    Check your battery stats--is Cell Standby eating up a lot of battery?

    It guesstimates the time left based on what you are doing at that moment. I think the Lollipop battery app is going to take a lot of us time to get used to.

    Mine has said I had 3 hours left, then I put it down and picked it up a couple of hours later and it told me I had 2 days left.

    Yeah, it tries to estimate on what you have been doing for the last certain amount of time. I don't know how often it calculates.

    If you are not familiar with this lollipop, it bases on how you use the phone. So if you were at idle, it will show you have days left, if you just used it for games it will base it off of that and say you got 2 hours left something like that

    Sadly you really can't rely on this new predictive battery graph IMO. It's going to be all over the place as it tries to predict what's left based on how you're using the phone. Not sure exactly what Google was thinking here because I think we could do a better job individually predicting battery life just based on watching or being aware of the battery left percentage in the notification bar!
    Agree . . its stupid. One would think that most users who visit the battery stats pages are looking for reasons WHY the battery life is so low and want to know what applications/usage patterns are causing it. Arguably the information is still there yes but the layout of the graph condenses it making it more difficult to read changes in wake state and signal strength etc. IMO prediction based on past use is less useful since if you're trying to stretch things out your usage is going to change in the future and the prediction based on the past will therefore not be accurate.

    On the opposite side of the coin is the fact that many of us that use Android devices for work and serious play want to know how the battery is going to hold up over the continued present use by the user. So the predictive nature of the Lollipop battery gauge is far more helpful than the older model in KitKat for example.
    IMO The option to select one or the other battery monitor algorithms may well be an option we should suggest to Google for the next iteration of the Android OS.

    soooo, I got my update for tmobile..not bad but... I kept getting a notification to update my Amazon app...and when I do it says that I have to log in to the app..what? and when I try to, since I didn't activate "allow 3rd party apps" then it gave me a warning. I never installed amazon app from the internet, I did it from the Play Store. I had to delete the app, and re install from Play store...now I wonder..was that a fake or a virus? yikes! anyone?
