Solutions for Common Problem of Updating Android 5.0 Lollipop
Under the influence of the massive publicity campaign for Android 5.0 Lollipop, I believe a lot of people can wait to try this brand new operating system on their Android smart phone or tablet. Even though all Android phones are based on the same OS, different phone makers have different strategies to process the update of Android 5.0 among their users. So it might be possible that the LG users’ problem will never accrue to Sony users.

For example, Moto X Pure Edition and second-g Moto G will get OTA first, after that, Nexus series will receive their own OTA.
