I have come to a conclusion. I feel there is a big in IOS5 for the 4s. A lot of people who get there iPhone 4s replaced sill complain about battery life. So it's clearly not the phone. It's the software. So I have decided not to return my phone. So far I have lost 4 percent in 20minutes usage Not great. Rather terrible. But stand by of 55minutes. Wi go off. But everything else is on. So what we have to do is wait for an update IOS 5.1 and see whether it fixes battery life.
I have done everything, restored, but in DFU mode then restore, factory reset has a new phone and still nothing is working. So this is why I feel it's. Software problem.
Please keep me informed whether there is a fix and let me know how your battery is doing.

4% in 20 minutes sounds around the same time as the 4...you did a good thing not to return it and wait and see what newer firmware will bring.. 5.0.1 though I doubt the battery life will change by much if at all

No, I dont think I will be buying it because for me there where not enough changes from the 4 to make it worth paying out £700.

But in previous devices we have had the same battery life problems that where promised to be fixed in firmware updates and never where

well the 4S is very good and even though the battery life is the same it still has other features worth upgrading to. what model/colour did you go for?

It's the software of iPhone 4s. So I have decided not to return my phone. So far I have lost 4 percent in 20minutes usage Not great. Rather terrible. But stand by of 55minutes. That's the true fact of iPhone 4s
