Android 5.0.2 Rolling out to the Moto G (2013) in Germany

February 20, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

If you’re in Germany and own a Moto G (2013), it’s about that time to start mashing the update button. As it appears that Motorola is pushing out Android 5.0.2 Lollipop to the Moto G (2013) right now. At least to those in Germany. While users in Germany are seeing this update now, it should be available to anyone in Europe as the same model of the Moto G (2013) is sold throughout Europe. As usual, the update is rolling out rather slowly. This is typically to be sure that there are no show-stopping bugs before everyone gets it. We’ve seen in the past an update that bricks devices, and Motorola doesn’t want to brick every Moto G (2013) in Europe, and I can’t blame them.

The Moto G (2013) was the first smartphone that really was a success for Motorola in quite sometime. In fact, it quickly became their top selling smartphone ever. Again, that shouldn’t be a surprise as it as the only smartphone that was sold on multiple carriers here in the US and sold outside of the US. Before this, most of their smartphones were exclusives either in the Droid line for Verizon, Atrix for AT&T or Photon for Sprint.

Motorola has been a bit slow with rolling out Android 5.0.x Lollipop to their smartphones lately. We’re assuming it’s due to some sort of bug, that was fixed in Android 5.0.2, but the Moto X (2014) has it (most models do anyways) and a few of the Moto G (2014) models have it as well. Now we can add the Moto G (2013) to that list. Hopefully we see the Moto X (2013) added to that list very soon as well as the Motorola Droid Turbo. How many of you in Germany are looking forward to getting this Lollipop update onto your Moto G (2013)? Be sure to let us know in the comments down below.
