    How does Apple manage much more quicker and simultaneous updates which hardly any android device oem are able to match? And I am not talking about the time between aosp release and oem release for the same update, why are their roll-out “phases” so stretched out.

    I am in Bengaluru and got the update 5.0.2 for my Moto G 1st Gen yesterday evening. After using it for over a day thoroughly, I found the new UI a refreshing one. It did run smoothly most of the time and I noticed a bit of a lag occasionally. I am sure you will enjoy the new flavour of Android.
