In this issue of Android Advisor : Since Android L was announced at Google I/O in June we’ve had a chance to spend some more time with Google’s best mobile OS yet. We’ll show you how it differs from Android KitKat, assess its impact on device performance, and give you a sneak peek at the new Material Design. If you like what you see, we’ll even show you how to install it on your own Nexus device.

We’ve also been having fun with Google Glass now that it’s finally available in the UK. Serious fun. Just imagine creeping up behind an unsuspecting Google Glass owner and softly speaking into their ear: “Ok Glass. Listen to Justin Bieber.” Or “Ok Glass. Google [insert something gross here].” They will hate you, but it is oh so much fun.

There’s a lot more to Google Glass than fun and games, though. It is unique, original and downright weird, as we note in our in-depth review. And in the right situation it can be an invaluable tool. We look at the five best- and five worst places to use Google Glass, and we’ll leave it to you to decide on whether it is appropriate in our final scenario.
