Recently, Google started rolling out a Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update to replace the device’s Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update. Android 5.1 Lollipop is a substantial upgrade for Nexus Smartphone and tablets and today, we want to take a look at five things you need to know about Google’s Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update.


Google push out an Android 5.0 Lollipop update that brought new features, enhancements, and fixes to Nexus Smartphone and tablet users. Unfortunately, Android 5.0 Lollipop was also riddled with problems and Nexus users started to complain almost immediately after the start of the initial Lollipop roll out.


Slowly but surely, Google’s started to fix some of these Lollipop problems. First, the company rolled out an Android 5.0.1 update to select Nexus devices. Then, it rolled out an Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for some Nexus devices. Google’s former flagship, the Nexus 5, remained on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop until last week when Google rolled out a massive bug fix update for Nexus devices.

5 things about Android 5.1


 1. Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Update Rolling Out Slow

The Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update started rolling out last week and from what we can tell, it’s moving out extremely slowly to Google’s Nexus 5 variants all over the world. We still haven’t seen the OTA roll out for one of our Nexus 5 variants and we've spoken to several other Nexus 5 users who are still trapped on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. Google’s slow roll out doesn't come as too much of a surprise.






  2. You Can Get the Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Update Right Now

If you want to, you can install the Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update right now. The proper file has been found lurking on Google’s servers which mean that those who are familiar with the side loading process can now upgrade the Nexus 5 ahead of the OTA. If you are familiar with the process, the Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update file can be found here.


 Again, only seasoned Nexus users should attempt to do this. Side loading has been known to cause issues on the Nexus 5 and other Nexus smartphones and tablets if the process isn't done correctly.

 3. Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Update Features

The Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update comes with a number of fixes for Lollipop problems. It also comes with a number of enhancements for Android features. Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop features include new animations, the new Bluetooth and WI-Fi quick settings in the pull-down menu, separate media and volume controls, and more.





 4. Quick Impressions

Nexus 5 users that have already downloaded the Android 5.1 Lollipop update and OTA are posting their impressions to the Nexus Help Forum. The thread is rather lengthy but it’s a great place to start if you’re not familiar with the Android 5.1 update for Nexus 5 or Google’s other Nexus smart phones and tablets. Many of the comments are negative but there are some users reporting a solid experience after the jump. We've gotten the Nexus 5 Android 5.1 Lollipop update on a few of our models as well and thus far, the experience has actually been very solid.


 5. Android 5.1 Problems

Android 5.1 Lollipop comes with fixes for Android Lollipop problems but it appears that Android 5.1 is causing some problems of its own. Nexus 5 users are complaining about several different Android 5.1 Lollipop problems including battery drain, cellular connectivity issues, Bluetooth problems, random reboots, and more. It’s worth noting that an Android 5.1 Lollipop memory leak problem, the one that’s causing some of these crashes, has been fixed by Google.
