   > would you please summarize the motivations for dropping android 5.0 support?
   > as you already know android 5.0 can update its webview to the latest version so it
is very capable to run modern web apps.
   The full discussion on this can be found at
   To Summarize:
   - Android 5.0 was deemed to have an insignificant market share
   - Android 5.0 was known to be buggy with severe memory leaks, which were resolved in 5.1
   - Apparently not all vendors implemented the updatable webview in Android 5.0.
   - Users can always override the `minSdkVersion` to `21` if they really wanted to have their
app available to android 5.0, and Cordova will **probably** work.
