Android M vs Android Lollipop

1. Native Fingerprint Support

The new fingerprint scanner support to stock Android will now benefit the entire Android ecosystem. This would effectively restrict the access of Android phones to their owners, something which is so far only possible on some of the high-end flagships from a select few manufacturers.

2. Android Pay

  Left off on lollipop android M brings android pay a great app

Using an open API, Android Pay will be available through Android’s own app, or integrated into other bank apps. It will be available in the US, compatible with existing contactless payment locations, such as those that currently accept Apple Pay (a must to compete with Apple Pay’s distribution) both at stores and in apps using their fingerprint.

3. Fast Charging

Besides making our batteries last longer, Android M is also bringing faster charging with USB-C support, which is a new type of USB connector..

4. Better Battery Life

Android M comes with a great feature called Doze….
Doze is a system state that will idle your device and background apps to a near-off state when you haven’t used it for a while, a tactic that can make your phone last twice as long as it would if your Lollipop phone were on standby with Project Volta. With an OS like Android which supports multitasking, there’s always a delicate balance between managing power and keeping applications running in the background updated.

5.Apps Permission

One of the big parts of Android M is a redesigned apps permissions system. Users will be able to approve or deny security permissions, such as camera or location access, on a case-by-case basis.

Currently, when you install an Android app, you agree to a range of permissions, such as what the app has access to. In Android M, you don’t have to agree to things you don’t want agree to. Instead, apps will ask permissions when you use a feature, rather than at installation.

6. Material King

 

Android M comes with the best material design ever…
