Motorola released the second iteration of its affordable Android smartphone back in September 2014 when the Moto G (2nd gen) came loaded with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. In the meantime, this excellent mid-ranger got its firmware updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop, and this week it finally gets a Marshmallow update as well.

While this Motorola handset for budget-conscious users never got the LTE variant in the US, it gets Android 6.0 before its big brother, the Motorola Moto X (2nd gen). Strange enough, while Moto G (2nd gen) users in the US can already update their smartphones to Marshmallow, there is not a single bit of information regarding the arrival of this update for its more powerful sibling. 

The update brings the usual Marshmallow goodies, such as Doze mode, Google Now on Tap, live permissions features, Direct Share, and so on. In addition to those, two Motorola-exclusive features will be removed once the update completes - Motorola Migrate and Motorola Alert, but this one will still be available for download from the Google Play Store.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
