After the announcement by Google Inc came knocking at the door concerning the new operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop, the big question on everybody’s lips was about which devices would get the update. Some manufacturers had already upped their game and were ready while others held their peace as users of their smartphones wallowed in oblivion of what would be their fate. Let’s remind ourselves of the companies that were on their toes to get the new OS even as we help you look for a dependable manufacturer for your next smartphone.

Being the mastermind behind the game, Google was definitely the first to lead the park with its Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 among other devices.

DID YOU KNOW? Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Motorola followed suit, confirming that several of its devices were in for the treat including Moto X, 2013 and 2014 models, Moto G LTE, Moto E, etc.

HTC was also not left behind with its HTC One series of devices.

Sony followed closely after with its fleet of Xperia Z series devices.

Nvidia hopped onto the bandwagon with its Nvidia Shield tablet.

Samsung could definitely not miss out of the equation, having first confirmed that its Google Play edition Samsung Galaxy S4 would top the list.

LG closed this list with confirmation about its Google Play edition LG G Pad 8.3 leading the list of its devices to receive the update.

So there we are folks. Next time Google announces an OS update, being on one of the trains above could save you the uncertainty that many have suffered in the hands of unwilling manufacturers.
