    Updated day 1 and no battery drain issues here. Google Now was the only thing I missed from my old Galaxy S3. So happy to see it on the iP5.

    I left it on all afternoon yesterday while traveling from city to city in my neck of the woods to see what cards Google Now would show and to test battery life. I didn’t see any noticeable difference in battery life on my 4S. The only difference I noticed was the number of cards depending on my location. More populated areas showed more cards. Less populated areas showed lass cards. So, if you live in the boonies, you probably won’t see many cards delivered to your device.

    Within 2 hours of updating on the day it was released my battery dropped 40%! It caused my location services to get stuck and after going through settings: Location Services it was still stuck. I had to delete Google Search all together. Lucky for me I stay away from the Google Eco system for the most part anyway. I’m really shocked that Google is claiming no responsibility. Unless, they are using this as a ploy to get people over to Android. If it is it won’t work!

    I live in the boonies and Now is DRAINING my batt. I had to delete it. Horrible power management from a Google App.

    I have been saying and hoping for this for months.

    Maybe there’s another contributing factor. I used it all afternoon yesterday and didn’t see any issue with battery life. I’m sure Google will look into it further if people keep complaining. But your probably right, I do think Google’s using the feature to entice people to switch to Android. I don’t blame them. It’s a great service.

    Yeah, it’s a no brainer really.
