This is for the pure edition, carrier version still has to be approved by Sprint so give it a few extra weeks.

Yes they sure are. For the exception of Sprint all the other carriers have received the OS update.

 

Not sure why the delay and silence from them. Even the reps on Sprint moto X community are hush hush. When someone ask in regards to this there's nothing but total silence. The one person that constantly answers completely changes direction on the subject at hand.

 

Sprint is the last of the Mohicans!

Sprint has FINALLY released Android Lollipop 5.1 along with Stagefright plus other enhancements on 8 December 2015. I was up late at night downloading and installing due to the file size. Afterwards as always I did a hard reset to manufacture specifications to purge the systems and start fresh. It's been fantastic and way way long overdue.

 

  * Have at it and enjoy it

Correct, miss the ergonomic design but since I upgraded to the MXPE, it was a good phone.

Sweet!

 

The Moto X PE 2015 is a great successor to the OG Moto X.

    • Does your android allow you to connect to wifi and mobile ? By default my android cuts the mobile when I'm on wifi to save data so you need to make sure both can be on at the same time.
    • By the time you get your S20, it'll probably be preloaded with the update that defaults you to T-Mobile bands. Interestingly enough, the IP network part of the connection is still Sprint...but you get VoLTE across the board. With that said, you can install Samsung Band Selection and pick which combination of bands (LTE and NR, though n71 will only work if you also have B2/66 enabled as well, and n41 for the most part doesn't exist) you'll let your phone on. T-Mobile band priority still applies to whatever you let through, so if you accept B2/4/66 you'll get those (probably even 12/71) but if you lock your phone down to Sprint bands that's what you'll get. As an example, I've tended to select B41-only on my S20 if I'm in an area I know to have solid B41 (AKA where I live and nearby). That gets me significantly higher speeds than the default, which tends to sit on B66+n71. I got one roaming warning from this but latency and speeds are as if I was on the native network. Then if I head out I'll either turn everything on or select 25/26/41 as the radio in this phone is strong enough to sustain a Zoom video call where previously (Essential Phone) the only thing reliable was 1x. The system isn't perfect, and sometime the phone will fail to lock on a signal at all after enough band selection changes, but a reboot fixes that. I have the band selection app as one of my quick apps on the screen edge app selector, so swapping things around takes maybe 15 seconds and a few taps.
    • It works now. It can take up to 3 weeks to enable it though after changing over, but usually it's within a week. It used to be a fully manually process, with someone having to turn it on, but it seems more automated now. You will lose VoLTE if your internet cuts out. Used take a few days to get it back (again, maybe a manual process?). But when I tested this weekend I got it back within an hour. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • You can email the developers and ask for an enthusiast's license. Usually good for 6 months at a time.
    • No I really don't. Anyone with experience or info on my question above? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
