First-generation Motorola Moto G receives Android 5.0.2 update

First-generation Motorola Moto G receives Android 5.0.2 update
The Android 5.0.2 update is starting to rollout today to the first-generation Motorola Moto G. According to the manufacturer, the update brings Lock Screen notifications, the new Recent Apps menu, the Ambient Display which will show notifications even while the screen is off, and the new two-finger slide gesture that will reveal the Quick Settings menu from any page (and the new flashlight that is part of Quick Settings).

Other new features include the ability to have multiple-user sign-ins, a display showing the estimated time until the battery completely charges or discharges, and the 64-bit ART compiler that speeds up the opening of apps. Smart Lock allows you to use an Android Wear powered device (like a Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch) to unlock your handset.

While the size of the update wasn't listed, we know from other Android 5.0 updates that this is going to be a huge file. Such heavy lifting not only requires a truss, it actually means that you should be on a Wi-Fi connection before downloading and installing the OTA update. Motorola suggests that you have your battery charged to at least 50% before starting the updating process.

One last note. Since the update is being sent out on a staggered basis, you might not see it hit your device for a few days yet. There is no need to get upset. Just when you're about to send a strongly worded letter to Motorola and your carrier, the update will hit your Moto G.

I don't want it... 1 of my friends (US retail version) and my sister (UK retail version) have had it already for a few months. Both of them report more lags and f***ed up battery life. Probably the memory bug from versions 5.0-5.0.2. I uninstalled Moto Update Services and it stopped nagging me about the update.

but they had said that they'll be releasing 5.1x directly, why 5.0.2 then? :/
