Ten Things to Know About Android 5.0 Lollipop

Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop, is slowly making its way to the masses. It’s available on the new Nexus devices , and the update is beginning to roll out to other models, such as the older Nexus products and the latest Moto phones. Lollipop (Google names each major OS update after a sweet treat) is a massive overhaul of the platform, and I briefly mentioned some of the new features in my review of the Nexus 6 . But there is a lot more to the OS, so in this column, I’ve included some other settings and functions that will help you get the most out of Android Lollipop.

Ready, set, tap and go

If you’ve ever switched between Android devices before, you know that the set-up process can be a pain. You never know if all your apps are going to download to the new model, and you have to customize all your settings again. But Android Lollipop helps simplify the process in two different ways.

If your old and new device has NFC — a short-range wireless technology — a feature called Tap & Go allows you to transfer your apps and settings wirelessly via Bluetooth. Simply touch the backs of both devices to each other until you hear a beep. Tap OK when prompted on your old phone, and sign in to your Google account. Then go grab a tasty beverage while your data downloads to your new phone or tablet.

If you don’t have an NFC-enabled phone, or need to reset your current model, bypass the Tap & Go screen during setup, and enter your Google login and password. You’ll then be given the option to restore from a previous backup. From the drop-down menu, select which device/backup you want to restore from. Beneath that, you can also choose which apps you want to transfer over, or simply select all.

Where is that setting again?

All the major smartphone platforms, including Android, offer a quick-access menu for frequently used settings,... Source: Upcoming Mobile Phones 2015
