Motorola DROID Turbo is now getting Android 5.1 Lollipop



It’s out, folks: the Motorola DROID Turbo’s Lollipop is now widely available for all to download after a brief soak test. The DROID Turbo was infamously held as one of the last devices in Motorola’s 2014 lineup to see Lollipop, and it didn’t help matters that there were units spotted with the goods in the wild a long time ago.

There aren’t many surprises by now: this is Lollipop (Android 5.1, to be specific), and it brings you up to the most contemporary version of Android available. That brings a whole new slew of features over the previous KitKat firmware, including a new Material Design user interface, lock screen notifications and more.

You’re looking for version 23.11.38.en.US, so get on WiFi, charge up and try to pull it down over the air if you’ve been waiting on this.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Now what do complain about until M starts rolling out for the masses?

    1. They can complain that they’re on 5.1 and not 5.1.1 ;)

    2. The masses? Given that it’ll only be Nexus owners, it’ll be rolling out for the elites.

      1. I guess elites want on screen buttons and 6 hour battery life. I love my Turbo. Love the hardware keys and 2 day battery otherwise I would have gotten the nexus.

  2. Took a couple hours to install, now I have a notification that Google Play Services won’t run unless updated. Of course, no guidance as to how to update Google Play Services!

    1. Keep checking the notification, my play services finally updated (through the play store)

    2. All I did was click on the notification and it took me to the play store to update it.

  3. I completed my download about 6 hours ago and all has seemed to work out. At first a few issues existed such as not able to send a text and my contacts disappeared. Strangely after a few hours of my phone being idle…everything is working fine. I guess they’re using the better late than never idea. Everything runs great now.

    1. Do you get constant WiFi or Location Found notifications?

  4. I love the fact that I don’t need to turn advanced calling on and off anymore. I have to use a network extender at times and it wouldn’t work with advanced calling turned on in KitKat.
