    I'm curious who DOESN'T have 4s battery issues?

    I have a 4s and the battery is fine. This is my first iPhone so I don't have a good comparison. But I easily get an entire day with everything on an moderate usage. Last night the battery drop 2% in standby which I find more then reasonable.

    I'm curious if this is more of a rogue app rather then the phone. Why wouldn't I have any issues but so many others do?

    The 5.0.1 iOS update solved the vast majority of 4S battery problems. I had issues with mine prior to the update, but now all is well.

    No battery issues with my 4S. I'm getting the same battery life as with my 4.

    I'm able to go through a whole day with one charge. I use it probably more on the heavier side. But, when I'm home, I am near Wi-Fi. That tends to save a little more battery compared to 3G.

    When I first got my iPhone and I was using it all day long I had to charge it by afternoon or evening... But now that I'm using it normally and not excessively the battery lasts me to the end of the day easily. When I go to bed there's still a good 30 or 40% left :)

    There have been battery issues with the 4S? I wasn't aware of this.
