Got 5.1 Lollipop update in my At&t Moto X 1st Gen Xt-1058 yesterday in Pakistan. I would like to share my experience with you guys.
Overall nice improvements as mentioned on Motorola website. However, the device feels a little bit slow may be due to long animations and effects put into UI. After updating, it took too much time saying "Optimizing Apps X out of 173" may be because I had many apps installed.
On first bootup, I saw too much LAG during every operation even switching apps was hell. Then I did a factory reset and erased all SD data. That solved the problem completely. Now my phone works flawlessly smooth with no Lag or whatsoever.
I also noticed slightly better performance while scrolling in browser or in other apps. Moreover, the battery seems to have improved a little say by 30 minutes more backup.
The bad thing I noticed is that Active Notification is not working as before. The phone does not lit up upon hovering over it to show notifications like I was doing before. Now you have to pick it up to see notifications/clock etc. Hope they fix it soon. Bootup animation is also something which I don't like. It's weird. Huh because I have At&t version.
As compared to Kitkat 4.4.4, the UI is a bit slow but not laggy. Notification bar is awesome. Moto Voice(touchless control) is better.
Things that Motorola should seriously improve are:
- Active display - Notifications
- Camera App - UI and exposure/focus problems etc
Guys after upgrading to (Moto x 1ST GEN)lollipop 5.1 its barely switching to 3G network.This use to happen before but was customizing it with "Phone testing" app, now even they have blocked that application.Please give me some solution.
Also suggest me some nice earphones which is supported by Moto X 3.5 jack.
I am using Moto x in Dubai....awosme update almost 700 MB......very fine UI...love u moto giving update of 2013 flagship
After Lollipop update.Its running same for me. Rather the phone is working better as per the UI and feels of usage. And as per battery though its consuming more.Still its working fine for nearly 20h straight with stand by and mixed usage.I dont know why u people are complaining much for battery.My data connection remains on (3g) for all time. I think,it took a year time but it adhered to its promise.
Guys update it do a factory reset and cache partition rest all is fine.yes the battery is slow charging very slow so try getting better output charger for ur moto x and for battery drainage issue replace ur old battery it will surely help.better charger and new battery surely should help. Lollipop on moto x first gen it seems is better than on second gen moto x

Hi please calabirate your battery once you install Lollipop and you would have the same battery standby as in Kitkat.

My first impresions after upgradeing my Moto X (XT1052) to Lollipop.
I'm a bit dissapointed that the hover over the screen to activate the display doesn't work anymore.
I'm still testing the phone but from what i can observe the battery backup is worse, it lasts less than on KitKat (for now).
And i have a question for those who updatet ther phones to lollipop. Near the newtorg signal icon I have an exclamation mark. What does that mean ?
