    After my previous post I had issues even with the PIN turned off... Could not send any SMS anymore but Internet was still available... a lot of drops...


    I did now a total erase and reset and I'm charging my iPhone now again! Will keep you informed if battery life is better afterwards...

    i am on iphone 4 16gb white 5.0.1

    battery life is great - much like it was on 5.0, almost all services are off except some notifications

    after night i get a battery drain of only 2-3%

    if i do only call on it it could easily last 5-7 days or even more


    as for me i think it is more of an hardware issue with the iphone 4s cause majority of users  experience battery troubles on 4s


    i am so happy that i didnt buy one, instead i got the 4 on a good sale %)



    cheers, hope your battery life lasts longer

    I have Iphone 4S, 32GB, black.


    Updated to 5.0.1, I used few minutes 3G technology, moreless 30 minutes, I had full battery, in 30 minutes lost 6% battery - very great! F**K

    Did you see improve in battery life after update???

  • MiCoIT Level 1 (50 points)

    Some yes... some no... some only after completly resetting the phone.


    I guess if you did a restore by backp from a 3GS or a 4 to your 4S it gives you a lot more issues then just building a new system... Will keep you informed on my phone, seems fine now after a total erase and reset.

    Yesterday I applied the Fix 5.0.1.


    Do you guys remember the "ANTENNAGATE" Fix where Apple was just  has changed the display for the signal bars strength? ROFL?


    They did it same here with battery.


    After I intsalled the 5.0.1 full discharge and recharge, I´s able to hold the 100% up to 25 min talking/surfing/emailing. After that it drops to 98% instantly, then it continues dropping so fast I cant believe!!! Apple just changed the display of the battery status....




  • Bardyt Level 1 (0 points)

    @Robin,  right! I had 100% and in few seconds 98%, and later to 30 minutes 94%. ,


    What more, I know person, which has oldest version Iphone, but has iOS 5.0 (without update yet) and he has normall battery.

  • jamesaaa Level 1 (0 points)

    like i said - battery on iphone 4 with 5.0 was great

    with 5.0.1 its about the same, i have no issues

  • Bardyt Level 1 (0 points)

    So what, its not software, just same Iphone 4S is bad?

    Well, the update is slowly "sinking in". Some users who can have improvements will end up triggering the conditions to make it work, whereas for the remaining users who still have trouble, this will soon become indicative of faulty hardware (or whatever) and they should have their phones replaced or refunded.


    "People experiencing battery issues shouldn't be alarmed!" - They will sleep soundly. Hope you get it, it's a real good one!


    Briefly commenting on this guy's post from Dubai a bit earlier on, I thought of another one: "What do you tell a guy in Dubai if 5.0.1 doesn't work for him? - Well, you're lucky you can still go back to Palm" lollll. haha.


    Finally, as this will be settling down (?), I think the time has come for the awaited "video apology" from Apple's top brass to the "small number of users" who have hit the thread 306 157 times. And let's have it in HD with Apple's lossless recently open sourced AAC audio (cheers for that!) - because we want to see the tear in the eye and hear the tremolo in the voice. Apple could ask to put it on their home page. I for one would perceive it as a sign of humility and respect for the (small) user base who has been suffering and all. I mean if RIM did it, Apple can do it better... with Imovie. Of course I make jokes about this but seriously it takes guts to do that and I would respect it a lot, it would go a long way into showing that changes are possible at Apple. I mean think different. So if not for the user base then for me?


    Thank you!

    After updating I thought the issue was fixed as sending 2 messages + 20 mins of music only sapped the battery by 1% (started day with 100%). Great! But then connected to wifi and sent 8 or 9 imessages and looked at BA app for a few mins and was down to 86%. Genius bar later. At least now I know it is a hardware problem.

  • Bardyt Level 1 (0 points)

    I dont know, like was in the case Iphone 3, but Iphone 4 - had problem, Iphone 4s - has problem, so next time, if of course will buy next version (will thinking yet), just will wait on buy few months, because like see, you can't created nothing good! Sorry, but this is true! How is possible, that Iphone 4S been tested by operators and did not see the problems?


    Sorry for my bad english.

    I m really not happy about this. I picked up the phone 2 weeks ago and had it plugged in and charging most of the time (car to work, notebook at work, car home, nightstand charger etc) so i never really noticed the battery issue.

    Now while on a two week trip overseas I really needed the iphone (4S, 16gb) to work well and it has failed be. I cannot believe a smart phone won't last more than 3.5 hours. Yes, I get a lot of emails but I have push turned of and pull once an hour. Maps once in while then I kill the process.


    Even on the plane in flight mode I only got 6 hours of podcast listening! Screen off and just listening - no other apps running.


    I thought 5.0.1 would be the fix - wrong. No change at all.


    I wish I had kept the iphone 4 with the older iOS. On my previous trips I swear that would last at least 24 hours.


    Come on Apple....I've had every iphone so far and this is the first one I have regretted getting.
