Bug Description

When playing video in OTA-11 and OTA-12 from the browser or one of the Youtube apps from the store, the video framerate is noticeably low and the battery drains tens of percent after only 20-30 minutes. After reloading the same M10 with the latest Android 5 images from BQ, video playback is full speed and does not use a noticeable amount of battery.

Santosh, for me, it was any 1080p video. Compare it to a desktop PC or Andorid device.
