Now available the update to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop and to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for Nexus devices. If you have a Nexus 5 upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop, we’re sure you’ll be waiting a godsend arrival of a package of corrective data that Google has dubbed as Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. Anyway, the Mountain View company has released this update to the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 located in India, what makes us think of an immediate deployment globally. The corresponding data packet to Nexus 5 has a weight of 13.3 MB, while the Nexus 4 is somewhat heavier, reaching 16.7 MB. Both have landed these devices via FOTA (Firmware Over The Air), meaning cables will not be necessary and you can perform the update without them. But what about this update and why it is so important for users?
It is possible that in recent weeks you have been paying attention to all news revolving around Android 5.0 Lollipop and Nexus 5. Not surprisingly, after the update to this versión, many users (especially of this model) have complained of persistent failures, able to impair the normal operation of devices. Anyway, Google has not left another one to develop a special update to resolve these errors. So Android 5.0.1 Lollipop brings improvements in the performance section, various error corrections or spot bugs and a significant increase in overall stability. Delaying the update or not to implement it will be harmful to users Nexus 5, so it is recommended to carry it out asap.
This happens when updates to Android 5.0 Lollipop for Nexus devices were not so successful as expected. Most phones have already received the packet data corresponding to Lollipop, but not all models have welcomed assurances. Most devices that have been upgraded to this version are experiencing serious problems quite different: some users have encountered connectivity failures when accessing WiFi wireless networking, excessive battery drain and sudden reboots or failures in applications. Anyway, after starting the upgrade to this release and realize the mistakes, the Google company will launch new updates, Android 5.0.1 Lollipop and Android 5.0.2.
Unfortunately, those users who once bought a Nexus to benefit immediately from the latest updates were wrong, apparently. And for the owners of Nexus is there so much fragmentation between versions as we find among the entire ecosystem of Android phones. At this time, we can say that Android 5.0 Lollipop has come for most Nexus. In this package we include the first to receive: the Nexus 4, Nexus Nexus 5 and 10. For this trio the update was in November 2014, but the fact is that instead of bringing successes, arrived full of faults that are generating complaints and more complaints from users. Google wanted to address these shortcomings by upgrading to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, which is already available in India.
A few days ago we knew that Google has also released an update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for the Nexus 7. So far no data on this version to the other terminals. All we know is that these updates have not fully resolved the problems inherited from the base version, which could affect the arrival of a new update for corrective purposes. This data packet has not yet been filtered, or even if, when we suspect arrival may occur. All we know is that it could be dubbed Android 5.0.3 Lollipop.
For now, if you have any problems with your Nexus after upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop, know that it is possible to correct it manually by following these instructions.
