Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie | Is it next big thing for smartphones OS or hype
Following the alphabetical order in its style of naming, the next version of Android is about to come, the successor of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean would be the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. The Google, developers of this tremendous mobile operating system continued to name the software’s on something sweet-eatables. Beginning the journey on Android 1.5 Cupcake, this OS has helped mobile manufacturers to topple the leaders of the market and claim the throne of mobiles, and changing the trend to having a smartphone rather than a mobile phone.
This smartphone OS, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie has many specification upgrades which were not present in the earlier versions. One major change that might appear on the new Android 5.0 OS is the SMS integration to the Google ID that is even if a regular device changer need not store the SMS’s on the sim card, just connecting to a new Android device will ensure a sync of all the messages. In the last years Google summit here in India, we were shown the awesomeness about to come in the Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich’s successor the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but hands-on experience wasn’t as cool as expected. Only a very few minor feature upgrades were seen.
Though we are keen on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, when you look at the special feature of the Android 4.1 and 4.2 Jelly Bean, it was voice recognition system. This wasn’t a cool feature either. Being a Jelly Bean User I was never satisfied with this feature. The Google Developers claim to check this out as a major task as Apple Mac OS run iPhone’s ‘Siri’ gives better results on voice commands putting them in lead of the race. Thought the Android has a larger market share in the smartphone segment, feature wise iOS is no less their only glitch being the Apple Maps.
The Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is expected to deliver much better UI than its predecessors. The UI is sure a watchable changes because the UI in Google’s flagship model Nexus has been a huge hit when this topic arises, excellent display and feedback, which also depends on the hardware though, being an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean powered device the UI was exceptional. Taking advantage of the Android’s Open Source capability, HTC has given great UI in its new smartphone HTC One. Blink Feed is the name they gave to it, with which the user can always be socially connected powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
So rather not expecting any great advances in the OS, the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie might jus be another great Android OS with superior user experience.
