Motorola starts Android 5.0 Lollipop soak test for Moto E in India

Motorola starts Android 5.0 Lollipop soak test for Moto E in India

Motorola has already released Android 5.0 Lollipop update for both generations of Moto G  and Moto X in India, and looks like the company now plans to extend the latest Android iteration to its uber-cheap Moto E.

Just like Moto G and Moto X, the company is conducting the soak test in India, and has begun inviting members from Motorola Feedback Network.

Subscribers of the feedback program who happen to be using a Moto E handset can test Lollipop on their device and give feedback. If the soak test progresses without any issues, Motorola will then release an over-the-air (OTA) update for Moto E owners soon.

Motorola devices, namely Moto G, X and E, have been running stock Android, without any layers of customisation. The company is also known to relese timely software updates for its devices, as seen in the past. However, it seems to have delayed in case of the Lollipop update.

In the budget segment, Moto E, has been doing very well, and compelled its rivals to come up with devices in the sub-7k price range. In fact, in the past 10 months, the company has disclosed to have sold 24,00,000 units of Moto E and Moto G, and 6,00,000 units of Moto X.

The Moto E was designed to be beginner’s smartphone and for that, it did its job brilliantly.
