    After finally being able to upgrade and jailbreak iOS 5.1.1. I must say that apple has finally fixed the battery standby drainage. With this version of ios, my standby have greatly increased. I'm not sure if usage have improved much but having a great standby time will results in slight increase in usage time. Before the update, I would be lucky if my phone lasted more than 12 hours without having to charge with my normal heavy usage.

    Are you guys experiencing the same results? Keep in mind my phone is heavily loaded with jailbreak apps/themes and this stats is a result of heavy normal usage not iPod playback. Screen brightness at 60%.

    i completely agree that Apple finally got it right. what i find odd is that there was no mention of it in the release notes

    AND if Apple holds true the next version should mess it all up lol !

    Of course iOS 5.0 beta 5 was still the best in battery life for me. 6:10 is what I get in usage time with 5.1.1 where beta 5 would reach 7 hours. Oh well.

    Yea I hope they don't screw it up, but I imagine there should only be one more release prior to ios 6.

    I am getting around 7 hrs of heavy usage daily on mine. I am quite impressed so far. No internet streaming though this helps battery life as well. Plus I don't keep brightness all that high either.

    Like the others, my battery life has been sufficient for my usage, but it has been that way since I purchased my 4S with maybe a minor improvement overall.

    I don't either. I keep mine about 50%. Anything more just hurts my eyes.

    I still find iOS 5.0.1 better in my Iphone4s in terms of battery consumption. That's why I really agree about what the author of this post The newest iOS 5.0.1 update for Mac User | Techyv.com about ios 5.0.1. I'll try to check iOS 5.1.1 just to check if it's better.

    I use the Sirius app at work since our IS blocked the online player and I can go until after lunch until I have to charge it. Occasional phone calls and a lot of text during that time as well. I see no battery difference now even pre-5.1.1 and pre-JB.

    I get over 5.5 hours of heavy use and 12 - 14 standby hours if I'm on my 4S most of the day. If I don't use it as much during the day because I'm on my iPad I can usually go 24 hours on a charge. iOS 5.1.1 is not as good as it was running 5.0.1.

    I finally decided to upgrade to 5.1.1 the other day, and I was wondering why my battery was dying so quickly. I'm seeing this is why, considering I had no problem on 5.0.1.

    I'm sorry to hear you both have seen a decline in battery life on 5.1.1. I've been holding onto 5.0.1 because my batt life has been good and i've seen alot of people (not just here on imore) complaining that on 5.1.1 their battery life is not as good.

    this is why i wont feel pressured into upgrading, and trust me, looking at the "1" tag on my settings icon is bugging the ish outta me!!!

    Edit: also, I did decide to update my iPad a couple wks ago to 5.1.1 and I can say my battery life hasn't been as good as it was when I was still on 4.3 (? I think it was). I have to charge it pretty much everyday now, whereas prior to I could go almost a full 2 days.

    strange for me is that, like 5.0.1, my usage/standby doesn't show up all the time. I usually only see "-" and not any hours... this was the same as 5.0.1 (both JB'd too)...

    5.1.1 makes my battery die faster by far than 5.0.1 did. I only upgraded because I wanted to output to my TV through the HDMI adapter (which works great by the way) but now as soon as I pull it off the charger it immediately drops to 99% and goes down quickly after that. Last night I pulled it off the charger, shut down all apps and went to sleep, this morning I am at 69% and it tells me that usage was 9 hours and 30 minutes since last charge with standby of 12 hours 48 minutes??? Yesterday was Friday, Today is Saturday and I don't know where the last 22 hours went? (it was on the charger for over 10 hours when I pulled it off at 99%) No bluetooth running either. It was never like this before the update. I have reset the phone, I even did a hard (complete) reset with no change - however it took two restores to get the apps back on and I didn't have my music or videos backed up so I lost some things I didn't want to OOPS!
