iOS 5 is for Dev's only, it's still in beta. if you're not a dev, wait til launch.
iOS 5 really isn't worth using unless you're a dev. Wait until launch for the issues to be dealt with
I'm making this a separate post in case the Admins need to delete it.

The OP said he needs iOS5. He could be a dev and is asking about the battery life before taking the plunge. I've also got a personal opinion on whether he's a dev or not, but staying on topic is a good thing. If the OP paid his $99 then he knows the rules. If he's going to go torrent it or pick it up some other way, then I don't think he's going to listen. Personally (again) I'm not a dev and I would love to try the new stuff but I'm not going to put a beta on my daily use phone.

Hence the "unless you're a dev"

i was on topic, i stated battery works great, i added the latter in case he was not a dev as some people on here are quick to attack anyone that seems to encourage non-devs to install. i'm not a dev, i do beta testing for my mate and i get to put beta on my iPhone and iPad and as perk, my apple tv 2, they're in everyday use and not had any debilitating issue. if anything, my battery life is better than iOS 4.

I think the battery is way better on beta 4, hell it may be a bug. Mine is so good it's not funny. 3hrs 39min and 67% left. If you have a friend that is a dev, or you are, it's worth getting hooked up with the beta, the new features are great and for what I do it seems pretty bug free.
