The Nexus 5 might take the lead in the Android market for running the most updated version of the Lollipop firmware, where tech giants like Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) are still rolling out devices that host the previous versions. As consumers gather more awareness of tech mobile platforms used in smart devices, tech companies make the huge effort of launching models that run on the latest operating systems.

Android market is even more stiff in terms of competition, as the technology is being used by several tech companies, as opposed to the iOS that runs on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) devices alone. Hence, the need of the time for these rivals is to keep abreast with newer technologies coming in to the market, as the competition continues to grow beyond boundaries.

Samsung (NASDAQOTH:SSNLF) has released an updated Android 5.0 Lollipop version on its much prized and latest Galaxy S5 that has build number SM-G900F in Poland, on Monday. While this update leaves customers who recently bought the older version of the S5 device, the company is soon to point out that it is mainly a performance and stability update, which has not much to do with any major changes that might have left the older version way back in terms of functionality.

Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s efforts of keeping latest technologies on its devices points to the company’s efforts to make itself the trending brand in this market. The Nexus 5, which wasn’t the preferred choice when it came to the smartphone options available in the market at the moment, the tech giant’s efforts to keep it updated with the latent technologies, translates its efforts of staying ahead of the game and maintaining the leader’s status in the market.
