Google Nexus 5 by LG Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

It's improved for me, I had nearly 3 hours of on screen time at 58% battery earlier before I hooked up the charger.

I wonder why my battery life is so horrible. I don't set max brightness, I don't play games on it much either. I watch vids, do a little productivity and browse the web, I don't even takes pics or video much anymore.

Sometimes I don't even get that.... I love my N5 but am certainly looking forward to a new phone with better battery life.

Project Volta has been a fail for my nexus 5. Battery life has been terrible nice lollipop. I get less than 2 1/2 hours of on screen time since the update even with low brightness. I wonder how battery life is for the nexus 6?

about 2 and 15 mins of on screen time.

I got 4hrs of SOT yesterday the best I've gotten on this phone since I purchased it last November. I also removed a bunch of preloaded apps I don't use with titanium backup.

I've seen a big increase in battery life.  I vaguely remember 12 hours on battery with 41% battery left and around 20 min screen time.  Standby seem to use almost no battery.  I'll pay more attention to it today.

Has anyone have problems with Wi-Fi in Lollipop? Wi-Fi access point that have been connected lose connection and a "authentication failure" message impedes an automatic reconnection to the access point. A manual connect or switching on/off Wi-Fi fixes it. Also I'm not seeing great battery life and I guess it's Wi-Fi related.

 

Anyone else with a similar experience?

that could be a good point, I was having WiFi issues but I just shut it off unless I'm doing something big.

Just noticed that even though I have Wi-Fi off, in the battery data it appears on. a6917bf2d30111a68ab76a145f195736.jpg

Can someone confirm that if you have Wi-Fi off it wouldn't appear on the battery data?

boy this is weird.  trying to update the OTA files with custom recovery and the zip fails.  I have 4.4.4 and have for quite awhile.  The error states that it can not proceed because i have KVT49L installed..... that was software for the Nexus 7 and is the Verizon edition.  Wtf?

 

I had to use stock recovery and side load the OTA.  I tried using TWRP and flashing it like I did with previous OTA's but it just gave me an error that did not seem related to the recovery.  Put the stock recovery on and side loaded with ADB and it worked fine.

how do i do that? you didnt lose anything right?  i suppose if that were the case you would have just flashed the entire factory image.

You can flash parts of the factory image separately, flashing the recovery shouldn't lose any user data. Flashing the full image will cause you to lose data though.

Have you turned off always on WiFi scanning in settings -> WiFi -> advanced?

Everything is off. There is a thread in XDA regarding this issue. Apparently plenty of Nexus 5 owners are experiencing the same issue.

Now that you mention it, it looks like I'm having the same issue as well. I double checked, and I do have Settings -> WiFi -> Advanced -> "Scanning always available" unchecked, but from 10 AM, which is when I tuned off WiFi, to now, I still have WiFi "on" according to the battery history graph..

 

This is probably that same WiFi battery drain bug that was supposedly squished a while ago on Lollipop. Hopefully this isn't the next Camera Daemon bug that plagued KitKat.

Anyone know if the Nexus 5 has a stronger radio/antenna (in terms of LTE connectivity) than the Galaxy S5? Trying to figure out which phone latches on the an LTE tower better.

I've. seen a solid 5 bugs or removed features since going to 5.0

 

Just got the OTA notification for 5.0.

 

Is it worth the jump considering a few of the bugs at this point?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
