Android 5.0.1 coming today to T-Mobile's Nexus 5 and Nexus 6

You need to make sure that your Nexus 5 or Nexus 6 is currently running software build LRX210. You also need to have the battery on your phone charged to at least 50%. And it is necessary for you to be hooked up to a Wi-Fi network, although Android 5.0.1 will be available over a cellular pipeline at a later time. And with the update weighing in at 13.3MB, you should make sure that you have sufficient room on your handset for it.
Android 5.0.1 is being sent OTA and when it hits your phone, you will see the appropriate notification. As usual, the update will be sent out on a staggered basis. If you do not receive the notification today, there is no reason for you to jump. Eventually, you will receive it. You can also try to coax it out of your phone by going to Settings > About phone > System Updates > Check now.

UPDATE: We should also point out that the Sprint version of the Nexus 5 will also start receiving Android 5.0.1 today.

I have a nexus 4 and I have got a ton of problems. Like the access points changes automatically, wifi sometimes gets cut off, random reboots and few other common bugs! I really hope they solve these issues otherwise I may be going towards cyanogen!

iphones don't get android updates lmao and the problem with samsung phones and many other android phones is the even though the oem might provide the update then its on the service provider to distribute the update.

Android update is not as crucial as before when the platform is maturing. As long as the Android device is jelly bean and above the user will get the full Android experience. What I now dislike is update that are buggy and slow down older model phones. Sound familiar.

Other than ART and 64-bit, I don't think there's anything much in Android 5.0 Lollipop that's good for the Android community at large. Mostly it's just Google cramming their "material" app design down everyone's throat and making the phones harder to customize. Nexus 6 is a decent phone, but it could have been much nicer without Google's spyware draining the battery so fast.
