Last week's poll summary: Out of over 6,300 total votes, 51% of our readers said that they wouldn't buy a smartphone unless it had a great camera. 43.5% of our readers said smartphone camera quality is important, but not a make-or-break feature. 4.7% of voters said they don't care about smartphone camera quality at all.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably aware of all the new features present in the latest major version of Android, 7.0 Nougat. Multi-window mode, customizable quick settings, seamless updates and redesigned notifications are just a few of the big changes that Google included in Nougat.

But as we talk about new versions of Android, it’s hard not to look back at just how far our favorite mobile operating system has come over the years.

How Android evolved: 2014 to 2016 edition
Features

With Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google brought the powerful Now on Tap feature to devices, as well as app permissions, the new fingerprint API and Doze mode. Android 5.0 Lollipop introduced the wonderful Material Design user interface we all know and love, the ability to reply to notifications from your lock screen, and more. And with Android 4.4 KitKat, Google introduced the “Ok, Google” hotword, immersive design and deeper Google Now integration.

I was particularly fond of Android Lollipop (even though it was super buggy in the beginning), mainly because of the Material Design refresh. KitKat was great too, as I really loved being able to quickly access Google Now from the launcher on my Nexus 5.

So we want to know – what’s your favorite Android version of all time? Be sure to cast your vote in the poll attached below, and be sure to tell us your fondest Android memories in the comments below!
