One of our readers explained, “I’m facing many problems with the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update and hope Android L sorts these issues as soon as possible. On some days my phone won’t die all day after a full charge, then on others it will drain within 4 hours. The only solution I found was to pay for an external wireless charger dock, so my phone keeps charged everywhere I go”.
Another explains, “My Wi-Fi is locked into the off position and I don’t know how to fix it. I’m also seeing bad battery life and keyboard lag”. We’ve seen a number of other Nexus 5 issues being reported in forums with 3G/WiFi connectivity, random reboots, and lagging being the most common.
