Android M vs Android 5.1 Lollipop

Android M isn't going to bring major visual changes to Android but it will be bringing loads of changes and features that you need to know about.

Google outlined a number of Android M features on stage at Google I/O. If you tuned into the live stream (or if you were there) you probably caught some of them. Google didn't announce every Android M feature on stage though.

We've been enjoying the developer preview and looking for some of those smaller features not mentioned, and here's a comparison of what's new. This is a great place to see most of the changes thus far, as well as more information regarding what's coming next.

It's recommended that both developers and users get familiar with Android M before the actual release date, but if you don't own a Nexus device you'll have to wait for the actual software update in Q3 of this year. Google has a lot planned, and Google Now on Tap looks to be one of the best smartphone features in years.

    If there are the true specs for the Note 5, then it’s not worth the money to upgrade. I can’t see paying $650 plus to take a better selfie. Compared to the Note 4, the battery is smaller, sd removed. battery sealed, memory only a tad bit better. I can’t see the Note 5 moving much faster than the Note 4. Personally I think its more of a downgrade unless you want a glass phone that will be covered by a case.

    I really hope Samsung has more up it’s sleeve than the rumors and so-called leaks.
