    Motorola Starting a Soak Test for the Droid Turbo 2 | Androidheadlines.com

    It's probably for WiFi calling. But crossing fingers for Marshmallow!

    I have a hard time believing they wouldn't just wait to include that with 6.0. I bet it is marshmallow considering soaks went out to other moto phone last week.

    I'm really hoping for M. Seems strange to have a soak test just for WiFi calling, but I could be wrong. I'll try not to get my hopes up too much until we know for sure.

    Wow, this would be incredibly good news (and so un-Moto like to get M out so quickly).

    Yep. More than six months prior.

    I have a feeling marshmallow will be faster, but I bet this is a minor update for wifi calling. I guess we'll see soon enough.

    Even if it was, it would be outdated. Google released 6.0.1 today :-/

    There will always be a newer version. There is no way they can plan a release in a week at least we will be beating the galaxy s6 and the g4 which are way more popular phones.

    Assuming this is mm...

    Nothing wrong with dreaming of using a current version of Android.

    I welcome the new update if it is marshmallow and is a good update. If it isn't I'll stay where I'm at my phone is working great. It just isn't feasible to expect the newest update when it's a few days old. If you are waiting for the latest you will always be waiting because by the time it's ready they will have to start on the next one.

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting moto to send out 6.0.1, I was just hoping, for once, I could have been on the latest version of Android. Going on 6 years with Android - have never been on the latest version. It's mainly Verizon's fault.

    I'm perfectly happy to remain with an OS that works, instead of being on the bleeding edge and having bugs crawling all over my phone. I was perfectly happy to wait for Lollipop on the Turbo until the problems were fixed, after reading about the mess that the newly-released version was. I don't buy a phone to do someone else's beta testing, I buy a phone to get things done.

    Well after the initial report of the soak, it has been quiet as far as additional information. Almost cricket like quiet.

    It usually takes a week or so from the initial invitation messages until when the soak actually starts.

    And that's fine, you certainly have the option of ignoring the update. But there definitely those of us eager for this to be released, especially after reading some of the comments in the Moto X Pure forums.

    Just checked David Schuster's Google + page and still no info on the Droid Turbo 2, but he noted several soak tests for the Moto X Force. Hopefully there will be an update sometime this week.

    The Moto X Pure Edition is probably the Turbo 2's real soak test, as Marshmallow has been out for the MXPE for a few weeks now. The phone (software-wise) is pretty identical to the Turbo 2 other than the difference in processor (808 vs 810). Really, all Moto would need to do is take the MXPE 6.x build and add the Verizon-specific apps and there you'd have it.

    The Moto X Force is an identical device, just a different name outside of the U.S. Would just need to add the Verizon bloat and send for approval. Probably already there since the employee edition is already being updated.
