    ICS has them. I'm probably waiting for the ota update or for another week or two until more people post their problems updating and get helped.

    Here is the link. It was actually started by Foxkat. I am assuming you are stock ICS and so you should just start where it reads class 3

    You are so lucky I was at 80% after 2 hours of use. I am not sure what is going on with my phone I did the update and then did the FDR yesterday but the battery is still not giving me the type of length that you are experiencing.Not sure what I need to do to make it better.

My battery meter is showing 80% after 18 hours of use....and for me, it has been more than the usual use with the holidays and the extra picture taking, face booking and calls. The counter should actualy show > 24h but I plugged it in to my car charger for about 10 minutes to see if there were any new features in vehicle mode.

    So, if this pre-release (mistaken release) is any indication of the improvements we will see, and possibly some refinements on top of that, they nailed it in my book. My Maxx is like a new phone!

    EDIT:

    Several hours later.... still at 80% !!

    I'm not sure I'm buying this. What apps are you using? Are you rooted? Do you underclock your phone while not in use? Are you using the stock ROM?

    No root, running stock JB "update", no underclocking, no special battery apps.... just following FoxKats advice. I do use smart actions sleep mode at night which turns off background data. I use my phone regularly during the day too. Moderate amount of texting, calling, internet. Even daily streaming music over wifi then bluetooth to my logitech BT receiver.

    Things I have done: Set screen brightness to auto and checked battery saver. Set weather sync to 6 hours. Killed the facebook process ( a big battery hog). Set my pictures to auto upload only on wifi when plugged in. I also turned off the feature in "gallery" to see others pictures (another big battery hog).

    Once a week I let it drain down to about 30%, turn it off and let it charge overnight. The rest of the time I charge it with it turned on - about every other day now.

    Funny thing though is I've thought from the start I got a "good" phone because I really haven't had a lot of the other problems I've seen posted on the forums.

    Did a lot of the same things on my wife's Samsung Stratosphere and she sees similar results, as opposed to our son who won't let me tinker with his phone and has to charge twice a day.

    I feel that I got a "good" phone also, but I'm not getting the battery life you are. Of course, I don't have my phone set up exactly like yours, with the same power saving features. I am also not running JB yet, but hope to be very soon when they send it out OTA.

    What all did you do to save your battery life, or is it just what you listed here??

    Can you describe what you mean by "checking battery saver", "killed the Facebook process", and what Gallery feature are you referring to about seeing other pictures?

    In Screen settings under brightness, there is a check box for "Display Battery Savings" that I checked.

    For gallery, I had unchecked "Display Friends Pictures" (or something like that) but apparently that setting is no longer present in JellyBean.

    To kill facebook, I go into running apps under manage apps and stop all the FB processes. I don't use FB that much on my phone so I may actually disable the process alltogether.

    Screen brightness is the single best thing you can regulate to save battery power... it's always the #1 battery hog amongst all things.
