Google Nexus 5 Battery Drain Issue on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop SolvedRead more:

Since the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, there have been a number of bugs and issues that have been presented on the Google Nexus 5.

Google Nexus 5 owners have complained about various bugs involving WiFi connections, network connections, unauthorized restarts and faulty performance. These problems were addressed in the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update for the Nexus 5, but a lot of users are still sending in reports of serious problems such as an issue with battery life. Nexus 5 battery drain on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop can be caused by third party apps lacking the proper updates. One solution for this is to start your device in safe mode and check to see if the battery drain issue persists any further. If this doesn’t work, then it is advised to sort through your third party apps one at a time and find which ones may be causing the underlying problem. Monitoring your app by checking your battery information section in your nexus 5’s settings can also help you see which apps is using the most power from your battery life. Another reason for any battery drain issues could be the software itself, in this case there isn’t anything you can really do.
It is quite surprising though that after most of these problems were resolved with the Android 5.0.1 update, people are still experiencing battery drain, failed connections, app crashes and random reboots with their Nexus 5 devices. The battery drain problem isn’t as common as the latter however, as many users have been reporting. As soon as the lockscreen is activated on an owners Nexus 5, the handheld restarts without warning. The same problem occurs when the phone is locked manually or goes idle by itself as well. There still hasn’t been an official fix to this problem, but one noted solution for battery drain and restarting issues on the Nexus 5 is a clean manual install. If Android 5.0.1 was installed automatically, your system may have been unknowingly susceptible to corruption. The best solution would be a manual installation of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. To do this owners will have to root their Nexus 5 and perform the update manually, which is strongly advised against considering you will be voiding any warranty on your device or crash the phone entirely.
