    Let me clarify. I am in no way considering going back to Android at the moment. Without these issues I am experiencing, the phone would be perfect. The hardware quality is impeccable and the speed/smoothness of the OS is impressive.

    I am just disappointed because I was not expecting such issues based on many experiences from Apple users I've talked to. I'm hoping this is just a fluke and perhaps I will take it to the Genius Bar and they will offer some assistance or replacements. Trust me, I am very familiar with the poor customer service of Samsung Galaxy devices when you need any type of assistance.
    New OS, new phones. There will be a few glitches. But Apple is good at getting it right with updates asap.

    I learned through trial and error. This ^ is good advice. Makes all the difference. It's the long way around, but it usually works.

    I was impressed at first. However, I'm experiencing a plethora of bugs that I feel are unacceptable for a premium device and reputation that Apple has built.

    On both of our devices we experience taking a picture but having it not show up in the camera roll at all after taking frequently.

    iMessage picture messages not sending or being received even though it says delivered and iMessage not working on wifi at times.

    Wifi hang ups and freezes. Also it prompted my wife's phone for my Apple ID randomly. On my phone it prompted for a random Apple ID.

    This has been happening before and after the latest update.

    I'm thinking of taking it to the Apple Store but I'm confused. Will they be able to do anything if all of these are software issues? I've already done the reset both devices and set up as new iPhones and restore with iTunes instead of iCloud but it didn't help.

    Anyone else experiencing the same?
    I have had some slow wifi issues at times, but the other things no. I would say it seems like you have a lemon. When I snap pics, they show up immediately in the photos app. Also haven't had any issues with iMessage either.

    As already stated, you might want to restore your device (allowing iTunes to download and install a fresh copy of the latest iOS version for your iPhone and then set it up as new or be patient and wait for the 8.1 update. It is rock solid and what iOS 8 should have been at launch, in my opinion...

    I've had some issues as well. Like how the keyboard completely disappears, or that the trash can icon randomly vanishes while trying to delete check marked text messages.

    I believe or hoping will be somewhat bug free when 8.1 comes out. I remember when the n5 first came out with kitkat and whew tons of bugs. Give it time things will get fixed

    No way man, I'm being totes serious. Why should 99% of the consumers who got an iPhone enjoy it problem free when the 1% find problems with it. To me, that's a total and complete failure on Apple's part and they should be taken to court and maybe even shut down. Pleasing 100% of the consumers on the planet is the responsibility of the company...we are entitled to be happy all the time...ALL of us, or none of us.

    When I first got my 6 I restored from a backup. I had lots of Bluetooth and wifi problems. I was really dragging my feet wiping the device and setting up as new but finally I did it and I'm glad I did.

    It sounds like you did set yours up as new so I'm surprised you're having so many issues. If 8.1 doesn't solve your issues you should definitely take your device in to Apple. In all honesty though, this has been the buggiest iOS release I've experienced. Fortunately the restore solved my biggest issues and what's left are minor glitches that will most likely be worked out soon via update.

    Good luck!

    So I took my phone in to the Apple store and talked to a genius. He said it is most likely a software issue with the pictures not saving in the camera roll intermittently whioe still showing a thumbnail in the bottom left of the camera. He offered to exchange the phone anyway. New device, set up as a new phone no restore from any backup and the issue still persists on the new phone. Hopefully ios 8.1 will correct this annoying issue

    I also regret the iPhone 6. Don't get me wrong, its well designed, looks great, and has an established ecosystem. So , why do I regret it? it's still just an "iPhone" There is nothing innovative about it. Honestly, I really believe iOS is headed down the same path that PalmOS treaded. With android, I have unlimited customization options and features iOS has still yet to adopt. So, that leaves me back on my M8 and the iOS6 is an early unexpected present for my daughter. Now I just need santa to bring the Moto360 to compliment the aneroid experience.

    iOS is heading down the same path as Palm OS? Not hardly. Being disenchanted with iOS is a users prerogative but saying it's going the way of Palm? Come on son get real. Look at the numbers.

    I doubt that, it's to well established. I think iOS will be around for a long time.

    Problems with the iPhone? Nah! Minor issues with the 3rd party keyboards freezing my messages app. But that's it! They'll have that problem under control soon enough.

    I left Android as well and love the iPhone 6 I have been a huge Samsung fan and only would by Samsung. My wife uses HTC M8. But I was waiting for Apple to put out a bigger device and when they did I gave it a try and I can't go back after using my iPhone 6 when I go back to my Note 4 it feels so sluggish. I am happy I switched
