Well, that is what I do with my 4S. before I restored my iPhone from my backup, but now I prefer to set it up as a new device. I like how it feels refreshed when I restore it as a new device. and more often than not, it minimizes the risk of some bugs happening because of the new version of iOS. But that maybe is just my opinion.

Some set it up as new and others do not. As for me, I usually update OTA just to get a quick feel for the new OS, but a day or so later, I restore as new. My device seems cleaner, so to speak.

That's kinda what I figured. I got iOS 5.1.1 OTA on it's release date and things seemed fine for a while but lately I've been experiencing faster than normal battery drain. I've seen that restoring as new seems to help these types of things so I did it. For a while, I thought restoring as new was simply resetting the settings. LOL

This is kinda how the day has gone...
Not very good but my signal struggles at work sometimes. Losing 19%/hr of usage still isn't very good at all but it's better than yesterday where I was down to around 28% at around 12:45-1:00pm...

your right, not outstanding but not terrible either especially if your phone struggles with signal. Hopefully after you let the battery run down completely and charge back up yo'll see more of an improvement
I gotta tell ya, seeing this and some others with 5.1.1 deal with this issue is why i'm sticking with 5.0.1 for now. i know i sound like a broken record, but i know what battery life i get on 5.0.1 & i'm satisfied with the function of my phone on it as well

When I had my iPhone 4, I started having the battery drain faster than what I was used to seeing, tried running the battery down till dead, recharging etc, but the battery problem remained. I then restored from a backup and the battery problem was gone.
What I usually do when there is a major iOS release (for example iOS 4 to iOS 5) I normally restore as new, then re-add all my content. I will be doing the same when I go from iOS 5 to iOS 6. This way I find that there is less chance of getting some bugs from the last software version, going into the latest software.
