    Question Nexus 5 users here?

    Just got a Nexus 5 after i smashed the screen on my Galaxy s4.

    I had a Nexus 4 before the Samsung and it was one of the best phones i've had, but sufferd from poor battery life.

    The Samsung battery was not too bad, but the Nexus 5 seems quite thirsty.

    I am running the stock OS and it's Android 5.0.

    Anyone using a decent image with great battery performance?

    Was it a brand new nexus 5, refurb or second hand? Mine lasts more than a day under normal usage. If it's a refurb or second hand maybe the battery was duff (still could be the case if it's brand new).

    Same as beerman, mine lasts over a day with normal use.

    The 5.0.1 lollipop udates are out for nexus 4 and 6 but not 5 yet.. maybe there are issues causing battery drain that still need sorted

    Cheers for replies guys.

    It's a mint Nexus 5 from ebay. I will have a play with it. Already got the screen very low as it's simply to bright for me.

    Well phone seems to have calmed down now. Getting full day easy enough with heavy use.

    Just to say the same thing really, I've got a Nexus 5 and noticed that in the first few days after getting it, the battery wasn't great but settled down. Maybe I was using it more than I thought, it was doing set-up stuff in the background or it was a placebo effect, and I noticed the same thing after upgrading to Lollipop. In any event I easily get a day out of it.

    I used to have multirom on my 5. Give that a go first, you can try most ROMs without wiping each time.
