  1. Shortly after the iPhone 4S launched, customers began reporting about unexpectedly poor battery life. Those complaints escalated last week as various media outfits picked the story up, prompting more users…

    My battery has never lasted longer since iOS 5. Using iphone4
  5. The only thing i'm experiencing on my iphone 4 regarding bugs is that when i load several apps while listening spotify, the audio keeps being interrupted for some reason... but as far as battery goes, it really improved my battery life!
  6. please bring back 3G on/off switch to ios5 for 4s users

    I noticed my whole phone is slower since installing iOS5 :( . Battery life is weird tho - last week my phone wast lasting almost 4 days and now it's down to two with about the same usage. I even turned off some of the location and "diagnostic" (code for privacy invasion) crap.
  9. I have no battery issues with my iPhone 4s.... So does this mean after the fix I will have super battery life?? The only suckers are people paying $100 more for phones with less features than the iPhone. There is no phone out there worth $299!
  10. Ure there a fix. just like the iPhone4. remember the lost signal fix when touching the bottom of the phone?! Apple "Yeah there was a bug in the software that was displaying an extra connection line. Its gone now so since you only loose one line of signal when touching the phone we are displaying one less so when you have 1 line drop to zero the phone works!!"

    wonder what there going to come up with for the battery

    Battery life is about the same as always, about the same as my 16GB 3GS was.....iOS 5 has TOTALLY SCREWED my photo album up though! Wow its bad and getting worse and it effects every app that uses photos....this is the first issue ive really had with an iPhone.

    You were doing well but then you said "less features than the iPhone" which made it obvious you were trolling. If you refer to an impossible scenario then people will figure out what you're doing.
  13. To be completely honest, you;re holding it wrong.
