    It looks like Motorola has started a new soak test for the Verizon Droid Turbo 2. Several folks have reported receiving emails from Motorola detailing an “early preview of a new software release," for the Droid Turbo 2. It could simply be a maintenance/security update of some kind, but it's just as likely to be Android 6.0/Marshmallow.

    Folks who are on the Motorola Feedback Network and own the Droid Turbo 2 should be on the lookout for a new update. Sound off and let us know what you think of it (after the required NDA period of course).

    The Turbo has been on the Moto Software Update page for a few months, stating that it will receive the 6.X M update. That's about as official as it gets; they never release dates though.

    You didn't really think it WOULDN'T, did you? I'm not the type that really cares about updates but even I might be annoyed if a current flagship DIDN'T get an update...

    VZW sent me a postcard offering an early upgrade (10 mounts months early) to a DT2. I thought about it briefly to replace my Note 4... But the more I think about it, I don't think it'll be much of an upgrade

    I tried using Migrate on a sale I had the other day, and it didn't work either. Very disappointing Motorola!

    I thought migrate only worked over WiFi?
    Last time I used it, it took almost 5 hours.

    Migrate no longer works on the newer phones, Moto announced that a while back. I believe it is now on their list of Sunset Apps. If I open it on my Turbo 2 I get a popup that says "Sorry! Migrate does not support transfer to this device".

    But will work FROM. What sense does that make?
    Migrate took about 20 minutes om my Turbo 1. 5 hours?!?!? CRAZY!

    This is the one thing about Moto that ticked me off. Fine... 'sunset' those apps that are duplicitous of Marshmallow features. I get that. But could you AT LEAST WAIT UNTIL YOU INSTALL M ON YOUR PHONES!?!?!?! Ridiculous...

    Is there ONE Moto that has M yet?
