Owners of last year's Moto G phones have not been forgotten – Lollipop inbound "soon"

It comes in the form of an update for the Motorola Update Services app. In its changelog, one can see that the app needs to be updated in order to be ready for a future Moto G Lollipop upgrade. How far into the future that would be – we can't really tell.
Hardware-wise, the old Moto G is still pretty much on-par with this year's iteration of the model. They both sport a Snapbragon 400 SoC with 1 GB of RAM – the 2014 edition Moto G has a slightly larger screen (5" on the new model, 4.5" on the old), higher resolution camera (8 MP on the new, 5 MP on the old), and a slight bump in internal storage (16 GB vs 8 GB). With such a negligible upgrade, the original Moto G is obviously still quite relevant, and making the decision to keep it is a natural decision. It's good to see that Motorola acknowledges that and will keep its users up-to-date.

This actually has one of the nicest displays I have ever seen. It's nicer than the iPhone 6, Alpha, and Z3 compact display. I don't know if that is impressive on Motorolas part or sad on everyone else's part. To be fair, this display is also nicer than both the Moto X and all their other flagship displays so maybe it's not impressive and just a fluke.

I agree that the display is impressive, but it's not as good as you're trying to make it out to be. My mom has the Moto G and I can see pixelation in the display (even though it has 329 ppi, I can still see it because of the pen-tile display). I've checked out the iPhone 6, Note 4, and other flagships and are very impressed by their displays, and they are better than that of the Moto G.
