    Shutting off background data for the google service seem to help on my z1, instead of draining 25% it now around 2% per charge with stamina mode enabled.

    had a similar problem in my nvidia shield tablet
    5.0 worked fine but 5.0.1 (or something) had that issue i think it was related with background data like angershark said, i turned of sync and location and improved alot.
    Nvidia fixed that a few weeks later tough.

    In my nexus 5 never had issues, well.. except a rare random reboot when i got it (2013) and it was in kitkat, tbh never bothered me and its gone now.
    Overall every android version keeps getting better (currently on 5.1.1 on nexus 5)

    i mess around alot with nexus 7 and nexus 7 (2013) too, they are both great.

    imho nothing beats a good combination of good hardware (Asus/LG) and good software support (google)

    No problems at all here on my Nexus 7 with 5.1.1 (or maybe it's 5.1.2, whatever the latest one is).

    Nah, 5.1.1 is beautiful again. 5.0.2 was bad, though... Luckily I wasn't on it long.

    No problems here, using the latest 5.02 on Sony Xperia Z3. Getting 2-3 days battery with heavy use...
