Android 5.1 Lollipop Arrives
This week on the Official Android Blog, Android Lollipop 5.1 was announced with some minor, but well deserved modifications to Lollipop 5.0.
A small list of some of the changes:
- Voice-Over-LTE (Currently supported on T-Mobile and Verizon)
- HD Voice (Currently supported on T-Mobile and Verizon)
- Device Protection (Remote locking similar to iCloud lock on iOS products)
- Better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Quick-toggles
- Support for Multi-SIM devices
Android 5.1 is currently being pushed to Nexus 5, 6, 7, 10. If you want this latest firmware the best place to download it is from HERE
A couple things i have noticed with android 5.1 are that it runs much smoother on my Nexus 6. Apps and browser windows load quicker which I really like. It also seems like the encryption on the Nexus 6 kind of slowed down the device but with Android 5.1 it is working normal again even with the encryption. There are also a lot of little animations that make it a much nicer experience.
