    This is all that matters to me.

    Are animations still laggy on occasion?
    Is battery worse or better?

    I actually have found performance to bette! It seems to work faster then iOS 4.3.3 with no glitchy animations! It also seems to have the same battery life.

    This is all from my experience running it on my iPhone 4.

    So far, my battery life is about the same. I have a friend with it on his 3GS, and he says it's been hot and draining battery like nobody's business since he updated it.

    I have exactly the samme problem as registerednerd's friend.

    My iPhone 3Gs drains battery as never before, without even using it for a whole day, I have to recharge it up to 2 times a day, just to keep it alive.

    Hoping for a new beta version ASAP, that hopefully will fix this.

    While I understand your concern, I think your questions will be better answered as the beta becomes more mature. We won't know the performance or battery issues until Apple approaches the release build. The beta at this stage is really for developers to test their existing apps on.

    I did a clean restore with ios 5 on my iphone 4 with my music and a few apps. Runs ALOT smoother and faster. Battery is about the same. Previously I was jailbroken on 4.3.1
