    As pointed out before, if you are concerned with battery life, STAY AWAY from this 5.1 beta, as it has been making the battery issue worse than 5.0.1

    Speak for yourself. Battery life has improved for me. However I have had a couple of kernel panics, forcing reboots and resetting a few settings. Twice so far. This was when I went to settings, general, usage.

    No offense, but you're running a JBed device and therefore not running the beta. I'm on two stock devices, and am running the 5.1 beta on both of them. I conditioned the battery on both devices overnight, and since have had much-improved battery life - even with my VZW iPhone 4 while in USCC-only territory for two days over the weekend (therefore roaming the entire time), with several email accounts being polled via Fetch and Push.

    IMO and in my personal experience with the 5.1 beta, you're simply regurgitating FUD.

    I have an off-topic but in-thread post. First, I'm kind of pissed off about what I discovered so bear with me please (I'm kind of growling too...).

    Since the 5.1 update came out, I'd noticed the Location Services (LS) icon turning on periodically, even with no services-related apps running. I'd "blocked" a couple of apps' access to LS to conserve battery life while I was out and about this past weekend (Weather app, for example). But, still the LS icon would flash and a few times the screen would turn on for a few seconds with the LS icon turning on then off in the Status Bar.

    One mystery solved.

    This could be just my device. I plugged my two iPhones in and wanted to update a Configuration Profile, and fired up the Xcode iPhone Configuration Utility. And, one of my two iPhones had the LS icon turn on 5-6 times while it was on in front of me. I visited the Console Log and found this snippet of text repeated several times in the Log (with changing time codes, of course):

    Dec 5 16:02:00 ATT-iPhone-4 Preferences[89] <Warning>: EntityClassUnknown: com.AlphonsoLabs.iphone.PulseNewsReader
    {
    Purpose = "Pulse wants to know your location in order to deliver news happening around you";
    }

    Pulse was not open. Pulse was not running the background. Pulse had not been turned on in 5 days. Pulse had no "local" feeds. My iPhone had been restarted at least twice since I'd opened and closed Pulse. And, Alphonso Labs offers no means to control LS access in device Settings or app settings.

    The Pulse app "checked" my location at least 4 times in a matter of 10 minutes. The Pulse app didn't check my location when I opened it. The iTunes Store indicates that the Pulse App is iOS 5 compatible.

    I've notified Alphonso Labs and I'll be notifying Apple via my developer account. I've deleted the Pulse app; the LS icon hasn't turned on randomly since.

    I'd been wondering why my ATT device had slightly-to-moderately greater battery drain when compared to my VZW device; the Pulse app wasn't installed on my VZW device. Now, I have an idea of why - I'll be looking through my Console logs to see which other apps are IDing me without my permission. I'm writing this FYI only for those not happy with their device's battery life, not wanting to open up a hot debate (I won't be engaging in one either). YMMV.

    Nope. It's not random - the app's making a call and it's evident in 5.1 but not 5.0, and it's doing something it shouldn't. I don't appreciate the snark, I'll keep it to myself from now on.

    while using Safari; has the URL address and Google search bar always had the slide away feature to give you more of a fullscreen leaving just the statusbar? hope that makes sense

    i guess i do not remember in builds past since most of the time i was jailbroken and used FullScreen for Safari. my apologies if it's been mentioned already

    So I guess 5.1 being in beta has nothing to do with your random problem? Silly. Send a bug report. Have fun.
    Did you even read his post? It was fairly helpful, and your response made no sense at all.

    Why are you surprised? Does apple have a 100% like clockwork schedule in releasing beta versions? The answer is no. So again....why surprised?
