Recently, a newer of Android was announced, Android Lollipop 5.0. With this users are wondering if their devices if and when they will receive this update.

Obviously the first devices to get the update will be the Nexus Devices. Both 2012 and 2013 Nexus 7 variants, Nexus 10, Nexus 5 and the Nexus 4.

Shortly after that, the Google Play devices will receive the update.

Other devices and when they will receive the update is below.

Samsung:

Samsung hasn't said much regarding the upcoming Android 5.0 update. However it is safe to say that the most recent Samsung devices are going to receive the update. (Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Alpha, and the Galaxy Note 3.) Other Samsung devices like the S4, are likely to receive the update but it will be pushed out later than the newer devices. Sadly the S3 is not expected to get the update.

LG:

The G3, G3 and possibly the G2 mini are expected to receive the update.

Motorola:

Both 1st and 2nd gen Moto X's will receive the update. Also the the Moto G, the Moto G 4Gand the Moto E

Other Motorola devices that will get Android Lollipop are the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini.

Sony:

Sony stated that it will be "bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to the entire Xperia Z Series."

It's even put out a full list of handsets which are in line for Android Lollipop. Here they are.

Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3v, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.

Other various devices getting Android 5.0 are...

HTC One M8 and M7

Oppo One plus One

My device wasn't on the list, but iOS 8.1 came out today and I've already installed it.  It sure is nice to have a phone that doesn't need approval from 10 different carriers to get installed!  This post exemplifies the fracturing of Android and the disposability of Android phones.  Google needs to adopt a push to update policy so the carriers can't dictate phone owner updates.

Yeah I saw that too about iOS 8.1. Keep in mind this is a huge update to android not just a small one. This will be like when iOS 8 came out. Its not just a little update. When iOS 7 came out plenty of users of the iphone 4 and ipod touch 4 were left wondering what to do. Android users know that if they want the newest updates they need to buy a device like the Nexus 4 for example. It was first made in 2012 but it wll still be receiving android 5.0!

 

Plus you make a good point about needed to go through carriers to get updates, but many carriers are good about pushing out updates as soon as possible.

 

There are only a few big name devices like the s3 that wont be receiving this update. Other than that, the majority of android users out there will be receiving this new update.

 

One final point keep in mind how easy it is for apple to make an update. It has one ecosystem for all of their devices. With android there is touchwiz and LG's GUI so they have to modify the updates to suit their devices.

Android Lollipop is a major update, there are so many new and useful features. They added a new and easier to restore apps for an old device. MATERIAL DESIGN, PROJECT VOLTA, ,totally revamp notification and quick settings. This is no where close to a small update. This is a huge step for android. Maybe apple with get this good 4 years from now!!

Dictate is a strong word coming from someone with an iphone. Apple is the biggest dictator out there. Remember you can only do what they allow you to do with the iphone. Garbage.
