Mixed reception by who? You realize statistically that only like 1/10 people will take time to write a positive review but 9/10 people will write something negative. This sounds more like a perception issue.My iPhone is running great on 8.0.2 so with the mixed reception 8.1 is getting I'd rather trap my d1ck in a door than update.
That isn't typical of Apple really.It feels pretty comparable to 8.0.2. My biggest complaint is that my battery life is not as good. It isn't significantly lower but noticeable. I wonder if it is due to NFC being on constantly.
Sorry but that's like saying your debit card needs to be charged every night because it has NFC built in. I think you misunderstand how NFC works.It feels pretty comparable to 8.0.2. My biggest complaint is that my battery life is not as good. It isn't significantly lower but noticeable. I wonder if it is due to NFC being on constantly.
What tests have you conducted that prove that the Wifi speed drops are a direct cause of iOS 8.1 and not your router or radio interference?Not even the most basic system functions are working correctly - like wifi which is dropping to unusable speeds multiple times a day (iOS 8.1)
This OS is ruining the whole joy of having a new iPhone 6.
iOS 8 sucks big time.
Seriously?It feels pretty comparable to 8.0.2. My biggest complaint is that my battery life is not as good. It isn't significantly lower but noticeable. I wonder if it is due to NFC being on constantly.
Wow apparently all of us here are not NFC engineers. I suspect the minor difference you are seeing is the fact that there is some housekeeping going on and most likely you are fooling with it more checking out new and different features. Apparently NFC does not take much or any power (like ccards) but definitely a good thought as that is something that was added with 8.1.
Ya know I was thinking the same thing over the past few days. Wasn't sure if just update cleanup stuff or indexing or what but seems that battery was a little off. As you said not significant but noticeable. I was always amazed how long iP6 worked and stayed on 100% with really a lot of use with battery left over at the end of day. After updating from 8.1b2 to 8.1 release it didn't seem like it was quite like it was. This afternoon my wifes iP6 which was updated from 8.0.2 to 8.1 had about the exact standby and usage times as me and hers was on 99% and I was at 92% remaining. While that is not huge, it is 7% difference within 7 hr stdby/30min use on both. That sorta confirmed for me that something was off a little from where it was. So being that I upgraded from a beta version (which I never do) I decided to restore via iTunes and let iTunes backup/restore my data as well so it would be painless. Tonight it seems that the prior battery life is back like it was. Of course all this happened today so may be to early to tell but it definitely seems that the phone is performing like it was once again.
