    I did an update yesterday. The update even said it was to fix battery life problems. I was a full charge at 5pm. After a few  phone calls I went to bed around 2am with a 48% charge. Woke up at 8am with a full drain.? It was in standby mode. That's crazy! Wish I had my old 4 back now. The fanfare has been a bit overblown about this thing!

    not only the 5.0.1 is getting no improvements in battery whatsoever, it is causing other major problems

     

    -mute speaker

    -wi-fi droping all the time

     

    great stuff

     

    will hang to  5.0 on my 4s in the next weeks

    Installed update, no improvement in battery life. I do not know what they think they've fixed.

     

    If you use one of the battery apps that estimates the use time left on the battery, you can see how off the actual usage is (they claim to use Apple's consumption algorithyms).

     

    However, I feel the REAL test of the battery life is talk time. I doubt I could get 3 actual hours of talk, never mind the 8 hours estimated.

     

    All other types of phone usage is hard to compare as we all live in different places, use the internet differently, and have different cell phone technologies. But talk time is going to be pretty universal.

     

    So, how long can you actually talk?

     

    So Apple: this does NOT seem to be a software fix. Figure out the HW problem and fix before we all return our phones! There are too many other choices of good phones now!

    I upgraded to 5.0.1 last night.  I unplugged the phone after a full charge this morning at 6:23am.  I made 3 phone calls (total talk time 15 mins), sent 15 text (imessage and sms), and opened 7 emails and at 11:23am and i have lost 41% of battery life.  This upgrade hasn't helped.  This is an issue that needs to be resolved.  If its a hardware issue than new phones should be given.

    As of 11/11 at 9:42 AM MDT, I'm seeing good battery life with my 4S.  I started 7 am yesterday with 100% battery, updated to 5.0.1 mid day and while on battery power.  In over 24 hours, with a few phone calls, a 15+ minute FaceTime call, some web surfing and running several apps, I'm finally down to about 38%.  I will monitor to see when it finally drops to <10% battery. But at this point I don't see a battery life issue with my phone.

    That is strange because it is suggesting that maybe it was/is a specific batch of phones that were affected by this. I preordered this phone at 3:01 am on October 7th, so I got one of the first deliveries. I wonder if it was the first wave of phones that went out that are having the problems. Anyone have a problem phone that they did not get on preorder?

    Notice no difference after the upgrade. UNTIL I DID A HARD RESET! Improved. I lose about 5% an hour. It was twice that before the upgrade and reset. Try it!

    checking apple news sites, the headlines are: guess....

     

    "...Apple News | iOS 5.0.1 Fails to Fix Battery Issues for Many, Brings New Problems..."

     

    "...IOS 5.0.1 Not Helping improve battery Life..."

     

     

    Sorry Apple but the placebo update didnt worked this time

    I just got my iPhone 4S yesterday and immediately updated to IOS 5.01. Pulled my phone off the charger this morning at approx 04:30 and in about 7 hours of light to moderate usage, my battery is down to 35%.  Location services are off and screen brightness turned down to approx 40% This could be a show stopper for me. My old android phone had far far superior battery life than this iphone and I want so much to love this phone.

    Did the upgrade last night and still no difference.  Today I sent 5 text messages and viewed 6 emails and my battery is down to 45%.

    Still having very bad battery life after 5.0.1 update on iPhone 4S. Most all settings regarding push notifications and location have been disabled. Been on phone for probably about 20 minutes total this morning and at 86%. Brightness is down and have tweaked as many settings as I could to help with battery life.
