Android 5.0 was released in November. While it was met with positive reviews, there were quite a few bugs present with this update. Google rolled out two small updates but they too didnt solve the problem completely. Now the next update is supposed to be Android 5.1 which will be bigger update and a Nexus 5 running on this version has been spotted on the Geekbench tests.
Android 5.1 is going to solve a lot of problems – improved battery life, better Random Access Memory (RAM) management, and loads of bug-fixes as well as performance optimisations over the previous iteration.
Google are going to add the “Silent Mode” feature again, with the priority notifications not going down well with the users. Google will also provide fixes to other problems – issues with “Okay Google” voice search, as well as notification problems.
There is still no official word on when this update will be rolled out but with Nexus 5 and Android One devices spotted on the Android 5.1, one might imagine the release date of Android 5.1 is near.
