Android updates are typically met with an assortment of bugs, and the rollout of 5.0 Lollipop has no different, if not worse than previous updates. Over the past month, users across a wide range of Nexus devices, including the built-for-Lollipop Nexus 6 and 9, have reported issues with WiFi, sluggishness, app crashes, and more. If you have Nexus 7, 9, or 10, there’s already a 5.0.1 update waiting for you.
Not to be eclipsed by their fellow Nexus stablemates, some Nexus 4 users are now complaining about dialer issues. The problem appears to be pretty bad lag across the entire dialer interface, with three-second gaps between any presses and actual action occurring.
What’s more, some users say that when receiving a call, there’s an actual lag of three-to-four seconds after picking up before the caller can actually hear the recipient. As one frustrated user puts it, “In practice my phone is NOT a phone after lollipop [sic] update.”
Surely Google is aware of the problems and the 5.0.1 patch will be making its way to cellular devices soon, bringing with it some much-needed bug fixes and giving Android users something to cheer about.
