Lollipop

And a new version comes just in time

Earlier in the week we asked about the Lollipop update that you might have received. Specifically, about how well things were working after you installed it.

A good many people had some serious issues with things like the data connection and video playback after installing. A good many people had no issues with things like the data connection and video playback after installing. It was one of those mysteries worthy of Angela Lansbury (ask your grandfather, he knows what's up) that Phil told me to check into. I love checking into those.

The first order of business was to take a sample and see what sort of scale we were talking about.

Poll results

If we only look at the answers from folks who took a Lollipop update, we see about one-third of us were experiencing issues of one sort or another. Personal communication with a few people told of a myriad of problems, but the most common was video playback on the 2013 Nexus 7. I think that was a bug that affected everyone, even if not everyone saw it in action.

The good news is that the people I spoke with — and thanks each and every one of you who helped and answered my questions and did factory resets in the name of fake-science — say that the Android 5.0.1 update (thanks for flashing that, too) has fixed their issues here. Folks with random Nexus 10 problems seem to be loving 5.0.1, too. Hopefully, some magic sauce was mixed into 5.0.1 and things get better for everyone.

If you had issues with the Lollipop update, did 5.0.1 fix any of them? Shout out and help your fellow Android fans.
