    It's exactly the same as beta 1 for me, which is exactly like 5.0, which is awesome. I have never had battery issues.

    5.0.1 beta changed nothing for me, which is good because I have no issues.

    I'm hoping they find out the problem and fix it.

    You'll have to wait till after the release of 5.0.1 otherwise they will likely turn you away saying "it's a software issue that will be addressed in an upcoming release ).

    Ok. 1.5 hours of music streaming from 8 to 9:30 am. About 10 messages back and forth. About 30 emails. 45 minutes worth of calls. Checked Facebook a few times, ran gas buddy and used maps to locate gas station. Ran speedtest a couple of times. Some time of random Internet browsing. Checked the app store for updates a couple of times. Took one picture. Typing this out...now down to 13% battery. 4.5 hours of usage and 7.5 hours of standby.

    I started my work day at 100% charge.

    Some questions that come up:
    - 1) What was your usage and battery remaining at the end of the day before 5.0.1 b2?
    - 2) Is cellular reception spotty currently, are you traveling more than usual? etc etc.

    A single snapshot is only so telling unfortunately.

    1. About 20%
    2. Cell phone strength is strong where I work. Usually around -60.

    Minus the type of 5.0.1, what's wrong with it. Get over it, move on, no one cares except you.

    Have you tried the 5.0.1 release? There is a difference - 5.0.1.b2 is build 9A404; the version released today (5.0.1, released) is 9A405.

    I didn't have much of a battery issue before, but this update is pretty good...

    Standby: 3:51
    Usage: 1:02
    Battery: 96%

    Yeah I just installed it. I'll have to see what happens. I still believe 5.0 beta 5 was the best for me. I'd get nearly 7 hours of usage time, as opposed to 4.5 at most on the final version. It was a 4 compared to the 4S I have now, but we'll see.
