    ART does not work fully on the Droid Turbo, it has a known bug when restarting. I would not recommend using it.
    I have experienced this bug as well. For those of you who don't know exactly what happens, Ill fill you in. When turning on the phone, after the boot animation plays, a black screen appears with a pop-up stating "Android is upgrading... Optimizing app X/X" just like it does during a system update. This happens every time you boot the phone, but is likely to get fixed in the 5.0 update.
    ART still works just as it should, however, despite this issue. Still, it would be smart to just leave it at Dalvik for the time being until 5.0 is released. (My prediction: February 24th)

    Matt is spot on. I tried ART and went back for this very reason.

    The Motorola Droid Turbo Android update should be released by February 2015, according to previous announcements from Motorola.

    I don't buy that "should be released by February... according to previous announcements." Motorola has carefully not promised any timing for any updates for the droid series.

    I bet it will happen before the end of February, but I don't think Motorola ever announced timing. The current status of lollipop for the turbo on moto's web site merely says, "This device will be upgraded to the Android 5 Lollipop release of Android, pending partner support." No mention of timing.

    I hope that Verizon will want the turbo to get lollipop update before or around the time the nexus 6 hits their stores ? I read someplace I can't remember were that Verizon is to launch the nexux 6 mid February?

    I don't have a droid turbo but I predicted from the beginning that the nexus 6 will come out around the same time the turbo gets lollipop.

    I read somewhere they are working on a nexus 6 Verizon exclusive. It's supposed to be with a 4000 mah battery.

    That would be surprising, not just due to costs/logistics but also then they'd be directly competing with their Droid line. In all honesty a nexus on VZW is like buying a Ferrari and putting 85 grade gas in it.

    I sideloaded 5.0 on a Nexus 7 and ota nexus 10. I havent seen any performance issues at all. I encrypted both just to see if it caused any issues.

    I have both and my mechs 7 had been updated to 5.02 and had no slowdowns at all, and the battery dies seen to last longer. I will test it later tonight to see if it's just in my head. My turbo rubs great on 4.4.4. So I'm in no hurry to get a botched update. I just wish they had ironed this out first considering they knew the backlash they would be having if there was a delay.

    According to an article on the home page, the Moto G is starting to get Lollipop today. Maybe that's a sign that the Turbo will finally get it in the next few weeks.

    I got it too and I'm pretty sure this is for Lollipop. I did the survey and I'm just waiting to hear back for the next step.

    I wonder if it's just a fix for the advanced calling issues. At this point I'm more interested in that than 5.0.

    Hang in there it will be soon. In the interim get as acquainted with everything concerning your turbo.. all ins and outs.. You can download a more comprehensive owners manual than what comes with the phone.. It can be found on Motorola website.

    I'm guessing its a VOLTE update, which is sorely needed.

    Hopefully its lollipop and hopefully its soon!

    Why? What kickin' new feature in Lollipop is holding back the Turbo from being a great phone?

    How many phones have gotten Lollipop so far? Nexus 5 & 6, Moto G, Moto X? Is that it?

    Yes but we all like the new software smell.

    I was referring to the advanced calling issues. Lollipop can wait until it's really ready IMO. I'm excited for Lollipop but don't want it buggy.

    And, yes, I think you have the devices right...

    Anyone else find it odd that the phone doesn't tell you when it last checked for an update? Just wondering. (I originally decided to reply to my last post but changed my mind and found it impossible to delete this.)
