Nexus 5 Android 6.0.1 Update: 5 Things to Know in April



5 / 5

What's Next

What's Next

If you're dealing with Nexus 5 Android 6.0.1 problems and you can't find a fix, you're probably hoping for an Android 6.0.2 update from Google. 

Unfortunately, we still haven't heard anything about Android 6.0.2 or any other big bug fix updates for the Nexus 5.

Unfortunately, we don't know what's next for the Nexus 5. There's no Nexus 5 Android N Developer Preview and the sighting in the code repository doesn't guarantee a public release for the aging former flagship. Nothing is confirmed. 

There's a chance the Nexus 5's next update could be its May security update. So, if you are running into issues with your Android 6.0.1 build, you'll need to be extremely proactive. There's no guarantee next month's update will come with fixes for your device's Android 6.0.1 issues. 

For more on Android N, please take a look at our comparison to Android Marshmallow.

    Ever since I updated my Nexus 5 to 6.0.1 I’m experiencing a problem with my Bluetooth showing on top of the list of the apps draining my battery. Even more than my Screen! Now I have to switch off Bluetooth when I am not using it, which is something I never had to do before. It’s quite annoying. I’ve had my Nexus 5 since the phone was launched two years ago.

    I bought nexus 5 in nov 2013.Recently updated with latest 6.0.1.
    Now days this device getting me nervous as anytime it got hanged and when restart shows 2-5% battery.
    How? I was using camera, clicked some pics , phone got hanged and power off automatically when i restarted it shown me 2% battery.i came back home when i put phone in charge in 10 min it shows me same % battery which was before switch off. Means 53%. I checked it many time. I am facing this problem from last 10 days. I am afraid to carry my phone as it can switch of any time and you are helpless untill u connect it with charger.Google Android teM , pls do something.

      I have pretty much the same problem. Did you ever find anything about it? My battery usage graphs look like the grand canyon. Slow reduction then, all of a sudden, drop to zero when phone crashes. Hook it to a charger, restart it, and it jumps right back to the charge it had before the crash.

      I forgot to mention. I carry one of those power bank charge devices so I can restart the phone even when I am away from home. Something like this:

    Well from what tested the only problem I experienced with marshmallow (6.0.1) is a few fc menu a day like 3 . seems to me that Nexus phones are the problem .

    My only complaint since the latest update is I and no longer control my bluetooth enabled devices volume by using the left side up/down control.

    Nancy, no you can’t fully view groups in Contacts any longer. Lame? Absolutely! Some groups show “no contacts found” another shows 25 of the 138 I have in a particular group. I used the group function daily, multiple times for my business and truly need it back. Google doesn’t seem to care. Many have requested that Google fix this, but it’s fallen on deaf ears. The irony is someone got paid to take away a valuable feature!

      When you connect the phone click the USB notification on your device and choose from the different options. By default it just charges.

    Last week my nexus 5 did the newest update… Well today, my phone turned itself off and is not turning back on. Last week I noticed the battery life was going faster than normal. I tried everything possible to make sure my nexus retained battery life but nothing seemed to work. Pissed!

    Same here, my phone shuts off at random, battery all of a sudden goes dead, wake it up and it shows no battery life left and then shuts off again. The battery graph shows a deep crater as it indicates it suddenly discharged. All since the 6.0.1 update. I want to go back and then never want to upgrade again!! How do you do this???

    Will there be any more updates for the Nexus 5 after 6.0.1? I don’t think I will upgrade unless they clear up these issues

    07/19/2016 at 4:58 pm

    Every since the update, I’ve been having issues connecting to WiFi. Has anyone else had this problem? I can’t find a solution that works. Any feedback is great appreciated. Thanks!

    Sound and battery have been affected on both my husbands and my nexus 5 due to very recent upgrade. On phone calls we can barely hear people speaking at the other end!!

    Phone calls dropped, can’t hear someone on other side, garbled sounds only. On our Nexus 5 phones.
