    Ever since I uploaded my 320GB photo library, I've had poor performance from anything photo related. When taking pictures, if I tap the area to view the photos I took, it just sits there forever. I usually have to just close the camera app and then launch photos.

    When viewing my library, sometimes it takes a very long time for videos to start playing. Trying to post a picture from the Facebook app makes the app hang. It just seems like my overall experience using the phone is worse now.

    I'm not sure whether to wait it out and see if things improve in iOS 9 or go ahead and stop using IPL. Anyone else experiencing this? (My library has been fully uploaded for over a month now).

    Experiencing the exact same problem, 300GB iCloud Photo Library.
    Photos/Camera on IOS is sluggish at best on my iPhone 6Plus

    Yes, you pretty much have to with a library that size.

    Just curious. How much space are you using on your device with a cloud library that size?
