    I don't know if posters are serious about this, but there is zero chance the Turbo doesn't get Lollipop.

    I bought an LG G pad 10.1 from Verizon about a month ago and was told it would be upgraded to Lollypop by the sales people in the store. LG starts upgrading the G pad 7, 8.3 and 10.1 today. (4\12\15) Lets see if I get that from Verizon. At least both my tablet and Turbo are on Kit Kat

    I have the original G Pad 8.3 (WiFi only, Non GPE). Am I understanding you correctly that Lollipop is starting to roll out to it today?

    I think you may have seen a Google Play Edition rollout. I check AC daily and haven't noticed the WiFi V500 version mentioned, but I think the GPE was mentioned recently.

    I'd be thrilled to be wrong. My G Pad never even got a 4.4.4 update.

    Does anyone know when Google is going to announce the next software upgrade? Is it June at the Google conference?

    I don't know but that better get Verizon to start pushing out these updates because I'm getting really sick of their bull crap.

    Lollipop update for LG E Series tablets starts on April 12 | Android Central

    Carrier models aren't specifically called out.

    And the update is scheduled to start on April 12th, which gives OEMs room to roll out the update, meaning not everyone will get it on the 12th.

    Only Google knows but they've announced the next release at Google I/O the last few years, so, probably yes.

    Travaz,
    I think I remember hearing it takes at least 6 months for a carrier to go through testing on a device once they've been handed the update from Google.

    There is little chance we would see an update on the Turbo before fall of 2015. And given the fact the Turbo isn't a flagship phone like the Note it may never get it.

    I think that's very possible at this point. Furthermore don't be surprised if there is a class action lawsuit to follow, I think it's happened before for similar reasons.

    [EDIT]
    Ah yes, here it is and funny enough it was against Motorola!!!

    It took 4 years and the consumers got a whopping $25 in the end. Fun times ahead!

    If you become a member of a class action, don't expect much in return. The benefit is typically a penance (think a check for $1.36 four years from now) for a claimant. Your satisfaction will have to come from enriching a team of lawyers.

    Seems to me getting a good Lollipop update for a phone is proving to be difficult. I'd rather have a good Kit Kat if Lollipop is gonna do to my phone what it has done to the G3/S5.

    That 6 month test rumor you heard is plain wrong. The Verizon Moto X received Lollipop in late November, a few weeks after the update posted to aosp. In fact, Lollipop came out just over 6 months now and a large number of phones are carrier approved.

    There is a very, very, very large chance that the turbo gets the update before fall. I'd be surprised if it's not delivered before summer.

    I wish it was a rumor, unfortunately it's not...

    "T-Mobile's Young confirmed that it is typically three to six months from the time they get the new software until it goes live. Simple addition, then, will tell you that it may be as much as nine months for that new software to make it to your device, and that's only if the manufacturers and carriers agree that it's worth devoting the time and resources to update it at all."

    Read the article, it may look like they came out with Lollipop not too long after it became public but they've been working on it a lot longer then what you think.

    The article is over two years old and no longer relevant. David Schuster of Motorola last May said that carrier testing is usually 2 to 4 weeks for each cycle. If it fails testing, they must redesign and resubmit for another 2-4 week test cycle. He was specifically talking about the 2013 Droid series at the time, which is obviously Verizon exclusive.

    If it was 2-4 weeks we'd start hearing about soak tests, which there are none. What Schuster said (if true) was for a regularly scheduled update, they are now off schedule because they messed it up and it takes a lot of resources to do a "do-over". This means it's chances of ever making it at this point are probably 50/50. There are new phones and/or more important phones coming out that will be deemed more important than the Turbo update which will have to take a back seat to those.

    2-4 weeks unless it fails testing, so if it failed testing for some reason then no we wouldn't be hearing about soak tests yet. With all the problems lollipop has had I'd be surprised if it made it through testing on its first try.
    And yes, the Turbo will absolutely get lollipop. Any comments to the contrary are pure nonsense.

    It's not hope. People have lost their minds if they think a phone that was essentially released along side the announcement it would be updated to Lollipop isn't going to get it. It's been less than 6 months since launch and this phone is following the same path the Droid Maxx traveled before it got 4.4.4 (frustrating wait while plenty of other phones got incremental KK updates before leapfrogging them to be one of the first to get 4.4.4).

    Zero chance.

    Soak tests are the last step of a release. Many times Verizon will release the software before the soak is even over. By the time you hear about a soak the software is going to be released.

    Motorola already smashed that when Moto Xs were getting KitKat OTA updates before some Nexus devices were getting OTAs.

    Here's what needs to happen.

    OEMs need to take the source and develop their builds.
    OEMs need to test those builds.

    If it's a carrier device, the OEMs need to submit their Release Candidate to the carrier for carrier testing. The carrier would then approve or send back for changes.

    Once approved, the OEM can press go to push the updates out or make it available for pull.
