    I have received the android 5.0 update for my UK htc one m8 but I am just holding off on installing until I get enough information that the battery is okay as I am currently happy with my HTC one m8 battery life on 4.4.4. I have heard lollipop runs energy efficient software but to those who have upgraded - how do you find the battery life? ... Do you find it better, worse or the same as current?

    It's been pretty good for me today. I got the update today as well and just jumped straight into it. The battery life has been pretty much near the same but can't really say as I was bored and doing extra video streaming and gaming than usual but still survived the day.

    Anyone notice that the phone is charging slower than before using the original charger?

    I have just installed the update, and man it took over 20% from the battery to complete, you will also notice your M8 to heat-up in the process, which could be the reason for the fast battery drainage. Note that I am only talking about the energy consumption during the update.

    As of the battery life with Lollipop on the M8, I can't give any feedback about that until I use it for at least a couple of days.

    Then power back up.
    That fixed it for me.

    Ive noticed higher battery drain and longer charge time. In a 10 work shift i lose around 30% battery with only 30 min use during lunch. With JB i was only losing around 8%!

    I thought it was very clear the first time.
    I wasn't being sarcastic. I thought maybe you had English as a second language or something.
    I resisted the temptation to ask how old you were that you could't figure out how to power off a phone. That would have been sarcastic.
    I was merely being pedantic.

    (And yes, sometimes it is just as simple as powering off, (not close and restart).

    I have noticed a definite drop in battery life as compared to 4.4.4. It's still ok but not phenomenal like 4.4.4.

    Umm, by JB do you mean JellyBean? What happened to KitKat?!

    Alright, so here is what happened to my M8 (battery wise) after the update to Lollipop.

    Charging time wasn't effected, it remains at the same speed as it was when running KitKat, I am using a charger with a 2Amp output.

    Discharging (battery drainage) on the other hand, was way faster than before, it remains like that for around 3 days, and then it stabilized and got back to the way it was.

    I originally made this post and after reading the replies and other posts about lollipop on M8, I have come to the conclusion that it's still not worth downloading

    From what I have read most battery life results from people show decreased usage times. Also performance issues and lagging as well as some incompatibility and there isn't enough new features to persuade me to get android 5 for this phone in its current form at all. Android 4.4.4 on M8 is flawless. If it's not broke don't fix it

    Yes, the first time was slow... Seems normal now. Boots up a helluva lot faster though... Must have reenabled fast boot.

    My phone is crippled since the update to Lollipop. The battery drains so so quickly that the phone will be at 100% and have powered itself off by 4pm without me even using the phone!

    Wifi and Bluetooth are enabled. But they are alwys enabled, even with the previous KitKat and the phone would last up to 1.5 days !

    I can't see any clear must have advantages to the update either...

    One thing that is way different is if I reboot and then open recent apps there are a ton from my last session still up and running. This includes when I turn off my phone at night and get up in the morning and turn it on, there are 10 - 12 apps up and running that I used the day before. Used to be empty on a power on.

    They aren't actually running. They are just a history of recent tasks. Its just a list.

    If you want to know what is actually running, go to settings / apps / and scroll right to the running screen.

    Nice to know, but they weren't there in KitKat, so it is different.
