Motorola has been setting new benchmarks when it comes to budget smartphones. After offering stock Android UI, water and dust resistance and a great battery life in the Moto E, the Lenovo-owned company is now bringing the latest Android 5.1 update to it. In this price range, only Android One smartphones have received the Android Lollipop 5.1 update. The update is being rolled out only to the Moto E (2nd Gen) 4G LTE variant and not to the 3G variant.
The latest update brings plethora of improvements, mostly around Wi-Fi not reconnecting automatically in the home network. It also fixes the heads up notification bug that removed the notification from the drop down notification menu when users swiped it from the lock screen.
In case you haven’t yet received a notification of the update, you can update the device yourself. All you need to do is, go to the Settings app, scroll to the bottom, and tap on ‘about phone’. Then click on the ‘system updates’ option and select “Yes, I’m in”. After the software is downloaded, select “Install now”. After the software is installed on your device your phone will re-start automatically. There are chances that Motorola might roll out the update in phases and it might take some time to hit your device.
