Google initially rolled out Android 5.0 Lollipop to Nexus devices last November 3, but it now seem that Google has pushed back the release date and we’re hearing November 12. According to earlier adopters and preview users, their Nexus 5 device is waking up frequently thus causing the “Miscellaneous” to go on top of the list consuming the battery while the system reports erroneously results which significantly means that there is something that has gone wrong and users doesn’t know what it is. Similar to the screenshot below is what users are seeing on their system with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Based on the latest information we have, Google have already fixed the Wi-Fi bug and is now prepping the build for the rescheduled release. For early adopter, they should have the update ready on November 12 the Nexus 7 device. Other supported devices is expected to come right after.
