Android Lollipop Offers Major Enhancements

Material Design

A bold, colorful, and responsive UI design for consistent, intuitive
experiences across all your devices

  • Responsive, natural motion, realistic lighting and shadows, and familiar
    visual elements make it easier to navigate your device
  • Vivid new colors, typography, and edge-to-edge imagery help to focus your
    attention

Notifications

New ways to control when and how you receive messages – only get interrupted
when you want to be

  • View and respond to messages directly from your lock screen. Includes the
    ability to hide sensitive content for these notifications
  • For fewer disruptions, turn on Priority mode via your device’s volume
    button so only certain people and notifications get through. Or schedule
    recurring downtime like 10pm to 8am when only Priority notifications can get
    through
  • With Lollipop, incoming phone calls won’t interrupt what you’re watching
    or playing. You can choose to answer the call or just keep doing what you’re
    doing
  • Control the notifications triggered by your apps; hide sensitive content
    and prioritize or turn off the app’s notifications entirely
  • More intelligent ranking of notifications based on who they’re from and
    the type of communication. See all your notifications in one place by tapping
    the top of the screen

Battery

Power for the long haul

  • A battery saver feature which extends device use by up to 90 mins
  • Estimated time left to fully charge is displayed when your device is
    plugged in

    now be found in battery settings
