Verizon's website lets you try out Android 5.1 for the Motorola DROID Turbo
Many Motorola DROID Turbo users have been complaining on social media sites about the fact that their pride and joy remains stuck on Android 4.4.4. Last month, a Verizon device engineer said that the well spec'd model would receive Android 5.1 in the middle of June. Tomorrow is the halfway point of the month, and there is no sign of the update for the device. Last week, David Schuster, Senior Director of Software Product Management at Motorola, took to social media to say that the update is still in the test lab cycle.

While Motorola DROID Turbo owners can't experience Android 5.1 on their handset right now, they can get an idea of what their phone will look like following the installation of the update thanks to a simulator on Verizon's website. To check it out, simply click on the sourcelink.

With the simulator, you can see what the DROID Turbo will look like on Android 5.1 for all sorts of applications running the gamut from making calls to navigating a website. To use the simulator, click on the application that you want to see from the selections available on the bottom of the page. Scroll down on the small vertical bar on the right.

We got the impression from Mr. Schuster's comments that Android 5.1 is not exactly around the corner for the Motorola DROID Turbo. Until it arrives, this is the next best thing to seeing it on the device.
