The first build of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for Nexus 5 was released several months ago and it was quite solid. However, some Nexus 5 owners still had some issues with it and this is when Google started to issue some fixes on this Android version.
In August 2015, Google has released a new Android 5.1.1 build for the Nexus 5. This new build was released mainly to fix a serious issue which was found in this operating system and that’s the “Stagefright” vulnerability, which allowed hackers to gain access to the affected mobile devices.
This month, Google has released another Android 5.1.1 build for Nexus 5, which came with other fixes and security improvements. The OTA update is rolling out on all Nexus 5 devices and it has only 16MB.
Even if the update has only 16MB, it seems that there are users who are already complaining about it, saying that this new build comes with some annoying issues. According to some users who installed this new update, the performance of their Nexus 5 was significantly decreased for some reason.
However, it seems that there are no issues regarding the battery life of the Nexus 5. With other words, if you had some battery life issues with the previous Android 5.1.1 build, we suggest you to try out this new build.
When it comes to bugs and issues, we haven’t heard anyone complaining about a major problem that the new Android 5.1.1 build might have. However, that doesn’t mean that the new update is bug-free or anything like that. So, you should expect some minor bugs and issues, as in any new Android OS update that gets released.
The latest Android 5.1.1 build for the Nexus 5 is very stable and we’re sure that it will remain stable until the Android 6.0 Marshmallow will get released for this device. The update comes with security updates, bug fixes and it doesn’t have any major bugs, which means that it is worth installing it on your Nexus 5 device.
