    I updated from 5.1.1 because I was too lazy to restore 2 times in one week.

    The battery performance is undoubtedly worse but I ca still get through the day. Today I had 8hr work day, then went to the gym an hour away for an hour, then home (another hour-long commute) and hit walmart on the way...

    Used my iPhone a lot while commuting, and it died just before I got home. I found it acceptable at least.

    Here's my battery life so far.

    Brightness at 75%
    WIFI/Bluetooth On
    Like 30 minutes of Pandora
    20 Minute episode on Netflix
    Played Subway Surfer & Temple Run Brave
    All Location Services On
    Used navigation on a quick ride
    And tested Siri out

    I've been getting 5 hours usage with very heavy use, with 5.1.1 I was getting a little over 6 hours...

    WAY better than iOS 5.1.1 but only after setting it up as a new iPhone. Battery life was the same when restoring from a backup but once I restored and set up as new it's been golden!

    Usage and on screen time are two different things.

    went back to 5.1.1 in 48 hours....it was unbearable because of my battery power and everything seemed to freeze up if over 5 apps are open...my phone even shut itself off for 10 minutes and powered back on o_O' so ill wait until they polish it up a bit

    It's good unless you use maps for turn by turn navigation

    In all honesty though, most of time people will be using this feature in their cars, so its going to be easy enough to have the iPhone running off the cigarette lighter socket.

    My battery was so bad that I felt like I could watch the percentage number drop before my eyes.

    Usage 3 hours (wi-fi on about half the time, bluetooth off, no streaming), Talk time 1.5 hours, battery went from 100% to 5%. This was with about 10 minutes of turn-by-turn.

    Put my Juice Pack on today and will eagerly await for the next rev!

    maybe or maybe not. something similar has been happening to me since the 4.0 days

    for example (not using beta) one day i will take it off the charger and it will drop to 99%-98% in about 15 min so i will do a reboot and it goes back to 100%. then next day it will stay at 100% for an hour or more, same usage

    Mine was draining fast and then I put it back on charger to 100 and it's been there for the last hour .. I think it has to do with it sitting on charger after being 100 for a while it stops charging till a certain point

    I am tracking 11 hours usage and 2 days standby on iPad 3. 4S gets 6+ hours of usage on full charge. It will last me the full day.

    i think you said in a previous post that you restored from a backup. did you load all of your apps, previous to the beta, back on too?

    For the first beta, I obviously had to restore via .ipsw. I then loaded my 5.1.1 backup which then automatically loaded my apps back on. Then for beta 2, I just did the OTA update.

    I'm finding beta 3 battery life to be worse than beta 2. Draining faster. About equal to my GNex, which was not the case with beta 2. Not a big deal, since we are still in beta mode. But noticing quite a bit worse battery life on my 4S with beta 3 than with beta 2.
