Android 5.0 Lollipop: Five 'Less Advertised' New Features

Oct 21, 2014 - 10:34 AM - by dgstorm

A great deal of energy has been focused in discussing some of the new features of Google's new mobile OS, Android 5.0 Lollipop. Most of the media and PR attention has focused on the "Material Design" UI, improved Gmail and improved apps & app support. It turns out there are some other pretty handy new things about Android 5.0 that are "less advertised," yet still deserve more than a courtesy eye-brow nod.

Here are five of the most notable features that you might not know are coming in Lollipop:

  • Kill Switch - this is something that has received some media attention outside of Android 5.0 specifically. We knew that Google was planning to bring this to Android, but Lollipop is the feature's grand entrance. Kill Switch will basically allow users can remotely disable and/or wipe the information on their Android 5.0 device. They can also require a password whenever someone tries to reset the device.
  • Lollipop can run on almost any Android device - this is uncommon knowledge, but it turns out that the latest version of Android is designed with a minimalist digital footprint in mind. Google is striving to reduce the dreaded "fragmentation" curse, and Lollipop was designed to work on nearly any Android capable device as long as it has a minimum of 512MB of RAM or more. Whether the various OEMs will take advantage of this remains to be seen.
  • Priority Mode - This is a handy new organizational function built into Lollipop. With Android 5.0, you can now customize which notifications show up on your lock screen. Not only can you prioritize whether you want Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter, you can also even choose which contacts' calls come through. This functionality even includes a gaming/movie mode in which you can choose to include a smaller notification which will pop up at the top of the screen, instead of interrupting your entertainment.
  • User Profiles - This is the same feature that Google originally implemented only on their tablets. It basically allows you to create separate user profiles on your device, so if you let someone else use it, they won't have access to your personal stuff. This feature will now work on Android phones as well as tablets. It has been enhanced even further though.

Android 5.0 Lollipop Includes 'Ambient Display' Feature Inspired by the Moto X

Oct 21, 2014 - 9:37 AM - by dgstorm

One of the slickest new features included in Android 5.0 Lollipop isn't really new at all. In fact, it is obviously inspired by something that the Moto X could already do. The feature is called Ambient Display and it is basically just a fresh version of the sleep screen from the Moto X.


Basically, with the Moto X, the sleep screen will pulse when the device is asleep. This pulse displays the time, notifications for messages, emails, missed calls and more. Ambient Display mimics this concept and will be included in the Nexus 6. Reports indicate it will also show up in all versions of Android 5.0 once that starts pushing out OTA.

The pics above are two examples of the feature. Pretty slick!

How To Install Android 5.0 Lollipop Nexus 5 Nexus 7

Oct 21, 2014 - 3:20 AM - by Jeffrey

If you own a Nexus then chances are you are pretty familiar with flashing a stock image to your device. Last week Google released an all new 5.0 Lollipop Preview build. There are several changes, especially in the Material theme. Installing this is actually pretty simple. You will need to have an abd/fastboot environment setup on your PC or mac. Normally this means having the adb.exe and fastboot.exe files stored in a folder. If you don't already have that set up you can find some pretty simple instructions here.

Once you have the adb and fastboot environment setup you can head to the link below to grab the image file. This will be in the form of a TGZ. You will need to extract the file. then copy the 5 files within the folder and then paste those into your folder containing the adb and fastboot files. Once you have copied and pasted the files simply double click the "flash-all.bat" and the install script will begin. Your phone should be in bootloader mode (from power off, press and hold volumedown+power), and should be connected to the pc.
