Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update being released for different models of Nexus series. Now, the Nexus 5 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is being pushed out for the users. Nexus 5 received Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the month of November and the users have been complaining a lot about the bugs in the firmware released. The users were complaining specially about the massive battery drain that came after install the Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware.
This Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is a minor update which should fix the bugs in the previous firmware. Although, there is no official changelog at the present, but you should expect any new features to be rolled out with this update. This update will probably contain performance, enhancement and bug fixes and it should bring stability to your device. The update has build number LRX22C and is about 14 Mb in size.
As with all other firmware releases, this firmware will also be rolled out in form of OTA (Over-The-Air). Since OTAs are released in gradual steps, some of the users will have to wait for some time for the update to arrive on their devices. Once the device is ready to receive the update, you will receive an Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update notification on your device. Just tap on the notification and then follow the instructions to install the update. In case, the update fails to arrive automatically, go to Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check now and check for the update manually.
Since the update is small in size, you can download the update via your mobile internet plan. But, we recommend you to have a battery backup of about 50% or more, before you install the update.
