Features

Android L introduces a refreshed notification system. Individual notifications are now displayed on cards to adhere to the material design language, and batches of notifications can be grouped by the app that produced them. Notifications are now displayed on the lock screen as cards, and notifications can also be displayed as large banners across the top of the screen, along with their respective action buttons.

Google estimated that ART improves application performance by four times over Dalvik. This means that instead of compiling code every time it runs, applications are compiled once and stored. This, in turn, means it’s more useful to squeeze out every last performance and architectural optimization.

Android L also aims to improve battery consumption through a series of optimizations known as “Project Volta”.

Among its changes are a new battery saver mode, job scheduling APIs which can restrict certain tasks to only occur over Wi-Fi, and batch tasks together to reduce the overall amount of time that internal radios are active.

There’s also a “battery saver” mode that kicks in aggressively when only 15 percent of the battery remains.

Among the many changes in Android L, one of the most long-overdue is a set of enhancements to make the lock screen more useful. While the biggest change is the addition of lock screen notifications.

When your phone is charging, the estimated amount of time left until it’s 100% charged will be displayed on the bottom of the lock screen.

  1. excellent publish, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of this sector
    don’t realize this. You must proceed your writing. I’m confident,
    you’ve a huge readers’ base already!

  2. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  3. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  4. Wonderful website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced individuals
    that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Appreciate it!
