    Android 5.1 gets an official announcement with updates rolling out soon | Android Central
    Oh yeah, baby!!!

    As for me, gotta wait for Cyanogenmod to lay it over their ROM. Hope it is not too long.

    Once it's out for the N6, I just have to wait for the modified boot img to come out so I can keep my device decrypted

    Why does this take so long to get to the Nexus 6? I bought one because I wanted to get updates right away when they are announced, but here I sit at 5.0.1, not even the 5.0.2 that was released weeks ago.

    Sounds like a person that never worked in IT before. 5.0.2 never officially rolled out to the Nexus 6 because it was only a few weeks old and this is a brand new piece of hardware relatively speaking. these things take a little time if you want something that is stable. if you don't want stable, root your device and load the first one that drops from a Dev.

    Man, that's kind of harsh.
    Think 5.02 still had a major memory leak.
    Gods willing, 5.1 does not.

    Whenever a new version of Android is released, most of the other recent Nexus devices get it almost instantly. I don't think it's ignorant to expect the same on the newest Nexus device, which is what your post implies. Apple is able to release iOS versions the same day as they are announced, so it's not like it's impossible to do.

    I would not say ignorant I would say naive. Part of what is rolling out with this new version is HD Voice on Verizon (the largest carrier in the United States) . I am sure they are testing the crap out of it before it rolls out for production. 2 years from now when this phone is old you will get drops the same day everyone else does.

    Still no mute function with Lollipop (although, according to the article, Samsung was able to include a mute option in its revised version of Lollipop) ???!!!

    Mute what? Your voice on a call? I have that. Or are you talking about something else like notifications... I'm confused.

    In the end, what's the difference between the current "none" and the old "mute"? OK, you have to tap on the screen rather than just the volume rocker, but to me that's not a big deal.

    Also I think that having a distinction between none and priority is quite useful - I do want my parents to be able to call me in the middle of the night.

    Only one SKU for all models. So if one phone is getting it then all the phone are getting it. Just will be a staged roll out. Just so happens to be the day before Verizon launches the phone and it's too have a day one update to 5.1.

    I always look forward to updates... but at the same time it amazes me how restless people get when an update is announced... Unless you are having a major issue with your device that a particular update is meant to fix I don't understand the "I NEED IT NOW" mentality of most... My Nexus 6 works great... I actually decided not to root this one and it works just like I want it to work.. Any improvement should be minimal at best.. Heck 99.9% of the time when they roll out a new .1, .2 or whatever update I can't even really tell any difference...

    When it hits it hits... Not even going to worry about side loading when the factory image is out... Phone works great so no rush..

    I have Sprint, and I got this phone in November. I've been awaiting a fix for my SMS issues since then.

    Please don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not trying to flame here. I just found it strange that other updates took so long to get to the Nexus 6 compared to the other current Nexus devices is all. I love my device, and Android 5.0. I just think an announcement and roll out go better together than spaced apart
