Battery life on my new 4s ***** BIG TIME. I have about 40  apps, more than 50% of them have notifications disabled. I also have reminders disabled in addition to disabling other items like Siri, two calendars.


With these settings, on a fully charged phone, i end up losing nearly 80% of battery life in less than 6 hrs. My typical usage during this time is checking emails for a cummulative of 60 minutes and browsing for about 30 minutes. Outside of this, there are NO other activities at all, but the battery life keeps going down.


Being a big fan of almost all of apple products, this is a huge disappointment. While i like the phone for everything else, battery draining like this is a big disappointment and maybe a motivation to look for phones from different companies with a reluctant mind.


I just hope you folks fix this either through a firmware upgrade or have an exchange of the phone with issues being fixed.



iPhone 4S, iOS 5
