Having very few problems with Ice Cream.....it does seems to have taken a step back in some respects, UI is not as friendly. I hate the email and the contacts update, why change that? it was fine before.
My phones battery will last around 10hrs even when the phone is off....previously I could get 2 days easily.
No GPS, No Wifi.....I have turn off 3G, been through all the settings and can't find the culprit, something is drawing power....kinda wish I didn't upgrade as there are no real benefits that I can see, apart from a bigger OS number. Wow I have the latest...fool me.
Word of warning: Don't be so keen to have the latest on your phone, if it ain't broke don't fix it....I want to go back to gingerbread, but the process doesn't look simple.

The battery usage is actually better on ICS than it was on Gingerbread, there were a lot of O2 users and there have been a few vodafone users that have reported the battery problem. All you need to do is fully charge and then discharge the battery, after 2-3 cycles ICS optimizes the battery and you should notice an improvement from Gingerbread.
I agree with you the look of ICS it really isn't much of an improvement but the good thing about Android is if you want to customise the stock apps there is plenty of choice of alternative apps, most of the improvements to ICS have been "Under the Bonnett"
Give the battery advice a go and see how you get on.
Hope this helps
