Original Motorola Moto X might finally be updated to Android Lollipop this month
The first generation Motorola Moto X will soon be 2 years old, but, before celebrating its second birthday, the handset must be updated to Android Lollipop (as you may know, the phone currently runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat).

Last month, David Schuster, Software Product Management at Motorola Mobility, said that the Android 5.1 update for the Moto X was already in testing, mentioning that, if things went well, the update would arrive "in a few weeks." Well, it looks like things didn't went so well, as the update hasn't been rolled out yet. However, it could be released this month.

David Schuster is now saying that Lollipop testing on the original Moto X started in France and Germany, and later this week it should also start in the US and Brazil. Thus, Moto X owners in these countries might get the final update as soon as "next week." Once again, this will happen only "if all goes well."

As always, carrier versions of the first generation Moto X will likely get the update a bit later, though it should still happen pretty soon. We'll let you know when things start moving.

I personally believe G" is a great phone. In terms of features and its characteristics, I will say G2 is a perfect phone.
