    It's been great. My nexus 5 isn't my main phone though I use it a lot.
    It's lasted me two days on standby and sot 3 hours. It's about 20%
    It's actually better than how it was on lollipop! Any ideas on how to save more?

    Mine has been great too although it still is a step down from my previous setup (with a custom kernel).

    I've found that lowering brightness can considerably increase SOT.

    Of my five current phones including my fun iP6+, I'm still enjoying my Nexus 5 presently running Lollipop quite nicely. Battery life is excellent, as is speed stability and fun.

    But only run Lollipop if you're experienced with Android. If you're not then use Android 4.4.4

    my battery is the same as on kitkat....awful.

    As we speak I have 81% battery left with 3h 11min on the battery and 22m 48s SOT.

    Battery life seems to be a little better for me on L. Nothing that's going to make or break anything, but it seems to be better.

    And along with Battery Saving mode, I feel a bit more confident with my Nexus 5 now.
