    This iOS 8 thing is beginning to feel like the worst iOS upgrade ever.

    On my 5S, the screen sometimes gets stuck in a particular orientation. It will only let go if I quit the app or restart the phone.

    Also, when taking a picture, viewing it and then returning to the camera, the screen is often frozen. To unfreeze it, I have to preview the pic again.

    Most annoying bug so far is the wifi connection that just drops suddenly, with the phone switching back to LTE. Need to disable/enable wifi to restore functionality.

    Minor annoyance is the fact that background pictures seem to be weird in many apps, showing edges that were previously invisible.

    All in all, not a happy customer at the moment. Most 'advantages' of iOS8 have yet to materialize.

    Yup there are many annoying bugs in ios8. Hopefully a software update soon will fix them.

    Best wifi fix I used was simply turn off 5ghz band on router. 2.4 ghz is stable for me.
