I have my Nexus 5 last night but when my phone reached 100%, it easily drains the bttery while I'm checking Internet. My phone runs Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. The battery said it only takes 1 hour and 30 minutes of non-stop used. I didn't notice that there is an issue of the phone. Now I disabled Google Fit, then I rebooted after my phone died at less than 10%, then rebooted but the battery life was now 5%, then I turned it off and then reboot again. After that, my phone got only 2%. I charged my phone and it's faster. I also deleted Google+ and Photos.
For all of u,The phone isnt buggy or laggy, u need to download 5.0 factory image from google site cuz ota stopped rolling out and its so easy to install just download Slim sdk and factory image and run flash-all file from bootloader with usb debugging enabled ( go to options , go to about phone , tap build number about 7 times and go back and ull see developers options and enable it ) and youre done just wait to boot and u have 5.0.I have this phone for 6 months and i havent expirienced any issues with battery , camera is good but 8mp limits it , and android 5.0 is the best os for a mobile phone .

Went through the comments/opinions on N5.
I have been using this phone for 6 months now.
ie. From Kitkat 4.4.2 to Lollipop 5.0.1
The experience has just enhanced when ever i get an OS update
And for the people complaining about its battery drain cumon guys this happens with every smartphone.
Long story short the best available smartphone for its price tag 2014
Hi Guys...I recently updated my N5 to 5.0.1 and since then I have been facing the battery draining relatively fast issue. I tried wiping and clearing cache but in vain. Also tried to factory rest but does not work. Can anyone please help me on resolving this issue, thanks in advance!!!
Useless phone, overheats cant open 50% of the apps.
Have only used it for half a year before problems started showing up, (e.g. static image screens during use.)
Would never buy something from Google again.
Got my piece 2 weeks ago ... waiting for the OTA 5.0.1 update... am i the only one with Kit kat 4.4.4 and getting the system update feedback that my device is upto date
ghazala, 29 Dec 2014Battery goes very fast, the phone sound is very low. After Samsung S3 its disappointing.@ ghazala
I have posted this reply several times before because it is a common problem with the N5, but download a WIDGET named 'Volume Control Widget' by Serkun from the Google Play store. Crank all the sliders up to max and the sound is a lot clearer. I don't know why it works and I don't care - it just works!
i just love the phone, it looks awesome, the camera is good but the earlier version was better, sumtimes the camera stops working, but by restarting it, it becomes fine, the battery is fine, the touch is smooth, applications runs very well and gets downloaded in less than a minute. go for it. you will luv the experience.

Anybody facin... moreYeah!!I too have that problem.It takes exactly 6-7hrs to charge fully in 5.0.1.The strange thing is that when it happens my charger adapter does not gets heat and remains cool while charging and when the adapter becomes hot,it charges fast.I had this issue since I updated to lollipop.whether this issue is in adapter or in phone??
Praying that my nexus 5 will come with kitkat out of the box, and if it does I ain't gonna update it until android 5.1 arrives with a hopefully better interface. Fingers crossed......
