Android Lollipop afflicted with memory leak bug, but Google is working on a fix


Lollipop is the latest and greatest version of Android from Google, but like all new software, there are a few bugs. The newest release has already had a few issues (that were promptly fixed) but now it looks like some Nexus devices are being bogged down with a memory leak on Android 5.0.1.

The issue causes the Android system to use up to over 1 GB of RAM instead of the typical 500 MB, so you’ll see tons of apps being force closed and home screen redraws. It’s not a devastating glitch, but it’s enough to be pretty annoying, especially if you like to use tons of apps at once. 

Fortunately, it looks like Google has found a solution and is working on implementing it. However, there’s no word on just when the fix will get pushed out to Nexus devices, but whenever you see the next incremental update you can bet the memory leak will have been addressed.
