked the wrong one for me.

The biggest frustration I have is that the phone came with the statement that it will be updated to lollipop. But simply giving us some information about where the update is in the process would go a long way to alleviating my frustration. We are seeing many other flagship phones getting the update and we are also seeing other moto phones getting attention but silence about the turbo

I expected more people to have patience with the update... The "I want it and need it now, and you will rue the day that you do not give it to me yesterday!" attitude is extremely childish. I went with the Turbo knowing full well it will be awhile getting LP because I enjoy the specs of the phone and how it works now on KK. 



 



It truly is amazing how many people join he forums just to complain about slow updates and that they will never buy a Moto phone again. It is kind of comical to be honest.

My brother's girlfriend has a Verizon S5 with 5.0 and she definitely regrets accepting the download. I'm sick of waiting for lollipop but today was the first time that I thought about how bad it would suck to be on 5.0 or 5.0.1 with no idea if/when you'll get 5.1. At least we know we're going right to 5.1.

The waiting game sucks but going straight to 5.1 was undeniably the best option.

Why anyone would buy the Samsung s6 is beyond me. I looked at the specs and it is the same phone as the s5 with a higher price tag. The only thing it has is a slightly better screen resolution.View original


I am really digging the S6 Edge right now. I played with it the other day at Best Buy and was impressed. I also never thought that I would consider going back to Samesung.  I am kind of bored/over the Turbo at this point but just trying to hold out for the next Moto X.

Is there a difference between the Edge and Regular S6 or is it the same thing?
