This time, Nexus devices are not the first one to receive the update to the new Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update has created a lot of expectations, as it’s one of the biggest updates of Android history. All the manufacturers are engaged in a race to bring the update to their flagship devices, and currently, Motorola is clearly the winner. The Moto G 2014 Edition is the first device to receive an official update, even before Google roll out the new version to the Nexus family devices.
Nexus has always been known for running the newest software available, and this time it seems that Nexus owners will have to wait a bit longer to get an official version of Lollipop on their devices. However, it’s just a matter of time, and we can probably expect to see a lot of Lollipop updates rolling out during the next weeks.
