Android 5.1

 

You may remember the memory leak bug that was reported on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop when it was released. Unfortunately, the same Bug still exists in the Google's latest version Android 5.1 Lollipop and it affects the system performance in the long-run. Google promised a final fix for this issue.

 

Issue No. 159738, "Memory leak still present on Android 5.1" was reported at the AOSP issue tracker. Last Friday, Google closed the bug and said that it has internally fixed the issue and plans to include it in the upcoming release version, Which most likely would be Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

The complaints are beginning to read the same. Apps, especially Google+, restart on their own. Some active apps disappear in the middle of using them, and free RAM drops in hours to about 750MB-800MB from 1.1GB-1.3GB. Most of the people who sent in a complaint appear to be using the Nexus 5, although other Nexus devices have been cited. Some complaints said that opening apps would increase the amount of RAM in use, but closing apps would not reduce that figure.

 

Android version 5.1.1 shouldn't take long until we see it rolling-out to Nexus devices and tablets as an OTA package or a Factory Image.

We already reported before about the Memory Leak bug in the Android 5.1 Lollipop and that Google promised to fix once and for all in the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Today, Android SDK Manager added Android 5.1.1 build, which confirms that Google is getting ready to release the update.

 

Android Developers and users are eagerly awaited the 5.1.1 release to fix this bug. Google has acknowledged that the leak existed, but also posted that the necessary repairs had been made. Google did not have everything ready to go for Android 5.1, which is why the Android 5.1.1 update is so important to many Android users. We might also see the addition of a VPN (Virtual Private Network) which would allow users to tap into a Wi-Fi network to communicate over a Google owned VPN.

It's only a matter of days until we see some Nexus Factory images for the 5.1.1 build available for download. Over-the-air updates to 5.1.1 will also come as early as next month. Stay tuned!

Samsung considered this specifications as "limited" and won't be able to provide a smooth Lollipop experience for the users of the S4 mini. However, Samsung France has already confirmed that Android 5.0 Lollipop update is coming to Galaxy S5 mini variant during the Q2,2015 period (April - May - June). Stay tuned for more Info!
