The Nexus 5 Android 5.1 update, which recently rolled out courtesy of Google, carried high hopes for Nexus users. It is expected to offer a range of enhancements along with fixes for bugs. However, the release seems to have failed, having brought fresh issues instead of solving old ones.

Many Nexus users reported to encounter problems after installing Android 5.1 Lollipop, with memory leakage being one of the most common and persistent issues.

The latest update was intended to offer better controls for Bluetooth and Wi-fi, enhanced protection for the device, higher flexibility to deal with notifications and improved sound profiles. The update indeed shows some improvements on the above aspects, but at the same time, it introduced the bigger issue of memory leakage.

Draining of memory and automatic crashing of Google+ are the primary Android 5.1 problems users are experiencing, according to GottaBeMobile. As per online forums, even after closing an application, the memory space is still not being freed and keeps on filling up with every application, crashing the system.

The slow OTA roll-out process is the other problem users are faced with. Updates from Google are unpredictable and random, making it difficult for users to know if they are even using the latest features. However, in this case, getting updates late can be a boon in disguise, as it might save some from unexpected bugs of interim versions.
