Does anyone here have a Nexus 5 running 6.0?

    If so, what kind of sot are you getting on a typical day? Did it increase from 5.0?

    I have one as a second backup so not used daily (my son uses it for Audiobooks in Airplane mode these days).

    However, when I did test it, it maybe stretched things by an extra 30 minutes (up to 3 to 3.5 hours). The biggest gain was Doze cutting idle drain so it was more obvious that the phone gets a similar SOT over a longer period.

    I think the battery is pretty old but I've little reason to change it. MM certainly runs well enough on the hardware.

    I've had my Nexus 5 since it's release. It's been amazing. Used it heavily for an entire year as my primary smartphone. At the time Android 4.4.4 was my favorite version. One month after the Nexus 6 was released I took delivery of mine.

    Kept the Nexus 5 as a backup since it was too good to sell. Also kept Android updated on it. Upon the release and arrival of my Nexus 6P I decided to keep the Nexus 6 because it too, was excellent and I learned that 6.0" is the perfect display size for the way I use my smartphone.

    Currently I've spent some time with my Nexus 5 since upgrading to ver 6 of Android. Other than being a bit small, I'm very pleased to say that battery life is about 10% to 15% better. An amazing experience considering its age.

    Now that all three Nexus models are running ver 6, I couldn't be more satisfied. My iPhone 6S Plus isn't bad, but most definitely not as smooth and lag free as its Nexus counterparts.

    Thanks for the replies. I came across two Nexus 5's on amazon for $49 each so I bought them, for that price I couldnt pass them up

    That's a great deal, OP. Were they brand new?

    I've read Doze really does help battery life. On MIUI, we already have similar features and no wakelocks. There is also an app called All-In-One Toolbox that prevents apps from starting up when it gets first turned on. I use that along with Greenify, so I don't really need Doze. My standby is usually great. Glad to hear Doze is helping out Nexus 5 with stamina. For $49 each, it is a great deal either way.
