Verizon Wireless has started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the exclusive Moto Droid Turbo 2 as at the time of this writing.
With the new software update, those using the Moto Droid Turbo 2 can now enjoy the new Android 7.0 Nougat OS on this device, bumping the software version to 25.11.10. However, the carrier did not manage to include the latest February Android security patch, rather, you only get to deal with December’s version, which is a little weird from their end.
Quite a number of OEMs, including the usually pedestrian Samsung, have already rolled out the latest Android security patch for the month of February not just to their flagships, but also their entry-level devices as well. But looking at the mere age of the Moto Droid Turbo 2 alone will tell you that this slow rate of receiving software updates cannot be avoided.
Nonetheless, the fact that the Moto Droid Turbo 2 was launched in 2015 means that it has come of age, with this update probably being the last it will ever see, unless Motorola has plans to keep going with the other Nougat iterations up until version 7.1.2, which is still in beta. The phone made its debut with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop running the show, but later on, it was upgraded to Marshmallow and now Nougat.
The Droid Turbo 2, like any other Motorola phone, came in with an almost stock Android OS – something that the new Nougat treat does well to keep. But being a Verizon-exclusive, you’ll still find a few features based on the carrier’s offerings, but this doesn’t take away the near-stock experience of the phone.
Like any other major OTA update, this one is huge and as such, be sure to connect your Moto Droid Turbo 2 to the internet via a Wi-Fi hotspot. Also ensure that the battery is at least 50% full before proceeding with downloading and installing the new Android 7.0 Nougat OTA on your phone.
