    Earlier today, I discovered that some of the pictures in my contacts were corrupted, and were slightly off. I decided to turn off iCloud contact syncing, and then I deleted all of the pictures in my contacts (including the Apple contact picture). Around an hour later, I've noticed that my iPhone's battery life seems to be improved. I haven't had a chance to do any real tests, but it seems like the battery percentage is decreasing slower than before.

    For iPhone 4S users with good battery life: Do you have any pictures associated with contacts in your contact book?

    For iPhone 4S users with poor battery life: Do you have any pictures associated with contacts in your contact book?

    Thanks guys

    Turning it off is not enough, I have already tried that. For some reason, deleting the contact's pictures did the trick. (Make sure to back them up beforehand!)

    I don't have contacts syncing on iCloud as I use gmail for that. However after turning of all the "systems services" in the location setting I have noticed my iPhone 4S battery life is way better infact my iPhone 4S is sitting at 71% with 4 hours of usage and has been on standby for 14 hours.

    Yes, but it will come out in the next few weeks. In the meantime, why not try to figure out why this is happening? :D
