Some of the early flyers of the Android 5.0 Lollipop flag are starting to get the update. We already told you about the LG G3 getting the patch, while Google's own Nexus device have also received it, as had NVIDIA's Shield Tablet. Next up is the Verizon version of the Moto X 2014, the latest smartphone flagship from Motorola.Along with Android 5.0, Motorola has also included a number of other changes into the hefty 678.6MB file. Of course, Lollipop brings with it Material Design and a better look for the nearly stock Android Moto X, including "complex views and fluid animation." It also adds real-time shadows, ripples and 3-D images to the handset. The Calendar app has been bumped to and now includes a new "schedule view" and notifications are easier to deal with post update. Some of the Motorola exclusive changes include a feature that lets the user see a notification with the display turned off, while there is also a new flashlight included. However, some expected changes are absent as there is no VoLTE or Advanced Calling 1.0 found on the changelist. With a file this size I would definitely recommend you pull it with a solid Wi-Fi connection, and Motorola says you will need to be 75% charged to grab the patch. As is usually the case, this is a staged over the air update, so if you haven?t already got it you may have to play the waiting game for a few days.
