Google has started rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update over-the-air for it’s old Nexus 5 flagship. In the course of providing the latest updates first to the Nexus devices, the Nexus 5 becomes one of the first among the whole Nexus and other Android devices as well to get the update.

Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA

The latest Android’s minor version update for the Nexus 5 has about 220 MB file size, and is rolling out in phases all over the word. Though the update with the build number LMY47D for the Google Nexus 5 does not come with major changes, it reportedly brings improvement in performance and stability section. Other changes include longer battery life and improvements to the 64-bit ART runtime compiler, which should allow apps to open faster. RAM management will be better and issues with “Okay Google” are fixed. System stability will show improvement. HD Voice has been activated to improve the voice call quality. There’s no evidence of whether the fix for the memory leak, as reported earlier, has been patched with this update.

Google has only a few days back released the factory images of the update for the device, and now if you own a Nexus 5, you may already have got the notification for the update. If you have not been notified by your device yet, you can check it manually on Menu >>Settings >> About phone >> System Updates. Since the file size is quite high, you may want to connect to a WiFi network, before downloading the update. After you download the update, you should press on ‘Install update’, and your phone will restart after having it installed. Make sure that you have enough battery level too, before installing the update file.
