    I like it but as a few insiders have mentioned, the changes are not as obvious as we might have expected. There are a TON of changes but many of them are quite discreet, behind the scenes.

    LIKES
    - Notifications
    - works absolutely fine on iP4, no performance issues like some geniuses have assured us

    UNLIKES (not enough to Dislike!)
    - LED notification is only for phone calls
    - Newsstand app can't be hidden in an app folder, it stays on top, so I have to shove it over to a blank page to get it out of my face (seems everything on Newsstand requires $ subscriptions)
    - iCloud interesting but requires a .ME email account, last thing I need is more email addresses
    - continuing inability to fundamentally change the "look": no themes, skins, or other ways to get beyond the 4 year old standard gray-blue background (I know I know, I should have an Android...)

    iCloud doesn't require a me.com address to get most functions. You only need me.com if you want to use icloud for sharing email.

    As for the performance issues, i'd say spend a week with a 4S and then you'd notice going back. It's all relative to your experience.

    Like: The new Notifications and SIRI.
    Dislike: They didn't make Multi-Tasking better, like such as webOS.

    Don't like the fact that my friends have to be updated to iOS 5 to use iMessage. Many are jailbroken on 4.33 and not planning on getting iOS 5 yet.

    I thought SIRI wasn't coming in the iOS5 for the iPhone4?????

    If it does then that is a nice bonus!!!!

    I thought you could access the camera on the lock screen with iOS 5. I downloaded, installed it, and I can't access it from the lock screen.

    While the phone is locked double tap the home button. I think it should pop up then..

    I don't care for the fact that Newsstand cannot be put in a folder.

    Maybe that will be addressed in a future update???

    Besides the notification center, not really impressed at all. Nothing GROUND BREAKING at all. The camera app on lock screen is nice, but other than that, it's "meh"

    LED's aren't only for phone calls. It happens for texts too, I don't pay attention to them for anything else thought.

    The only thing i do not like is that when you get a text you can easily forget its there because theres no icon at the top after it clears

    soemthing annoying about newstand is when i click on it just to look at the list of magazines i am subscribed to but dont click on any of the magazines and turn off it still is "running" behind the scene. i can see it if i click the home button twice. thats just lazy of apple engineers. basically the newstand app which is nothing but a piece of shelf is apparently an "app" too.

    if i click on the magazines and then get out...now there r two apps running...the newstand and the magazine
