Motorola DROID Turbo's Android 5.1 update arrives at last

Motorola DROID Turbo's Android 5.1 update arrives at last
As promised, the Motorola DROID Turbo finally started receiving Android 5.1 today as Verizon pushed out the update OTA. Motorola had decided that the well-spec'd handset would go straight from Android 4.4.4 to Android 5.1. Owners of the device were beginning to get agitated with Motorola on social media until recently, when Senior Director of Software Product Management David Schuster started updating users on his Google+ account.

Yesterday, we told you about Motorola's posted changelist for the update. Today, Verizon has posted its own list of "benefits"for the phone. That list can be found by clicking on the sourcelink. The carrier also recommends that you have a minimum of 40% battery life (20% while charging) before beginning the updating process.

Because the update is being sent out in waves, it might not even reach your DROID Turbo for a few days yet. Be patient, and when you least expect it, the notification will appear on your phone.

Oh look, no relentless WiFi notifications telling me networks are available and that I'm connected to my WiFi like their other flagship phones on Lollipop. Maybe I'll actually buy this phone on contract.

By far the best the best phone I've owned so far. Durable, greatbattery life, great camera, fast, and good size. Totally worth it. Especially now with lollipop.

Only problem is you either can't use phone and data at the same time or you can only use the phone on 4G, which is maybe 70% where I'm at, and 30% in my own home.

You can. There was an update to fix that HD calling issue

Uh, no, that was the fix to add HD Voice because it had neither that nor voice + data, so you're not realizing that HD Voice is on 4G only so that if you're on a call and lose 4G you drop the call. So you either have voice + data + HD Voice or you only voice OR data. Ask a Verizon tech if you think I'm wrong, then show me where I'm wrong.
