    No discernible change in battery life for me, however I have noticed my phone automatically resetting for no apparent reason since the upgrade. It's pissing me off.

    I "upgraded" the OS on both my girlfriend's and my own phone on the 19th to 4.7.1.61. I did mine through the DM and hers OTA. We are both now suffering from severely reduced battery life. Has anyone else experienced this "new feature"?
    I, too, have been experience terrible battery life since I upgraded to 4.7.1.61. I used to make it through the whole day on one charge, no problem--now I get a low battery warning by 1pm.

    I have noticed that Networks was set to Global after the upgrade, and have set it back to 1XEV thanks to the comments on this forum. Did that help?

    Every install is different, I cease to be amazed. If anyone is having battery issues I would highly recommend OS 5.0 and a subsequent hybrid.
    agreed

    i took my phone off charger at 6am and now it is almost 4pm

    my battery is ... 85% and ive been texting and emailing all morning, making phone calls and playing on my facebook app.

    I found .61 to be an all around downgrade from .53. Battery life, call quality, signal stability, system speed, freezing... all are worse for me. The only good thing was it irritated me enough that I finally upgraded to .230 with a hybrid. This is a real upgrade :-)
