    First of all, I updated OTA to 5.0.1 for the first time...very cool, much more efficient and much faster. Too early to see if the update fixed my battery life (which has been horrible) but I'll report back here as soon as I can tell.

    Who else updated OTA?

    I updated OTA but, as you stated, too early to tell if it had any effect.

    It's clearly too early to tell but I've just updated and my battery life went from 96% whilst installing to 98% after reboot.

    And no, the charger wasn't connected

    Next time READ the initial post. I said right away that it was too early to tell but I would report back. Clearly expected others to do the same.

    5.0.1 OTA Update

    Installed the update OTA. Before rebooting to complete the process, battery was at 68%, after rebooting the battery showed 56%. WTFFF :mad:

    After the update I am draining at about 1% per minute, opposed to before which was 1% every 10-minutes.

    This is not a good start, :apple:

    I'll post a thread in 2-3 days when I could maybe tell if there's any changes or not.
    By then this thread will be 4-5 pages behind the first page threads. Just saying.....

    I think my battery life is fixed finally!!!!

    Just installed and within 8 hours of usage (web browsing, YouTube streaming, texting), it declined by mere 6%. Thanks, Apple.

    That sucks, I do noticed the 4S battery going faster than my previous iphone 4 but nothing that critical.
    How can you tell that you battery is worst within 5-10 of usage. Why not let it calibrate and give it a few days use? Or maybe Im too crazy to think that?

    From the onset of my battery issue I have been wondering if it's the battery monitoring logarithm or if it's actually draining that fast

    I updated a 3GS OTA and it took probably about 8-10 minutes or so (I didn't time it so that's my estimate).

    Oh wow, that quick? Great!!!! I've got multiple devices to upgrade so I'm glad to hear it is a short process.
