    As everyone knows the battery life on the N5 has become dreadful. Most people are blaming Lollypop but I'm wondering if it might simply be that the battery is a year old and it's no longer able to hold a charge as well. Has anyone replaced their battery? If so how difficult was the procedure and did it improve the battery life?

    It was easy, just pretend it's a girl and be gentle and take your time with her.

    Hope you bought a $12 battery and not that $50 one in the linked youtube vid It's likely the stock battery with a paper covering...

    Are there any batteries with a higher capacity than the stock battery?

    I have not found any, it would be hard to do without the battery being physically larger. Which would mean you would have to have a larger case back. Speaking of cases there are some cases that have batteries in them and they run in parallel with the phone battery.
