    Same here :(

    I've noticed a dramatic DECREASE in battery performance since the update. I was really happy with it before. I have no idea what's causing it.

    My battery life was absolutely awesome prior to this update...

    Only way to roll back is to reflash the ROM.
    That's what HTC told me when I was having issues upgrading as I asked them. So if you've got your goldcard use it!

    I've not had problems with battery life on mine. It's being going a day and a half and only half the battery life has gone.
    I do suspect that the battery usage will go up as the wifi/mobile signal has probably had the power "boosted" by the software upgrade to hopefully resolve the connectivity issues.
    Leaving wifi on when I do go to bed I do find drains quite a bit of power.

    As per my earlier post, before the update it was awesome, easily lasting 2 days, thats with WiFi or Data enabled 24/7.

    Now I'm losing up to approx 8% every 45min with the phone just idling. I don't know what's wrong...!!

    Before I used to lose 2%, perhaps 3% overnight..at a maximum, now I'm losing up to 10% overnight. Quite unbelievable.

    You can imagine how the battery drops whilst I'm on call :mad:

    I wish I could roll back to pre-OTA update...but that seems like a big hassle, so I'm hoping FroYo will arrive soon...

    Last night I noticed mine dropped a good 30% during the night (7hrs) after I had fully charged it before going to bed.
    I did however activate friends stream last night and I do believe this to be the culprit.
    Fully charge my phone this morning and removed friend stream and here I am a good 8hrs later and my phone is still fully charged...
    Go figure, coincidence?

    I had enough of the battery problems, especially considering my battery before the update was brilliant.

    I know its not the solution that will suit all, but I rooted my Legend this morning and applied a better ROM (NeonMod) and I have got my brilliant battery life back:

    It's up and running for 3hrs31min, with data on, WiFi on, Bluetooth on (I wanted to test how the battery will cope) and battery is at 99%. This is what I was used to before that troublesome update :).
