Right. It's excessive in numerous ways. The animations are intentionally slow as if to say "look at me", which is a turn off for me.Was really impressed at first, but there is too much going on for everyday use. It is too long from the term minimalistic with all those unnecessary things. And boy. The colors. I must say that it is really bad design.
Honest opinion - blinding white everywhere, they took away basic features like silent mode and ticker notifications, battery life isn't improved at all after all the hype.
I'm sure its a great OS, Material design is beautiful, but its an unfinished OS with too many bugs and its not even well designed with the whites for an AMOLED screen which is in the Nexus 6.
Yeah, Lollipop is the Android equivalent to iOS 7, IMO--brand new design that can be a bit off-putting (I personally really like both, including the use of white) but a bit rough around the edges. I like the direction Google went with the design, just needs some tweaking and time to mature.Yep. Same with iOS 7/8. There is one thing I want from both iOS9 and Android 5.x.... Dark theme or night mode! For the love god please!
Who, other than Apple fans, calls it that? I quite like it on my Moto X.It's referred to as "Lollipoop" for a reason.
Honestly, they should have spent less time on that god awful material design garbage and actually fixed the bugs and stopped regressing features from previous versions.
Let's just hope they snap out of it and "reboot" 6.0 to be the exact opposite of 5.0.
Um, maybe everyone who can't use their Nexus 7 anymore since 5.0 rendered it useless? Or the other actual Android fans that admit it's a flop:Who, other than Apple fans, calls it that? I quite like it on my Moto X.
That's like saying the WiFi is on by default why should I switch it off...Shouldn't have to. It's too slow by default.
I feel like Lollipop is like what OS X 10.3 or 10.4 was. OS X had aqua, which was a little excessive and Apple eventually scaled it back. I expect the same from Android.
Those folks can always go back to 4.4.4 if 5.0 is that bad. Going back isn't possible on iOS...Um, maybe everyone who can't use their Nexus 7 anymore since 5.0 rendered it useless? Or the other actual Android fans that admit it's a flop:
