    So I have an iPhone 4, that for the most of the time has been on 4.3.3. I've messed around a bit with beta 5 and 6, but I can't tell if it's just my perceptions or not that the betas are quicker than 4.3.3.

    The seemingly snappiness of it and the awesome notification center are the main reasons I use it.

    Wondering if I can get help deciding between which version to use, so to hopefully help you help me:

    1. Is beta 6 really faster than 4.3.3?
    2. Is there an ios 4 alternative to the notification center that looks as much like the iOS 5 one as possible?
    3. Is it worth losing all my customization options to go to beta 6? (Sleep FX, Winterboard, BiteSMS, Double At, etc) or is there a way to get all that stuff working on there/alternatives?
    4. Or instead of those aforementioned apps/tweaks, are there some cool things that I can use for iOS 5 to fill that customization/tweak void from iOS 4?
    5. Anything else I should know?

    Thanks everyone :)

    I think the iOS 5 is snappier than 4.3.3., yes. So far, it's my favorite thing about the new software.

    Alright, well that addresses one thing for me. And why'd I get a thumbs down?

    Are you a developer? And I'd go with 4.3.3...since iOS5 is BETA, and bound to be more buggy...

    If you want a jailbreak replacement to the notification center, use LockInfo. Enable InfoShade and install this theme.

    Nope, not a developer. But that doesn't matter to me.


    Sounds interesting. Think I'll look into that.

    Been going between both in my iPad and while 5 is buggy .... It's a lot nicer than 4 so ...

    I downgraded after getting tired of the bugs .l.. But had forgotten just how slow 4 is and reverted back to 5

    lol that sounds quite a bit like me. Minus the bug thing. Of what bugs are you speaking?

    Probably why you were voted down

    Don't see why that's a good reason.

    Opinion: go to 4.3.5 and wait for official release of iOS 5 when its declared ready for all

    Just few weeks ahead

    Not bound to be, B6 definitely still has a sack of issues. If you like Apple's typical it just works nicely and smoothly, stay away.

    Anyway Beta 7 is out; but still suggest you wait for GM or release.

    Non-Developers aren't supposed to have iOS5 betas which is why Apple bricked some phones that were on beta 4 and 5.

    It is voted down by the way, not thumbs down.

    Why go to 4.3.5?

    Oh crap, didn't think it would be released yet. Is it any faster than b6?

    Yeah I know that they don't want non devs to be using it, but I don't see why not. And my bad about the voted down thing. Had YouTube on the brain.
