Good news for users using the Moto E 1st Gen handset, Motorola has started rolling out Android Lollipop 5.1 update for this device in India. Some users might have already got the notification and some might have already updated.
If you have not received the notification you manually check for updates in system – about – software update. Make sure you have a stable net connection, preferably Wi-Fi. Download the update and before installing make sure the battery percent is at least 50%, better still keep it at over 75%.
Most likely your data will be intact but would be better if you take a backup. Once the update is done the phone will be running Android 5.1 lollipop. In most cases you will not encounter any issues. But if after the update you feel the system is slow, laggy etc, try a factory reset it might fix the issues.
If you are using the Moto E 1st gen handset and have updated to Android lollipop, do leave your feedback.
