Why are some applications slower than the others after upgrading to Android 5.0 Lollipop?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

A new application file format is applied on the Android platform for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Due to these changes, the file formats of each installed application must in turn be updated and recently used applications are updated first during the initial booting after the upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop. So it’s possible that some applications are not yet fully updated to the new format after the OS SW update.


When reopening some out of date apps for the first time, they may take slightly longer than before to open due to initial optimization process required with Android OS 5.0.


The application speed will be normalized after file format updating.


Note: User memory size estimate relates to Android 5.0 feature and is not exclusively applicable to Samsung devices only.
