o don't think that using Jelly Bean is pathetic-this is simply understandable 'cos this is last android which allows to move software to sd card.People still using JB are simply smart not 12 years old idiots :)
My Nexus 7 (2012) had yesterday the update to 5.0.2....
and it looks like they did fix the problems of 5.0 and it works again like it should.
Thank you Google.
Still that pathetic Jelly bean is in the market, all down to those crappy white box Chinese phones they keep spreading like the herpes.

Either way, I think the slow adoption rate is because cyanogenmod got released only yesterday, and since a lot of people use it the share's gonna skyrocket now
Hey thank you android for giving people a real smartphone os which cost less than 100$.We don't care for updates.That is because we buy phones for latest version of android.Anyway even Jb devices can run most of apps except some games.That is android for you.
The latest versions of Android are normally flagship driven. However, flagship sales are down, as Apple continues its record breaking iPhone 6/6+ launch.
Android needs to find a better way of getting its latest updates through to mid-range phones, and even low end.
"Google has made its monthly... ...the "Platform Versions" chart, *available.
Lollipop seems to be a bit of a failure. Most devices have been facing some of disfunctionalities after receiving this update. I'm facing much troubles with my Nexus 7(2013).

They are trying to regain control the software. Allows OEMs too much control of the OS will just make OS more buggy and slow down OS updates. Every Windows Phone 8 devices can get OS update easily (Preview for Developer app) and all will get Windows 10. They are all equivalent to Nexus devices on Android with stock UI. On new computers with Windows desktop, we remove all the bloatwares from the OEMs before we deploy them to the users.
I don't know when I heard 1st time about Android L why I remembered Android 3.0, a lot of advertisement done for Android L and not mentioned about security only material design, performance and battery. I'm sure battery and performance will increased but not by 30% as Google announced I feel it is cheating. Google only running to make any advertisement to beat Apple without coordinating with smartphone makers and test the new system as no support from Google engineers in order to make a clear mapping for the new system, until now we see some developers still using Jelly Bean and Kitkat for their smartphone which already tested by poor customers like us and rectified most bugs. I started to hate Google as they act is destroying our lovely android OS.
most of android still doesn't support kitkat.
Too many company creating phone for android.
Compare to Apple which only on their own.
Still, it still good to have Android which provide a lot of freedom either for user and developer.
AnonD-120334, 08 Jan 2015Maybe Gingerbread.. but who cares? Android is a crap! Its almost 3 months since Android Lollip... moreThere are plenty phone manufacture that using android and also used different hardware specification..its hard to fully optimized for curtain update version..
AnonD-120334, 08 Jan 2015Maybe Gingerbread.. but who cares? Android is a crap! Its almost 3 months since Android Lollip... moreWhile Apple achieves this by controlling their hardware - Android does achieve this with developer support for the seemingly infinite amount of devices running Android these days.
Whenever there is an update for android, it just destroys the app compatibility. Its takes quiet a bit of time to fix that. But some old apps(mostly games) are not fixed at all. And now every android update takes away some functionality compared to previous versions.
I think it good to wait and watch how things are going before updating.
Lillipop has few a many issues, i'm facing on my Nexus5. I feel there is a scope of improvement and With Windows taking a increase in volume, there are less chances of Lillipop to surge as a winner in coming few months.
Maybe Gingerbread.. but who cares? Android is a crap! Its almost 3 months since Android Lollipop, still its available for less than 0.5% of the devices. Comparatively iOS 8.1 runs on over 80% of iDevices. This is something Android can never achieve!
AnonD-325283, 08 Jan 2015may be the SD card restrictions in KitKat are preventing people from adapting KitKat...Nope.. Most are holding back because they are not getting an update.
That's not a big deal. The Cariers like AT&T that install additional crapware, slow the update cycle alot. Google rolls updates very fast to Nexus devices. At&t is evil ...
AnonD-207267, 08 Jan 2015Not that there is an official 4.4 version for my device, even if it did come out for my phone,... moreGood choice, I think.
I had 2 identical smaller tablets on 4 2 2, upgraded one of them to kitkat scarcely any difference, and lost flash side load too.Im keeping my note 2014 on 4.3 tho, in spite of having a 10.1 pro working great on kitkat,
might risk it if the note gets lolop.
O, one good thing about the upgrade I did to the smaller tablet was, it gave me total screencast to the chromecast, and would like that option on my note.
