Does any one use the tune in app? I was using it and then updated to the tune in pro last night. Now today my battery is much worse? Also I have had a few times where in the morning my battery isn't charged all the way to 100 percent when I wake up. This morning it was at 100 then after hitting snooze a few times when I got up it was at 94? Could this be an issue in the alarm clock?

The screenshot was with iOS 5. I had push email off, and Siri raise to speak off. With 5.01 I have these options now on, along with everything else and getting even better battery. Can't upload photo on iPad but got 7 hours 36 mins usage and 1 day 5 hours standby with battery at 1%.

Well, I updated to 5.01 as soon as it came out. My battery life has definitely got WORSE, I should have stayed on v5.0.
I wished I hadn't bothered upgrading. My iP4 battery is as good as ever, also running 5.01.
Even if I kill all apps and do a cold boot, I can almost 'see' the battery percent dropping. I leave on the desk, come back an hour later and it's lost a percent or two. That's with everything killed. You don't buy a phone like this to have to disable everything!
Come on Apple....

Im seeing battery meter issues with this OS. I ran the phone down to 3% in which it took another hour and a half for it to die, spending 22 minutes at 1%. This is not right. The battery meter is lying to people. I killed the phone and "aligned the battery meter with the OS" its much improved. 2.5 hours of standby now, 1 hour 15 minutes of use. Still at 94%

Not to beat a dead horse, but just to show the non-believers that there are battery issues. I'm running 5.0.1 with email push and notifications on, except weather and stocks. I restored when I upgraded to 5.0.1 and completely ran the battery to 0 and recharged. Here is a screenshot from this morning. 93% after 9 mins of usage and 1 1/2 hour standby. This will get me about 21 hours standby total. Nowhere near the 200 hours of standby advertised on apple.com.

i think alot of this battery drain has got to come from the fact you cannot turn off 3G.
i rang up apple as im having issues with my 4s and asked this question.
The guy told me he thinks it does need to be able to be switched off and said he didnt really know why apple wont out this option on the 4S.
i dont need to be on 3G every minuite of the day and 3g does run your battery down alot.

I suppose its because of Siri. So you would think that if you turn off Siri, then the option to disable 3G would appear. Siri is good but not at the expense of battery life. I wouldn't really miss it apart from its novelty value.
My battery has gone from 100% to 88% in 55 minutes. Received one email and surfed a little. Very poor. Come on Apple. I suppose we will have to wait another month for an update now too!
I have tried restore as new, and switched off all I can think of but there is no difference at all.
It was much better on iOS 5.0

I'm getting approx 5.5 to 6 hours of usage and 1 day and 15 hours of standby on a 100% charge all the way down to zero! The hubby has my old iPhone4 and it is holding onto a charge a lot better than mine.
We tested both being charged at the same time with the same settings switched on his that are on mine...all except Siri, which is of couse on my is. Siri's raise to speak feature is off.
I feel as if has only gotten worse since the ios 5.0.1 was released. I've put in a service ticket with Apple just to see what they are saying about it. I'm interested to see what they say.

I am coming from an android phone so I have been amazed by the battery life. I have had no issues that I can tell. The first couple of days it burned quick due to me playing and I think it needed to break in some. But now even on heavy usage for me I am impressed.

Siri is far more useful than as a "novelty"... I use it regularly to send texts while driving, to read text message to me, etc. It's a feature and a tool, not a novelty.
