I'm in Canada, and my Nexus 5 purchased from Google Play store is now updating to 5.1 OTA right now. Just got the notification of the 5.1 update being available a few minutes ago.

Expecting 'can't connect to camera', 'flashlight' bug to be fixed and of course a better battery life in nexus 5

My nexus 5 has given me crappy battery life since I upgraded to 5.0, I hope they make some significant improvement in that regard.

Well I can confirm this. the phone feels much faster and the animations works butter smooth. the battry life has a noticeable impact. I normally watch TV series on my way to work in MX Player with full brightness. thats normally a 1 hour drive and I finish an episode every drive. say 45 mins. before the battery would drain to around 83%-85% for the last few days on 5.1 its 90%-93%. Extremely satisfied
