I just got the Nexus 5 couple of days back and now I'm seeing a strange issue, Every day randomly the phone sensors get stuck, ie., the screen rotation stops, compass stops moving and the barometer app shows showing pressure readings. If I'll reboot the phone everything starts working till the next time this happens.
I've tried factory reset, safe mode but nothing helps. I used the S tools+ app and when I select individual sensors it shows status as waiting for sensor to get ready.
Any ideas?

Your barometer app is crashing your sensors. I can't find the threads right now because I'm mobile, but there are a handful on this topic.

Just a basic thought from an accessory addict... Are there a screen protector on? Any cases with a magnetic flap or kickstand?

I know my Seidio case for my HTC One would royally mess up the compass, and navigation for me because of the magnetic kickstand.

No screen protector, still have the same cover with nexus5 logo what comes with new phone, no cases with magnetic flap but yes I'm using a non-nexus Qi charger with built in battery.

I'll uninstall the barometer app and check again.

[edit] found the bug listed here...

Thanks for replying.
