Lava is quickly bringing Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its smartphone line-up. Shortly after releasing the OTA update for its Iris X1 Grand, Lava extended the new software to its Iris Fuel 50 smartphone.
As the software is taking the traditional over-the-air route, users can connect download and install Android 5.0 Lollipop on their smartphone immediately.
This is an important update for Iris Fuel 50 smartphone owners as it brings a complete overhaul and a refreshing design. If users haven't received a software update notification on their phones, they should navigate to Settings > About Phone > Software Update to initiate a manual install. The entire change-log was not shared by Lava, but the company reiterated the Lollipop-related changes in its official blog post.
According to the post, the Lollipop update on Lava Iris Fuel 50 brings the critically-acclaimed Material Design UI along with performance boosters and new features. After updating the software, users are welcomed with a new interface, complete with a revamped notification panel, multi-tasking, new language support and lot more.
Lava also highlighted two useful battery features, one which shows how much time is left to fully charge the device and another one that limits background activity to push the battery life at a dying stage. Like in other phones, Lollipop update also brings the Interruptions feature, which helps users adjust audio settings of the device.
"The Interruption settings allow for just one set of on/off. You will still need to take action to handle things completely. Simply turn Priority mode on/off by pressing your volume button then choosing Priority, just remember to turn it back to 'All' when your sleep/work is done," Lava explains.
Users can also take advantage of multi-tasking feature post update, which shows incoming call alerts while playing games. Previously, the game application used to force-close whenever there was a call.
Before installing the update, make sure your device is connected to a secure Wi-Fi network. The Lollipop update weighs 550MB, making it a heavy download on carrier networks.
