    Here's What's New in Android 5.1 Lollipop

    HD Voice Calling

    High definition voice calling stands for crystal audio quality on voice calls over supported networks. You cannot take advantage of this special feature until unless your network provider would support it.

    Device Protection

    This security feature ensures that your device will remain protected even if it gets lost or stolen, it will stay locked until you sign in with your account info.

    Interruptions improvements

    One of the main issues with the Interruption modes in Android 5.0 was that there were no silent mode settings. Well, there still isn't a silent mode in Android 5.1, but the interruptions function has been improved. Android 5.1 solves this issue by including a new setting for both Priority and None that lets you automatically disable them at the next alarm time.

    Heads-up notifications

    Notifications were obviously of the main highlights of the Android 5.0. The main problem, however, was that you couldn't make the notification go away without completely dismissing it. Now it just removes that notification by swiping to the side to clear that particular notification.

    Dual SIM Support

    This feature is quite popular in India, where devices often come with two SIM slots. The concept hasn't really caught in the west yet. Android 5.1 also adds support for multiple SIM cards, so we can now expect to see more manufacturers in the west to launch handsets with dual-SIM support.
