It is a massive 800MB update, so users are advised to use Wi-Fi connection to avoid charges imposed when using mobile data.

Along with the Android 5.1 update, HTC also released some phone-specific patch to address the reported camera software issue. The patch features a software update for automatic exposure adjustment allowing users to take quality photo in both bright and low-light conditions, according to Tech Times.

On the other hand, the LTE variant of the original Moto G will also receive the Android 5.1 Lollipop update. The unlocked version of the smartphone received the update on July 9. For users of Moto G LTE devices that are locked into a specific network, the update will be released depending on when their respective network will release the update.

Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have already rolled out the Android 5.1 Lollipop upgrade for the Moto X. Users who have yet to receive the over-the-air update should try to manually update their phone.

On the LG side, the company promised that the LG G2 will receive the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update very soon. This means that the LG G2, which currently runs on Android 5.0.2, will skip the Android 5.1 update and will directly receive the Android 5.1.1 update.

Meanwhile, the LG G Stylo and LG Leon currently offered by T-Mobile both received the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update on July 3.
