    Mine has went downhill as well since updating to ICS. I think this is a fairly widespread problem (from what I have read).

    Its my understanding that there is no way to turn off the lte radio, causing the phone to constantly search for a 4g network. Thus, causing more battery usage than normal.

    I am in a 4g area (normally always in 4g) and my battery life dropped. I used to be able to go two days between charges, now I need to recharge nightly or I will run out the following day early. It seemed the first day was fine, but after that, the battery life got worse!

    Agreed, same here. Always 4G in the area and battery was fine in Gingerbread. I tried lying to myself about the battery, but honestly, my phone seems no different than any other phone in terms of battery life.

    Big decrease in battery life on my RAZR, and I live in a city with great 4G coverage. It is what it is.

    Isn't this the same thing as doing *#*#4636#*#* then selecting "cdma auto (prl)" ?

    "CDMA only" takes away my 3g and replaces it with 1x. However it still turns blue and data still works. Not really sure what the 1x means as opposed to 3g?

    I was only on GB for about 2 days so I dont have a base line to go by but since being on ICS I am getting 2-3 days battery life. I am running stock ICS rooted with all the junk frozen.

    Maybe bloat ware is running in the background for me? For 2 days, how much screen time did you have on your phone?
