Re: Droid Turbo 2 Marshmallow update.

I just looked at the Verizon web site and it appears they do not offer Nexus.

Do we have to switch carriers to get a Nexus?

I would love to let Google have control over the updates vs Verizon. My Chromebook gets updated on a regular basis where my phone is always behind on Security updates.

I find it funny that Verizon locks the phone and bootloader tight but totally ignores Google Security updates,

You buy the Nexus phone directly from Google or from third party sites like Amazon or Best Buy. By not having Verizon or the other carriers sell the phones, Google keeps better control over the updates and inventory.

I got mine, and all looks good so far, but still no message "badges" (the little red ball in upper right of app icon on screen showing unread messages for facebook, outlook, gmail, etc.) Guess I got spoiled having them on my last 3 Samsung phones, and it's not a priority for Verizon or Motorola.....

That is a Samsung customization. It isn't on the stock Android. If you really want the "unread" badges, I would suggest sticking with Samsung or the fruit phones. Personally I despise the "unread" badges.

ATHLON399, I know there is much anticipation about the update. They do take time to condition to your phone.This is done so that your phone doesn't crash with everyone trying to update at once. If the software update shows as available, but won't work, please restart your phone and try again.


Keep us updated.
