    Dont think it was as much to do with Hey Siri as it was due to raise to listen to voice message in the Messages app.

    Lost overall smoothness, snappiness and feel of polish.

    Gained Android like feel. Finally the two operating systems are at parity with each other.

    man I hate hearing this stuff... iOS 8 seems ok on my iPad but I just cleared a bunch of photos and videos off my iPhone 5 (16GB) to make room... just can't pull the trigger -- too scared :eek:

    What you "scared" about ?

    The beauty of choice.

    Go with your gut feeling.

    I'm on iOS 8.0.2 on my iPhone 5s with no issues or remorse.

    I guess you haven't used a build of KitKat in the last three months. It's astonishingly smooth, stable and polished now.

    I hope you are joking as KitKat 4.4.4 still lags on latest hardware.

    On 7 I was able to make it so I could have access to the Notification Center when my iPad was locked. I like this so little ones don't play with it and accidently ship it down seeing a conservation between me and my wife. My daughter is old enough to know to ask, but I have nephews who just like to take and play with stuff.

    Camera roll, already noted. The simply stupid changes to the Safari UI for iPad were driving me mad until I downgraded. Swapping the bookmarks and sharing buttons; the glitchy, shrunken preview mode in the new Safari when the bookmarks tab is open; and having to press the bookmarks button to get them to go away; all these were unnecessary changes that took a good browsing experience and made it uncomfortable.

    And these aren't "bugs," they are "features."

    Not exactly what you meant but I lost all of my custom keyboard shortcuts. Didn't have many so just recreated them by hand.

    Amazes me, although it shouldn't, how this thread sounds just like the IOS7 threads just after it came out and IOS6 the same. Maybe I'll just now start a thread about how bad IOS9 is - the worst release ever and why can't I go back to IOS8.
    Personally, I have found IOS8 seems a little slower on my 5s than 7 but I've also found with every update it seems to take a few days for the system performance to improve - don't know what is doing but after 3 or 4 days it seems fine. All my apps seem to work fine (more and more ads with every app update). Was a little surprised about photos seeming to be "gone" but I sync with MBP and just created a folder with all my prior camera rolls and synced that event so photos are back on phone.

    Lost dual-language in Maps. Now it's either system OR local. In my case that's English OR Chinese. One reason I downgraded before signing finished.

    It's a pain to switch by backing out and entering settings and the back to maps. Very useful for travel and tourists etc.

    The lockscreen camera launches a fraction of a second slower on iPhone 5.

    I'll never get those fractions of a second back. :mad:

    The restructuring of the camera roll was disconcerting but that's is it. With IOS 8.0.2 no regrets.
