@crashdamage:
What about these issues also on "their own" Nexus products? I guess that these devices are not running with TouchWiz or Sense?

@mikeone...I'm not quite sure what point you're making.  I made no claim that Lollipop was perfect on any devices.  Obviously it is not.  I just said that I have not had any problems.  And, in a nutshell, that users wanting faster updates and less bloat would probably be happier with devices running vanilla or nearly vanilla versions of Android.

Anyone who prefers one of the UI overlays is certainly free to buy and use it.  To each his own, Android is all about choice.  But to me such stuff is just unnecessary complication and increased opportunity for problems.

Anyway, this really is kinda off-topic for this forum...

Android since v1.0.  Linux user since 2001.

I just wanted to reply on your following statement:

...
It's too bad Google gets blamed so often for slow updates and allowing this or that with Android.  Google doesn't 'allow' UI overlays such as Touchwiz (aka Touchjizz) and Sense (aka Senseless).  The Android OS is open source and Google can't stop Samsung, HTC, Cyanogenmod or anyone else from doing what they want.  Google can threaten to withhold access to Google Services for leverage, but not much more.
...

Furthermore i only wanted to point out that  even nexus devices running with "pure" Android version 5.0.x obviously have issues.

Up above, I posted two screenshots from an Xperia Z3 Compact (a very recent phone model, too) --

-- which *never* had AquaMail installed, and yet suffers from same "mobile radio active" battery drain, which started once it got the official update to 5.0.2.

This is a device I have here on my desk.

I watched a "Project Volta" video from Google I/O last night... nothing.

The biggest thing is new APIs for letting apps and the system try to use mobile radio and WiFi and wakeups at the same time (to reduce the per-app overhead).

But this thing we're discussing here is something else -- it seems that the system puts the mobile radio into high power mode (when *an* app needs it to transmit data) and then it just stays that way, "stuck" for hours on end.

This issue appears to be randomly all across the board due to Lollipop. My Samsung Galaxy Tab S updated to Lollipop 5.02 last evening. It has been running ever since for almost 24 hours now, and Aquamail does not even show up on the battery usage list.

I have the same exact accounts and I have Aqua check for mail every 15 minutes. The battery usage from Aqua is so negligible that it is not even showing up on the battery usage list.

Wow, I have one of those (SM-T705) and it's easily my favorite tablet.

Didn't know it had Lollipop coming, that's great (knowing Samsung, might take a month or more to reach Russia, but still...)

Mine is the SM-T800. A 32 GB version in Bronze. The Lollipop update is working really well so far. The device is much snappier. Hope you get the update in Russia soon!

A few more from a Samsung device I have on my desk.

Again, note the large disconnect between "wake lock" time and "mobile radio active" time (which Samsung renamed to "total connection time").

Gmail spent only three minutes "really doing stuff" and supposedly kept the radio active for 1.5 hours.

K9 Mail, 13 minutes "doing stuff" and the radio is at 2 hours.

Google Services, under 10 minutes "doing stuff" and radio is at almost 3 hours.
