Verizon sending out Android 5.1.1 for the Ellipsis 8 tablet

Verizon Ellipsis 8

Verizon’s very own #Ellipsis8 tablet is now the recipient of the #Android 5.1.1 #Lollipop update, which is long overdue, but at the same time has come across as a surprise to us given that Verizon has never been good with update rollouts. However, the users will be glad to know that the update is finally seeding to their beloved budget Verizon tablet.

This is no doubt a big change as the device is currently running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, so the users are getting their first taste of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. This will bring an all new lockscreen, updated Quick Settings icons and an overall upgraded user interface as well as performance. Considering the size of the update, we recommend you to keep your device on an unlimited WiFi network in order to avoid losing your cellular data.

  1. Verizon should be ashamed of themselves for this update. Since the update my ellipses 8 states there is no sim card, I can no longer swipe my screen to open it, when it does start up, it is deadly slow, some of the apps crash, especially YouTube, I cannot start it in safe mode, it takes forever to start up, it turns itself off and reboots itself and no longer is able to recognize THAT I AM USING THE ORIGINAL CHARGING CORD SUPPLIED WITH THIS TABLET! NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS! VERIZON SHOULD SMARTEN UP AND PROVIDE A ROLLBACK FOR THIS UPDATE THAT HAS COMPLETELY TRASHED MY ELLIPSES!

  2. I do have Android 5.1.1 running on my Elipsis 8 and it might not what most users would want. After shortly updating, it was naturally pretty sluggish, I had to restart it several times and still didn’t really solve anything. After a day or 2 now that it has had some time to settle down with system commands, I can definitely see some type of performance increase. Now, the thing that kinda chocked me up about the update, is how they throttle the CPU and GPU back. With Android 4.4.* on the tablet, the clock speed was sitting around 1517 mhz (quad core). Now, with the update, its showing 1482 Mhz (quad core). CPU clock speed just doesn’t magically disappear but with every update, there is always something ‘fishy’ about it. The tablet is still kinda slow to switch apps and don’t even think about having a Skype call open while on another app unless your a big fan of lag. After a while now, Im starting to notice that it doesn’t recognize the sim card. A simple remove and reinsert usually fixes that, or if you wish to restart the tablet
