    Update

    I received the update. But, I'm not seeing any much of a difference. My battery life is def. not any better. Maybe i'm doing something wrong? I don't have Bluetooth, GPS, or WIFI on. I took all of my widgest off of my screen. I have the brightness pretty low. I charge my phone in the middle of the day, and stick it on the charger at night. Any tips? Or helpful hints?

    What apps do you have that auto-fetch data, and how frequently do they do it? (i.e. email or weather)

    What about Google Sync? You could try going through settings and disabling EVERYTHING you can find, and see how the battery does then. If it's still crappy, consider a hard reset. If not, try to determine the culprit.

    Battery usage ranges from person to person. If you use your phone heavily then you will probably see an increase in your battery. Before the update my battery would last about 5 hours now it last about 8-12 hours. What do you do on your phone. (lots us usage, apps, games, text, internet, email?)

    Turn off both My Location sources in the Location and Compass settings (especially the Use Wireless Networks option). That made the biggest difference for me, by far.
