Disabled Google voice from my Sprint account this evening in preparation of transferring to a Nexus 5. Regular voicemail seems so primitive, doesn't it?

Anyone else having battery issues in the last few days with the Nexus 5? Both my wife and I have noticed a significant drain. Thinking it may be related to the most recent Google Search update. Thanks.

A hidden gem in the Kentlands. Skip the desserts and go for the Indian food. Butter Chicken is so good and inexpensive!
