iOS 7.0 is awfully slow. 7.1 is much better. If you were on 6.1, that'd be different. You'll like 7.1 for its responsiveness on the 4S.
I have reduce motion toggled off due to the lousy app opening & closing animations and can't see any difference in speed with 7.1
The UI on 7.0.6 is much better for me, so too the control of location services. As with a heck of a lot of updates these days, I would stick with what you're on.
It comes with bugs which 7.0.6 didn't have though. Safari is more stable but that's about it. Even then, it still isn't 'fixed'.
Overall, for me at least, 7.1 is every bit as much of a disappointment as 7.0
i dont know what planet you're on but how can this statement possibly be true?
