The initial roll out was made to the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi, Nexus 6, Nexus 5 and Nexus 10. The release of the Android 5.1 update has been progressing out very slow although it started picking up steam in recent days.Yesterday, it was stated that the Android 5.1 Update on the Nexus 5 was pushing out in force.

The users of the Nexus 7 (3G) should anticipate the Android 5.1 build in their handsets.The release of the Android 5.1 update comes as a surprise since Google had a hard time rolling out the Android 5.1 version on the Nexus 7. The Android 5.1 update will appear as prompt once it is available. The Nexus 7 owners should occasionally check the update in the handset’s settings though the update is unpredictable it might not appear for some time.The Nexus 7 owners will be allowed to send a feedback and opinions regarding the new Android update in their handsets. Some of the owners will encounter awesome experiences while some have already reported that the Android 5.1update on the Nexus 7 has issues.Some of the problems Nexus tablets owners are complaining about are:
  • Extreme battery drain
  • Installation issues
  • Boot problems
  • Random freezing
