    I hope it improves my battery life. I can only go about 16 hours ish with my brand new 4s. I've only had it five days and I already can't stand the battery. Maybe if I used Siri less, I might get better battery power...but then what is the point of having a 4s? lol

    That is the selling point of the 4S, if it doesn't work i would want my money back or a new unit

    I must say, battery has been worse on my normal Iphone4 since upgrading to IOS5. Downloading this now - holding thumbs it improves.

    Battery life did improve with the update, anyone having problem with sms tone? After updating to ios 5 there was a stutter in the sms tone, still not fixed with the new update.

    I was not as lucky as you. My battery life seems as if it actually dropped with this update. I'm actually kind of pissed off at Apple right now. The selling point is indeed Siri, but I can only use her for a few hours before it dies. Thanks Apple
     
  8. 16Hours isn't good? I have a iPhone 4s and it makes it through the whole day fine with moderate use. If it makes it through the day I consider the phone fine in my book. I am not going to do the 5.01 update as I heard of a few issues when people upgraded and I see no reason to risk it when my phone is fine. I think people who are having battery problems are down to like 32% or less within 4 hours after pulling off charge. Now that would be a problem.
