Android 5.0 Lollipop vs Android 4.4.4 KitKat

You’ll notice with Android 5.0 Lollipop Google has made a lot of changes. Both with the look and feel, animations and effects, and the size of icons. Everything is more simple, bold, easier to understand, and extremely smooth. This is one of the biggest redesigns in Android history, so check out our visual slideshow below for a comparison of Android 5.0 Lollipop vs Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Top Features With Android Lollipop 5.1

1. Dual-Sim Support And Native Hd Voice Calling
Now, high-definition (HD) voice calling is native for Lollipop phones with Android 5.1, only if it’s supported by the carrier.

2. Notifications Settings
When   a heads up notification comes with Android 5.1, in during you’re    looking at the screen, now you can swipe it up to dismiss it but still keep it in the notifications shade and status bar. May be this is not a big change, but it can be a boom for gamers. Regrettably, the    notifications ticker is still in limbo though, but there is a  brand-new   icon for when no SIM card is inserted. You know Cos that  happens very   much.


3. Screen Pinning
Google introduced a great feature with Android 5.1 Lollipop that is  called   Screen Pinning. This is a great feature and can be used when you  want to keep single app on screen and do not want to accidentally switch  or   send it to the background- for example while playing games. So, use this to prevent that. Open the Settings app, tap Security, tap Screen   pinning (located under the “Advanced” heading). Next, toggle the screen   pinning toggle to the “on” position.
Also,  this feature has  parental control benefits as well. For  instance,  parents can give the  cell phone to their kids to play a game  without  the worry that the  child will delete something or call someone   accidentally.

4. Security Enhancements
Android 5.1 Lollipop comes with a Device Protection.” feature, and  the  setting  (when enabled) makes your Android phone useless to a thief by requiring the right Google login certifications to unlock the phone even after a factory reset, a software restore of a mobile phone to its original system state by deleting all of the information stored on  the mobile phones.


5. Gallery, Music and Video
The Gallery, Music and Video apps also get some fresh visual enhancements in the Lollipop release, while their functionality remains unchanged from the KitKat update.
Meanwhile, the Lockscreen adds a critical tweak to the push notifications, wherein the notifications can be disabled via actionable menus even without unlocking your device.
