Nexus 5 Known Issues

#Nexus5 #GoogleNexus 5 Known Issues and How to Fix Them : The last update Google rolled out for their Nexus 5 devices was Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the update brought some great features with it, but it also had its fair share of bugs and problems. This is the usual case with all Android updates, even if the developers puts the OS through a testing phase, some problems skip by unnoticed. We have compiled a list with the most common Marshmallow problems and provided solutions for them.

Wi-Fi Problems

The last KitKat and Lollipop operating systems also shared these kind of Wi-Fi connectivity problems. In case your Nexus 5 is presenting connectivity errors, you can go ahead and switch the Airplane Mode on and off, reconnect to the Wi-Fi network and also reboot the smartphone and if this does not fix your problem there is still hope. You can go ahead and change the Wi-Fi frequency from automatic to 2.4 GHz or 5GHz and it should be stabilized.

Battery life Drain

This is the most common problem among Nexus 5 owners. This problem can be solved using three methods. The first method implies clearing the app cache, and this is going to delete all the left over data from the Lollipop OS that are probably using the extra life.

To clear the app cache the user has to access Settings-Storage-USB-Cached Data and then just tap OK. If the battery life problem persists the user can go ahead and clear the system cache by doing a Fastboot and entering Recovery Mode. While the Nexus 5 enters Recovery Mode the option to Wipe Cache is going to be available. The last method to solve the problem is to do a complete factory reset.

Bluetooth Problems

This problem can be solved using the same toggle on and off method used for Wi-Fi problems. User feedback has showed us that toggling the Airplane Mode on and off has solved the Bluetooth problem in all cases.
