Default How is Your Battery Life With iOS 5?

I usually turn off Bluetooth as well as location services&nbsp;when I'm not going to be using&nbsp;them for awhile, but that's basically it. How about you? Any problems with iOS 5 and decreased battery life? What have you done to improve it?</p>

Last night I put my iPhone 4 in airplane mode with 46% power. I woke up this morning to a dead phone. I noticed before putting it to sleep last night that it seemed kind of slow. I suppose an app was running all night. Wish I could control-alt-del and review processor usage. My guess it either iMessage or integrated Twitter, as the slowdown seemed to happen after using one of those (iMessage to send a 15 second video, Twitter to post some pics). I killed all active apps today and it seems to be depleting slower. The solution is probably a bit of tinkering on my part and some bug fixes that will inevitably be released. I'm an early adopter so I expect some challenges.
