Motorola DROID Turbo to receive Android 5.1 starting on June 10th
posted by Alan F. / Jun 05, 2015, 10:37 PM
The good news is that very soon, DROID Turbo owners won't have to be jealous at all. Starting on June 10th, the Android 5.1 update will begin its journey to all DROID Turbo owners. Since it is being sent out in waves, it might not hit your unit exactly on the 10th. You can try to manually coax it out of your phone by going to Settings > System Updates.
The update, which will have the build number of 23.11.23, will include all of the features from both Android 5.0 and Android 5.1 including Lock Screen notifications, Material Design, the new Recent Apps page, two-finger Quick Settings menu from any page, battery saver mode using Project Volta, 64-bit ART compiler that opens apps faster, new security features and more.
There is no word yet on whether the update will include some bug fixes from Motorola that will help DROID Turbo owners who have been having problems with the phone's 3900mAh battery.
- Display 5.2" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 20.7 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, Quad-core, 2700 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 3900 mAh

I suspect that there's a soak test going on right now. If you go to Settings/About Phone/Systems Updates, it says "System Update Available. But when you press it, you phone says "your device's software is up to date", it'll then show "Install deferred" under status. So hang in there, I expect we should be getting 5.1 Lollipop very soon.

Way too late, but at least it's something. Now if only the update for the 2013 Moto X/Droids was in sight. Whatever, Galaxy S6 here I come. The Droid Mini was my first Motorola phone, and it will be my last.

Little leery of this update. Couple months ago, I lost my perfectly working Nexus 7 2013 that was bricked by a wonderful Lollipop update. Cost me the $279 I paid for it with NO help from Google or Asus. Have already decided I would not spend another dime on Google hardware. Replaced bricked Nexus 7 2013 with Windows tablet. Not looking forward to losing my Droid Turbo to Lollipop also. Only consolation is that my Turbo is still under Verizon Warranty.
