Complete Android 5.1 changelog and Release Date leaked

While some devices are still waiting for Android 5.0.1 new information on Android 5.1 Lollipop has already leaked, among it the Android 5.1 changelog and release date. According to information confirmed to AndroidPit  by two different sources who wish to stay anonymous, we can expect Android 5.1 Lollipop at the end of February 2015 on Nexus devices first.

The leaked Android 5.1 Changelog

But what is even more interesting is the changes coming in 5.1. Many users complained about memory leak issues, battery issues, app closing without warning and affecting the device’s speed like the Nexus 7. Most of these issues will be addressed in Android 5.1 who’s name will remain “Lollipop”. Here is a full list of changes:

  • Silent mode is back after being removed in 5.0
  • General improvements in system stability
  • Improved RAM management (This should fix the memory leak issues)
  • Fixes for sudden app closures (we have provided a guide on how to fix this now here)
  • Improved battery management
  • Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
  • Issues with wireless connections fixed
  • Problems with Okay Google function solved
  • Notifications problems solved
  • Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
  • Changes in the Material Design color palette (Not yet confirmed if this will come in 5.1 or later versions, but Google is working on it)

    I would suggest that google changes the interface of the android a bit more and more features like google now.
    And for nexus six users, introduce a accessibility function for ease of use with devices with 5+inch screens. And an axtra key beside the resent app key to toggle accessibility function or long press the recent app key as it doesn’t have any function when long pressed.
    Please pass this on to google.

    I think the changelog shows just what a massive screw-up the lollipop update is. My nexus 7 is unusable and nexus 4 a pain in the a#se. Have had to resurrect my 10″ netbook to replace an unusable nexus 7 and have bought a cheap phone to replace my crap nexus 4 google peed me off so much I couldn’t even be bothered to flash kit-kat onto them. Never ever EVER thought I would do it but I have just offered a Nokia windows phone after trying one for a couple of days. IT WORKS!

      I have no issue with lillipop on my Nexus 4. Almost all works better than on kk. And issue with battery drain I’ve solved by Nash kernel.

        I think the fact you have had to install another kernel to solve a google induced problem says it all! I would say battery life on a mobile phone is pretty crucial! Glad yours is better but there are a lot that are not.

          At the other side, I was not able to use stock KitKat. I had to switch to AOKP. But with lillipop, all issues I had on KitKat were adressed and I have no reason to test different roms. From this point of view is lillipop much better for my N4.

        Have you tried calling someone? Are you satisfied with the 3-5 seconds pause between you pressing the contact and it starting to dial? It’s a phone, mate. It should dial numbers and connect people in the first place. The update made me hate my device.
