Thanks Bobby & Ishan for the tip


  1. I am in Bengaluru and got the update 5.0.2 for my Moto G 1st Gen yesterday evening. After using it for over a day thoroughly, I found the new UI a refreshing one. It did run smoothly most of the time and I noticed a bit of a lag occasionally. I am sure you will enjoy the new flavour of Android.


  2. How does Apple manage much more quicker and simultaneous updates which hardly any android device oem are able to match? And I am not talking about the time between aosp release and oem release for the same update, why are their roll-out “phases” so stretched out.
