If you’re a custom ROM flasher who never waits for official updates from manufacturers, you’ll be delighted to know that there’s now an unofficial CyanogenMod 12.1 ROM that brings Android 5.1 Lollipop to the 2014 Motorola Moto G.
Motorola has already begun testing Google’s latest Android 5.1 Lollipop software for the second-generation Moto X, and the release includes a brand new gesture that allows users to “chop twice for flashlight.”
Motorola is offering up another awesome deal on the Moto X by throwing in a second-generation Moto E, worth $119.99, at no extra cost if you buy before Tuesday, March 24. But there are some caveats.
Samsung snubbed Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 chipset in favor of its own Exynos 7 — reportedly due to overheating issues. And while rivals have spoken out to back the chip, it seems the South Korean company may have been onto something.
Thermal imaging tests indicate the device reaches temperatures of 130° Fahrenheit (55.4° Celsius) under heavy loads.
