New Delhi: There are lots of smartphones available in the market which comes with the much coveted Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system. The new OS by Google offers a great user experience with material design and more refined user interface.
In terms of aesthetics, the highlight of the new OS is the fresh design, called Material. It changes the setup menu, app drawer and notification shade to animations and icons. It even changes the onscreen back, home and recent app buttons, thus making Lollipop feel more cohesive.
Lollipop is full of animations, offering expanding and condensing effects when you open and exit the app drawer, a zooming effect when you swipe to unlock the screen and a sliding animation. You'll also find playful illustrations throughout the Google apps, adding some playfulness that iOS lacks.
Multitasking has become a lot more easier in Lollipop. Doing away with "recent apps," a new menu called Overview shows the apps that are running in the background as a stack of cards, instead of the previous list view.
Other significant makeovers in Lollipop are Gmail and Calendar. The new OS gives Gmail a simplified inbox and updated side menu. Calendar gets full-color seasonal themed backgrounds for each month.
By using brightly coloured floating buttons, the new OS makes it easier to see how you create a new contact, appointment or email. Also, the three buttons at the bottom of the screen have been simplified into a triangle, a circle and a square.
Lollipop also adds a new Battery Saver mode, which clocks down the CPU, limits vibrations, reduces the ambient light and turns off background data when your device needs a little extra juice.
In March 2015, Google came out with an update, version 5.1, to the Lollipop, bringing many behind-the-scenes changes. The most noticeable is the support dual-SIM phones, letting you switch between SIM cards and networks within the OS. Google also improved the security features in the new update by bringing a feature called Device Protection. It means if you your phone or tablet gets stolen or lost, the device will stay locked even if someone resets it. You'll need to log in with your Google account on that device to unlock it.
All these features are sure to get you excited as you would definitely want to test the new flavor of Android. Here in this list we are offering some latest smartphones which offer Lollipo OS:
