    Of late my phone has been pretty laggy. It stutters during simple operations and the keyboard response is very slow resulting in too many typos. So has anybody seen any speed increase after installing 5.1.1?

    You might check to see how many apps you have in the multi-tasking bar (double click the home button). If there are tons of apps "open", press and hold until they jiggle and hit the "-" to close them down. You should do this periodically.

    Also, if you have several apps that are either RSS feeds or use push notifications and data updates, these are hard on your device's speed, not to mention battery life.

    The most recent update seems to have made things happen more "snappy" IMO, but that might be wishful thinking. No problems with it, though.

    I'm on a 4, and haven't had any speed issues what so ever.
    i do clean out my multitask bar every few hours or so if iv used a lot of apps.
    but no lag

    It sounds to me like you may have too many things running on the phone.

    Didn't change anything about mine. Still fast enough. Battery life is the same. As I understand it, 5.1.1 cleans up some bugs, that's about it.

    clear out your multitask tray or reboot your device
