Android Lollipop coming to Lenovo phones next quarter

Phone manufacturers are rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop for their smartphones. Samsung seems to be the busiest one releasing upgrade for the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Noted Edge, Galaxy S4 in Russia, Galaxy S4 (Android 5.0.1), and the Galaxy S4 LTE-A. All these arrived after the South Korean giant announced back in December that Android Lollipop would be coming to Samsung users the following month. There's also Lenovo-owned Motorola releasing sweet updates to the Moto Maxx and Moto E and the 2nd-gen Moto E.

Android 5.0 finally reaches the Android Distribution chart

It was a long time coming, but finally it's here. Google's sweet Lollipop has finally reached enough numbers to qualify for inclusion in the Android Distribution chart as of February 2. This marks the version's stronger push in the market. The question now is how fast will the adoption be, given Android 5.0 is already experiencing a few technical difficulties in rolling out to devices, even among Google's own Nexus ranks.

Lollipop images out for Nexus 7, both 3G and LTE versions [UPDATE]

For those of you who are still using your venerable Nexus 7 – be it the 2012 3G only version or the more recent 2013 LTE version – this is probably good news for you.

Android 5.0.2 images arrive for 2013 Nexus 7 (WiFi), Nexus 10

Following last month's factory image release, Google is now bringing Android 5.0.2 to the rest of its older Nexus tablets. The maintenance update, which first appeared for the 2012 Nexus 7, is now available for the 2013 model, only for its WiFi variant, and the Nexus 10. And as before, there is no official changelog or announcement on what has been fixed in this silent Android release. Amusingly, the more recent Nexus 9 seems to have been left out, at least for now.

OPPO R5 goes Hulk, smashes everything

The Oppo R5 used to be the thinnest Android smartphone in the world but sadly, the super thin phone has been replaced by the new Vivo X5Max recently. The crown may have been snatched from Oppo R5 by a mere 0.1 mm difference but the super thin smartphone still continues to impress us with its specs and a newly posted video on YouTube will tell you why: it can smash fruits, nuts, and be run over by a vehicle.

Android 5.0 image for 2012 Nexus 7 leaked

The new Nexus devices are out, well except for the Nexus 6, and with them come Android Lollipop. Naturally, we expect that Google's previous Nexus devices will be the ones to get the update before anyone else. What we did not expect, however, is that the older 2012 model of the Nexus 7 would actually be the first to get it. Well, at least unofficially via this leaked flashable image that can be downloaded from Google's servers.

Chainfire details root issues in Android 5.0, gives quick fix

With the latest Android 5.0 now out of the bag, many are quite eager to have a taste on their device. One subset of the Android community that might not be excited to have a taste of Lollipop are power users who live and thrive with rooted smartphones and tablets. The reason is that in the attempt to make the Android platform more secure, Android developers may have, unintentionally or not, left root devs and users out in the cold, an issue that SuperSU developer Chainfire tries to explain in more detail.

Nexus 6 gets a massive set of mockups and leaked photos

The rumor mill is spinning like crazy as we near the expected reveal date for Google's next Nexus device. But while we haven't really seen an actual Nexus 6 just yet, aside from two photos allegedly of the smartphone being used in the wild, some rather passionate fan has taken it up on himself to create a wooden model of the device to give others a more solid, pardon the pun, idea of what it might look like.
