    There's a thread on battery life in the betas... and a random smattering of posts on this thread, as well...

    Overall, I'd rate battery life of beta 4 and 5 as VERY GOOD. IMHO, it's as good or better than 4.3.3 was. I have no complaints.

    For those of you running the beta version how has the battery life been? Any positives/negatives?
    If your worried about any negatives, stay off the beta. They are betas after all.

    My batt life is not soo good on beta 5. I took it off the charger at 7am made a few text messages and IM's and left it alone for the rest of the day now its like 39% at 1pm...

    Im wondering if its the location based reminders draining it?

    Uh, yeah... that will do it. If you have an app (or multiple apps) constantly checking GPS/cell triangulation to identify your location, you will go through battery pretty fast...

    if there is going to be a noticeable difference, regarding battery life/usage, when using location based reminders then i have no desire in using that feature. none

    I don't have any info on this. I didn't get it with last beta either. I have heard the 18th but that's not from my reliable source though.

    Beta 5 is nowhere near expiring so why the mad rush to get beta 6? meh I'm sure as soon as it's out my twitter timeline will explode and I will get it the same day. I'm a betting man so I'm going to say this Friday which will be the 19th.

    It wasn't going to happen on the 17th. 9to5Mac has been reporting for a while to watch for it on the 18th. I have a feeling they are right.
