Great, now Marshawn will post about not only his "friend's" iPhone but also his "friend's" Galaxy.
Fucking hell Google.
Apple announced iOS 8.2 today. I got it 5 minutes after I read the announcement.
Now Google announces Android 5.1. Rollout? Sometimes in the next weeks. Maybe. Dunno.
How can Google be so incompetent?
OEMs and carriers pushed Android at the beginning because of that reason: they could modify it and do whatever they want. Now this is becoming a burden, though. If you aren't a pleb and buy intelligently (Nexus, Motorola...) this isn't even a problem anyway.
5.0.2 only just came to the Moto G after being out for MONTHS. So I'm gonna have to wait several more to get this. I wanted a reason to install CM, anyway.

Enjoy the stuttering animations. Don't deny it, LP is a laggy piece of shit on the Moto G. Hopefully this 5.1 update fixes it, though. No point in having 6 million animations if they're going to lag.
It took until May 2014 for the Droid Maxx to get get Kitkat so you're most likely going to have to wait to then. Though I hope my 1.5 year old phone actually gets Lollipop but after having a verizon galaxy nexus, I've lost all hope in my devices actually receiving updates. Though I need to get around to going back to Jellybean since Kitkat caused my phone to get 2 hours less screen on time.
indeed.. as a phone reseller this impacts the profitability of my business... i really hope someone comes with an adb command to cmpletely wipe the phone, not just factoryr esetting it but, actually formatting the partitions and installing a fresh copy.
I'm still on 4.4.4. Is there seriously ANY reason to update my OS? Everything still works. I don't want bright white faggot colors. I don't want to deal with potential bugs, especially since I don't want to lose my current battery life. I don't want to update to something unstable just for the sake of updating; it's a phone, not an Arch desktop.
thing is... if the phone isn-t rooted then youll have no access to a custom recovery to allow for a complete system partitions wipe and installing a fresh android copy from scratch...
Thats of course, if someone from XDA doesnt come up with an ADB package to allow wiping the phone just by putting it in on bootloader mode and flashing a ROM, for Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola devices its really simple nowadays, but with this new update who knows.

Listen here asswipe.
When Apple got the carriers by the balls regarding control over the iPhone, Google bedded them and promised to give them back that control, in exchange of shilling androids in their stores.
Carriers jumped on it, and that's how we got here.
So, in essence, it IS google's fault.
