For those people who use port covers for their pin connector and headphone jack, do you find your iPhone on beta 4 syncing every time it's near a wifi network? Just pointing that out because my device does that even when not actually charging...
By the way, geekwithswag's take on the latest beta has been pretty accurate with my own experience so far.

Thanks for letting me know guys. Yeah I may have to do a clean install, because I installed 4.3.3 for about a week, jailbroke it, and then restored from a backup for iOS 5 b4. That might be affecting the battery in some way.
Either way, everything else is working very well.

I still have the issue where it tries to sync my pictures and iTunes crashes. Now it won't sync over WIFI anymore. I reinstalled iTunes and get the same result.
Edit: Did a hard reset and stopped it from syncing photos and all is well with the WIFI sync.

I just spoke with my coworker and he told me he had the same issue with the battery since the update. he used his phone for about 20mins and then his phone shut off after 4-5 hours of being in his pocket and his phone was burning up. This is the same issue i am having.
We have also noticed that imessage isnt working between our phones. not sure if it is all imessage or what.. kinda annoying .

I just discovered an issue with custom text tones. If I change the default (tritone) to one that I have added to the phone (the old BlackBerry cricket chirp), it's plays the marimba phone ringtone. If I use a stock tone for text, it plays the correct tone.
Can anyone else confirm this? It worked perfectly in beta 3.

I didnt have this issue with mine. I did notice it went to the default tri tone after the restore but once i changed it to my *simple* facebook chat sound it has worked perfect.
I have had nothing but serious problems with my battery and my coworkers battery since this update and also imessage not working. he suggested we turn off imessage and see how the battery holds up . so ill keep you all posted on my findings

I've got some messaging bugs, but I don't think it's actually affecting my messages. I get some progress bars at the top of the screen that are reluctant to go away sometimes. Other than that, I think my messages app is okay.
My battery life is pretty awesome. No crazy drain that I was getting on other betas. Apps that access the camera are still buggy, but I suspect that is an API problem rather than an OS problem.
I think this is the first beta that is stable enough to be my daily driver

I hate to fill this post with so many updates, but now that I've had a normal work day, I realize that the battery is definitely up to par. It's just as great now as it was in 4.3.x, if not better.
What was draining my battery quickly before was either constantly streaming Spotify music or iMessage. So, it may be heavy-usage or it may be an iMessage bug - I'll find out soon enough.
One last thing (bug): Apps that with articles (like Engadget or Cracked) that have linked sources crash. In other words, clicking on links that would lead to sources crashes the app.
