    So i upgraded to ICS, and now notice i get barely 1hr of web browsing before my battery is 20% after full charge. I have screen on auto, and only 3g enabled. I saw something about a .215 leak, is that a fix to the terrible battery since ics? before my battery rocked, now cant do anything. I am going to calibrate my battery, but really want a fix for this, its terrible. Id rather not root or use a custom rom.
    Thank you

    I'm on the .215 leak, and my battery life is great. It's charging up now after getting over 32 hours on a charge with regular usage. I'm not saying you should or shouldn't root, but rooting allows you to freeze all the bloatware apps that do nothing but burn up battery life. :)

    EDIT: And have you tried a Factory Data Reset? Starting with a clean slate after an upgrade is always a good thing.

    I don't use a ROM, never have. I only rooted to freeze bloatware and free tethering. Never have flashed a ROM. :)

    Go into your Menu Button > System Settings > About Phone ... just to be sure what version you are on.

    Are you posting here from your phone or from your PC?
