The new processor takes more power and they didn't increase the battery capacity much at all.
Here's one study of it:
So it's not a huge difference. Mainly the 3G and camera eat more battery than before.

I haven't timed it out yet, but I used it pretty heavily the past two days and still had 15-25% battery left each day. Less on Tuesday as I was downloading tons of apps and playing with it all day. Yesterday I spent a good bit of time fooling around online inbetween teaching a couple classes and listened to music while working etc. and had 25% left at bedtime. And that was probably lower than usual due to using it in an area with a spotty wifi signal on campus for an hour or two where it kept dropping in and out.
So battery life is fine for me. I charge it every night as I stick in in a speaker dock on my night stand and listen to music.

Apple's admitted there is a bug in iOS5 that's causing battery drain issues for some people.
Seems fine for me. Haven't noticed any difference on my iPad2. iPhone 4s battery life seems good as well, but since it's my first iPhone I can't compare to older models.

One thing I have noticed is that Disc Drivin' seems to get stuttery some times. Not sure what that's about. Probably just needs an update because my other games and apps seem to work fine.

Also, does anybody else really, really hate not being able to switch between 3G and Edge? Not only does Edge use less battery, I also get better Edge reception in my apartment. I've been getting more dropped calls since I got the 4S and it's kinda pissing me off.

Usually have 20-40% battery left at night.
