Just battery seems to be draining faster since the update and since my replacement phone. But before I decide what "faster" means, I could use some persepctive here from my forum friends. Here are my current stats as my battery runs down today and I return it to the charger:

Time since unplugged - 21 hours
Up time - 26 hours
Awake time - 3 and 1/2 hours
Battery life left - 26%

I'm worried because I seem to think that my awake time was closer to 6-7 hours before my battery got to this point pre-update and pre-replacement. So, your responses will help give me a reality check...and possibly give me something new to be frustrated about. But I guess the glass-half-full idea here is that these stats show that it's been 26 hours since my last random reboot!! :D
I use my phone for a lot more than you, I don't think my phone has went more than 12 hours unplugged since I purchased it, but I am a heavy user, I've managed to go from a full charge to 10% in less than 4 hours before.
My phone will go through phases that last a couple days where I will get good battery and bad battery life. I would suggest doing a battery pull and see if that helps, if that doesn't, try running your battery completely down then charging it.

But before you o any of that, make sure you have 4G turned off, I only get about 4 hours on standby if I have 4G on in a non 4G area. You may even want to switch to CDMA only if you're not going to be using a lot of data.

There are also two services that start with PVM and PVW or something like that, which can drain your battery life, I make a habit of checking the running services every morning in case my phone rebooted over night.
Thanks for the feedback on both counts. I think probably nothing is typical for most of us until all this rebooting and replacing settles. Here's hoping that the fix we were all expecting before finally makes the grade this time around...and soon!
I think that there are network issues that cause battery drain. Sometimes, my phone will last two days (running Tesla Coil with LeanKernel) and sometimes it can make it only a few hours with the same use. I think that the LTE network has "flaky" periods that cause battery drain.
