Loving the new Android M developer preview. I flashed my Nexus 5 and my battery life has went up dramatically. Before I had some sort of Google play services bug that made it so I had to charge twice a day to this:

What settings are you using? I did standard install with everything defaulted on (location, google now etc) and I'm having abysmal battery life. The only other apps I downloaded besides the gapp updates were signal check pro, Tapatalk and inbox. This is 56 minutes screen on time.

 

The only way I ever got any decent battery life on 5.x was by disabling location, google location service, google now, OK google from any screen and android device manager while using xposed and greenify to keep all my apps from causing wake locks.

Anyone had a chance to try the "App Ops"/Permission Controls ? If so do you get control of all the permissions listed at instal? Any additional controls?

It's a toggle list for each permission. Keep in mind you will break some apps robbing them of permissions they need to function. This is the message you get when turning stuff off.

I have not yet gotten the OTA on my Nexus 5, but I tend to lose patience and just install it the hard way. I really want to know if Android M will bring WiFi calling support to my phone, has anyone who has done the update seen anything like this? I read some stuff saying that Android M is supposed to include this feature, but it is carrier dependent.

    • Curious as to how SCP works with it regarding NSA, particularly in markets with n41 BW=100 and second channel.
    • Downloading now. ****DVK3, 2.3 GB in size. 
    • T-Mobile eNB 879491/879493/879494 on the keep site map is located at 40.77536940167816, -73.92011957697034. Sprint eNB 5762 is now T-Mobile eNB 306271. Located at 40.582064139078206, -74.16175767702059 Weirdly both of the new Sprint conversions that have been found in Staten Island (eNB 306271 and eNB 326459) were sites I visited earlier this summer but neither of them were broadcasting the keep PLMN at the time. In fact, Sprint eNB 5762 was completely offline when I visited. I suspected both sites were keep sites based on their location relative to neighboring T-Mobile sites so I was surprised when I didn't spot 312-250 coming from them. Glad to see T-Mobile still kept them. Also T-Mobile isn't done with non-conversion new builds in the city. T-Mobile eNB 894075 is a brand new site added this summer on Rockefeller University's campus in Manhattan. It gives me hope for neighborhoods like Red Hook and Williamsburg that desperately need sites along the waterfront.
    • Nearly every site I encountered in the Bronx was running N41 SA. Consistent pings in the low teens and speeds were actually great. Sprint eNB 9294 got converted but isn't live yet. Location: 40.83091697219704, -73.8178106151994   Sprint eNB unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 310677 Location:40.880070855974395, -73.83644046611454   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894775. Bonus speed test with 2CA and N41 SA. Location: 40.8989406640668, -73.84564472722599   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894854. 40.86220687471859, -73.86242513896488
