I think it's silly to stay on iOS 7 beta

Sorry to say but I had just spent some time with it today and while I really did enjoy it .. It just wasn't worth giving up some patience for crashing apps and faster speed that you get with the iPhone 5! Unfortunately it's a deal breaker for me and to be honest I don't remember iOS 6 beta 1 being this buggy! Yes I understand its a beta once again guys, which is fine.. But it seems to have lots of little issues. Enough for me to go back to iOS 6.1.4! I will be back though in about a month to try it out again, when the iOS is more stabilized!

Same here. I gave it a try. Messed with all the settings and fun new things. And then went back to ios 6. Ill probably do the same for each new beta.

it is very stable for me, no battery issues or anything like that. im very happy.
Agreed, other then some crashes and glitches (its a beta!!) My 5 is running great and I love all the new features. The blocking works excellent. I mean we can finally block imessages. Its awesome.

All the icon complaining is getting stupid. Stop staring at your phone. I hope Apple leaves all the icons just as they are just to piss the whiners off.

It is very buggy. I like being part of watching it improve though. I look at my ipad on iOS 6 and it looks very old though. I can't go back.

I noticed some inconsistencies! Which is normal! Like for instance when I close an app there is a lag in the animations which is to be expected but annoying for me! Sizing of certain apps and not being able to use them the way I would, some were just deformed .. I would rather wait until its more finalized and just enjoy my new iPhone with its speed without being compromised of anything

I've experienced a few bugs but nothing I didn't know was possible and certainly aren't show stoppers. Some of the past betas were far worse as far as bugginess goes. In one of them Safari would crash constantly.

I'd find it extremely difficult to go back. I really like the swiping gesture to go back and Safari all around a ton. I use Control Center more than I thought I would and love the new multitasking view. I've already deleted Pandora in favor of iTunes Radio's larger catalog.

Oh yes I know! I like the notification center and the easy swipes :) maybe it's because I just bought the iPhone 5 today.. Maybe the iOS doesn't feel perfect for my phone yet, because it is only a beta! I don't know :p

----------

maybe its just me, but i don't notice the lagging at all, but i barely have any apps on my phone.
Quite possible! Have u noticed it slowed down a little in speed at all? I can't answer that because I don't know how fast the iPhone 5 really is

I was surprised at how stable this beta was. Especially for being the first of an entirely revamped OS. There are parts of iOS 7 that run even smoother than iOS 6. Yes there are occasional glitches, and bugs, and crashes, and some battery issues...but nothing that could make me go back to iOS 6.

iOS 7 is in a whole other league.

You know what to be honest .. After I'm done playing around with the IP5 I probably will come crawling back in about a week or sooner lol I already miss it!

----------

nope i don't notice the lag in the animation, but like i said it could be me.
Yah true! Not a significant lag but a small one

----------

I can't seem to make up my damn mind lol

i remember iOS 5 beta 1 was good and then beta 2 came out and it was really bad, that is why apple released beta 3 in 9 days instead of the 2 weeks
Ahhh ok! Didn't know that but it's good they released it 2 weeks later! So I've been hearing that the final product aesthetic wise will actually look different. What do u guys think?

While that is correct, Apple's overall goal is to improve things with every beta. They aren't trying to ruin beta 2 and then release beta 3 a few days later.
