    None here, I'm actually seeing some improvement. Went 13 hours (with only wi-fi on) just doing basic texting and some phone calls and was at 90% still left.

    I've seen zero change in battery usage on mine. Been running it since the first hour it was available and the last few days my battery has been about 20% at the end of a 16 hour day just like before the update.

    My android system is using 80% in the first hour off the charger and I'm already down 10% battery...is this GPS maybe?

    Seems slightly worse, but Ive been on it alot more since the update. Once it settles back in and I go back to using it how I normally do, Im sure I will make it my usual 2 days before charging.

    Turning off my gps has helped, i dont understand why i never turned it off before. Im trying to wipe the cache to see it that helps. Found these instructions on how to do it.

    • Boot into recovery
    • Press and hold Power, Choose "Restart" option
    • When screen turns off, press and hold Volume Down and Power
    • When the white HBOOT screen appears, use the volume button to move down to “RECOVERY.”
    • Press the Power button to select “RECOVERY.”
    • When the triangle and exclamation appears, hold the Volume Up and Power button at the same time.
    • Using the volume button, scroll down to “Wipe cache partition” and select it.
    • Select "Reboot system now"

    Not sure; I'm at 41% after 13+ hours; probably consider my usage light: keeping up with 3email accounts; some mapping, some Kindle reading; some GPS tracking; (no music or video streaming)

    When the triangle and exclamation mark comes up, I couldn't get the second menu to come up, how long do you hold volume up and power. The soft keys flash like 20 times and the phone just reboots normally.

    I believe i may have figured out whats causing my drain. My phone gets pretty good battery life at home on wifi..but at work i dont get the best signal. Wonder if my problem is the same as this thread http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...servation.html

    Doesn't this seem like a really percentage of battery use from phone radio? I don't remember my phone using anywhere near that much before. My battery is dying much faster after the update

    10hr 43min off charge and I'm at 80% with some Reddit, Flipboard, and Facebook at lunch and regular sync for emails, weather, ect.
    Only on Wifi about 1 hr. Battery usage is about the same for me. Signal showing appears lower but my quality hasn't changed so I think it's
    just representing a more accurate signal strength on the bars.

    I did a system reset, kept music/pics, and so far that has shown some good improvement. I also obviously once again disabled everything app wise I don't use.

    Obviously it was a bit annoying to have to set everything up to my liking again, but oh well.

    I actually just had this happen not too long ago. It said I was in "voice roaming" and I have no idea how. I've had my phone disconnect a few times, but I thought it was my friend's.

    I've been hit by it too, although it seems very intermittent. I've seen the little circular arrows stay in the top bar for hours, can't find a reason why as I haven't changed my usage of the device. I keep a charger in the car, and have one at the office, so it hasn't been more than an annoyance yet.

    I took the reset and rebuild route. I also turned on "Sleep Mode (turns off data connection during long periods of inactivity)" in Power. My phone is doing very well now; much better than before the update.

    Sleep mode helped me out some too.

    I changed my network setting on my phone from global to lte/cma. (settings=> mobile data => perfered network.) a few hours ago and it seems better on battery drain. Only more time will tell.
