Been using it for a while.. Everything seems smoother.. a lott smoother for me on 4s. No such lag found.
The landscape mode bug which caused status bar to disappear hasnt been fixed. Rest is working fine till now.

How's yours?

Do you have Reduce Motion or Increase Contrast selected?
How is now compared to 7.1.2?

Reduced motion on ( since updating to iOS 8.0 )
Increase contrast only has Reduce White Point toggle on.

Compared to 7.1.2 : i think Apple will reach that point of stabilization with 1 or 2 iOS updates. Comparing with iOS 8.0.2 , its faaaaar better. :)

Waiting for your results. :)
I really wish Apple improved battery life on 4s.

My 4s is much less laggy since upgrading from 8.0.2 to 8.1. The Camera app is still slower than it was on 7.1 but it's FAR better than 8.0.2 (actually usable now).

Now to see what the battery life is going to be like. :)

Here's to hoping 8.1 resolves the blue screen crashing that ios8 brought to my iPad Air!

Camera has improved a lot for me. :)
Finally i can stay with my 4s for 2 or 3 years more :D :p
I think 8.3 will make 4s perfect like 7.1.2 . ;) :apple:

Thanks for the information. My parents have the 4S and have been holding off on upgrading to iOS 8. It sounds like it may be worthwhile, now.

By the by, although not officially supported (at least not from what I have read so far) SMS forwarding appears to work with my iPhone 4S.

So, I have a 4s still on 7.1.2. Should I upgrade or wait for 8.2? ;-)
Is it worth the new features available for the 4s?

If you like the performance of it, it is highly unlikely iOS 8 will be as smooth. Wait for 8.2 or never update beyond 7.1.2
