    So when I went to sleep this morning, I placed my iPhone on the charger. I wake up 8 hours later and my phone is only charged 92%. Does anyone else have that issue?

    The battery really kills my 4S experience.

    Was the phone hot? That isn't normal, my iPhone charges very fast, about a percent a minute.

    Have you updated to 5.0.1 yet? Also try rebooting before you go to sleep. It will stop any processes that might contribute to battery drain and it's a good idea to reboot once daily anyway. It takes less than a minute so I don't think it's a hassle at all.

    Things like Push and Fetch email, Bluetooth, and Location Services are the other culprits, but you should be able to get it down to 3 or 4% drain in 8 hours while you're sleeping by updating the firmware and rebooting each night.

    Agreed. The 4S boots very quickly, even when doing a hard reboot.

    What percent did you start to charge at ? My 4s usually from 20%->100% usually takes about. 2 hrs . It's quick and my battery lasts for a very long time .

    My battery on my 4S is just awful. I'm on 5.0.1 and I can't even imagine running on 5.0. I got my phone on the 20th and have been dealing with the poor battery issue since. My 4 was so much better with battery than my 4S. Frustrating but I still love the 4S.

    My iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1 is horrible. I heard 5.0.2 will possibly have battery fix that was sopposed to happen on 5.0.

    I don't think it's the update it's your phone and settings people. Check it out !
    I'm still on iOS 5 no updates on my 4s and I get great battery life !

    I haven't done much to my settings or anything. Even Apple says they are well aware of a battery drain issue for iOS 5.

    Same here. I have not done anything different with my settings that would drain the battery the way it's been draining.

    Yeah. I've charged my phone a few times today. All I've really been doing is messing with Cydia and themes and stuff. Nothing serious.

    Wow must be nice! It's going to suck when I go back to work. I'm not going to make it a whole day on one charge.

    I've just been doing some twitter, web surfing, and words with friends with the wife and I have to make sure I have my cable handy because I'm at 20% in no time. I hardly even talk on the phone.

    22 minutes and all I have done is some Words with Friends and the EIC App.

    I have updated to 5.0.1. Before I go to sleep, I reboot my phone and I only charge my battery when I'm lower than 20%.

    I manually download my emails, location services are turned off.

    I've had my 4S since before the 5.0.1 update and battery life has always been horrible, even after changing the settings. I only started rebooting my phone before charging after a suggestion from an Apple specialist.
