Android Lollipop offers you notifications you can interact with. You can flip em through the home screen and make a quick reply on preview on the notification right from the lock screen. When you are on another app and there is a call, the notifications slides from the top and you can now accept or reject the call, it no longer interferes with what you are doing on your phone.

It also gives you a battery saver mode that, when switched on can give you hours of critical time on your phone. All the Google centric apps have been re designed. There are a lot of different software tweaks to support wide variety of products. It has new support for both Android Wear and Android Auto.  Each phone will get the update at a different time, to which you have no control of. So, don’t wait too much.
