    I haven't noticed anything too out of the ordinary at all. Battery life seems to be about what it was before. :shrug:

    Just as a point of reference, my 4 has been sitting here in my office next to me for the past 6 hours. I'm currently down to 95% battery. It may be that's only because my wireless router is right here also so the phone isn't using much oomph to get to the network. I dunno.

    Tom :)macwave:... charged up...)

    Yeah, I charged mine totally on the drive into work, and in the same amount of time (and use) I'm still at 94%. There's clearly something going on there with yours....

    Full disclosure, I do not have my wifi enabled right now (I don't like to be on-network at the office).

    I used the Google YouTube app straight away as soon as it came out as I've never liked Apple's version. Maps, I haven't used but I relied on the Google version quite a lot. Street view, as Chris said, was really useful to me so I don't know why they haven't kept Google Map's simply for that.

    I can say for the first time in a long time I am NOT impressed with Apple. This is almost as bad as when Vista when rushed!

    I'm surprised how much I use google maps, It's mainly for work.
    I can't believe apple can just remove something that must be greatly used and replace it with a very outdated alternative.
    I said to someone earlier, it like buying a car with an added extra which you really want for it to be removed buy the dealers at a later date.

    Agree very very poor. Posted this earlier. Was in Brighton in the rain looking for Pizza Hut. Luckily we saw it rather than following the directions on the phone ( we go this a lot in unfamiliar towns) apple was out by a country mile [​IMG]

    This was taken inside Pizza Hut !

    Crazy, I know it's only one thing on the phone, but boy has it made me regret updating my phone. I haven't even done my iPad.

    My map struggled to get the correct location but after few minutes it reverted to the correct location.

    Hopefully Apple will be able to update the map quickly.

    Stop press. :mental:

    Yesterday evening, I was just sitting in my chair and picked up my iPhone to quickly check email.
    Battery display indicated that it was down to about 40%. And I hadn't been using it at all yesterday. :shocked:

    So, last night before it went on the charger, I rebooted the whole thing. Then checked to make sure all my settings were as I wanted them. So far today, it seems to be holding it's charge.

    We'll see how it goes today. :fingers:

    Tom :)macwave:... out of energy...)
