A new era of Android began with the slogan “Be Together. Not the same “, which foreshadows the unification of all devices and we will soon be able to see on our gadgets a new Android OS L. In the meantime, we will hold the Android L review.
Completely updated interface and Material Design
The very first thing that the user will pay attention to when working with the Lollipop system is a new intuitive and high-speed interface and a new style of Material Design. The main idea of this design is its materiality, so the developers have tried to implement a realistic visual component with tangible edges, which are played by light and shadow.
Multitasking interface Android 5.0 will now be able to use several windows of one application in the form of basic and auxiliary cards, which greatly simplifies, rationalizes and brings to a new level the interaction with the device.
Juicy colors and advanced minimalistic animation make the new design pleasant to look at and convenient and fast for work.
The ART runtime
Android 5.0 Lollipop is developed in a new environment for the work of ART applications. With this innovation, the performance increases to four times, and in addition the platform is now compatible with 64-bit processors.
The convenient OK command Google will now work even on the lock screen (for now, for Nexus 6 and 9 models).
Energy-saving mode and operating time
Lollipop will present us a very conveniently organized energy-saving and battery management mode. Now we will be shown the time until the battery is finished charging and the approximate time until the device is completely discharged. And most importantly – will be available a new mode, which allows you to save 90 minutes of extra charge.
The newest notification system Priority mode

Protection against accidental reset to factory settings
Resetting to default settings now will not happen by accident, since the developers have finally introduced a function to confirm this action. In order to make a wipe, you will need to enter a login with the Google Account password. A convenient and necessary technology is called Factory Reset Protection.
