    I installed iOS 8 GM again on my iPhone 5c and will keep it. It randomly lags now. Animations pause and stutter at few places. I can finally have similar experience as my LG G2.

    It runs just fine for me. If anything, iOS 8 is a more stable, virus free version of Android.

    Why not wait a few hours for the released version?

    "Android experience?"
    Will iOS 8 downgrade my thumb reader to a 50/50 success rate then?

    That's plain silly/FUD. Android has nothing to do with the thumb reader. It boils down to display, aspect ratio and resolution. I had poor thumb recognition on a 1st gen iPad mini and my Galaxy Tab 4 has great tap recognition.

    He meant Touch ID compared to Galaxy S5 POS reader.

    I think far too many people expect perfection when it comes to an OS. There isn't any such thing.

    iOS 8 isn't perfect. Nitpicking over something so very minor that will probably be resolved, is a bit much. The same thing happens with Android, Microsoft, and Linux.

    Apple has put together a lot of great new features here. Why not be a little patient?

    Runs well on my 4S. You may be better off doing a clean install??

    Yea, I only use my thumb to access my iPhone with out even thinking about it that I forget that I could just as easily use the prints on my first finger, just in case I lost my thumb or such.

    7.0.0 was the same. Just wait a few weeks installing iOS8.

    This is MacRumors. That is not happening. You have a better chance of a Zombie Apocalypse, than you do people not installing iOS 8.

    I think it's fair to expect near flawless smoothness and performance from iOS. After all it was just that until iOS 7 (7.1 fixed issues for iPhones, but iPads still remain neglected, and suffer from poorer performance compared to iPhones).

    iOS 8 GM has been flawless on my 5S, I prefer the speed and fluidity to iOS 7.

    I used to be a huge Android user. Android is my platform of choice due to the fact that I'm a nerd and like to tinker. I also use all Google services, which obviously integrates well.

    With that being said, I've had to migrate to the iPhone for my job. Our firm only offers native integration (calendar and mail) through iOS, as well as many firm specific apps. I have an iPad and have used a MacBook for years, so I was never anti-iPhone. People enjoy different things.

    I honestly don't see that much of a difference between the two platforms anymore, outside of the ecosystem. My iPhone 5S has had its share of weird stuff happen:
    - it lags at random times (switching between apps).
    - my screen would sometimes get stuck displaying diagonal
    - applications crash, booting me back to the home screen (I was using it as a GPS to get to somewhere in the mountains...gMaps stays on after you use service with turn by turn, but the app crashed out of the blue, making me lose turn by turn).
    - the music app is super choppy when scrolling with a lot of artists
    - etc. etc.

    My point is: iOS isn't without its flaws. People sitting here bashing Android by saying it is only full of bloat and viruses are clearly iPhone/iOS fanbois. You can not prefer something, sure, but that's no reason to sit there and bash it. Android and iOS need each other; they each push one another to innovate and adopt features.

    I've personally seen most of the stuff he posted. That said, it doesn't happen often. I will also go one further and say the music player app in iOS is putrid and needs a lot of help. I'm hoping iOS 8 fixes it, but I don't think it was ever mentioned as an area of focus.

    These things happen at random. It would take way too long to sit there and film me attempting random tasks until it happens.

    I'm not saying these things happen every day. I might see a little bit of lag pretty much daily, but some of the others aren't as commonplace.

    Regardless, the point of my post was that iOS isn't 100% problem-free like many who throw around the word "Fandroid" seem to think. Both platforms have their pros and each has their cons. Using any current, high-end device of either platform can be an enjoyable experience.

    I can safely say, no one on iOS 8 forum or the iPhone forum has said fandroid. Now go to any pro android site, scroll to the comments, and you'll see sheeple countless times.

    Anywho, its hard for someone to agree with someone if they aren't having a problem. The inly problems I had with iOS 7 was iTunes radio scroll lag and some io glitches.
