Android Lollipop 5.1
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 5.1 is the second version of the OS known as Lollipop. It takes the myriad improvements from Android 5.0-the "Material Design" visual overhaul, revamped multitasking, and multi-user support-and goes even further, adding official support for HD Voice and dual SIM cards, new security features such as Device Protection, and more.
Water-Resistant. Worry-proof.
You need your phone to be there for you, even in less-than-ideal conditions. IPX7-rated water protection is designed to keep your phone safe from splashes and drops in water. After an accidental splash into a puddle or sink, just dry off your phone and keep going.
Corning Gorilla Glass Display
