Batterygate?

    How many iPhone 4s users will wake up this morning with ridiculously low batteries? It seems with Siri, location based reminders, iCloud, iTunes sync, etc. This may be a real issue.

    Well of course it's going to run down the battery if you have all those features turned on. I'm not against charging my new phone whenever I'm near a plugin, but that kind of defeats the point of having a mobile phone. I will try turning off features to save power and see if it defeats the whole new ios5 experience.

    Please, other iPhone 4s users weigh in this morning, honestly.

    Not this guy. I leave all that on and lose a couple percent overnight on my 4S.

    Check your PMs, too. Thanks.

    I generally get a couple of days from a charge. No real difference from my old 4

    Like Verwon, if I'm sleeping my phone is being charged. Low battery life below 80% annoys me to death.

    Doesn't everyone do this? Never had a battery problem because of this.

    Always charging when sleeping. Start each day at 100% and usually hitting low battery at bedtime.

    Couple of days on one charge? That means it is being used as a phone with very little calls and nothing else.

    I dunno, maybe I'm just not a heavy user of battery hungry apps, (Or at all). Current SitRep: 79%, over 7 hours standby and an hours usage. Synced it just after lunch today, so left it to charge up to 100%. Just after 8pm here at the moment, no need for a charge tonight, will last all day tomorrow. I'll post up this time tomorrow with another screenshot.

    I took mine off the charger 28 minutes ago, I'm browsing the Internet on wifi and I'm now down to 84% battery life...

    For some reason my usage stats are missing, but 31.5 hours in total from this charge with 15% to go. If I charge from near empty it'll go even further, closer to 40 hours.

    I'll do a full charge shortly and post usage results when its at 10%

    If you did a hard reset your usage will look like that till you charge fully (90%)

    Here we go!

    Like I've said, I'm probably not a heavy user. 2 hours of that usage will be listening to Music.

    Contributing factors:

    - I don't use iCloud
    - Phone is in Airplane mode overnight, (my txt tone is Homer Simpson screaming, not a good wakeup call. Plus notifications lighting up my room when I try to sleep annoy me)

    I have had my phone about 3 days now. I noticed that the battery seemed pretty bad so last night I didn't charge it just to see where it would be in the morning. I'm wondering if I have a defective phone now. My battery life is just horrible.
