    I've been experiencing great battery life. Went through 2 cycles and since then its been amazing. Going in 21 hours with about 45% battery left with moderate to heavy use

    Restart the phone. Then go through a few battery cycles. If battery is still draining do a factory reset. Then wait a couple of battery cycles. This should get you back to normal. Sometimes it just takes a little time to relearn your habits. Call it phone magic.

    No you're not the only one, it's pissing me off. I've done everything suggested aside from a reset which I don't want to do.

    Just ran for 23hrs and was messing around with Google Now, on Twitter, Instagram, few phone calls, 2 1/2+ hrs of screen on time, etc. and also have location settings on too (if I didn't my battery would probably run till tomorrow mid-day). Time heals all my friends!

    And right now on my current battery, still on 100% after 1hr 45min (pretty light use though).

    I'm convinced that every software update requires a hard reset.

    I just got the update this morning and my battery went down fast. Normally my battery life will be somewhat bad for a week or so after an update. So if you all are having a problem with your battery life give it a little time.

    For those having battery issues either before or after JB (mine started with the LI3 update) go to settings and check the battery usage.
    Seems Media is way to high for me. Anybody else notice this?

    Screen shots that show awake time and battery usage..
    I went in and found the com.sec.android.providers.downloads and did a force stop and clear data before the pic was taken.. seems to have helped.

    I was told corrupt files on your SD card can be the culprit here - have you reformatted your sd card? Are you still/have you gotten the high usage from MEDIA again?
    (If you notice, I posted above you about the same issue.)

    I have not noticed any change in battery life after the update. Seems pretty decent compared to my EVO 4G with Seideo extended batt. I've been impressed that the thin factory battery lasts as long as it does.

    Updated to jelly bean 3 days ago and my battery life is now crap.

    Would it make a difference which model you have or the network?

    8gb on orange network for me :-(

    Wish I still had ICS

    Some people don't think it works but I have noticed a big difference.....changing the Mobile Network settings back to CDMA when not in a LTE area has helped a lot.
