    So here's one for y'all...I just went down 10% with 33minutes of usage and 46 minutes of standby. Me thinks something is awry with my phone. I've already restored once....

    My battery is amazing! Much better than 5.0.1. I currently have 3hr41 for usage and 15h34 for standby and my battery is at 60%

    Now that I've been monitoring for a few days I see some consistency forming. I'm losing 12-14% per hour of usage. I think that's ok with me. It gets me from 5:45am all the way through my work day so I have no complaints.

    I'm not the type of person that will 24-36 hrs of standby because, well, I USE my iPhone. LOL

    I turned off Siri today, and it seems that my battery lasts about the same as when Siri is turned on.

    I turned it off as well and don't notice much difference. I definitely have it where I must hold the home button to activate it though.

    Mine was terrible. Managed to run it down during a one hour train trip into NYC. Was listening to Internet Radio (WQXR) using a BT headset. It would run down overnight with no use.

    Went into the Apple Store in Grand Central Terminal. They warned me about Bluetooth, Location Services (GPS), and Notifications. Turned all these off. Did not help. Of course, with all these off, I was back to an iPhone 2.

    Suddenly the problem simply went away. No longer runs down overnight. Cannot relate it to anything in particular. No software changes. No settings. I still have BT off but GPS and Notifications on. I am careful about known energy hogs like TomTom.

    It must be a software issue, perhaps settings. I am surprised that no one seems to have been able to identify it.

    Yeah like you I USE my phone. I can't quite make it to the end of the day but no matter since I keep a charger in my office and car. Easy solution.

    When in use my phone chews through battery but what device doesn't. At times I wish the battery was accessible so I could put an extended one on it.

    Battery life is much improved for me since the update to 5.1 hit.
