Lava has released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its Pixel V1 smartphone.
The latest Android version is known to enhance the battery performance of the devices. It will bring the Doze feature that automatically puts the device into a sleep state to increase standby battery life. Its new App Standby prevents idle apps from consuming battery power.
The Android 6.0 will also bring more security features for Lava Pixel V1. Now apps designed for Android Marshmallow only ask for permission when it’s needed. Users can deny any permission and still continue to use the app.
The new Android version also brings a refreshed Google Now launcher that now offers search, fast alphabetic scrolling, and predictive app suggestions.
One of the noted features of Android Marshmallow is that it allows micro SD card storage to be converted as internal storage and thus allowing users to store their apps on SD card also. Otherwise you can choose to keep the SD card as external storage to keep your photos, musics, videos etc.
