    Yeah, something's wrong there, unless you were talking on the phone for four hours. Mines about to die, so I decided to take another:

    You answered your own question though. You're doing close to 7 hrs of usage in 1 day, it takes him 2 days to do that.

    Just before the phone died at 2%. Did not make the 10 hours usage but I did make the 1 day stand by. This is with very heavy use. The phone is practically glued to my hand

    yes but towards the end of the process, when given the option, you'll be asked if you want to restore from a backup or setup as new. obviously set up as new

    That's fine, I haven't had time to put much on there other than my apps.

    This is the most usage that I have ever received with any of my smartphones so far. iOS 5.0.1 on my iPhone 4 has been very good after the 3'rd battery cycle.

    For those getting nice long battery life...do you use location services? I had mine off but just turned it on for urban spoon and maps only.
    I keep location services on on as well as WiFi. I still get great battery life.

    I thought that I would share my battery usage. This is with quite minimal usage and with nothing turned off!

    np, i like to help when i can as i learn more and more along the way. We all have our methods and things that we're set on doing or trying out, to try to solve what ever issue is going on ATM. What solution works for some, may not work for others.

    Either way, we always find what works best for ourselves and sharing that with others at times helps benefit them as well

    Once again, good luck with your testing today. Hopefully you'll get better results !!
    OK I don't know what happened but now it's actually on the 4th day and I'm @ 54% with the 1 hr train rides and regular use

    Didn't get a screen shot but I left work at around 4:00pm with around 9.5 hrs of standby and a hair over 2 hrs of usage and still had around 70% of my battery left.

    Yeah I think you guys were right and it was something that got fixed after the reboot. I also removed Osfoora HD the only app that hasn't been updated since iOS 4. I removed the location from Safari(big one in my opinion) and removed the calendar notifications from the NC. I don't use my iPad at work anyway I just had that on because I could. So I think the whack of that stuff had a profound effect because now I'm getting 4-5 days between charges with regular use. I don't use my iPad hardcore so I'm not saying this is what everyone else can expect but the best I had was in iOS 4 at 3 days so it's a huge improvement.

    For my iPhone 4S, the battery life was great with 5.0.0. It wasn't until I wifi-updated to 5.0.1 that I started getting bad battery life. I read somewhere that there may be an issue with wifi updates leaving residue so perhaps that could be the cause.

    I'm doing a factory restore now, I'll let you know if I start getting better battery life.

    EDIT:

    Didn't seem to change much. Perhaps some slight improvement... but nothing groundbreaking. I did restore the phone back to its backup instad of setting it up as a new iPhone.
