    Has anyone else noticed a reduced battery life after the last update from Verizon? Also my wifi just doesn't seem as strong either. Hopefully the Jelly Bean update in a few months fixes this issue. I hate going from not having to charge all day to charging up in the middle of the day.

    I haven't experienced any reduced battery life or problems with WiFi since the latest update. Maybe a rogue app?

    Turns out Weather Channel App was running gps 24/7, because I had set a home location. Turned that option off. Much better now.

    I'm not sure if I should go through this Verizon update!
