    It's about time. Kudos to Lenovo for getting this done and not abandoning the DT.

    Motorola DROID Turbo finally getting Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update

    If you own the DROID Turbo, then you should be looking for firmware number 24.81.5.en.US. Also, this seems to be a fairly sizable download, as it will take up to 25 minutes for your smartphone to upgrade to Marshmallow.

    Looks like its time to get a virtually new Turbo phone. Backup everything. Install Marshmallow. Do factory reset. Get new wallpaper. Sort through apps and only install the ones I use frequently. Get new icon pack. Basically set up the phone again making it look like a different phone.

    Too late, Moto. Our family has switched to Pixels and we're happy we did.

    Davidoo, thanks for the deleted post.

    Or you end up with an old phone that can't handle the new software so it becomes slow and glitchy. And your battery life gets cut in half or worse.

    I remember what Lollipop did to my two year old Razr M and I'm very leery of the upgrade so late in the game.

    Well, I think you mean KitKat, and the Razr M used a crappy old Snapdragon processor. The Turbo uses the Snapdragon 805, which **should** run Marshmallow fine. Comparable phones with the 805 are the Nexus 6, the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S5.

    That's right it was Kit Kat. The Turbo came with KK and upgraded to Lollipop. I just remember my M was pretty much junk not long after upgrading. Part of me wants the upgrade, but another part says no, too late now.

    Hmm... The VZW site makes it look like this is live. Doesn't look like anyone has received it. Has anyone tried to do a manual install?

    Just chatted with a VZW rep. The update will happen on Google's schedule. We can't manually download it via the software tool either. I guess back-up your important stuff and be ready when the update hits your handset.

    I assume you had your Turbo encrypted as apparently those are the only ones that got bricked.

    Got it about a week ago... Part of the soak test.

    No problems with over the air install, although it took about 25 minutes.

    No reset... Or cache clearing... It is still very fast and no noticeable change in battery life.

    The enhancements to mm are fine... But I guess the upgrade is a bit anticlimactic. Best part about it is the Google on tap.

    I am signed up and have been part of every soak up until now. Not sure why they skipped me this time unless I posted too many critical comments on the Moto forums about their delays in updates. I'm surprised it is taking this long for everyone else to get it. On previous soaks it only took s couple of days to go out to everyone.

    running it now, its a worthy upgrade. not sure if its better than the 7.1 crdroid version i was running. i wouldn't take the OTA unless your bootloader is unlocked, this will most likely be the last feature update for this phone and you will be stuck with it.
