Changelist posted for Motorola DROID Turbo's Android 5.1 update
David Schuster, Motorola's Senior Director of Software Product Management, confirmed on his Google+ page today that a soak test has been started for the Motorola DROID Turbo's Android 5.1 update. Schuster also noted that if everything goes as planned, the long awaited update will go out later this week.

Motorola has already posted its Release Notes for the update, which includes a changelist. The update will include Material Design, Lock Screen notifications, a new Recent Apps menu, and new battery features. The phone will now show an estimate of how much time remains until the battery is empty. It also features a battery saver mode that extends the life of your battery by reducing the phone's performance and background operations.

After the update, making a chopping gesture twice while holding the phone will turn on the flashlight. You can also pin an app or game to the screen to prevent your kids from navigating elsewhere when you lend them your phone. And the ART compiler will speed up the opening of apps on your DROID Turbo. The complete list can be found on the sourcelink.

Motorola suggests that you have your battery charged to at least 50% before downloading and installing the update. In addition, you should be connected to a Wi-Fi network when starting the updating process.

If you own the Motorola DROID Turbo, your long wait for Android 5.1 is almost over.
