    Mine too. With every update the battery life has gotten worst. On the plus side I haven't had any 3G or 4G drops. I was able to use FoxFi uninterrupted for 3 hours last night. I usually get the "mobile data signal lost" A LOT. So this update is bittersweet.

    I have also noticed that it has gotten a bit worst since the update I used to get a good 8 hrs without a charge performing basic tasks like checking email and facebook every now and then and now I'm lucky if I make thru 6.5 hrs...

    My battery life is great. The day I got the update I user my phone up until it died. Then I charged it completely. Now I get an extra 2 to 3 hours of battery life.

    Just installed the up date today so I don't have enough time to make a better judgment but it certainly isn't worse. The only thing I've noticed is 3g/4g shows a lot higher signal strength.

    Mine seems to be worse too. I don't understand how the update can make some phones better and some worse. It just blows my mind.

    A number of factors like what apps you have installed when you get the OTA can have a bearing on how it effects your individual phone.

    Being able to hold the 4G signal would be a battery killer since 4G uses more battery than 3G

    I'm not sure if this will help but it has helped other users who have reported worse battery life after the last update. Power your phone off and put it on the provided charger overnight or until fully charged. Then reboot and monitor battery. This simple step has help others...I have no idea why.

    You might also try a soft reset...hold down volume down button and power button for about 10 seconds until the phone reboots. It will reboot into normal operations but the process is similar to a battery pull.
