The latest edition of the famed Android software, Android Lollipop, has been made available to the users and the update has been on roll since a week. However, Nexus 5 Android Lollipop Update isn’t up to the expectations.
Nexus 5 Android Lollipop Update Problem No. 1: The Battery Drain
After the update, users have been reporting that battery standby time has reduced greatly. “Earlier I could use my phone for a good 7 hours with 3G on. After the update, this time has reduced by atleast two hours. Seems like Google wants me to switch to Micromax,” says Shokinder, a Delhi based Web Designer.
Nexus 5 was already not a great performer on the battery front and a 5 hour backup has added to its woes.
Nexus 5 Android Lollipop Update Problem No. 2: The Camera App Crash
Instead of simplifying things, the app has become a bit complex with issues. It takes 1-2 seconds more to launch and then when one clicks multiple pictures at a go, it crashes! Also, it is tough to find the brightness increase function now.
Nexus 5 Android Lollipop Update Problem No. 3: The Heat Is On
If you use the phone with the current update for half an hour and say you play a heavy game or watch YouTube videos, you will experience good amount of heating that may lead to app crash as well. “Online gaming is a pain now. The phone heats up and the battery drains like anything,” says Bishwa, a Bhubhaneshwar based Surgeon.
Nexus 5 Android Lollipop Update Problem No. 4: Connectivity Issues
Users have also said that voice calling is not as good as it used to be. The person on the other end cannot hear the sound properly. This is not the problem all the times but sometimes this problem does occur. Voice calling is the bassic feature for which a phone is build for. Google should have done thorough testing beforehand. I hope this issue is removed in a future update.
Nexus 5 Android Lollipop Update Problem No. 5: Auto Sync of the Outlook App With Gmail
If your office email id is synced with your Nexus 5 smartphone and you proceeded with Lollipo update, you will be surpised to see that you cannot access the app from the default Outlook Email app option. The only way to access the office email now is through Gmail. Lollipop synchronises it with the Gmail on its own. The above issue does have a solution and one can separate the Outlook and Gmail. This, I will cover in one of my upcoming posts.
