The first DROID Turbo was made by Motorola and carried as a exclusive series by Verizon. It took seven-plus months for the phone to get the upgrade from Android KitKat to Lollipop. The DROID Turbo 2, forged from the same partnership, was released just before November. Take this as a good sign, but not a full stop.
After a lengthy and staggered test period, Verizon is finally passing through an Android Marshmallow update — typical features like Now on Tap, volume controls and also changes to Moto Assist and Moto Actions — for the DROID Turbo 2, currently on version 5.1. Three and-a-half months beats six and is closer to the average length of time it takes for manufacturers to update existing devices to the current version of Android.
Thing is, Verizon posted an update changelog to the Turbo 2’s product page, but then shortly took it down. The source link led to a nonexistent page as of press time.
Again, good sign, but not a full stop.
