Moto G (2014) owners get some Lollipop lovin'

While Nexus smartphone owners are sitting around waiting for an official Android 5.0 Lollipop update from Google, it appears that owners of Motorola’s second generation Moto G smartphone are now receiving their OTA update. The news comes courtesy of Ars Technica, which states that the update for the 2014-model Moto G started arriving last night.
According to Ars Technica, the Lollipop update for the latest Moto G weighs in at 386.7MB.
Considering that Motorola’s handsets for the most part stick to a stock Android interface (save for a few Motorola apps and hardware-specific tweaks), users will be able to experience Lollipop in all of its “Material Deign” glory without being hindered by OEM skins.

Motorola isn’t the only company to roll out Lollipop updates this week; LG performed a limited rollout of the mobile operating system just for G3 users in Poland. The company plans to expand its rollout to additional countries before the end of the year.
In addition, Google is working on some last minute battery-drain issues to rollout the update to Nexus users, while both Sony and Samsung are committed to upgrading their 2014 model handsets.
