We’re just days away from seeing the first Android 5.0 devices start to ship. Google’s premium Nexus 9 tablet is set to launch this coming Monday, November 3rd, and Google’s first phablet will follow soon after, though an exact release date for the Nexus 6 is still unknown. What we do know, however, is that the new Lollipop software that powers both new Nexus devices features a stunning user interface overhaul and some great new features that Android users will love.

And what better way is there to show off those great new features than with a bunch of animated GIFs?
