    On my European unlocked i9100 running gingerbread, my battery fully recharged in less than 2 hours *while I was using it.* Since the ICS upgrade (using Kies), it takes about 4 hours to charge it if I'm using it string the charge period.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Also, my phone now runs much hotter than it did on gingerbread. Will this damage something in the phone?

    Thanks,
    Sandra

    Anyone? I'm very concerned with the heat problem.

    I've noticed it! On the other side, I feel the battery also drains slower...

    I'm not sure my battery drains any faster than before, but then, I've turned of several of the optional effects that drain batteries. e.g. haptic feedback, animated transition from one homescreen to the next, that sort of thing.

    Do you know whether the heat will hurt the phone?

    Today, I think the heat is caused by my wi-fi. Anyone else with a similar problem?

    I have noticed that my phone gets a lot hotter as well. My battery life is about 50 percent of what it use to be.

    Try a factory reset. You can backup and restore with Kies. I have read literally hundreds of posts where the poor battery life was solved following a software reset.

    I don't know why manufacturers don't make it a *requirement* to perform a wipe when updating software to a new major version.

    Deffinetly charges slower. Battery Deffinetly lasts longer. Mine has always gotten hot and I haven't noticed anything bad happening. You should be fine.

    Flash a custom kernel. Like Siyah. Much faster charging by far
