    Anyone got any assumptions on when the update may hit the UK?

    I could use some help with a couple of things with Android 5.1, if anyone has the knowledge....

    When my phone was on 4.4.4, I was able to select a British voice for "Touchless Control". Since the update, it's defaulted back to that grating American female voice. Is there a way to change it back?

    My Power Toggle doesn't seem to work for toggling Data on/off anymore. Now when I push on the toggle button, it brings up the data settings menu, where I then have to toggle it on/off. I was under the impression that 5.1 was supposed to make things FASTER....

    With Android 5.0 and above, Tasker can no longer toggle on/off the cell radios (the best alternative for not being able to toggle on/off Airplane mode).

    All in all, it seems that with this update, I've traded functionality for some pretty colors, and I'm not very pleased about it. Does anyone know of any workarounds for these things?

    I don't have lollipop but if you haven't tried it already, try wiping your cache partition or uninstalling, reinstalling your power toggle app. There was at least one person who said that worked for the app. Maybe the wiping cache might get the British voice back too?

    Got it just now. So now I'm looking for a document that describes all changes, MotoX specific, since Kit Kat. Any help?

    Thank you for your help. This seems to have fixed the British voice issue. But it seems that the Data toggle thing is a System issue. For "security" purposes, Google has blocked these toggles from working any longer. In order to get that functionality back, I would have to Root the phone.

    I don't understand this... If Android is supposed to be the "open" platform, why is it that with each new OS release, more and more of the system settings are blocked off?

    Have you tried long pressing the toggle?

    Anyone know if AT&T will run a soak test week(s) before their version as well? It's been so long since the last update I can't remember how long it took us to get it after the vanilla version.

    Hey guys, on your moto x, when you use a voice recorder app, is the volume of the sound extremely low compared to other devices?

    I just got my moto x recently and this is bugging me, is it a software or hardware issue? if it is a hardware issue should i return the phone as it may affect the quality of my phone calls too?(haven't made a phone call yet, getting my nano SIM soon) if it's a software issue do you guys think they will fix it in the lollipop update?
    It's a software issue with the voice recorder app. If you record video, the audio is fine - so this verifies it is not a hardware issue. The voice recorder app may be utilizing the incorrect microphone on the Moto X..

    Given the horrible nightmare of my Nexus 7 on Lollipop, where I had to root just to revert to KitKat, I am more than happy to stay with KitKat on my Moto X 2013.
    Ditto!

    5.1 is running smooth. Only trouble I had was with Youtube app not playing videos, but a reboot of the phone fixed that. I did NOT do a factory reset. I don't see any performance difference from KK, it's just as smooth. No stutter. I like the new features, esp the pulldown shade.

    "Mobile Standby" is draining my battery. It's responsible for nearly 30% of my battery usage since last night. Is anyone else seeing this with "Mobile Standby" in their battery usage? This was something that never occurred on 4.4.4, and i don't know what's causing it now.

    After 24 hrs, Lollipop has given me more trouble than it's worth.

    Wow. Mine came off the charger at 7 AM and now at 6:25 PM it shows I have 60% charge or approximately 17 hours left. Oh, Mobile Standby shows 1%. I'm thrilled.

    Often after large android updates, wiping the phone and reinstalling your apps is the best option. Rogue apps from kit kat running on android are deadly for battery life.

    What was your SOT for this period? How about cell signal strength?

    I'm guessing that with KitKat and similar usage, you were getting worse battery life?

    I'm on Verizon and am patiently waiting for L. Improved battery life would be huge for me.

    Bar is half green and the rest alternates between red and yellow. (I was out of town for several hours this afternoon.)
    WiFI shows a solid green bar.

    I would say yes. Presently I have been off the charger for 15 hours and have 49% charge left.

    That's much better battery performance than what I would expect to get under similar conditions and usage. Thanks for posting this.

    I hope I see similar improvement

    That's stock Lollipop's Ambient Display. If you turn that off (Settings - > Device - > Display - >Ambient Display) then go to Settings - > Device - >Moto and select "Display" in that screen, you can set up to use Moto Active Display. That will remove the constant notification on your lockscreen

    Mega were you in the soak or have an unlocked? I didn't think At&t had released yet.

    Thank you for the advice. I reset the phone and re-installed everything. I no longer have the "Mobile Standby" issue draining the battery. But a new problem has cropped up: Since the factory reset, Mobile Data doesn't work. Everything else works fine though. I've tried rebooting, reinserting the SIM card, resetting the APNs.... No dice.

    Just one issue after another. It's times like these that I feel like going back to my flip phone.

    You can have the unlocked edition on AT&T.
