Android Lollipop 5.1.1 and Samsung Galaxy 6

August 19, 2015 by Michael Diez

Happy to report that the latest release of Android Lollipop 5.1.1 is out for Verizon, and Memory Leak seems to be fixed.

Before the update, I had to restart my Samsung Galaxy edge 6 every 2 hours, or my phone would become so sluggish the keyboard would take 5 seconds to pop up. I am also an app developer, and debugging apps on the Samsung Galaxy edge with Lollipop 5.0.1 was very frustrating.

Now the keyboard is ultra responsive. I am using swiftkey with a snippets plugin called TextPhrases. My apps fly on Lollipop 5.1.1. I had to use my old Samsung Galaxy 3 which was faster. Now my Galaxy edge 6 on Lollipop 5.1.1 leaves my s3 in the dust.

Omg, I actually considered going iOS for my next phone. Looks like I'll be good for a while.
