    Has anybody else noticed battery life decreasing quicker with 4.2?

    Nope, but I have notice three separate threads on this topic.

    Yes. The battery life is definitely shorter now than it was before. I find that I have to charge my iPad every 2-3 days now instead of 4-5 days.

    It isn't at the point of inconvenience though.

    Not on the first 3 pages you didn't. Go back to your homework.

    Shouldn't have to power off either.

    Yea I am, (break), which is why I included the penis note... Been a rough, stressful BS filled day and I shouldn't take it out on you.

    Same here. Battery life is terrible even after trying all the stuff listed above. Sure, charging 2-3 days instead of 3-4 isn't that big of a hinderence, but the upgrade doesn't seem to be worth the trade off?

    My battery seems fine. Just finished an 8 hour drive with GPS on all the way, streaming Pandora and various other apps in the background via 3G and had 20% left after a 90% start.
