My husband has the 4 on iOS5, and he gets better battery life than I do. So go figure lol.
I can say I'm very happy with the battery life I do get

I don't think closing running normal apps will improve battery life that much. GPS apps, music streaming apps, etc obviously use battery but your average apps are just sitting there idle.
Plus, you are supposed to enjoy your phone and live your life, not obsess over closing out apps all of the time.

Over the past few nights, I've been rather upset over my 4s. What i usually do is charge my phone up while we're watching tv at night, and then when I go to bed, I take my iPhone with me and watch a video on hulu+ or netflix while falling asleep. Typically, when I"m done watching said shows, the battery will be at 93-95% after one sitcom of 23 minutes or so.
Since Monday of this week, when I wake up in the morning, my battery has shot down to 65-70%. Thats after sitting idle all night, from 95% down to 65%.
Last night, I even made sure that when I set my phone down, I closed all applications. The only thing I didn't do was unplug my headphones.
About a week ago, I had finally downloaded the first Infinity Blade game, and noticed it was sucking me dry as well, but that's to be expected. I finally, last night before bed, deleted the game from my phone, thinking it may have a snag in it. That's the only thing I've downloaded recently.
But to no avail, this morning, after closing all apps, and deleting the Infinity Blade app, I woke up with a dismal 70% left. I had a 3gs for 2 years, and even the last day I used it I would wake up with 95%.
My wife also has said hers has been getting abysmal battery life.
Any ideas? I've got most of the things turned off that we're supposed to turn off to make for better battery life, but it still is just awful!. I woke up at 7:30, its now 11:30, and I haven't used my phone at all except to check email, and its at 49%, down from 65% in a short 4 hour span, and that's from not using it at all!!!!

Homestly i can't take it anymore. My battery drain has gotten worse! I'm on 10 hours of standby(i was sleeping) and i woke up and unplugged it from the charger and went to school. I'm on 2 hours of usage and I'm already at 65%! I'm gonna go make an apointment at the apple store and see if i can get a replacement because this is redic

This is so bad it's funny. I guess I'm supposed to be happy with getting a low battery warning before lunch?
I was getting like 9 hours usage on ios 5.0.
PS. Many of the people on this topic are posting battery life that sucks and claiming it is good, just because they are used to Android phones that go dead in a few hours. Something is definitely wrong with ios 5.0.1...
