I've been running the 6.1 beta 5/ GM all day. I don't c a difference in battery performance, as of yet. Im hoping it takes time 2 seat.

really? I didn't notice the improvement until I woke up and charged it to the top. Hope it gets better for you. I did a fresh clean install of it, and the difference is night and day in battery life. Cheers

Just wanted to report. I have over 38 hrs on this charge. Same settings as I mentioned before. Brightness is bumped up to 1/3 of the slider. Had one FaceTime call and a couple cell calls.

I am restoring to the latest now. Once I charge fully overnight and use for the entire day tomorrow I will then report back with my findings. Here's hoping they fixed it!

Here my experience.
After lot of weeks with my battery discharging in a couple of hours, after a long chat with Apple support, after bad toughts like "throw against the wall", I did this steps:
. remove the cover with aluminium backside my son gave me
. set up the phone as new
. synchronize (instead of restore previous backed up from my iPhone 4)
. be amazed (from 6.00am 100% to 11.30pm 35% surfing, mailing, facebooking, twitting, calling with wirless and 3G allways on).
I swear I do not understand but i guess that the cover with aluminium backside win!

Did you get a new phone, or just update to 6.1beta 5?
I am on beta 5 and don't see any changes. Battery is draining on 4G (3bars) even in standby.
Also, my wifi won't stay connected anymore.
I have about given up on this POS

Hey cocktail, I did get a new phone. I returned it literally more times than I should admit lol but I wanted what I paid for.
Anyway this is a brand new phone built in December. I did a fresh install of the new software, battery much better- except I'm completely with you on the wifi situation! *** is that? It connects but it is so weak! Even in front of the router the bars drop! Very weird... I'll take better battery over wifi any day tho (as if I should have to) annoying.

iOS 6.1 is here. I will let you guys know if there is any change as far as battery life is concerned.

Since upgrading "Personal Hotspot" is now greyed out. What gives?

Working fine here. Perhaps a hard reboot (home>sleep button combo) Or if that doesnt help a settings>reset>reset network settings. If still not working settings>reset>reset all settings (which wont dump your data or apps). Lastly if none of those steps work, restore from iTunes.
BTW did you do OTA update or iTunes full update? I have performed OTA and so far no issues to speak of but lots of folks with issues have to do iTunes full restore to resolve quirky stuff like that.
I am a 4s user not iPhone 5 so want to be clear there.

Please, i know it's very soon yet but it would be great if you're go reporting your experiencies about the new IOS 6.1 and battery drain during the next days to know if you notice some improvement about it.
