    I'm sick and tired of yalls bitching. 8.0.2 runs wonderfully on an iPhone 6. No bugs. No issues at all. Battery life is just fine. You guys need to just relax

    I honestly love it so much, maybe more than when iOS7 was introduced. Just the swipe-to-actions along are worth it. With all the widgets and all the little new things, iOS is finally caught up.

    It is nice to hear it's good for some people, probably most. I'm still on 8.0 because of everything I've read here this far.

    I'm with OP. 8.0.2 seems to be a sweet spot with the iPhone 6. No issues at all.

    Hate to be the fly in the 8.0.2 ointment, but is anyone seeing safari slowdowns on an iPad 4?

    Since updating, many page refreshes are hesitant. And just 10 mins ago, Safari completely froze on me for about 60 seconds. The OS was still alive, but safari was completely unresponsive.

    Yep. Agreed. I'm not experiencing issues either.

    I'm still having a few issues with iMessages and Wi-fi but I haven't been able to nail it down to the iOS update.

    Could be the third party keyboard (yes, it still freezes in iMessage if I'm moving between apps too quickly). I had a complete network outage on Saturday. No wi-fi or LTE. A restart of the phone fixed the network issues.

    I'm on a 5S.

    What carrier? My whole family has iPhone 6s on Verizon and the cell service is pretty much useless. It was absolutely perfect on 8.0.

    Thank you Tim Cook for taking time out of your busy to sell us all on the masterpiece known as iOS 8. :p

    Because if one person isn't experiencing bugs, then by golly, everybody else must be making it up!

    Equally, because some people are experiencing bugs, everyone must.

    Not when playback info randomly appears and disappears on my car's Bluetooth.

    These are basic functions, Apple. What's next? You break people's cellular connections? :eek:

    On my 128 GB iPad air 8.0.2 is giving me double the download speeds (140 Mbps on our fiber optic network) compaired to my new 6 plus with just 8.0. Have held off on the phone because of what i read, but two others here have not had trouble, my ipad air does not, my iphone 6 plus is not having problems in 8.0 so I suspect it will be fine in 8.0.2.

    My iPhone 6 is running very smoothly on iOS 8.0.2 - especially the battery life! It had its initial charge on Sunday around 2pm and today, the phone is still holding the same charge and is sitting on my desk here on 67%. It has about an hours usage during the day and the rest of the time, it stays in standby. :cool:

    Best feature for me is the way you can reply to messages directly from the lockscreen (without having to unlock the phone and go into the messages app) - blimmin awsome!

    I'm glad that they finally fixed things up a little. They were going through a little bit of a rough patch.

    Prior to 8, I was using Safari exclusively. I'm now using Mercury, because pages load slow, it's laggy and glitchy. Was hoping 8.02 would fix it, but no such luck.

    Interestingly, on 8.02 my 5s is fine.

    Ok after following for weekend and two days this week, I have found my ipad air 128 no problems with 8.0.2. My 6 plus 128 no problems with factory 8.0 so I put 8.0.2 and it runs as good as factory 8 no problems so far. Have not backed up though to itunes yet so I could go back to my 8.0 backup.

    Speeds on speed test no improvement at work high speed fiber (60 Mbps down average, 30 Mbps up, this is compared to my iPad air 128 with 140 Mbps down and 30 Mbps up on 8.0.2.

    More improvements:

    Ok more to report as time goes on and and retest our fiber optic connection I am getting faster speeds now with my iphone 6 plus 60-70 Mbps down (still 140 on ipad air with 8.0.2) and now 52 Mbps up with 6 plus compared to 30 earlier and 30 on ipad air? Testing again getting 50 down and 52 up so my up is improved down is getting nearly doubled since I put 8.0.2 on my iphone 6 plus? Hmmm

    try using safari on an iPhone 5 running 7.1.2 and compare it real time with an iPhone 5s running 8.0.2 sitting next to it.

    The iPhone 5 using 7.1.2 loads pages noticeably faster than the 5s running 8.0.2

    Being that the iPhone 6 processor is only about 20% faster than the 5s, I'd like to see a real time comparison with a iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5 (w/ 7.1.2) running safari.

    The 5s processor benches almost 2X the speed as the one in the iPhone 5.

    Yes, 8.0.2 is Better!!

    This has been a bumpy ride and if I had to do it all over again I would have stayed on 7.0 Since I upgrades to 8.0 I had to restore my phone and then when 8.0.1 came I had to restore again, then 8.0.2 and I restored again, finally it is working smoothly.

    Since upgrading to 8.0.2 things have been much better on my end, iPhone 5. The laggy scrolling I had in the music app and other areas is now completely gone. It almost seems like 8.0.2 has brought me back to how everything was working on 7.0

    I use to look forward to new updates but now I kinda cringe when a new one is released thinking oh no what is going to happen to my phone now.
