Prepare your Nexus 6, Android 5.1 Lollipop might begin to roll out today!
After the official announcement of Android 5.1 Lollipop and the subsequent release of the factory images, it was only a matter of time before we began hearing tips about its arrival on consumers' devices. 

It seems the Google Nexus 6 will be among the first Android champs to receive the freshest Lollipop version (LMY47D) over-the-air starting today (March 11), as information about the update has been spotted on Sprint's official website. 

Sprint's software update brings about all the goodies that Android 5.1 Lollipop has in store. This is not all, however - the firmware update also brings aboard Factory Reset Protection, as well as a fix for duplicate SMS messages being sent, a bug that plagued the Android 5.0 experience on some mobile carriers.

Still no lollipop update for my galaxy note 4 (N910H Exynos) yet! Unfortunately Nexus devices are hard to find let alone buy around here. I think for these nexus Android updates alone Samsung would have a hard time keeping my money. Great going Samsung :-(
