    I can't really tell a difference in battery life but I've been tethering my phone alot since I went to IOS5 GM. So it stays charged at 100%, lol. But I really didn't see a difference. RAM is the only thing I noticed. More RAM used definately. Guys are saying they it at 280-300 normally. I was hitting 330-340 all day with 4.3.5.

    It's not as bad as Beta 7, but it's not very much better.

    It sucks when away from wifi. I'm going to limp along until I get my iPhone 4S next Friday and then nuke this baby (iPhone 4) before my daughter gets it.

    Both devices will then be set up as new. Hopefully that will fix my battery issues.

    It was the only way I could justify the new purchase. She's currently rocking a 3G! Ok, not rocking, more like limping along.

    It may appear to be a magnanimous gesture, but I did have ulterior motives

    So you're going to overclock the hell out of your old Iphone4 til it burns up, lol. Just curious what you meant by nuke.

    Just wipe it and set it up as new. Nothing quite so romantic as an actual nuke.

    i went from a 3G to the 4 and it was/is amazing! i'm assuming going from the 4 to the 4S will not be that significant?

    let us know Fausty!

    battery has been fine on the GM but not as strong as beta 5. That was the best for battery.

    I don't like it so far. Usually I lost about 10% per hour of usage. Now I lose about 13%. No bueno. For me, beta 5 was the top dog in battery life.
    Yeah mines on a steady decline five minutes after I
    Take it off the charger down to 95% when it normally doesn't budge
    Otherwise and there has been no chane in my settings

    After about 5 days on ios5. I've came to realize battery life is not as good than it was with ios4. It does drain quicker.

    That sounds like a battery issue, not the iOS. I'd take it to Apple if it gives you anymore battery trouble, or if that 5% starts growing faster.

    I attached a screen shot of my usage.

    This was mostly on 3g only. Only on wifi for about the last 2 hours the screen shot was taken.

    Most of the day I was in an office that has 1 bar of 3g or was that little circle thing, which is slower then 3g.

    I charged my ipad2 took it off of the charger and sat it next to me, about 5 hours later I was at 59% without even using it. I noticed that itunes was opening every 10-15 minutes on my desktop and finding my 3gs and my ipad2 even though they were locked but not on the charger. I disabled the wifi sync and the icloud backup and everything seems to have stabilized.

    Both of my devices were "restored" to IOS5.

    My battery was draining REALLY fast as well. That is what I loved most about my iP4 was the battery was a Beast. I am in Sales and the iP4 is my only phone #. No land Line, so I am on it all day with BT. I could still go into the night on a single charge most days. Not with iOS5 though. Yould watch it go down!

    I started over. I did a complete "Restore AS New". No restore from back up. Yeah it was a PIT but it seems to have worked. Yestrday was much better. I let it completely drain out last night and I am charging it up now and we will see if that helps any.

    I personally think it is all the Notifications that we have going on in the background. Android has the same battery problem but they brag about their notifications. Just my two cents.
