Although it was initially released to a lot of controversy, since then, Lollipop has made massive improvements and the new features, visual overhaul and software improvements will make the new update improve your smartphone's speed and it will consume less battery.

Even though Android Lollipop was released on Google devices on November 12, most other handsets still haven’t received the latest Android update.

Although it was initially released to a lot of controversy, since then, Lollipop has made massive improvements and the new features, visual overhaul and software improvements will make the new update improve your smartphone's speed and it will consume less battery. Most importantly, however, it is also finally coming to your device.

Samsung already gave the update to the Galaxy S5 in mid-January, but now they will roll out the update to the Galaxy S4 and Note 4. The Samsung Galaxy S3 and anything before are unlikely to get the upgrade.

Motorola will install the update on the Moto G, Moto G 4G, Moto X, and Moto E. In fact, Motorola has already behan to roll out the upgrade to second generation Moto X and Moto G devices in the US.

Additionally, initially HTC planned to “begin rolling out updates to the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) in regions worldwide within 90 days of receiving final software from Google”, which had the date set for Febuary 1, however, because of fixes on both their end and Google’s, they have since “committed to ensuring these updates result in an even better experience with your device”, and that the updates would be out as soon as possible. The HTC One Mini 2, HTC One Max, and HTC One Mini will get the update sometime between March and May.

Sony has already stated that it will be “bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to the entire Xperia Z Series”. The Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact will get the update in February.
