Android 5.0 Lollipop has open doors to new possibilities when it comes to mobile devices. Google has introduced new features that would further revolutionize the way we use our smartphone devices.

With every iteration of the OS, it’s undeniable that things doesn’t work as always as the designer intended the OS will do, while some areas are typically ironed-out before they become publicly available, some areas are left overlooked and that’s why Google is working hard to patch and fix those faulty areas with incremental updates.

With Android 5.1 on the way, Google is fixing a memory leak bug the plague Android 5.0 Lollipop early builds. This problem is properly documented and being discussed through Google’s Android Open Source Code issue tracker forum.

When the OS was first launched preloaded on new devices, users have complains on app crashes, launcher issues and even poor performance. The culprit was that the memory leak happens in the background processes. The Android Team at Google have already fixed the issue internally but it’s still uncertain when the search giant will release the said fix.
