    I concur with the majority here, battery life is decreased since the ICS update, for me only one day. I notice a HUGE difference. Have the Maxx, I can only imagine how little battery life non-Maxx owners are getting...

    I'd give it a few days and see if it gets better. I was a soak tester and thought my first few days of battery performance were much worse too. Things seemed to have improved now and it is at least where it used to be if not better.

    Some things to consider:
    As with any new update the curiosity factor is high so most will be exploring new features and using the phone more so battery life will drop off more quickly.

    Some older apps you may be using may not be fully optomized for ICS and causing battery drain.

    "Media" may be trying to upload new photos, music, etc if you use motocast.

    I also found that manually disabling facebook (read that tip somewhere else) seems to help.

    Turn it off tonight (or the next time) when you charge it. See if that helps.

    Hope that helps.

    Ok at least I'm not alone hopefully it gets better I love ICS my phone seems to run smoother and faster just concerned on battery I could go a couple of days without a charge..... I did notice my 3g is fixed my network extender was the issue I was showing a 1x until I reset the network extender all is fine there. So that might help on battery so its not searching for the stronger signal between wifi or 3g.

    Not usually one to 'pile on', but my battery life is down significantly as well. And no, I'm not using it any more than before ICS

    I've notice the battery on my MAXX draining faster as well. While I'm loving ICS I am hoping for improvement on the battery.

    How do you get your phone on 3G when its no longer an option to select?

    Try taking a look at lux dash it does a good job of controlling auto brightness and allows the user to set customer levels bases on the ambient light. I have noticed though that the range of brightness in ics is larger...meaning the dimmest setting is darker than gingerbread

    So for all of you with the drop in battery life, make sure you change your network setting to cdma/lte...the default was global. I changed this setting when I first got the update and my battery life was at least on par with gingerbread. Give that a try and see if this helps at all

    I did a restore and this seemed to fix my battery drain. I now get about 2 days of good use.
