    Did mine Thursday evening. Battery went from 98% to 1% overnight(12 hours). Mediaserver usage was 59%. The only thing I had done after upgrading was play a couple of games of Angry Birds. Have tried it since and still same but if you Force stop the App after finishing game it solves problem. Hope this helps somebody else.

    The more I've heard about ICS on the Arc S the more I'm thinking of not upgrading :(

    Has anyone else tried ICS? Is it worth upgrading or does it slow down the phone and run down the battery more quickly. As it can not be reversed I am nervous of trying it.

    There are few who leave an iPhone 4 and try and adopt the Android... Well few that I know of anyways. I am one of them.

    I bought an arc s with the 2.3 running - it had its issues but the experience was comparable to the iPhone. I have upgraded to ICS last week and everything seems very unresponsive and slow. Something is not right, I think I will have to reset it and try a fresh.

    Does anyone have a better solution?

    The update looks pretty slick but battery life is suffereing. Cannot find out how to root 4.1.K.0.5 though, only 4.1.A.0.562, can any uk users help point me in the right direction with this please? Looking to root to give better control over the power and hopefully extend the battery life.

    I don't know if ICS is the main cause why my phone won't turn on and charge when my battery got emptied. I've updated my OS using Sony PC companion. If u xperienced the same, then it would probably be.

    I have upgraded. Battery drains rather quickly (I cannot compare since I bought the phone and immediately upgraded - with relatively low activity the battery runs out within 12 hours). But the main problem I have and I see lots of others complaining on the Internet is that the phone will not pair with my car's hands free bluetooth device.

    Since there are many who suffer from this, how do we get SONY to fix this?
