Just tried again and confirmed that this happens every time. If you go to the messages app what you typed in the quick reply isn't there. Wow.

Sorry for not having understood. But what does this mean ? Are you saying that when you tyre a message in quick reply, if you miss the send button your typed message is deleted ?
Or
Is the received message itself is deleted ?

The first - your typed message is deleted and nothing is sent. Try it - tap just below the Send Button when typin a quick reply.

it has to be 70% accuracy due to hit detection on the screen. your hit must be less than 50%
The question is - why is it that easy to dismiss the notification and delete what you typed?

i have never missed... watch what you're doing and you won't either.

I can't even get the quick reply to pop up for me so you're a step ahead
when you get an sms/iMessage notification on lock screen, slide left to reply. on the home screen/in apps, pull the notification down.

I love how people defend this... Lets say you are replying to someone on your 6 Plus that you are holding with two hands. You type, and as you go to hit send with your right hand, you need to adjust your left hand so it doesn't drop and your left finger accidentally touches the screen. Now your reply is gone.

To the person asking if it should be saved in drafts, yes, it should. Lets say you are typing out a fairly lengthy quick reply while in the middle of another app you can't close. As you type, something important comes up and you have to put your phone away, wouldn't it make sense to be able to finish that message later?

the 2 hands method is hold in one hand, use the other hand for actions, and if you hold the phone in both hands, the grip is already established that one hand letting go means the dominant hand can do the action while the submissive hand keeps the phone held without a flinch. I don't know how YOU hold the phone but it sounds like you are describing an iPad Air, not a Phablet

Can't believe people are defending this. Seems obvious to me that if you've typed something, the banner should not go away until you flick it back up.

because its a quick reply, if you want that feature, open the app
With logic like this, why even bother?

----------

The amount of people actually rationalizing the lack of a quick save is astonishing.
Couldn't agree more. We have people freaking out about 20ms of lag yet they act like losing what you've typed into a quick reply is a feature of iOS 8.

"lengthy" "quick" reply. Isn't that an oxymoron? Quick replies are not supposed to be lengthy.

Wow you people are crazy. Completely agree with the OP here. If you type a message in quick reply and dismiss the notification, it makes perfect sense to me, for that unsent message to be retrievable under their name in the messages app...
