If you are a Motorola user with either Moto G or Moto X as your smartphone of choice, chances are that you have already received the latest Lollipop update. Now, good news is on its way for Moto E users as they gear up for the latest version of Google’s Android OS.
Similar to what Motorola did for Moto G and Moto X, the company is conducting the soak test in India. It has already begun inviting members from Motorola’s Feedback Network, via its official Facebook page.
With the soak test for the Android Lollipop update on the Moto E now live, subscribers of the feedback program, owning a Moto E, can test out the Lollipop update on their device and offer a feedback for the same.
A lot depends on this soak test, as far as you receiving the Lollipop update on your handset faster is concerned. Accordingly, if the soak test advances without any potential issues, Motorola will then release an over-the-air (OTA) update for the platform for Moto E owners.
In the past, Motorola devices (such as Moto G, Moto X and Moto E) have been running stock Android, devoid of any layers of customisation. Apart from that, although the company is known for releasing timely software updates for its devices, it seems it has hit a roadblock and has been delayed for Moto E’s Lollipop update.
That said, Moto E has indeed been doing pretty well in the budget segment. Not long ago, it actually constrained its immediate rivals to launch devices in the market in the sub-7k price range.
From there, an entirely new price segment in the Indian handset market opened up.
