My battery seems to have gotten much better. It seemed to be getting worse in 6.0.1 over time, but 6.1 seems to have made my 4S gain a good amount of battery.

Not bad here so far on my iphone 5!

That's with about 30 min on netflix, rest spent surfing the Internet mostly. Some twitter, music, texting. So pretty good in my opinion. I'll update later with some full day tests and comparisons to 6.0.1/0.2

Right now mine is

USAGE: 3HRS, 41MIN
STANDBY:4HRS, 15MINS

@58%

I've been playing games so I'm pretty sure that's why my battery has drained so much lol. Other than that I'm guessing I have pretty good battery life.

Now seems good enough that I can leave LTE and Auto Brightness on.

Previously, I had to switch both off to last through the day. It would consistently be dead by 6PM otherwise.

Now I'm still 48% at 4:30PM with LTE and Auto Brightness all day.

Battery life on my iPhone 5 is slightly worse then what I usually average. I'm going to let it go through a cycle before I judge, my LTE signal did improve though(up 2 bars).

6.1 battery issue?

Downloaded 6.1 on my i5 yesterday. I never had battery issues. But after the update, my battery dropped dramatically in the hours after the update. It dropped so bad that I was at 1% around 9pm when I would normally be around 45-50%. Plus the phone seemed warmer than it usually is. My usage pattern was not at all different from my usual usage pattern. I'll watch it today but there's either something going on with 6.1 or a very big coincidence. Anybody else notice this?

Still as "bad" as it ever has been for me after updating to 6.1.
Yesterday I was plugged in most of the day so didn't really pay attention.
Today, fully charged before leaving home for work.
Got here about 10:30am, it's now 1:20pm.

iPhone 5
remaining: 66%
Time since last full charge
Usage: 1 hours, 46 minutes
Standby: 3 Hours, 11 minutes

I've got most location system services switched off, only have Compass calibration, time zone setting, and traffic, switched on.
Have used facebook and iMessages, that's about it. Facebook location is switched off.

I seem to always have these issues after an OTA update. But if you restore in iTunes, then it seems to always fix these things.

Did you update OTA or via iTunes? Try doing a restore through iTunes if you have not yet.

Or just try setting as "new phone" without restoring via iTunes

Or Power cycle, drain it until 1% then charge it up to 100%

Sorry yes, I meant to mention.
I did a restore via iTunes (I prefer that to OTA, bit of a full refresh), then restored my backup.
I'd rather not set as a new phone yet, but may do if it doesn't get any better.
I am leaving it to go to 1% (or empty if I don't get to my charger in time) today before charging back up to 100%.

I've generally accepted poor battery life on all my iPhones, due to poor signal at work (mostly hovers around 2 bars). But at 64% after 1 Hours 51 Minutes, my battery will be flat after 5 hours before I leave work. 5 hours sounds a lot really, but it's not, because I know I haven't used my phone for 1 hours 51 minutes of my 3 hours I've been in work...

Yeah this is pretty bad lol.. I unplugged my phone at 6:45am checked facebook twitter and email on my home wifi, sent a couple text on my way in, and have been at work for an hour now, with no cell service at all and hit and miss wifi at my desk and I am still at 98% battery. Granted my phone usually just sits there doing nothing unless i get bored and want to play a game, or try and use what spotty wifi I have to check twitter or something. All my settings are stock haven't really turned anything off and auto brightness is on.
