How Different is Android Lollipop 5.1 to 5.0?


Google Android Lollipop, the most awaited software update for Android smartphones has been evolved into Lollipop 5.1 with some rectifications and bug fixes that are found to be existed in v5.0 after being released for some handsets so far.

 

In this article, we’re going to take a look at those holes in the new materialistic OS and how they are fixed in this 5.1 version.

 

#1 ‘No audio’ problem solved:

Some of the lollipop upgraders have complained that they couldn’t hear any sound from any of the internet, apps, games and music sources.

 

Remedies and suggestions were made on Google forums to solve this problem but failed to help the trouble facers at last.

 

#2 ‘No silent mode’ problem solved:

Android lollipop 5.1 comes with no silent mode option. It might be a bit hard to expect Google mixing up the silent mode option with sound options. The three None, Priority and All options does the job for you in fact. Dragging the point to None will silent the phone in lollipop 5.0.

The legacy silent mode option is restored in lollipop 5.1 to avoid confusion for the users.

 

#3 Memory management improved:

The management of the memory of the phone is improved than in 5.0. The applications will work better and won’t eat up the RAM just as the previous versions do.

 

#4 System stability is improved:

The responsiveness of the phone while using heavy applications or games has been improved. The touch-now-and-respond-later issues will not be seen at most, even while using multiple applications at background.

 

#5 Improved battery life:

With the better memory management, the life of the battery is improved. You can notice the extended battery life in lollipop 5.1 compared to previous versions.

 

How to update to Android Lollipop 5.1?

This newer version of this Android operating system is only available for Google Nexus devices now. It may take sometime for the update to hit the smartphones manufactured by leading companies like Sony, Samsung and HTC and that too might be available for some high-end devices only.

 

Till then, all those lollipop 5.0 upgraders have to wait or degrade to the older operating systems to avoid any further risks from using it.
