    Same here, going to 3g only made a huge difference. No 4g in my immediate area so nothing lost by doing this. Wonder though why 4g on ICS would use more battery than on GB.

    In my opinion, battery life for the Droid 4, before ICS, wasn't good; now it is abysmal. With no possibility of a battery upgrade or replacement, I regard the D4 as substandard.

    If there isn't an improvement soon, I'll leave the Droid/Android world for ever.

    Hmmm I get 14 hours or so with wifi off and when on a good wifi I can get 30 or so.

    Have you tried booting into recovery and wiping cache? After ics update mine was terrible to but after wiping cache it was much better.
