    100% four hours ago, 18% now. Got this phone this morning, uprgraded to 5.0.1 and got about NOTHING on it. This **** needs to be fixed, this is the worst phone ever. My iPhone 3G had went from 100% -> 91% after a 2h30m busride with constant iPod playing. Unacceptable.

     

    Give me a phone that works.

     

    Now,

    The same thing to me. I upgraded to ISO5.0.1 last night, and I didn't see any improivement, somehow even worse.

    My battery droped 3% everytime I open my safari, for god sick, I don't even enter the web address yet. Apple didn't fix anything, this upgrade is the  worest ever.

    Haven't scanned all 308 pages of comments (and this may be way off target) but could all the battery trouble actually be from defective batteries? Since some people aren't having a problem at all while running the same softsware as those experiencing trouble could this simply be a case of "good" batteries vs. "bad" batteries?

    [Sorry if this is too stupid a post]

    I would allow the apple engineer to install any programs and find out the source of battery drain problem.

    I have updated to 5.0.1. But then my battery starts to drain so fast, while I dot have this problem for iOS 5.0

    5.01 has made my previously ok battery life worse!

    How can it be a "Total" waste of time when the update is fixing the problem for some?

    iPhone 4S 16 GB here.   Before installing the 5.0.1 update I was getting decent battery life and standby.  After the update I still get ok standby but when I use the phone for any reason the battery drops faster than before I installed the update.  I am convinced the update is the culprit and wish I didn't install it.  While shutting off certain functions helps for people none of us should have to do that.  The phone is advertised as a phone with some neat features and is not advertised as a phone where one should need to turn off certain features to make the battery last.

    I don't think it's a stupid post-it's a legitimate question.  I am convinced that a majority of the issues have to do with the software.  Therecould also be bad batteries in the bunch.

    It's definitely worse after the 5.0.1 update. My iPhone is surviving(thanks to my external battery case and plugging cables in in every room in the house!), but my iPod Touch is worse than after the last update, fluctuating from 55 to 20 to 55 to 20 to 25 to 55, then back down to below 20%.

    I am now very confused.

  • Cyotheking Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm convinced it's software, I have a iPhone 4 running 4.3.x and it's been sitting for almost 2 hours with the screen on and hasn't lost a percentage

  • 7e72004 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I also was thinking about exchanging for a different phone but am concerned that the new phone would be the same or even worse.

    Fully charged at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon. Currently, it is 8:19 p.m. and my phone is at 66%. Since last full charge, it says I have had 2 hours 16 minutes of usage and 3 hours 45 minutes in stanby. I have not received or made a call since it was charged. Before it was fully charged, I completely reset the phone and erased everything and set the phone up as a new iPhone. Definitely has a problem still.

  • toyo8696 Level 1 Level 1 (20 points)

    I think it would be very useful for a log to be started that lists the apps and the exact settings. There is simply no way to compare our phones with others since they are all different. What would be interesting is if someone has 2 phones of exact hardware and do a comparison.

    My Iphone 4S battery suddenly started getting too warm and loosing charge rapidly. Recharging made teh phone warmer and bettery drained rapidly in standby. I got a new phone 4s, 2 days ago. Updated 5.0.1, battery still drains at 2% an hour in standby and more faster with very light use, checking emails.
    I have seen sometimes my phone doesnt reach 100% charge some times over night, remains 98-99%. Unplug and replug and charge reaches 100%. 5.0.1 did not fix any thing for me. I dont have any apps other that Yahoo/Optimum mails and my coprate emails. Location services disabled. I evevn turned off iCloud ( I dont feel happy about this). This is my firsy Iphone after switching from Droid. Not too happy.

    Remember that if you set up as a new Phone again and imaged it via iCloud to load all contacts, etc. That will take most of that usage time and battery power. (Running in the background ! )
