More often than not, Verizon tends to be on the receiving end of jokes about late updates, though it’s not exactly doing itself any favours. The Verizon Moto X (1st gen) has started its soak test for Android Lollipop, which is probably cause for celebration for owners of the device, but once again makes Verizon a laughing stock when it comes to updates, especially considering how early Motorola has always made its updates available. Users have reported that they have been receiving two updates, one to prime their device, and the second being the full 712MB Android 5.1 update for the device.
As a rule of thumb, once the soak test has completed successfully, it usually takes a week or two for the update to roll out to the wider community, so even though you’ve waited until now, you’ll have to be patient for just a little bit longer.
