Android L Set to Change the Way You Play with Your Phones; Meet the New Nexus

October 20, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you want an example of two extremes inside tech world at the moment, all you need to do is to read all the news about Google and Apple that had come out recently.

While September witnessed the grandeur entry of Apple’s new device, Google a couple of days ago released the new range of Nexus device in a rather quiet manner. And along with that came the much awaited launch of the latest of Android OS version, dubbed Lollipop.

Some of you may still be not aware of the Lollipop’s arrival. But yes, it has indeed landed.


Rumors on the new Nexus tablet were doing the rounds across headline space, but nothing came as sort of a confirmation until the launch was proclaimed. And now we have a whole new bunch of devices being released by Google in connection with the reveal of their new OS. The devices include the Nexus smartphone, Nexus tablet and the TV streaming gadget.

The talking point of the Nexus phones has always been the fresher face of Android, which barely seem to have been unaltered with the new device, Nexus 6.

The previous Nexus smartphone certainly proved to be the beast at its time of release, but Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 tablets pack in a bit more; the much awaited 64 bit processing that let these devices leap a step ahead hides under their hoods.

When it comes to the world of Android, the 64 bit platform surely opens up a fresh course. Not much has been known on what makes the hardware stand part, though.
Android 5.0 or Android L, as you can call it, is the smoothest variant of the OS rolling out from the house of Google. That, in fact, is thanks to its new interface dubbed Material Design and ART, the refurbished runtime engine.


Android L has the advantage of giving ultimate powers to users, right from the lock screen. Yet again, we need to say Apple had shown us that before.

You have notifications now finding its place on lockscreen. Also thrown in are on-screen notifications. L does stand for Lollipop, but you may also consider it Light. We say this because it comes light without any compromise in features.

Android L runs smoothly even if it is part of a device with 512 MB RAM. You have better battery efficiency as it sports the new power-saving mode that can add an extra 90 minutes of juice to your smartphone.

Also for the first time, you will be able to handle multiple accounts on your single Android device. And as mentioned before, it’s lighter indeed. Swapping through your accounts simultaneously won’t take any major toll on your phone’s performance.

Android L comes packed inside the newly introduced Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. IT’s expected to roll out for the rest of the Nexus devices by next week. Many more devices are also set to welcome Android L on board, and they include the likes of HTC One M8 and Moto X.
