Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Android 5.0 (Lollipop) was officially announced on October 15th, 2014.

You can review the high-level changes at the Android website and the announcement on the official Android blog.

Of course, not all devices will get this update right away and others won't get it at all. Each manufacturer and carrier often choose to add their custom modifications which tend to delay the official release.

When will each device get Android 5.0, either officially or unofficially, if ever?
