iPhone 4S Battery Life

I just got my iPhone 4S last Friday. I have been encountering iPhone Battery Drainage problem. It drained off faster than my iPhone 4. I have disabled notification services, location services, icloud, siri and also time zone setting as these are all suggested in the APPLE discussion forum. But yet the phone battery drainage problem is still there. Before I sleep, the iPhone battery is 100%, 6 hours later, the battery life dropped to 74%. I did all I can to the phone but still having problem. My friend's iPhone 4S does not have this problem. So is it hardware or software prob?

Did anyone encounter the same problem? Should I make an exchange to the telco. Will they give me a new set or refurbished set?

Any advice?

Try doing a reboot or even fresh install of the OS. Before you go to bed, make sure there are no apps running in the background.

PS : I don't own a 4S.
