DROID Ultra/Maxx/Mini won’t get Lollipop, Motorola offering discounts on newer DROIDs

Motorola DROIDs

We have some bad news for the owners of the Motorola DROID Ultra, Maxx, and Mini: The three devices will not be getting updates to Lollipop. If the end of support came today, that would be fine, but Lollipop is quite old and the devices never received it.

To ease the pain, Motorola is offering owners of the DROIDs discounts on a newer Motorola device. No better way to get over the pain of a poorly supported Verizon exclusive device than to buy another one, right? Current owners of the devices may purchase a DROID Turbo 2 for $100 off (down to $524) or a DROID Maxx 2 for $50 off (down to $334). Head to this site if you want to take Motorola up on that offer.

I can’t say that buying another DROID device is a great idea if you value support for updates. Motorola seems to be doing pretty well with its flagships, but the lower-end phones have suffered after the Lenovo buyout. Owners of the DROID Ultra/Maxx/Mini, will you be purchasing another Motorola phone?
