The future Android 5.0 Lollipop has been announced about a month ago. The developers at Android has published a list of devices nominated for the this Android L update. Among those devices you can see most of the Google’s very own Nexus devices including the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 , Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10 tablet. The date announced earlier for the OTA update was the 3rd of November but the Nexus device owners are still waiting for the update.

There are some reports that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update showed some bugs which has to be get fixed before the update roll out for the Nexus devices. The issue reported was the drainage of battery while the WiFi is ON and this was really critical as some experimental devices shown a decrease of 60-70% of the battery with in 2-3 hours of internet usage on WiFi.

In some cases there are reports that the devices have experienced fully charged to 0% battery in 4-5 hours of usage. This entry is actually a catch-all of sorts that is supposed to account for the difference between observed and computed battery drain.


There are some reports that the issue has been fixed but the Android 5.0 Lollipop update will be released on 12th of November and this time it seems to be the final date for this update. So if you are using any Nexus device mentioned above then get ready for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update rolling out on 12th November 2014.
