    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.

    Does the Nexus 5 have to be rooted in order to install Android L?

    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!)

    nah nothing like that. Pretty much agree with Derragon, might revert it back to kit kat and wait until official release!

    Can't wait for the full release. But for now I am going to pass on installing it.

    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.
