The Micromax Canvas A1 and the Spice Dream UNO Android One smartphones have already started receiving the Android Lollipop (5.1) update and now the same has been rolled out on the Karbonn Sparkle V smartphone.

Like the other Android One smartphones the Android 5.1 update on the Karbonn Sparkle V will be an OTA (over the air). Users will get the notification or they can manually check for the same using software update option in settings –> about. Make sure to take a backup – though not really required, and also keep the battery at over 75% before you hit the install update button.

Though Sparkle V android one smartphone was the last to get this lollipop update, it is still good news for those who are using the handset. So go ahead and update the software to lollipop and do leave your feedback in the comment section below.

  8. My device is karbonn sparkle v. I recently updated it to lollipop 5.1. Before in KitKat I have QUICK OFFICE as inbuilt aop. After updating to 5.1 I lost it.
    What about you guys?

    1. U can download QuickOffice from Mobogenie. Perhaps it is not on Google PlayStore.

      * Really Lollipop brings a good job including softness & design to my Sparkle V. Althouth it has some minor issues…

  9. I have update my karbonn sparkle v lollipop but I need to switch back to KitKat will I get KitKat after factory reset?

  10. After update to android 5.1 their is two photo application. Which i could not remove and when in app info it shows it is google .but google is already. What to do about this problem.

    1. Go to apps. And disable both of them. Switch off and on Enable it. Then we get only one. Mine is same problem I solved it like this.

  11. Yes, I updated to 5.1
    Nice look
    Soft flow
    But I found two gallery icons after updating.
    I disabled both of them.
    And then enable it.
    Then I got single icon of gallery.
    Q :Why Google deleted app manager from KitKat onwards?

    1. Try link 2 sd app from googleplay but it will be working on rooted device to root check xda forum

  12. I have updated my sparkle v to lollipop 5.1 before the update notification from the direct google ota link.

    After updating if you get error like no sim cards, just don’t worry update all google apps, you sims start working. First boot take more time to load and after you see message android updating, just wait to finish. You will get new feel with lollipop 5.1 running on your device, awesome!!

    Now its a week old updated on my phone, no issues, go ahead and update to latest. If you are not connected to internet, you will notice exclamation sign on both the sims. Both sims work perfect, 3g/2g or 2g/2g i.e. which ever mod you use. No app crashes, just after updating you still need internet connection for error free process.

  13. Now it become 1st lolipop phone under 4800 as it is available for 4799 on snapdeal

  14. I have also updated my canvas A1 today, phone seems new but many apps like chrome,Facebook crashes many time, this incident was not happening on kitkat.

  15. Hi gogi,i updated my canvas unite 2 with 5.0. Which was done at service center, will we be getting ota as u mentioned earlier, and will it be 5.1. Thanks

      1. All i know is about unite 2,i read it somewhere and one of our friend on also mentioned about the same so i got it done,you can check at nearest service centre..

    1. me 2 wandering about dat bro..
      but no replies..! huh..!
      could u please tell the details after upgrading to lollipop???
      lyk is operamini blinks display on surf??
      any diff in app installation storage?
      battery lyf???

      1. I dont know about opera mini issue as I am using uc,storage both app and normal is combined now,4.90GB is available. Battery life is on good side but I will have to use it some more to comment on it, initially it looks good.

  16. INKA TO PROMISS THA NA SABSE PHLE UPDATE DENE KA….wo promiss kha gya…..means google bhi ab bevkoof bana rahi hai customers ko…

    1. no friend android one phones is among first few phones running on Android 5.1
      yes ,they not provided Android 5.0 because this version is not fully optimization and bugs .

  17. I have already updated my karbonn sparkle v to lollipop on last saturday.. It is good from certain angles but also bad in certain angles…

    1. please describe its pros and cons

      My friend using SPICE A1 seeking my advice whether to update or not…

      The reason he wants to update is It support our regional language “odia”

      please give some opinion.

      1. Ya it supports 15 other regional languages and its good looking very colorful but sometimes apps crashes and also some apps doesn’t work smoothly on lollipop it crashes even candy crush crash about 5 time in a day on my mobile after lollipop update.

  18. Actually the update was rolled out 3 days earlier…. It is of 409.8 mb and demands only Wi-Fi for its download…..
    People who were complaining for late update, should consider that Google has jumped 2 buggy versions 5.0,1 and 5.0.2 and directly has provided the uupdat for 5.1.

    1. Approximately you should have 500MB data balance. Make sure you have so before you hit the Install update button.

  19. Hi,
    I just got the lolly pop update for my canvas A1.
    Its cool and phone now seems to be new ! 🙂

      1. From the day one, the A! battery backup is average! So it will be offence to expect the decent battery backup now.
        Now it is 4th day with lollipop.. its very much the same i feel.
