Motorola’s David Schuster has simply taken to Google+ to announce that the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini will not be receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop. No explacountry was provided for the skipped upday, though the company is offering influenced Droid customers some coupons on new smartphones for their troubles. If you take place to very own any of these tools and also would like a new-and-improved Moto phone, you have actually the choice to case a pair discounts on Motorola’s site.

Do you have an Ultra, Maxx or Mini through an energetic phone number? If so, you have the right to register to get the Droid Turbo 2 for $524 (typically $624), or the Droid Maxx 2 for $334 (normally $384). This market expires Thursday, May 19th, and also promo codes have to be reconsidered by Thursday, June second.

While I’d like to say this news is surpincreasing, it really isn’t at this suggest. Ever considering that the entirety 2015 Moto E debacle a couple of months ago, it’s been clear to customers that Motorola just isn’t as concentrated on updating their tools as they once were. Whether that’s because of Lenovo purchasing the company is yet to be figured out, but it’s definitely possible.

It’s unfortunate that Motorola is throwing money at the trouble and also hoping for a solution. Plus, the 2 gadgets that it’s discounting for 2014 Droid owners aren’t exactly intended to obtain timely updays either. The Droid Turbo 2 introduced via Lollipop after Marshmpermit was already released to the masses, and the Maxx 2 is still on Android 5.1. Oh, and also remember Verizon’s Droid Turbo? That gadget didn’t get Android Lollipop until 8 months after Lollipop was first announced. I can see a pattern below, and also it’s not a pretty one.

If you uncover yourself still using the Ultra, Maxx or Mini and also aren’t too came to with software updates, you can want to offer the Turbo 2 or Maxx 2 a swarm. Those are great phones. But you can likewise desire to think about the Moto X Pure Edition, which also functions on Verizon’s network and also gets software updates in a timely manner.
