Android L will finally fix the pertinent camera bug on the Nexus 5

Nexus 5 camera

Users of the Nexus 5 will be aware of one nagging issue with regards to the camera of the device. This particular bug keeps the camera running in the background, thus leading to unusual drain of battery. And although this bug has been around for a while, Google was never able to fix it. And it seems like Android L could finally bring an end to this.

The issue has been listed in the AOSP bug tracker under future release, which confirms that a permanent fix is on its way with Android L. Google initially claimed that the Skype application was responsible for this particular bug and even suggested customers to uninstall the app so that the issue is resolved. And even though Google was supposed to have it fixed with Android 4.4.3, a large section of users are still seeing the mm-qcamera-daemon process running on the Nexus 5, which is the root cause of the battery drain.

Nexus 5 users who are still suffering from this particular issue will be pleased to know that Android L will finally fix this. Better late than never, right?
