The update packs the features Google revealed with Android 5.1. One notable change is the addition of Device Protection, which ensures that a lost or stolen device will remain locked until the original owner signs into it with his or her Google account. Android 5.1 also adds High Definition voice calling and includes a variety of bug fixes and performance enhancements. You can read our full run down of Android 5.1 features here.
