Yes it's being soak tested by Motorola. Verizon hasn't tested it yet because Motorola isn't done with it. When they finish the soak test then it will be submitted to Verizon for certification and if it passed then it will be pushed out. If not then it's sent back to Motorola for fixing.
No, the Turbo won't be getting 5.0 at all. It is widely published on many sites, such as Techtimes that the Turbo will get 5.1. Just seems like that is taking forever.
How do you know that there is a soak test going on? Just curious. I have seen rumors of that also, dating back to January, but no hard evidence yet. Usually once the soak test is complete, the software is released. I have also heard that the Turbo will go straight to 5.1, but again, all speculation.
I know of people taking the soak test. Go to their website and register your Turbo. In there there is an option for soak testing. If they do another there is a chance you might enter in that one. The current one is closed for new entry.
I dont believe it is still in soak testing by Motorola.
Follow the link bellow select the carrier and phone if need be but it states the following:
" This device will be upgraded to the Android 5 Lollipop release of Android, pending partner support."
Which means Verizon has its hands on it.
If you say so... The emails are out and people are testing the update for the past 2 weeks or so. At this point it isn't submitted by Motorola own time line they gave out over a year ago.
I got the email for the soak testing but I no longer have a Turbo (coworker broke his phone and it was given out as a company loaner). 2 of my coworkers are currently doing it. Feels and looks almost no different than the Moto X (which I do still have).
