    So, we are getting closer and closer to GM release. The battery we are getting in the beta 6 are probably close to what it will be in official release. Hope it please us !

    POST IT!

    So far similar to beta 5. Beta 4 still the best.

    I had terrible battery life with beta 4, but it was because I did the OTA update. I went back and restored it with beta 4 plugged into iTunes, and it went back to normal.

    When I updated to beta 5, I updated through iTunes as well -- no battery issues. I'll update to beta 6 tomorrow.

    Beta 6 is performing better for me than 4 or 5 did.

    I installed beta 6 in yesterday morning and battery was great, but in the evening it just started to drop badly, never had this issue before with any beta.

    I think everyone on this page is eagerly waiting for the release... I bet Apple will address the issue by the final release, if not GM.

    my battery is draining like mad heres my stats:

    current battery percentage 64%

    time since last full charge
    Usage: 3 hrs 15 mins
    standby: 5 hrs 47 mins

    all I've done since full charge is listen to music for about hour an half and text once in a while. definitely the worst performing battery since beta's starts for iOS 5

    That seems pretty good I mean you have used the phone for 3 hrs and your at 64% if u double that that's like 6 hrs then add another 10% and you have at least 7hrs of usage and no telling how many of standby so by the time your batterie runs out you should be in bed with the phone charging
