Productivity Review: Android 6.0 Marshmallow

There are, however, some unwritten improvements when it comes to running speed and smoothness. Android has been steadily improved over the years, and 6.0 adds a little polish to an already good experience on 5.x Lollipop.

Lollipop on the Nexus 10: A Real Improvement

The ’10 has been improved right across the board. I’m aware that some users have experienced issues updating their device but I have to put this down to either faulty hardware or an incompatible application, because my experience has been better than I dared hope.

The Lollipop Rush

Huawei recently announced that their Mate 2 smartphone will get Android Lollipop “in the first half of 2015,” but we’ve made massive strides in the last twelve months. Long may it continue!

Android 5.0 Lollipop from a Productivity Perspective

This announcement has surprised a few industry commentators, because the oldest device in the list – the 2012 Nexus 7 – has a relatively elderly processor with 1 GB of RAM, compared with the more modern chipsets with at least twice the RAM. Google are extending Android Lollipop back to older hardware in order to work on keeping a consistent user interface for many people and let’s not forget that the 2012 Nexus 7 was a very popular tablet. It’s not in Google’s interests to release Android Lollipop if it’s sluggish so I am optimistic that the performance improvements in the operating system will improve running performance.
