Moto G 2015 Upgraded To Android 6.0 Marshmallow – What’s New?

9

Android 6.0 Marshmallow isn’t the most expected OS from Android’s history, but like always, the users are anxious to upgrade their devices, in order to try out the new features. Google has done a pretty good job with Marshmallow, and now, after the launch of the Nexus 6X and 6P, which come loaded with it, the company starts rolling out the new version first to its collaborators, and Motorola is one of the privileged ones. The Moto G 2015 will get this update soon, but the OS will rollout first to the devices that are connected to Sprint.

This isn’t a rumor, because Motorola already confirmed that the OTA update will be available for its Moto G and it will roll out automatically, but the Taiwanese manufacturer advised the Sprint customers to connect to a WiFi network when downloading the update, because the file will be large and it will consume their mobile data.

If you’re one of those eligible users, but you don’t want to wait until the version will be available for your device, you can manually update your phone, after checking if the update is available through Settings > About phone > System updates. Motorola isn’t the only company spoiling its users, as Sony already talked about its plans to bring the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its flagships.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow – Features

Google has improved its existing system and all the built-in applications. Marshmallow has now support for fingerprint readers, a new battery saver called Doze, Apps Permissions, app drawer and the software is more stable. The users who will want to make mobile payments, they can use attach their MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express cards, or they can opt for the Google Pay payment system.

The Moto G 2015 was released in September 2015 and it comes with a 5-inch IPS LCD screen which has an acceptable resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 294 ppi, it’s powered by a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 quad core processor clocked at 1.4GHz and it supports 1GB or 2GB of RAM, depending on the storage option, because the lower capacity is associated with 8GB of internal memory, while the other variant has 16GB of storage. The device is water resistant and has a 13MP camera with dual-LED flash on the rear panel, while the front camera is 5MP.
