As I mentioned, I'm dealing with other battery drain issues. But I can say after a couple weeks I'm pretty certain it has made no significant difference in daily battery life.

I'm trying something else right now to try to figure out my post-update battery drain issue (not to derail the thread, but wanted to mention this within the scope of my overall battery problems). This is a shot in the dark and I don't see how it would matter, but I charged my phone yesterday evening without the Otterbox on (happened to be already off so I could remove the back to provide battery info to ATT). Right now I have 14 hours off the battery, 3.5 hours of screen time, and my battery is still at 58%. So I'm on pace for the 22-26 hours with 6 hours of screen time I was getting before the update (around the time of my last update my battery life decreased dramatically, to where I was only getting 12-15 hours and 3 hours screen time).

I'm wondering if there is any chance that the Otterbox could impact charging? Or maybe using the white cable over time has gotten the charge/battery back on track?

I assumed there was a problem with the update. Then again, the last 58% of this battery may drain quickly and I won't wind up getting 24+ hours and 6 hours of screen time.

Either way, I'm confused about what is causing this, like I said, I assumed it was the update, but if I wind up getting 24+ hours on this charge like I was before, maybe it is related to the Otterbox or charger?

Whatever the case, I hope it keeps giving me 6 hours of screen time. That is what I expect out of the phone now because for the first few weeks, that is what I got consistently.
Now that it's been another 5 days, have you noticed anymore trends re: OEM white cable/plug charging vs. non-OEM and in vs. out of the case?
