Meanwhile, Android 5.0 Lollipop OS is the biggest update in Google's mobile software. The update will arrive with a series of performance improvement. One of the biggest improvements in the OS is its new user interface Material Design. Other updates include new notifications bar and Quick Settings, lock screen notifications, multi-user support for phones, and improved security that comes with Smart Lock feature.
