When I upgraded to 5.0.1 I could almost watch my battery drain right before my eyes. Literally LOL. Well, I did a restore as new after doing a backup. Now after doing some heavy surfing and some texting for 8 hrs or so, I would be down to 60-65%. I am very pleased with the battery now.

I've contemplated doing the restore as new, but it seems like a hassle to have to reload everything. I know I can do a back up, but I guess my main concerns are:
-backup of Kindle books that i've downloaded directly onto my phone (non iTunes books)- don't see a way to back these up with either iTunes or any other means.
-reloading all my apps that i've downloaded - do I need to re-download these from the App store or will they get transferred back via iTunes?
-email, contacts and calendar are all backed up using Google, so I'm not worried there. Reminders and Notes are backed up using iCloud.
-browsers such as Atomic - will the bookmarks that I've saved be kept with the program or be deleted?
I think it just may be worth it for me to wait for 5.0.2, or even 5.1... my battery life isn't terrible, so i'm not really in desperate need of better battery life.

Originally my battery was horrible as I could literally watch it drain. I upgraded to 5.0.1, turned off the data and usage sending, let the battery go down to basically nothing, then did a full charge... ever since that I have had pretty decent battery life and a noticeable difference.

I used to decent battery life but over the last week I've experienced problems. While at work last week, twice my reception cut out and my battery drained because my phone was searching for a signal. Now, today at work my reception was fine and battery life was normal. Then, I downloaded a game (didn't open it) and my battery drained from 91 to 25% in like 2.5 hrs. Isn't that odd?

Oddly enough, I feel like my battery has gotten better lately. With a jb'ed phone running IntelliScreenX, push mail, and more, I got home from work today (seven hour shift with some mail checking/game playing/twittering) with 98% on my phone. I was so sure it was a bug that I did a respring, but it was correct.
Loving my battery life, though usually it does use more than that.
