Battery life is better than on 7, on my iphone at least.Battery performance? Performance? Contemplating on updating but i'll be waiting for the jailbreak to arrive first.
Weather app is stuttering on all devises, even iphone 6/6+ as well as iphone 5s from what people are saying. It has to do with software optimization.Weather app tap on different city instead of swiping.
Settings app scrolling at times. Then suddenly it becomes smooth.
If you value performance and stability over a few new features that really don't add much stay where you are! In my experience it really isn't much different but overall it has been slower with the occasional choppy animations. The first annoying thing I noticed was a lag when springing open some apps. I would hit an app and it would not immediately spring open like in iOS 7.1.2. The icon will dim a little then about a half second will go by then the animation happens. Again this is something most people won't notice but it's there and I do! Also do you like how fast safari is for you? On 8 it is much slower to load pages! It's night and day! I wish I could go back! I'm on the 8.1 beta 2 and safari performance still isn't up to snuff. Another annoyance is the battery meter is wacky. It will hang on some percentages and drop in little chunks instead of just going down normal. This isn't due to a calibration issue or bad battery since mine is new and I've done a few full cycles and I've seen other threads on here about the same issue. Also a lag when plugging in your device of a few seconds before it shows you are charging. This is fixed so far in beta 2 however. I also expierence various graphical glitches especially after watching a full screen video. When in done with the video, app elements end up mushed in with the status bar. The status bar remains when viewing pictures within the messages app. Hmm I could go on but I think you are getting the picture! Stay where you are! If you aren't annoyed with things like I've mentioned go ahead and update. But in reality I don't know if they will ever get performance back to 7.1.2 on the 5 with 8 at all! Take care!Bump.
Not much talk about iPhone 5 on ios 8. I'm still on 7.1.2 and still on the fence about upgrading. Everyone still having good experiences? I never had a problem going from ios 6 to ios 7 the day it came out.
That's what I suspected. I think I will hold off and check back once 8.2 and 8.3 roll out. Right now I have have zero complaints, everything is running smoothly. Battery life is good as well, even though it is a replacement battery I put in myself a little less than a year ago.If you value performance and stability over a few new features that really don't add much stay where you are!
the weather app hiccups just to name one. There is a delay between the time you tell control center to turn on the flash light and before it actually comes on. Its ridiculous how long it takes just to activate the flashlight.
