How to upgrade your smartphone to Android Lollipop

Always have the updated version of Android ideal. Each update brings security bug fixes and ensures compatibility of new applications with the device, as well as new features introduced with each version. As always, the availability of the update depends on the manufacturers and operators.

System upgrades tend to be cumbersome, so to upgrade the recommended system connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, to avoid over-spending your data plan and to have at least 50% of the battery charged.

After that, just access Settings> About Phone> System Updates. If there is an update to be made, it will appear on this page and you can start updating the system.

Note: The abbreviation n.a. means "information not available". Devices that were released running Android 6.0 Marshmallow were not added to the list.
