Google Nexus 5 Plagued By Problems After Lollipop Update

December 04, 2014

Android 5.0 Lollipop is perhaps among Google's most radical software upgrades that aimed to tweak the performance under the hood, adding new features and overhauling the design language of the user interface.

However, it seems the update, named after a confection, is leaving a bitter aftertaste for a large number of Nexus 5 users who are unhappy with the update. As soon as Google started seeding the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to Nexus 5 phones, users started complaining about software bugs, SMS issues, connectivity problems and reduced battery backup on online forums and social networks.

A number of Nexus 5 users in India who have recently updated their phone's operating system to Lollipop are also reporting problems ranging from less than optimum battery life, system apps crashing, Wi-Fi connectivity issues and the phone getting heated up.

Harsh Garg, a research analyst with McKinsey, is disappointed with his Nexus 5's battery life and stability issues following the Lollipop update. He says he needs to charge the phone twice during a typical work day. His sister, also a Nexus 5 owner and a light user, is also experiencing reduced standby time.
