    I had the same problem as you!

    Then I downloaded the "Easy Battery Saver"-app and it significantly improved my battery life. A few weeks ago thay rolled out a big update with awesome new features. You should try it out!

    I just bought a nexus 5 and was a little worried about battery life from the reviews. Now I don't know what the fuss is about. I'm at 30% after 24 hrs. it sits overnight, it only consumes about 5%. Better than my Galaxy S3.
    My only special app to manage it is WiFi Matic.

    Hope this could help the person who have the same issue with battery of Nexus 5. Today, I get a power off in the noon because of battery dead. Then I charge the phone to about 50% battery level. And then I went out with it. Around 5 PM, I get another power off because of the battery dead. At this time, I use my wireless charger to charge it. At the very beginning of my charging, I got another power off because the use of the phone. Then I did not touch it until the battery level got to 20%. I took it home and use the original charger to charge it to 100% percent. Then miracle happened and the battery usage changed to normal and no more battery drain. Hope this could provide some ideas.

    I honestly think the issue is that with a 2300 mAh battery and the usual set of Android apps installed (lots of which stay in the running area), the battery can be depleted very quickly. And if you use any push mail, like the stock mail app with Exchange, you'll see the battery drop extremely quickly. I have my screen set at 1-5% brightness and I still can't get a full day's usage out of the phone without recharging. I am guessing that Facebook has also made this impossible, along with its requirement to have Messenger and those damn bubble heads roaming wild. The foolishness about the 3000 mAh batteries in the new phones is that they run at an insanely high and needless resolution above 1920x1080, which means the battery benefit you might have gained is no longer a true gain. The One M8 is a negligible increase in power and the G3, which still seems unavailable, looks like it will feature the same or worse battery suck with the ultra high resolution screen.

    It can't be Exchange. I have EAS on Nine email, on push, constantly running, and I easily get a day. I use no power conservation methods at all. I suspect the culprit in your case is Facebook, which I gleefully uninstalled.

    Yeah... i no longer have good battery i look at my friends brand new nexus then my 3 month old nexus, his one works amazing with battery life. i know google has a non removable battery but you just need to unscrew a few things to get the battery life, anyone know a battery to put in the nexus 5 that wont burn out my phone? Also a question out of the blue but if you factory reset and re download clash of clans will it save ur progress

    I found that smart lock was making my battery drain when idle. I was rebooting my device nearly every day but it would suddenly start to drain faster. I turned it off and now my battery life is better. I did not have to reboot it for a week and only did to apply the 5.1 update.

    I carry a small power pack in my possibles bag and I'm surprised at how quickly it recharges my phone.

    Where it remembers your location, your address so you don't have to input a lock code while at home.

    Yeah I see some bad battery life myself now. Even with maybe 40 minutes viber calls, a few emails and messaging with phone calls not totalling 40 minutes either my phone tops out at around 8 hours. Maybe the battery is deteriorating or some apps are really draining the battery. But in all fairness I haven't installed an awful lot of apps in the meantime.

    I'm using not the original charger but have been doing so for many months. So I don't think it's that. I hope that Lollipop 5.1 will improve things a bit. I think that this memory leak issue burns through some battery too, but not entire sure how. So for now I'm trying to find wall plugs everywhere to charge my phone. This however is not always convenient and I'd expect a smartphone to at least last for a day.

    This phones battery is pretty bad, even on 5.1. I love the build of this phone, it runs great and does everything nicely...but the battery is very frustrating, i have to charge it twice a day and its mostly on idle. While its a great phone, i cant wait to upgrade to a phone with better battery and camera.

    I was going to say pretty much the same thing. So many things to love about my N5 but the battery and speaker are just plain horrible. Those will be two very important things when I choose my next phone.

    My Facebook app is fine...as mentioned by LeoRex and everything he is saying, its a smaller battery. While all of us have slightly different battery performances, the truth is the small battery is not meant for consumption.

    My nexus 5 can go around 16 hours without charging, that's on idle with a few texts. I've had it go longer at times, and shorter but that's the avg. That's with brightness at 10%, Bluetooth on, WiFi on, location battery saving on. The suggestions such as shut off LTE only use 3G or any other "workaround" is unfair...I don't know that's how I see it. This is the same BS I dealt with on WP, spent a year fighting the OS trying to find all its quibbles and annoyances...it drove me crazy so I had to start sacrificing things I used.

    Nexus 5 is an excellent mid range phone with a small battery. That's pretty much it.

    You have bluetooth on that's your problem. Turn it off and leave it off. I now hook up all my bluetooth speakers wired auxiliary jack.

    I have a moto 360, need Bluetooth on. Even with Bluetooth off (used it with BT off 100% for 6 months) I didn't notice much of a difference honestly.

    AUTHORIZED RESELLER
    https://lg.encompass.com/item/103895...ithium_Polymer

    They are in Atlanta, right next to the LG distribution center. You can get a factory original battery, for they are the only reseller that I know of? It took forever to find this info, so if you need an OEM battery, call or email.
