The Motorola Moto G (2015) is now being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Motorola has just started updating the 3rd-gen Motorola Moto G to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. In the past weeks, Motorola has updated most of its 2015 smartphones to the latest version of Android, and now it's time for the latest iteration in the manufacturer's cost-effective Moto G series to receive the same treatment.

As seen on previously-updated Moto handsets, Motorola's implementation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow is a near-stock one. As such, the new features are limited to the ones that Google has baked right into the 6.0 version of its mobile operating system. You can head on over to our full Android 6.0 Marshmallow review for a detailed analysis of the latest Android version, but if you just need a refresher, the main new features include granular app permissions, extended support for microSD cards, Now on Tap (basically Google Now on steroids), as well as a new battery-saving Doze mode.

Even running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the Motorola Moto G (2015) is considered one of the best value-for-the-money smartphones of the year. The hardware specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU and an Adreno 306GPU, a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP secondary shooter on the front, as well as a 2470mAh battery. In the memory department, the Motorola Moto G (2015) is available in two versions: either 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage or 2GB of RAM and 16GB of integrated storage space.

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the 3rd-gen Motorola Moto G - which measures 2GB in size - is rolling as we speak to unlocked units in the US and Canada, with more regions and carrier-branded versions expected to follow shortly. 

What do you guys think? Does the Motorola Moto G (2015) gain even more weight in the mid-range segment of the market now it is being updated to the latest Android version?
