    Anyone see any battery improvement upgrading from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1? Or anyone see battery life get worse upgrading?

    Plenty of threads about this already that would give you all the answers you need.

    lot of threads already cover this question, but in a simple answer. yes, for me going from 5.0.1 tp 5.1.1 makes a night and day difference in battery life.

    I was already getting great battery life with 5.0.1 but 5.1.1 made it even better.

    I can confirm as well. Huge improvements. I wonder what they sacrificed to achieve this.

    My battery life has gotten worse from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 and I have location services even turned off in 5.1.1. I had it on in 5.0.1. I did a full wipe and install of 5.1.1 and did not restore any backups. Not sure what is killing the battery. I might need to wipe it again. I had more turned on in 5.0.1 and had better battery life. Strange.
