I have Nexus 5 on Android Lollipop. When I check the battery graph, it always shows my WiFi radio as ON, even when I am using 3G and have specifically turned it off. I have observed that it only shuts off in airplane mode.

Wi-fi was turned off during this whole time period

How to correct this behavior?

  • @Megatron Actually Lollipop devices consume more battery than the Kitkat version does. And mostly lollipop users of nexus 5 complaining about Wifi radio problem. See the XDA post for a detailed review on this and google forums post some fixes provided there you can try.

I have a nexus 5 and had the same problem. I found an app called Power Toggles and it seemed to do the trick.

    It would help more if you consider to add a link for the said app. Please do so.
