I'm not having that problem,
But, check your settings and see if Siri's 'raise to speak' option is turned on. This will consume battery power faster.
Also check to see if you have any Reminders set to trigger on a location change.

Get into Settings and go over each darn little thing in there. Given the woefully brief list of "fixes" and that we have now confirmed many 'under the hood' changes in both the OS as well as the default apps, I would almost expect many settings to be changed, enabled or added. Especially if they attempt to make it flashier and more user "friendly" (interpretation subject to debate).
So yeah, you will have to go thru everything and make sure everything that should be off/disabled/disconnected remains so.

I'd allow the phone battery to completely expend itself. Then plug it in and do not remove it from charging until fully charged. This will re-calibrate the battery.
Also, Check to see if anything that uses GPS may be running.

turn off lte (just use 4g)
You do mean "use 3G", right? Cause 4G == LTE.
And I concur. Force quitting unused apps (double-click Home, tap&hold till it wiggles, tap red buttons) will prevent self-updating apps from doin' their thing. Ah, the joys of half-arsed multitasking...

Not with my carrier. And that appears to coincide with the marketing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LTE_%28telecommunication%29
Technically, LTE or LongTermEvolution is really 3GPP, but the marketeers decided 4G was easier to grasp.

3GPP is a standards body, not a technology designation.
LTE is very fast 4G
4G is slower
3G is slow, slower.
All of these are essentially marketing terms more than they are a pure technology standard.
And then there is True 4G, and I don't know if the iPhone falls into that category.
The iPhone 5 (att version) in the USA, will failover from LTE to 4G to EDGE to GPRS.

I went through all my settings. Everything was set as it was before I upgraded. I don't want to turn off gps but I did turn off bluetooth however it was on prior to 6.1 and my battery was fine.
I have force quit apps running in the background frequently today and it hasn't slowed the battery drain.
It sounds like I'm the only one this is happening to.

I am dealing with this same issue as well since updating last night. Battery life was fine with 6.0 on the 5. And now it drains like crazy and even when I am simply doing a few texts after the 6.1 update.

From iTunes on your computer, try restoring your iPhone as new, i.e. not installing the backup when requested. You'll then need to re-setup your email, reinstall your apps and resync your iTunes library. This will most likely solve your battery problems and IMO, is the best way to update the iOS.

Thats because app don't run in the background easily on the iphone in the first place. only apple designed apps do, and a few limited-functionality 3rd party ones.
the list of apps that you see on the bottom when you double click the home button is a most recently used app list.
