    ICS has caused major battery drain

    Anyone else noticing a major drain since ICS?
    LTE kills my battery.
    Wifi keeps dropping.
    Let-CMDA keep dropping signal.
    No push or pulls are running. All manual.
    Deleted more apps than anyone should need to do!
    Is this a lemon install for me?
    Pls offer some suggestions -oither than buying a new SamsungIII LOL

    Yup i had the same problem when i had the leak version in it too. I tried a lot of things like battery calibration and letting it die and charge it but nothing. Ics is a battery killer. Other problems i have are:

    Screen gets really hot after some heavy usage. I even had an alert about the screen temperature. Never had a problem like that with GB.
    Scree won't always time out when I'm in a call. Very annoying.
    Automatic brightness its weird. Screen gets really bright or dark in any lighting.
    Keyboard is inaccurate. I'll be misspellings a lot now.

    Hit or miss it seems, I charged my phone 4:00pm (yesterday) it is now 8:12pm and I am at 60% battery. I downloaded ICS about 9am this morning so that used battery in itself.

    This phone is Amazing. It was in sleep mode overnight via smart actions.

    My battery life has shortened dramatically as well. Lasted about 4 hours from 100% to 0% with almost no usage (wifi on, screen off, idling). And when I check the battery usage charts it says Media is using 87% of my battery, everything else <4%. Also it's taking forever to charge when it's turned on.

    Yeah, I've noticed the battery drains faster. I'm sure a fix is coming. For now, keep your chargers with you. I always have one around.

    Folks, most people who've upgraded to ICS via the Over The Air update (OTA), to version .211 have been less than impressed. There is however an alternative for you that will get you to the latest "leaked" official update version .215 (not yet released by Verizon/Motorola), and you will see much better battery life as well as a large number of other issues resolved. Frankly it is highly confusing as to why they haven't actually released the .215 version as an official OTA update, since it's far better than the .211 that's out there now.

    Go to http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...classroom.html and join in on the fun, read and learn. You will not be disappointed. MattyP (one of my "students") has created the thread and you will see myself and many of the really knowledgeable members in there all working to get people moved to .215.

    Good luck!

    Hi Foxkat....battery still awful.
    1. After Moto ICS upgrade, battery quickly drains
    2. Installed Matys 215 Leak, hoping to solve issue, but now battery dies sooner!
    3. Tested last night, full battery, Smartactions/sleep disabled, all data on, with 4g. Result, completely DEAD battery 8 hours later. Sad!
    If I factory reset, will 215 be there, or will I need reinstall? Do u think Factory reset will help? Should I clear cache first -before reset and test at that pint?
    Any help, ideas, appreciated.
