One of the great advantages of having a Motorola (in most cases) is that since his fleeting passage through Google before being sold to Lenovo, all their mobile adopted the wise way to install AOSP Android, i.e. the same (almost) installation carrying the Nexus of Mountain View, pre that when comes the time to upgradethe process is much easier and faster to that in the case of other manufacturers whose layers of customization it invade everything. And with the Moto X 2014 something similar happens.
Motorola is already testing Android 5.1
So it is normal that are already appearing ‘changelogs’ of this installation are tested and will incorporate some of the improvements that we explain when this new version of the OS mobile came out officially. Obviously, it seems evident that Android 5.1 Lollipop is much closer to leave than you could imagine and there are some important innovation than any other, those that we did not expect to enjoy in a mobile phone that was not a Google Nexus.
Which one? That has to do with the protection of the device which, for now, is something that only is operating in 6 Nexus and Nexus 9, and that when we lose the terminal remains locked until we started meeting with our Google account. You will think that it already Android does this for a long time, but now that ‘login’ is maintained even when the terminal is deleted completely and they restored it with factory settings.
What else does this update?
Although many of the options are inherited from this update 5.1 for Android, Motorola will take to correct problems that users have been reporting in recent months with Lollipop, as it is the case of the camera, where they will improve their performance, reduce noise in low-light photos and increase the capacity of the front sensor response when we get us some ‘selfie’. That line is also correcting problems in this new Android virtual machine ART, enabling of application load times are much shorter and, therefore, is done with greater speed and fluidity within the system.
Finally, Motorola wants to correct other many ‘bug’ found in recent times as the clock in the status bar that is not updated, the deletion of messages when the SIM card is full, there is no sound of the buzzer while making a call, Chrome fails to operate when starting it, ‘resets’ continued when Netflix is in operation, problems connecting to Wifi networks known or after periods of inactivity (such as nights), failure to unlock the SIM card with the PIN/PUK codes, etc.
