Discovered by developers recently, there is a battery draining bug in Android Lollipop.
On Monday, November 3, 2014, Google had announced that it would begin the global roll-out of its latest operating software Android Lollipop. However, since then, there has been a lot of talk about the delay in the over-the-air (OTA) update of Lollipop. Yesterday, Google announced that it had found an “outstanding bug” that has resulted in them pushing the roll out to November 12, 2014, when the Nexus 6 will be available to users in the US.
Several Nexus 5 users who are running the developer version of the Android Lollipop reported that their battery was draining at a steady rate when the Wi-Fi was turned on. This was reported on the developer preview site. This might just be the bug that Google was referring to, when they delayed the global roll out.
Android 5.0 Lollipop was supposed to be released for the Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10, but this will now be delayed. While most users would be glad that they did not receive an update that had a bug, there are several others who are quite upset with the mismanagement of the whole situation by Google. Some users feel that Google jumped the gun on the announcement.
Google Nexus 6 will release in the US on November 12, 2014 and will have the Android Lollipop preloaded on it. Without contract, the Nexus 6 will retail for $649, making it the most expensive Nexus device to date.
