It was assumed that the Nexus 4, 5 and 7 would receive the latest version of Googles Android operating system before any other handset. This is the usual approach and one of the reasons Android fans flock to the Nexus range.
However Motorola has stolen the march on Google and managed to get the Android 5 update for the Moto G 2014 released this morning, just before the expected Nexus update. The update appears to be hitting the second generation Moto G released in 2014 rather than the first generation 2013 release of the handset. The devices themselves are very similar so it’s possible that an update might pop up for the 2013 Moto G very soon.
Nexus owners can expect to see Android 5 any day now. The original release date was missed after a critical WiFi bug was reported just days before the update was due to appear.
If you are seeing Android 5 hitting your device then let us know.
