You buy a cheap smartphone(in terms of price,2014) you are stuck on the same operating system for years. That was what ,Google refined ,bringing in the ‘Android One‘program launching first in India ,partnering in with the local smartphone vendors Spice ,Micromax and Karbonn .These devices are geared towards affordability giving you latest android updates for upto 2years. But ever since the release of Android lollipop on Nov 3,2014 there isn’t a official word about when this devices might get updated to ” Latest version ,ehh ? “.

But the promise of ” first in-Line ” to receive android updates wasn’t fulfilled ,since the emergence of lollipop on legacy nexus device there wasn’t a official word¬† ,regarding when would Android one devices be updated to latest version. Until now Googleindia tweeted that Android one devices in India will soon get the lollipop 5.1 update in coming weeks ! Seems like Android One devices are really first in-line to receive Lollipop 5.1 update ,since no other legacy devices have got the 5.1 update yet ,neither an official word ! Well personally ,as a Android one user ,I’ve got goosebumps after reading that official statement about the Software Update ,I can’t imagine how would i react when Lollipop lands on my device (Spice dream Uno : review in works )
