Second-gen Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto E LTE updated to Android 5.1 on U.S. Cellular

Second-gen Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto E LTE updated to Android 5.1 on U.S. Cellular
Motorola has been in the midst of all of this updating frenzy that has taken over the Android landscape. While its most powerful phone, the Motorola DROID Turbo, remains stuck on Android 4.4.4, that is more a fault that lies with Verizon than with the manufacturer. The latest report calls for a mid-June update to Android 5.1 for the Verizon exclusive.

Today, the U.S. Cellular version of the second-generation Motorola Moto X has started to receive Android 5.1. The update is bringing software version LPE23.32-21 to the device. The U.S. Cellular version of the Motorola Moto E LTE has also started to receive the Android 5.1 update in the form of software version LPI23.29-15. Both units need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network in order to download and install their respective file.

Android 5.1 brings new icons to Quick Settings including the cool looking spinning Auto Rotate icon. Support for HD calls and dual SIM capabilities are a part of the update. One important security feature with Android 5.1 keeps your lost or stolen Android handset from being unlocked until you sign in with your Google username and password, even if the bad guys perform a factory reset of your phone. And the memory leak that frustrated many an Android 5.0 user gets repaired with the new update.

Keep in mind that since the update is sent out on a staggered basis, it might not hit your phone for a few days. Don't pout, yell at your spouse or write your congressman. Eventually you will receive the notification that your handset has received Android 5.1.
