Four months after making its official debut, Android 6.0 Marshmallow has finally been installed on more than 1 percent of compatible devices.

Google’s latest update is expected to get a boost in the comping months as new devices from Samsung, LG, HTC, and others go on sale — but that figure is pretty depressing at this point.

Motorola has dismissed claims that it is ditching the Moto G and Moto E, and insists that recent comments made by a Lenovo executive were misunderstood.

Lenovo has confirmed that the midrange Moto G and entry-level Moto E are dead as Motorola — now dubbed “Moto by Lenovo” — switches its focus to high-end devices. Lenovo will continue to offer more affordable smartphones as part of its Vibe range.

Motorola, or “Moto by Lenovo” as it should now be known, will put fingerprint scanners inside all of the flagship smartphones it releases this year.

Those devices will also be equipped with 5-inch displays or larger, with Moto’s smaller, more affordable offerings now integrated into Lenovo’s lineup.

Lenovo is killing the Motorola brand name almost a year after it purchased the company from Google in a deal worth $2.91 billion.

Premium smartphones will use the “Moto by Lenovo” name going forward, while budget devices will be integrated into Lenovo’s Vibe lineup.
