There's some kind of a bug in Android 5 on Nexus 5. I was trying to backup everything last night and that was a painful experience. Basically, storage kept failing. Rebooting the device and reconnecting to my laptop would fix the problem momentarily. That was last night, and the backup was successful.

This morning, my Nexus 5 was acting sluggish. Then HERE Maps would not launch. Then the device said there is no SD card (WTF?). So I reboot and that wiped all app data.

All podcasts... gone.
All photos... gone.
All audiobooks... gone.
Offline maps for HERE Maps and TomTom... gone.

But every app is still installed.

No big loss; I had created a backup of everything last night. Anyways. I'm going to wipe the device and start fresh.

After flashing with factory image (it was running stock ROM, but whatever) and installing the apps I need, it seems to be running faster. It also boots faster. I have not enabled full-drive encryption yet; it was enabled before I wiped the device.

After having used Android 5 on my Nexus 5 for a few days, my impression is that the UI is much more snappier.

With Android 5, some apps I used regularly got Sherlocked...
- Skiplock... now built right into Android (trusted devices)
- Lux... the new auto-brightness algorithm works well
- ACDisplay... new lock screen shows all my notifications

Apps that survived...
- Cal... I can't use the stock calendar app; it needs a lot of work
- Authy... better than Google Authenticator and I don't know what Google can do about it
- HERE Maps and TomTom... offline navigation (not just offline maps)
- Textra SMS... I can haz dark/black theme for SMS app?

Apps on the rope...
- Pedometer... good chance that Google Fit will replace this
- Shush... this may be on the way out with priority notifications

Testing macro extension tube. Because I do not have enough uses for a dedicated macro lens to justify buying one.
