The fever of Android Lollipop hasn’t ended yet but Google, like always have kept the Android OS exciting to the edge. This ultimately seems to be the reason Android OS rules the market. With newer upgrades, new features, new looks updated so often that even before all the devices get an update the flagships are ready for a future release. That is the reason Android has a huge market share.
The recent development on the Android Marshmallow, has left the users tizzy and the comparisons to the older version, Lollipop have already begun. Android Lollipop took a hit, with its 5.1.1 version with many users complaining about the most important factor of the device, the battery. Although, Lollipop scored brownie points with material design and user interface, battery issues with its priority bogged down the universal appeal.
Marshmallow is particularly enticing because, there are rumors that the battery life is 3x times better than the battery time found on the devices running Lollipop. It is also noted that Marshmallow is going to have many significant performance upgrades which are essentially under the hood. With the Developer preview already out for Nexus devices, a YouTube user, adrianisen has compared the boot times of the device running Lollipop and Marshmallow. Watch it here.
The results were definitive. Lollipop booted faster than the Marshmallow did. Given that the Lollipop was running on the bloat infested Samsung-ware, the results are admittedly more shocking than usual. Granted that developer previews, are slower and buggy than the original releases, the rumors surrounding the performance of Android Marshmallow got a slight taint.
Marshmallow is going to be seen first in Samsung S6 Edge+ and Samsung Note5, by 2016. This new OS among other said upgrades is going to bring, a new way of handling app permissions, quick fingerprint access, auto-backup of files, memory tracker and app shutting processes among many other.
