    My only noticeable problems are the battery issue and auto brightness no longer works. It just stays at whatever brightness I had before I checked it off. The browser I can set it's own brightness, but when I set that to auto it defaults back to the setting established in the Display menu.

    It is funny hearing all these complaints/problems. So many people were trying to do whatever they could to get this early ...they just couldn't wait!

    I have experienced reduced battery life and signal (at least it shows less signal).

    Received mine weeks ago but was still eating for the ota on my wife's phone. Last night I cleared the cache on the google services framework then pulled her battery and checked for update and it was there! I like the update

    I received the update a few days ago, and after some messing around, I have gotten battery life to be stellar on standby, but it's still almost unusable otherwise.

    Leaving my phone unplugged overnight, total battery loss was 10%. Using Dolphin HD to do some web browsing this morning, I lost 35% of my battery in 22 minutes, which seems to be par for the course now.

    Any "active" use of the phone drains at a rate of at least 1% a minute if not worse. Screen brightness is at like 15%, WIFI, GPS, BT, etc are all disabled.

    I hate that we have to go to such lengths to alter the way we use our phones, or worse, alter the capabilities of our phone and NOT use some features that make smart phones smart, such as WiFi, GPS, BT, etc.. all just to be able to USE the phone w/o it draining the battery..

    I updated to the original ICS when the update came out a month or so ago, but have since gone back to Gingerbread.. now I keep getting the update notifications for ICS 4.0.4 - which I will NOT be making the mistake and updating again.. I'm sticking with GB, even if that means I have to keep hitting the "remind me later" button to dismiss the ICS notification.

    Battery drain is significant. Guess I need to do the factory reset and battery pull.

    Any noticeable improvement from the factory reset?

    I got the update last night. I'm still undecided on if i like it or not. The loss of foxfi really sucks.

    Don't know yet; it's my wife's phone so I started with just a battery pull. Will check it this evening. If no improvement then next step is a factory reset.

    The battery pull significantly improved the battery drain problem. I'm pleased with the ICS update so far.
