Are You Ready For Android Lollipop?

Posted by: on Mar 4, 2015 | No Comments

Android Lollipop 5.0 is the biggest Android update so far, featuring loads of features and a pleasant new design that improves the user experience. The Android 5.0 Lollipop brings a considerable design change without straying far from the familiar Android experience.  Google has crafted a standout aesthetic for Lollipop that is both unique and modern. There are many blockbuster extras in this latest release of Google. Google has added unified support and search for third-party keyboards and mobile payments years ago, so the core features are all there, but they are better and improved than before. Here are some of the pros and cons of Android Lollipop 5.0.

• Notifications are much better
• Smart lock
• Enhancement in the performance and speed
• New device sharing features are available
• Beautiful redesign
• Lollipop support multiple user accounts

• Overview can get crowded because of many tabs
• There are a few UI elements that can be confusing for the user
• There is no split-screen multitasking
• In landscape mode, limited multi-pane is supported
• Some users will grieve over on the lack of lock screen widgets

The most refreshing change in Android Lollipop 5.0 is the fresh design aesthetic, known as Material. Because of this, every single thing has changed about how Android looks, from the icons, animations, notification shade setup menu to app drawer. Even the home and recent app buttons and onscreen back look different; as they are now in simple geometric shapes.

Animations are everywhere, with condensing and expanding effects when you exit and open the app drawer, the quick setting menu, sliding animation when the user swipe down from the top of the display for viewing notifications and zooming effects when you swipe for unlocking the screen.

Another wonderful addition to Lollipop 5.0 includes a new way of unlocking your device, known as Smart Lock. This feature uses a compatible Bluetooth device, such as an NFC tag and the Moto 360 to unlock your phone automatically.

Battery saving
Lollipop has added a new Battery Saver mode that clocks down the CPU turns off background data, reduces the ambient light when your device needs a little extra juice. You can program to turn it automatically or you can also turn it manually when your battery drops too low. According to Google, this Battery saving mode can add up to 90 minutes of additional battery.

Final Thoughts:

Android 5.1, an updated version of Lollipop, was announced in February 2015 as part of the Indonesian launch of Android One, and is preloaded on Android One devices sold in Indonesia and the Philippines based on a Wikipedia posting. From my perspective I think the Android Lollipop theme and design is a big improvement over pass version of the Android OS. I’m very happy Google is putting in the time and effort to make Android a serious competitor against other rival OS’s such as iOS and Windows Mobile OS. Like I always state, “New technology should be fun and exciting!”
