Two battery problems with Nexus 4 on Lollipop. First of al the unexplained Google+ drain is back that has been seen in earlier versions when the app is never opened. But this is new: phone lost 40% of charge when switched off.

Had some problems with my domain email forwarding to Gmail. It appears Google now has much tighter spam filters for forwarded mail and bounces anything it thinks is spam. This caused quite a few false positives. If you have a similar set-up I recommend setting Gmail to pull email in using POP3 instead.
