Yeah I'm running it on my N5 -- it's decent. The preview is obviously unfinished in some areas as some of the tabs still have the old look. Scrolling is way faster and I feel like the battery life has improved. I love the quick toggles and I like the new lock screen (they removed lockscreen widgets).

Hopefully they'll keep updating the preview throughout the year until release. I get my G Watch next week, I can't wait to play around with it.

I have tried it out; liked the overall feel of it and the look, however ran into an issue with some hardware overlays (which can be fixed! but requires you to enable dev. options). Other than that didn't really have any problems. Battery life was also pretty great, but personally do not recommend it as a daily driver (yet!)

It's preview software, there's gonna be bugs. Google even warned that the code is not even close to stable yet.

Facecook app has been updated and doesnt have transparent background for comments anymore. So far so good. Battery life is definitely improved a little bit.

Looks like the update will be live before the end of the month. Up to 90 minutes extra battery life sounds impressive.

If battery really will last 30% longer, then "bravo" to google.

True that. I have read in several sources about the improvements and enhancements in battery life.

Stamina/power saving mode has been improved by even further cpu down-clocking when necessary as well as other tweaks in order to save battery.

Other improvements and additions in Android L:

- 64 bit support will also be included
- For camera enthusiasts, RAW support will be supported
- Polished UI
- New soft keys and notifications
- Improved security
- Device sharing
- New messaging app
- Runs faster and more efficient than the current Kitkat OS
- Improved graphics
- Increased ram support
