Which Android phones will be getting Google's Lollipop update?

While Android users the world over are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Lollipop, one question is chief in everybody's minds: "Will my phone be getting it?"

If yours isn't from 2014, scour over the list below and see if your phone is listed. If not, don't fret since some manufacturers have yet to announce their lists.

If you own a Samsung phone though... you're probably screwed with late updates according to this status report (Photo source: Justaboutphones):

While this isn't up to date, it's a good indicator on the pace the upgrades are coming along. While there are rumours that Samsung will speed things up with the imminent arrival of Lollipop, it's all just conjecture at this point.

Update: A more recent screenshot of Samsung's latest status report indicated that the Galaxy Note 3 will probably be upgraded to Android 5.0 in February 2015, and the Galaxy S4 the following month.
