I've noted this in a couple of posts on PDAStreet.com.
The battery doesn't last at all. If I leave my 7750 in the cradle all day so that by the time I leave work it's at 100% then by the time I get up in the morning the battery is somewhere around 50-60%. And I'm not a big phone user. I usually enable DND once I get home.
I had installed the today screen freebie. It's a terrific app but it seems to have a heavy power requirement. I uninstalled that app and battery usage got much better but still not as good as V3.x performance.
Memory is also a PITA with V4:
I've seen some posts that mention you must have about 1.5MB free memory. I had a lot less than a meg free and when I deleted most of the messages it came up to about a meg or so. Vast improvement. Right now I have 723K free and it's tolerable, but slow.
