Almost every Android device owner in the planet looks forward to getting their smartphones sweetened by Lollipop, and some are lucky enough to receive the upgrade even before they ask. Android Central reported that Google and Motorola are pushing Android's sweetest OS to all eligible devices at present, and they could be sparing no time for rest. Accordingly, LG and Samsung will soon get the update.

Just recently, Google has made Android 5.0.1 Lollipop factory images available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and Nexus 10. Although not an OTA update, it's worth mentioning that the company, again, has initiated something Android fanatics have been looking forward to.

But updates are born with associated problems, and Lollipop 5.0.1 is no exception. We've listed some of the nastiest issues encountered by Android users who've just made the switch to the recent upgrade below.

Installation

According to Gotta Be Mobile, users reported that the update's installation stops somewhere in the middle of the download process, ultimately resulting to non-installation of the upgrade. The outlet also cited a related issue where the Android 5.0.1 update shows up, only to disappear shortly.

For the installation process to continue, the source suggested killing root, locking up the bootloader, returning to a stock version (such as moving back to Android 4.4.4 KitKat) and clearing the cache partition.

Battery

Nexus 5 users running the Android 5.0.1 build have taken their voices to Reddit, and all seem to share the problem of battery drain among their common handset. GBM claimed that Android updates aren't supposed to bring these issues -- instead, battery-vicious apps could be the culprit. Users can check which apps are draining precious energy through Settings > Battery.

Updating applications, rebooting and factory-resetting the device are other potential fixes cited by the outlet.

Cellular Data

GBM noted that Lollipop hasn't updated Access Point Name (APN) settings properly for some users. Manually updating them may save one's device from potential cellular data problems. Other remedies for cellular connectivity issues include switching data connection off, rebooting and setting on and off to Airplane mode.

Wi-Fi

Nobody wants a sluggish Wi-Fi connection. We've heard issues about it over and over again following updates, and GBM suggested rebooting the device and / or the router as first solution. Users may also want to select "Forget Network" after pressing the troubled connection. Password re-entry will be necessary after this.

Boot

Another common Android problem, GBM cited users who said they have waited for hours before the issue was resolved. For this, the source recommended simply waiting out than doing a factory reset.

If you haven't flashed Android 5.0.1 Lollipop for your Nexus device, we've provided the links here. However, note that the entire procedure may be very technical; backing up is always recommended. Latino Post will not be responsible for untoward incidents that may arise in the process.

Alternatively, you may opt to wait for an OTA update. Android phones don't receive updates right away and simultaneously.
