Feel free to ask questions - as soon as we have dates or news to share, we will post it here. Please don't start new threads - this is your place to ask anything you want to about the upcoming OS update. Of course, we may not be able to answer everything. But we can at least volunteer what we know, what we don't know and what we think.

Thanks for organizing a thread like this @AlphaDog...seems like a good idea! This is my opinion of Lollipop on this phone: let's wait until it's stable, tested and ready. New OS updates are always fun & exciting...but let's not rush the party. It will be ready when it's ready. I read an article earlier today that mentioned Google's 5.1 Changelog:
General improvements in system stability
Improved RAM management
Fixes for sudden app closures
Improved battery management
Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
Issues with wireless connections fixed
Problems with Okay Google function solved
Notifications problems solved
Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
Other improvements and changes
I don't have any devices on 5.0 already so I don't know how good or bad it is, and don't have any opinions about it yet. But, personally, if Google made it a point to publish those things in a change log...I would be more than happy to wait and receive 5.1 over 5.0 (even if that means a few more months). All of those things are more important to me personally than having a new OS just for the sake of having it. I am excited to see Android Lollipop on my Maxx, but also have no problem waiting until it is stable and ready.

My wife has Lollipop 5.0 on her Moto X tng. I set it up for her and did not notice any major problems. My use of her phone is limited to the middle of the night when she is asleep but is seems quite stable and she is happy with it. She came kicking and screaming into smartphones with the Razr M and now the new Moto X at my urging. She uses it extensively now and I would not like to try to take it from her. We live "out in the woods" with marginal LTE at our house with VZ but excellent LTE nearby. WiFi works well at home. My Maxx is working great and I have no problem waiting for 5.01 or 5.1 if there are major improvements. I understand there are. @sajokaz, thank you for your posting of the potential changelog. Looks good but "OK Google" is working fine on my Maxx with 4.4.4. It is very impressive and I can wait for the upgrade. As for signal, that is a function of where the LTE towers are in relation to your phone. I am very satisfied with VZ's coverage, especially when we travel. IMNSHO they are still the best and are really making great strides in releasing updates in a timely fashion. Better to wait until it is right than begin a hopscotch thru minor updates.
