Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with a variety of features, some of which were discussed in the previous post. You can read about them here. This post presents some more tips for the Lollipop OS which can be advantageous to you if you are an existing Lollipop user or even if you are awaiting Lollipop update for your device.

Lock screen security:

Until Android 4.4 Kitkat, face unlock was the unique feature but with Lollipop, Google thought of providing more security to the device by providing Bluetooth unlock. Moving forward from the traditional pattern lock or PIN lock, Lollipop provides with Trusted face lock, place lock or Bluetooth device lock.

Go to Settings -> Smart Lock and select the type of unlock you are interested in.

Email App:

The good old email app is now dead, more or less. When you go into the email app in Lollipop, it redirects to the main Gmail app by default by notifying you that “email has been made better with Gmail”. This doesn’t mean that you do not have the option of adding any exchange or POP/IMAP email accounts to your Lollipop device. This can be done by entering into the email app and choose to add “other” accounts.

Battery Saver Mode:

Many smartphones have apps running in the background even if they are not in use at a given point of time. Even though allowing these apps to work in the background helps in staying updated, it can drain out the battery of your phone a little faster than normal. Android is no exception to that. Enabling battery saver mode restricts this action and extends the battery life.
