Android 5.0.1 Lollipop Update Available: Are they Covering Up For the Loss?

Updated on December 8, 2014

It’s just been a day when Android made an update available to public of Lollipop 5.0 version. Is android trying to cover-up their past mistakes offering an update in form of 5.0.1 Lollipop so early? Trying to cope with arduous situations, Android seems putting some generous and genuine efforts to make up for its lost fan base and credibility. Though, an effort was made, it doesn’t seem to be proven much effective.

However, this is what Android came up with as a new lope to lure dedicated consumers. The silent and secretive launch of this update, has been already pushed to Android Open Source Project (ASOP) as well as Nexus image page.

Nexus 7, 9 and 10 owners can try out Lollipop 5.0.1 right away, downloading the flash update. Apart from that, other device users can download the source code form of the update; however, it is advised to wait until the manufacture version releases with the device. Android users had lots of expectations with this update, but turned into a disappointment instead.

Why Android Lollipop 5.0.1 update is not expected to last long?

The 5.0.1 Lollipop update offered by Android, does nothing but fixes bugs, which is somewhat a good news for small number of users. Excluding this, this is no such upgrade that deserves to be mentioned (because, there aren’t any!!! Well done Android!).

Well a few that caught users’ attention are as follows:

  • Android 5.0.1 Lollipop comes with a feature that boosts the volume of allocated memory on Nexus 7 for video playback. (There were certain problems occurring while a user tries to play video; it showed error with “Touch to retry” function) After receiving the update, many users reported remarkable improvement in the feature.
  • Another issue that got fixed with the release of this update is “avoiding accidentally factory resetting;” this is when a device has been configured to be wiped out after a specific number of failure in accessing attempts. It is now, Lollipop does not count the attempts of access, and neither it accept patterns and password below four elements.

In Google Play Store failed to rate a mention on release of Lollipop 5.0.1 update. As per Google’s report, 49 percent of Android user run versions of Jellybean, while 34 percent run 4.4 KitKat, and the rest are still stuck on 2.3 Gingerbread. This is what weakens the market of Android Lollipop, as its getting tough competitions from its very own sister versions.
