just an fyi from an iPhone 5 user.

Those who are still rocking iPhone 5's ;) I highly recommend installing this because it really fixes a lot of the things that 8.0 broke. Camera roll is back! and a majority of the UI problems are gone. It's very nice imo. Battery life is still rubbish though, same as iOS 8 on the 5.

People have different kinds of experiences. Considering 8.0.2 is kind of stable for most I would highly recommend that people stick with it and don't install a beta build.

How is safari on it?

I did a comparison today with an iPhone 5 running 7.1.2 with the iPhone 6 at an AT&T store. The iphone 5 loaded/displayed web pages faster than the 6 did, both connected to the stores wifi.

I have to say i'm impressed with safari. It renders pages faster than 7.1.2 on my iPhone 5 but the battery life is noticeably worse than any iOS v7.

So for the record, you're saying Safari is snappier?
People always report Safari becoming snappier even with 0.0.0.0.0.1 update increments. So if we take all cumulative snappiness together, Safari must be running in God Mode where it will display websites today which you would potentially want to browse few days from now.
