    This is my first time posting on the forums, and I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but I was wondering if Marshmallow is stable on the Nexus 5. I just pick up a used one online and it is on 5.1.1. Would it be worth it to upgrade to Marshmallow; or should I wait for a few bugs to be squashed? Thanks in advance!

    The only issue I've noticed is that sometimes after hanging up a call, the screen doesn't automatically come back on. I have to press the Power button a couple of times, and then it comes on. Fairly minor--the improvement in overall performance and standby battery life outweighs this issue, in my opinion.

    Yes I've had this issue as well on quite a few calls.
    Other than this, I can't really think of other bugs/issues. Everything is smooth and working fine for me.

    Works fine for me. I don't have the phone issue because I'm deaf and don't use the phone.

    Works great for me. I just got mine, and installed Marshmallow clean. No real problems so far.

    I've noticed no problems, apart from false reporting of wifi battery use in the stock battery usage monitor. So far as I can tell, it's harmless and I assume will be fixed in a future update.

    No you can update anytime as it is working fine and even batter drain problem is resolved a bit!

    I updated my Nexus 5 as soon as the new version came out and I have not noticed any issues. Actually, I noticed that my battery drains a lot less quicker, which is a good thing, right?

    I've had no problems so far, installed about a month ago including security updates and all is fine!

    You guys are lucky.

    My nexus 5 is hardly usable. I have not been able to connect to WiFi since updating, the drop down menu is all sorts of bugged, and the phone will reboot over and over again until there is a stable battery level. That is somewhere around 50%.

    I've done most of the standard troubleshooting up to a factory reboot.

    As for your question. I think you are good. I've yet to see anyone online with my issues :/

    GPS on mine has been poor since Marshmallow. It positions me many meters from where i actually am and frequently loses gps lock.
