Nexus 5 and Android M are Amazingly Compatible, Improves Battery Time and More
Nexus 5 was updated with Android M to check its performance and new features such as the Doze and the app standby mode coming out with android M.
Let’s start with Doze, this feature is activated when your smartphone remains inactive for a certain period of time. Your phone goes in a sleeping mode, not just the little naps but a deeper one which we usually experience after the intake of sleeping pills.
Your phone’s standby times increases nearly twice than the usual. The doze feature is disabled when you pick up your phone or when it syncs and new tasks are opened which were earlier halted by your device.
The App Standby, once activated, prohibits all apps that are deemed to be inactive from receiving any kind of network support. It is activated when your phone is unplugged, all syncs and app jobs are also postponed. The mode is deactivated once you plug your device in. However, the new android might present a disabling option for the apps that need to run at all times.
The Nexus 5 was updated with Android M and then compared with the same model having Android 5.1.1, the results were outstanding. Nexus 5 with Android M consumed 1.5% of battery on standby mode for 8 hours whereas Android 5.1.1 exhausted 4% of battery under the same circumstances.
After one day i.e. 24 hours Android M used 4.5% of the battery while Android 5.1.1 drained 12% of standby mode. When tested for 48 hours on standby mode, Nexus 5 powered by Android M used 9% of the battery whereas Android 5.1.1 burned 24% of the battery.
Android M nearly doubled (2.7 times) the standby time compared to Android 5.1.1 currently available i.e. it jumped from 200 hours to 533 hours on standby.
