Motorola Moto G (2014) becomes first to savor Android 5.0 Lollipop update

Motorola Moto G (2014)

Well technically the Nexus 9 is the first Android 5.0 Lollipop device, but the Motorola Moto G (2014) has become the first smartphone to receive the software update. While manufacturers are hard at work building the update for their flagships, Motorola has managed to beat Google's Nexus line and become the first to bring Lollipop to their devices.

Early reports suggest that the unlocked version of the Moto G was receiving the OTA update today. So it will likely be awhile before the carrier models are updated to the latest version of Android. The company is also working on bringing the Lollipop update for their Moto X (2014).

Last year's Moto G is also expected to receive the Lollipop update, but it is not known when Motorola will update the rest of their devices. The popular device also has an LTE version, and a Google Play Edition model under its name. We reckon it wont be too long, given that all Moto G models have very similar hardware.

One of the reasons Motorola manages to quickly release Android updates is that they offer a near stock experience on their devices. While they do have several experience-enhancing apps, those have been exported to the Google Play Store, so that their updates are sent out quickly without any bloat or burden.

While its not clear how the Moto G managed to beat its flagship Moto X with the update, its likely due to its popularity and lesser customization. Leave us a comment below if you have received Android 5.0 Lollipop on your Moto G 2014.

Motorola Moto G receives Android 4.4.4 update

Motorola Moto G

The original Motorola Moto G is now receiving the Android 4.4.4 update, Unfortunately not all of the models are receiving the update. In fact it is currently rolling out for the XT1032 model, which is the most common international 3G-only version.

The update is rolling out over-the-air and you should receive a notification when the update is ready to be installed. You can alternately check for the update manually under your Settings menu.

Fortunately the folks at XDA have been kind enough to post the update in the form of a ZIP file. If your phone is still running the stock Motorola recovery partition, you can download the update from the source link and flash it right away, though you may face issues on a rooted device. 

Motorola has posted an update notice (version 210.12.61, different from the one posted above) for "all US Retail users," meaning that other versions if the phone sold in the United States might be getting Android 4.4.4 very soon as well.

Obviously when it comes to updates, everyone is waiting on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Motorola has committed to a Lollipop update for the original Moto G, including the LTE version, though predictably there's no date. That may or may not include the carrier specific models released for Verizon and AT&T.

New Motorola Moto G officially announced

New Motorola Moto G officially announced

Today's focus maybe on the newly announced Moto X, but Motorola also lifted the covers on a brand new Motorola Moto G. Actually Motorola hasn't changed too much on this device, and it shares a lot of the same features with last year's Moto G so lets take a closer look and find out what's new.

In terms of hardware, the Moto G comes with a 5 inch display compared to the 4.5 inch one on last year's model. YOu also get front facing stereo speakers, an 8 megapixel rear camera (was 5MP), a 2 megapixel front camera (was 1.3MP) and a microSD card slot. While the original Moto G supports the Wi-Fi a/b/g/n standards, the new one now adds Wi-fi /ac support, meaning you can enjoy up to 1 Gbps download speeds, provided that your ISP and router can supply those, of course. Other than that, the device has the same Snapdragon 400, 1GB of RAM, swappable shells, and software offerings.

Additionally, if you live in Brazil, there is a new dual-SIM DTV model which will receive digital TV signals, so you can watch TV on the go.

The new Moto G will be made available for purchase starting later today, September 5th at noon EST, for just $179 unlocked. As before, it will be released around the world, but the exact regional release has not been detailed just yet.

Motorola Moto G for Verizon receives Android 4.4.4 software update

Motorola is reportedly rolling out the Android 4.4.4 software update for their affordable Motorola Moto G and customizable Motorola Moto X. The updated software brings improved photo results in fluorescent lighting, an adjusted dialer and a built-in copy of Motorola Alert.

The update is being rolled out OTA (over-the-air) and in stages, so it may be awhile before it is available for your device. You can manually check for the updates availability under Settings on your device.

While the jump from 4.4.2 to 4.4.3 is sizeable, but that last bump to 4.4.4 is just a couple of security patches. According to reports the security fix in question is related to CVE-2014-0224, which is an OpenSSL bug allowing a man-in-the-middle attack.
