Android M is only available as a preview for the time being and initial impressions are fairly positive, if word around the internet is anything to go by. It is being said that the Nexus 5 with Android M running on board is seeing substantially improved standby times compared to Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is excellent news for customers who are expecting to see the update later this year.
This is thanks largely due to the Doze feature that is built within Android M, which puts the device into a deeper state of sleep or standby when not in use for a prolonged period of time. When this was compared with the Android 5.1.1 running Nexus 5, it was seen that the Android M model only saw a dip in battery life of 1.5% after 8 hours, while the Lollipop toting Nexus 5 saw a drop of 4%.
At 24 hours, Android M saw a decrease of 4.5% while the Nexus 5 with Android 5.1.1 saw a battery percentage reduction of 12%. This gives us a very good idea of the work done by Google with regards to the battery life of the new operating system. It will be interesting to see how manufacturers leverage this feature and use it to their advantage.
