    I've noticed my cpu has been working harder trying to do the things it used to do with less effort because some apps aren't playing nice with each other but with each day as I figure out what is what it is getting better. Friday night I was getting frequent app alerts from Watch Dog that apps, system processes and other things were surpassing the 50% cpu usage threshold I'd set but I've only gotten 1 since yesterday and it happened when I force killed Sense this morning. Whether my battery ever lives up to the hype I can't say but I have found a reboot or 2 a day as well as checking apps settings and force killing things here and there are helping cut down on the cpu usage, which is helping the battery life and running temperature of it.
    I'd prefer not to have to do the added work of working around an "upgrade" but with Android fragmentaion it's a something that will have to be done until everything is on Jelly Bean,Melon, Peach Cobbler or whatever and no manufacturers and/or carriers are allowed to add their stuff. For now it's that or ios and I'll go back to a dumbphone and desktop before ios again

    I agree with MBM. At first my battery life was HORRIBLE, even in idle. After a factory reset and some time to sync it has got a little better, especially on idle. I can set my phone down and not touch it....come back an hr later and it's only lost 3% (if on wifi). Time will tell but I'm guessing battery life will be comparable with GB.

    My personal Rezound the battery life seems very hit and miss, today with minimal usage I used less that 7% in 4 hours, yesterday it was more like 20% with similar usage. I still haven't been able to put my finger on the battery drainer yet, but I will...

    On my work Rezound, which has had less than 15 apps installed ever in it's life, the battery life has increased noticeably over Gingerbread, leading me to believe that ICS is not the real problem, but misbehaving apps is the battery drainer.

    PLEASE post back when you find it. I will do the same if I find any major fixes. I did find Maps was waking my phone often in the background with screen off but for minimal amounts of time at a time. And "media" ,whatever that is, is using the most battery according to GSam and "downloads" is what it's doing. I keep force closing but it opens back up.

    Will do... I have also noticed that Maps seems to be waking the phone a lot, and activating the GPS, and the amount of power it seems to draw for such a short time seems very high, will try to look at that too. Might try uninstalling updates and disabling for a bit, but it's usage seems consistent across both of my phones, and only one is having moderate, inconsistent battery drain issues, the other one I have noticed the battery life has increased significantly.

    I think the battery use is higher. I've had to charge my phone more often, and It gets hot.more often.

    I haven't gotten the latest OTA because i flashed the first leak back in march, but i would say that my battery life got much better with ICS over GB. Still hard to make a whole day with much use, but it was better. Seems like i used to have to charge at work, but after flashing the leak, i was able to get home with maybe 15% battery left. A difference of maybe 20-30% i would think. Ballparking as a layman so don't beat me up.
