This is why I'm waiting for 8.1. Had 8.0 since launch day, and apart from some minor bugs, the actual OS is quite stable. It seems the 8.0.2 problems only affect a relatively small number of people, but I'd rather not take my chances.

Absolutely nothing wrong with my Plus. The next software upgrade includes Apple Pay. I do not need the update for performance purposes.

Is take it back then. If a completely clean restore didn't work it could be hardware related. I have not seen this commonly reported with 8.0.2.

Same here. 8.0 is working for what I need so I'm sticking with it till the major 8.1 comes along..

When on 8.0.0 it was perfect
It almost certainly wasn't the update itself that caused the issue. You should take the phone to Apple and see about getting it replaced.

If this was a widespread issue, there'd be an 8.0.2-gate thread dozens of pages long. Perhaps the update merely exposed a defect in your phone.

One last thought: Have you tried restoring it as new from iTunes, rather than through the phone? iPhone 6/6 Plus users who updated to 8.0.1 via iTunes didn't encounter the same issues that OTA updaters did.

When stuff like this s happens it's usually the phone communicating with the router. Software related on the phone for your router. Try different bands in you wifi too. I get the same wifi throughput on my 6 plus as my Galaxy S4.

Maybe try DFU right store.
I am seeing a wifi glitch on 8.0.2, it loses wifi every couple of days. Turning phone off then on sorts it out. My wifi AP is the latest extrem and the plus the is on ac.

8.0.2 seems more stable than 8.0, and it enables Healthkit apps to work. Overall, it seems pretty stable to me.
