US Cellular Moto X (2014) gets Lollipop update

Heads up, Moto X (2014) owners on US Cellular, there's an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop waiting for you. US Cellular's Moto X joins the unlocked, Verizon, and UK versions of one of our favorite Android smartphones in getting an update to Google's very latest OS.

The update, naturally, brings the full Lollipop experience to the Moto X, including the swanky new Material Design visual language, improved battery saver tools, and a revamped notification drawer and multitasking app switcher.

Users seeking to update their Moto X should expect to need around 400MB of free storage to complete the update.

Thanks to Tyler for the tip!

  • Dang what is taking ATT, TMO, and Sprint so long??
  • Sprint and TMO do not carry the Moto X (2014). The Pure version, bought from motorola, can be used on TMO, however. I agree that ATT is taking an inordinate amount of time.
