After the successful preview of Google’s Material Design in 7th Annual I/O Google Developer Conference, Google is ready with yet another exciting update in Android versions. The latest version of one of the most popular mobile operating system is numbered 5.0 and named as “Android Lollipop.” Yes, Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is the much awaiting latest release of largest mobile OS.
Nearly after almost one year of releasing Android 4.4 KitKat, now Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is most exciting and ambitious release of Android family. A better visual experience with brand new design, enhancement in the user interface with notifications, growth in your multitasking capabilities, better privacy control with ease of device sharing and a handful of many useful features – all that we can say about the latest member of Android family – Google Android 5.0 Lollipop.
8 Reasons Why Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is Best Ever Android Release
Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is all set to make a debut on three new Nexus devices too named – Nexus 6 Smartphone, Nexus 9 Tablet and Nexus Player Streaming Media Device. So let’s see why Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is best Android release.
1. Material Design with Familiar Visual Elements
The most innovative initiative of Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is its “Material Design.” Material design is a new consistent design approach across devices. Material design is meant for a consistent, intuitive experiences across all devices with a bold, colorful and responsive design.
Google Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with much more white spaces around text that keep realistic lighting and shadow with transparent touches. The typography and edge-to-edge imagery help you focus your attention on many devices whether it’s smartphone, tablets or smart watches, etc. Thus making it easier to navigate your device with familiar visual elements across all devices.
2. Enhanced Notification with Ease in Response
Now you have the freedom to get interrupted only whenever you wish with Google Android 5.0 Lollipop as its Enhanced Notification feature allow you to choose your priority for notifications. Now you can select the list of particular people from whom you would like to get notifications and also when to get notified.
You can turn on priority mode using your device’s volume button and also schedule a time to get all your notifications get through. This comes very handily for professionals especially when you are in a meeting or simply if you wouldn’t like to get distracted.
Also, you can quickly view and respond to notifications directly from your lock screen. But this doesn’t mean that you would be exposing your sensitive content that you want to hide.
3. Increased Battery Backup with Battery Saving Mode
If you ask me what should be the key feature I would be looking for in a proper gadget; my first response would be – “Its Battery Backup.” Because it is very annoying for almost everyone to plug their devices in power outlets. But with Google Android 5.0 Lollipop you don’t need to worry for those low battery notifications.
Google Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with a new battery saving feature that extends your devices battery life by as much as 90 minutes. The new battery saving feature clocks down the CPU thus turning off the background data for the limited time. However, it doesn’t harm your user interface as your background data quickly gets up when you unlock your device.
Isn’t it a handy feature that gives you the freedom to go fearlessly especially when you are moving out away from power outlets ?
4. Device Sharing with Multiple User
Long back Android Jelly Bean had introduced the feature of creating multiple profiles and data sharing in tablets. Now Google Android 5.0 Lollipop is just enhanced mode of that multiple user device and data sharing feature.
Now you can create multiple user profiles to your android devices for example – one for yourself, another for yourself for your friends, family, co-workers, and guests, etc. This makes you able to limit and allow access to your data over multiple devices. So now “Lend Your Device but Not the Data.”
5. Superfast Performance with Better Runtime
Google Android 5.0 Lollipop makes your computing experiences smoother with its super fast and powerful performance. The new Lollipop comes with an entirely new ART [Android Run Time] that improves performance and responsiveness of your device up to 4X than other versions of Android OS.
Android 5.0 Lollipop UI offers smoother functioning for complex and visually rich applications. Now Android users will get desktop class CPUs performance with 64-bit SoCs ARM, x86, and MIPS based cores. So if you are one who likes to enjoy the superfast performance, Android 5.0 Lollipop is for you.
6. Privacy Control
Though a large part of this feature is already discussed above in #4, the new enhanced privacy control feature is what I would like to recite again and again. Now you can take control of your privacy with an ease that you might have never seen before.
You can limit and set that which apps, files, data or other parts of your device, should be accessible to which person. So just restrict access to guest users and protect your stuff quickly. Also, if ever you are away from your device just find your friend who has a Lollipop device and logs in with your account in his device and gets access to your contacts, messages, apps and many more data.
Isn’t it an exciting way to keep your personal information private?
7. Everyone in Party Spirit
A few months back, Google launched Android One in India which is coming to other countries soon. Android One is an effort to make smartphones available for billions of people who have yet to get online, with the spirit of “Getting Everyone in On Party.” And the spirit continues with Google Android 5.0 Lollipop.
According to Google’s official blog,
“We’re excited about Lollipop, our newest software release, which is designed to meet the diverse needs of the billion-plus people who already use Android today”.
8. Multi-Tasking Accessibility
Can you recall your multitasking experience with Android Google Chrome Browser? Yes, you might have surely experienced those opened tabs as a stack of cards in Android Google Chrome. Now, it’s time to bring back that experience in your Android devices as the new Lollipop offers you to scroll through those stack of cards and choose apps running in the background.
This makes your multitasking smoother as you can perform multiple tasks at once and easily switch between different apps within a fraction of seconds.

If you recall your experience with TechReviewPro, we always provide you the pro review. And here is it –
“Now you can talk to your device and device will reply back to you.”
Yes, now talk to your Android device by saying “OK Google.” For example, if you want to ask your mom’s phone number – just say “OK Google, What’s my mom’s number?” and your device will quickly answer back to you. Similarly, ask weather updates, get directions, send texts and much more with Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop.

I am pretty much impressed with the features of Lollipop. Waiting for the update on my Xperia Z2.
Thankx for sharing.
Yea surely !
Chandan you are definitely going to enjoy this new update. But I think you should check it once again because many of Xperia smartphones have got the update already as I have seen the update in my friend’s smartphone (Xperia).
Thanks for dropping by. 🙂
Actually the new notification sucks. You can’t see what notifications you have unless you unlock your phone. No one wants just ANYONE to pick up your phone and read them. So everyone will put them not to show up on the lock screen. I liked the little notification in the upper left hand corner [b]on the lock screen [/b]. Easy, peasy. Plus if you put it on “Priority” mode and silent the phone, you can’t get emergency calls from aging parents or sick kids. Some companies won’t let you have the phone ring, especially when you’re not management and you had to buy your own phone. Or you work in a place that doesn’t allow it to ring and you don’t have pockets or a side holster.
