So far, it appears that this update has been a major downgrade for my phone! Hopefully those who monitor and control the situation will be able to rectify the situation!
You know this may not be the case with yours but when I upgraded my battery usage was terrible. I didn't notice that the phone was uploading every photo and video to dropbox after the update. So that is what was actually killing the battery. Of course on yours it probably would have shown Data...might just be something to look into though.
