The U.S. Cellular Moto X (2014) is getting the update to Android 5.0.2 after we saw Motorola rolling out the update to almost every carrier variant out there. This is a major upgrade for customers of the device, as the 2014 Moto X on U.S. Cellular was running on Android 4.4.4 KitKat prior to this.
The update will introduce an all new user interface and bring features like Ambient Display (which can be used instead of Moto Display), lockscreen notifications, improved Quick Settings/Notifications area and much more. The update is rolling over the air, so it might take some time to hit all variants. If you’re impatient to receive the update, make sure you head over to the Settings and pull an update manually.
The update will have to be downloaded over WiFi and users will have to ensure that the smartphone has enough juice before going ahead with the process.
Motorola utilizes a relatively stock version of Android, so you can expect to see features that you saw on Nexus devices with Android 5.0. That’s not to say that the ROM is completely stock though, as Motorola has some neat features like the Moto Assist, Moto Display, Moto Voice etc which are exclusive to Motorola smartphones.
