Moto X (2013) From AT&T In Soak Test For Android 5.1

July 7, 2015 - Written By Diego Macias

Motorola’s Moto X is a symbol as the new direction that the company took back in 2013. It could be considered a flagship device, but it didn’t have the most current specs, the screen at 4.7 inches, was considered kind of small as soon as it was announced, plus it had only HD resolution. The processor was already from a previous generation and its camera, despite including a 10-megapixel sensor, did not get very positive reviews. Still, the phone had some very positive aspects, first of all, the design was not about creating a super thin phone, but rather a very ergonomic one as can be seen in its curved back and even the dimple with the company’s logo for a nice rest of the finger while holding it. Speaking of the back of the phone, the level of customization of the hardware is still unparalleled, users could choose from various color options and even some different materials like wood.

On the software side, it featured one of the least altered skins on top of Android and it was enhanced by the voice recognition assistant and some gestures to launch certain apps like the camera. Overall, Motorola showed that a product should not have the latest specs to be relevant as the experience is more important than what’s written on paper.

Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is the latest version of the operating system and it’s slowly reaching some devices and Motorola has been updating its more recent devices as well as the first-generation Moto X and this update will make its way to the locked devices from AT&T relatively soon. Let’s remember that the update is sent by Google to the rest of the companies, then the companies start making some soak tests in which they send the update to a few devices so they could fix any bugs or issues. Finally, it’s up to the carriers to approve or modify the update and then release it to their customers. Apparently, some users from AT&T have been getting invitations to participate in a soak test, and although it is not specified, it probably has to do with the aforementioned update and it shouldn’t take too long after it hits the totality of the first-generation Moto X’s from this carrier.
