I'm purchasing an iPhone 7 pretty soon. But before I update, how has iOS 11.2 been? I heard it's really stable even for a Beta version of iOS

It's only been out for hours essentially, and just for developers so far, so hard to really say much one way or another. Might not be the best thing to update to the first beta, especially one that's not even publicly available yet.

I have 11.2 beta on my iPhone 6.
It's very-little faster than 11.1 b5, and noticeably faster than 11.0.3.
The battery is worse than 11.1 b5, but I believe it's only because iOS is still indexing. I think it'll go back to normal after a few days of installing.

I've been running 11.2 beta 1 on my 7+ for 5 days. Absolutely no problems. Everything is smooth. Battery life wasn't awesome on the first day but quickly stabilized to about 10 hours per day -- same as I was getting under 10.3.3.

Did they get rid of notifcation flash? When you drag down from the top of the phone.
