Just like with the case of every other new software application, the Android 5.0 Lollipop was not short of errors and glitches.
Google was ready for this as if they were expecting it and as it seems, the company is ready to launch the answer to the errors found in the pilot version of the Android Lollipop operating system by releasing the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop.
The latest version of the Android Lollipop is expected to solve a number of issues found in the older version of the OS, which was launched just a few months ago.
The First Beneficiaries
According to insider reports, the latest version of the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop will first be featured on a number limited devices that include Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Moto G (2013), HTC One M7 and HTC One M8. The Android 5.0 Lollipop made its debut with Nexus 6 and 9 last October and just two months into its use, issues have been found with this OS. Luckily enough, this is the norm when it comes to new software.
Some issues found in the Android 5.0 Lollipop and have been addressed in the latest version of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, include:
Wi-Fi Related Connectivity Problems
People who tested the Android 5.0 Lollipop revealed that the OS had issues when they tried to connect to the internet. Some reported that they couldn’t access it by all means, notably, the users of Nexus 5 and Nexus 10. This is expected to change when the latest version of the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop is rolled out.
Issues Related to Battery Life
Battery life is very crucial to a device’s sustained functionality and with Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, it was noted that the battery life was reduced. This is a major issue that has been addressed in the latest version of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, where the battery life is expected to be longer.
Frequent Device Crashes and Reduced Performance
The introduction of the Android 5.0 Lollipop was aimed at improving the performance of the devices running on this OS. However, as it has turned out, this OS has drastically slowed down the devices and many of them are reportedly suffering from frequent crashes. This is expected to be effectively taken care of with the latest release.
Video Playback Issues
Users of the Nexus 7 who upgraded to the Lollipop 5.0 reported issues to do with YouTube videos, with an error popping out warning that the device could not find an appropriate Flash Player. This issue has been addressed in the latest Android 5.0.1 Lollipop and users will now enjoy flawless video streaming.
The Bottom Line
Google had already won the hearts of many when it introduced this amazing operating system. All it needs is to work around things and fix these issues immediately and in this way, this OS will reach newer heights when it comes to the Android market.
The Android 5.0.1 Lollipop has not yet been announced, however; it is expected to be very soon.
