Did anyone else go back to 7.0.4?

    Right here
    7.1 Beta 1 was pretty good, Beta 2 I thought was very very good but Beta 3 just isn't working out for me. Battery life is not as good, App store crashes and basically a lot of random crashes. I always do a wipe and clean install. I just did a DFU back to 7.0.4 and am actually surprised with how much smoother it feels. Been a long time since I was on 7.0.4. It actually feels pretty good. I guess I am waiting on B4 before I hop back on the 7.1 wagon again.

    Not digging the phone app layouts. Love seeing my contacts full screen. I mean, isn't that the reason we assign pics to our contacts, so we can see their smiling faces?? Lol
    The only other thing that seems to be a bit weird is the music app seems very slow to respond to touches at times. If I am in an artists album view, and I tap "artists" to go back to the main artist library, it takes several seconds before it goes back.
    My battery life has been much better on betas 1,2 and 3. And I really enjoy the "darken colors" option. The light sky blue is so bad looking after seeing the royal blue look that that option gives you.
    But I will stay on the beta. 7.0.4 just seems a bit sluggish in comparison.

    Beta 4? iOS 5.1 only had 3 betas, and since iOS 7.1 is following a similar schedule with the rumored March release date there may not be another beta, you might be waiting until March. You can still install beta 2, can't you?

    Hell, I'm glad I saw this thread. I was going to upgrade to Beta 3 and jailbreak it but based on the fact that clean installs were done and it still didn't behave I'll stick to 7.0.4

    Or it might have a beta 4 and maybe even more betas. At best, 50/50 guess one way or another, which doesn't really say much either way anyway.

    I did, my battery was pretty bad on b3. Only getting about 6-7hrs usage versus 8-10 on 7.0.4. Not to mention little bugs here and there that were annoying.

    Beta 3 will expire on Feb. 10th. By then if no Beta 4, then GM build should be avilable. If not, then beta 4 would most likely

    iOS 7.0 came out a month earlier than iOS 5.0, so it's possible that it could also apply to 7.1.

    I believe that's actually when the current beta 3 expires, it's even earlier than that for beta 2, January 27 IIRC.

    Looks like we got iOS 7.1 beta 4 (expiring in early March).

    The apps have more to do with a terrible experience than iOS itself. What I mean by that is if, for example, you use Huffington Post on beta 2 you will crash every third story. Beta 3 fixed that. With that exception beta 2 was pretty stable and beta 3 better still.
