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

    I was about to exchange my 4s for a 4 because the battery is so bad, is the 4 almost just as bad tho?

    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.

    How do I restore? Will I have to start it over or will backup bring it right to where it was?

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

    No, I mean 5.1, it's already in beta for developers.

    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.

    How is it possible that you two have completely different results?

    Magic




    But we don't have 3G so maybe....I don't know what one takes more power, 3G or Edge.

    I am really puzzled, it seems some people don't get battery issues with the 4 while some do

    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.

    So is it totally uncertain that getting a 4 would be better for battery

    Normally I'd agree with this but even if I barely use it the battery will be in the red before 8pm
