    My wifi is WAY better than with KitKat. Battery life seems slightly worse, but not dramatically different.

    The experience seems highly dependent on the apps you have installed and whether those apps have updated for Lollipop. Essentially all of mine have, and battery life is much better than with KitKat. WiFi has been better too.

    No real issues for me. Battery is far better apart from when using a tracking app which drains the battery at an insane rate compared to when running on KitKat.

    my battery is definitely worse. dont know what to attribute that to though. It could be that the apps i have installed are unoptimized for lollipop. But so far, not too impressed.

    Disable Google Fit. As soon as I had that enabled I was getting massive battery drain.

    Honestly if you did an OTA update wipe factory reset the phone much better. Buy yes google fit eats battery because of location tracking (I wish you could have the step counter on without the location)

    Was it dramatically better after factory reset? Seems like some are saying it really helped and others say it didn't.

    I found it better. Although i find after a factory reset it takes a few days for google services to stop killing the battery but after that I been getting good battery life

    Do you mean that you were actually using the app, or just that it was sitting unused but enabled in your app tray?

    +1 on Factory reset after the upgrade. Battery performance has definitely improved.

    Flashed Lollipop onto my Nexus 5, no issues at all. It is running smoother than ever.

    Battery life is better.
    Android services using less power.
    I miss the Combined Inbox feature with stock email gone.
    I thought I would miss the widgets on my Lockscreen (I used Email widget),
    but now I am liking the Alerts better. Many apps need to have Alerts turned ON.

    Everything running just fine on my nexus 5 since the ota update. Seems to run smoother and faster, and battery is better.

    My nexus 5 is running great. The first couple of days on lollipop the battery wasn't good but it seems to have settled and it is better than on KitKat now.

    Me too the first two nights was not that great. Rebooted a dozen times and ran the cache wipe. I then disabled Google Fit and it is better yesterday and today. Don't know if it makes a difference but I will never use Fit. The app does nothing anyway you open it and it just runs a setup wizard then says it can't find something and quits. Plus I don't excersise so I can care less about fitness apps.

    On someone's suggestion out here I tried doing factory reset and voila it seems the phone's definitely much better in terms of battery life (only 1% battery use over night keeping wifi and data off) that's bravo! and certainly to some extent much better wifi reception. I would definitely suggest anyone who were facing issues similar to mine shall try the factory reset.

    Better WiFi but my battery life is worse with lollipop. I did a factory reset after the ota but the battery life is still poor.

    My SOT has gone up about 10% but the biggest improvement is standby time. WiFi is fine with no problems.

    I agree SOT is terrible if I wake the screen up and load one website I can see the battery go down but standby time is about the same.

    My Nexus 5 is completely hosed after the update. I have no wifi,and cannot turn it on. My phone goes into an endless Android reboot loop whenever it tries to sleep, which heats up my phone and drains the battery rapidly if I don't interrupt it. It does this in safe mode too. I've found others online with the exact same problem - waiting for google to give a crap...
