Is it true that with the iOS 5.01 update, the iPhone 4 now has the exact same battery issue?

Have you tried restoring and setting the device up as new? I really wouldn't exchange an iPhone 4S for an iPhone 4, why downgrade? If you really want to get rid of the phone, sell it.

The battery on my iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1 runs perfectly. Battery usage, I consider to be normal.

Don't change your 4S just yet...there is 5.1 coming our way soon, said to address battery life.

Oh my bad I forgot the first update was 5.01 not 5.1. Despite it being in my OP!

I heard a developer reported that the 5.1 didn't address battery issues either?

I have iPhone 4 running 5.0.1, always keep location services off and the battery life is HORRIBLE :( The only way the battery won't die before early evening is if I do nothing at all.

I updated my iPhone 4 that haven't sold and I use as a TV show and Movie device for my TV since I don't have Apple TV. I have had no battery issues with it. In fact, it's doing what I want my iPhone 4S to do, or what it should do.

On my iPhone 4S my Standby and Usage times are the same all the time and I have done EVERYTHING to try to fix it, but it's not working so I have given up and I don't bother looking any more. My iPhone 4 is perfect in that department.

So I have no issues with my iPhone 4.

I am really puzzled, it seems some people don't get battery issues with the 4 while some do
I think it depend on the users, I've no issues with battery. Turning off bluetooth, locations, brightness, etc...
