So what is in it for me?

Android 5.0 (Lollipop) is definitely all set to be a visual treat for users with fluid animations, but that’s not all. The notifications will appear as a stack of tiles, which can be scrolled through on your lock screen. It also offers Personalised Unlocking, which essentially makes your phone smarter by recognising familiar devices (like a wearable), networks, locations and voice to unlock your phone.

Besides, Google is looking at some improvement to optimise games and applications to enhance battery life. Android 5.0 is also designed to be seamless across mobile phones, tablets, television, watches and more.

When can I have on my cell phone?

Android 5.0 was released to developers with Nexus 5 or Nexus 7. Android 5.0 was released to consumers in October with Nexus 6 built by Motorola, Nexus 9 built by HTC, and Nexus Player built by Asus being the first set of devices to come with the new OS.

With the OS fast becoming the platform to compete, it is expected that mobile phone giants will be quick to roll out the Android 5.0. HTC was the fastest to announce its plans to update their flagship HTC One family worldwide, while Samsung, like most other mobile phone companies remained tight-lipped about its plans for Android 5.0.

That said, the Nexus line comprising of Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 9 will be the first set of devices to get Android 5.0 updates.


Power-packed with a full range of features for consumers and developers, the Android 5.0 sure promises to be another sweet treat.
