The Best of Google's Android Lollipop in 8 GIFs

Android Lollipop has been around as a developer preview for months, but the real version—complete with all its new Material Design tricks—is due to hit with the Nexus 9 on November 3rd. We're getting our first extended looks at the final version on our Nexus 6 and 9 review units, so here's a few GIFs to hold you over until it shows up on your phone.

A lot of the new look depends on app makers (and Google) updating to the new material design guidelines, but there's plenty of freshness in the basic skeleton of the OS too.
