I would give it a few days. The update just came out today. I'm a little worried about this myself because I was getting 7 hours of usage and 2 days of standby time before the update, and I don't want to get less now after this update. I'm going to take a wait and see approach and hope for the best.

Since charging upgrading last night and not charging all night with regular usage, I think mine may have gotten a tiny bit better. And I realize it's a bit soon to say, those just seem to be my initial observations. My battery life with 5.0 was never bad to begin with though.

If your battery seems to be draining faster after update go back in & check your settings - The update turned on the siri lift to talk & auto time zone settings again on my phone - Shut them back off & battery is back to where it was pre update - I don't think this update did anything other than plug the security hole

Battery life is def. better on mine... Starting @ 100% this morning around 7am I am down to about 93% with about a 45 minutes of music playback and a whole bunch of web surfing etc... Yesterday before the update I was at about 75 / 80% at this time.
I'll keep my eye on it over the next few days - standby is def. easier on the battery than before though.

So far seems to be better for me. It was already great before 5.01 and now seems to be better. My wife says her's is much better, she's been using it all morning and it's only at 92% now. I used mine since yesterday when I updated till midnight, so about 8 hours, and then left it on my desk (not recharging) and it's at 72%.
I also recommend draining the battery completely, where the iPhone shuts off, then recharging. I did that on 5.0 and it helped a lot.iPhone 4S 16GB (Black) | iPhone 4 16GB (Black) | iPhone 3GS 16GB (Black) | iPod Touch 4G (2010)| MacBook 13" Spring 2011 | iPad 3rd Gen (Black)

I charged my 4s battery to 100% before I went to bed last night. Unplugged from charging at 12:30 a.m. By 8:00 this morning the battery had gone down to 76%. Checked the usage and it showed 6 hours 3 minutes, standby 9 hours 37 minutes. The only thing that is turned on is push email, and I had received 8 emails overnight. I had also closed all apps from the tray, even though I know that they shouldn't affect anything and are not active unless I am actually using them. I am not an iPhone newbie by any stretch of the imagination. Upgrading to 5.0.1 has decidedly NOT been a good thing for me. This is now effectively as bad or worse than my 3g and nowhere near as good as my iPhone 4.
