    Simply put -- I like it. My devices are snappier, no quirks, and everything still works..

    It's great. No crashes so far, and the battery life is great, I have no complaints. I don't really care for Carplay and the aesthetic features so I'm fine on that front too.

    Updates seem to keep getting bad results for me. Battery life, keyboard background unchangable,lock screen buttons swipe gone now small button, Podcast forward & rev buttons replaced with 15 second times, even pause button missing sometimes now. Just my first day of use of update observations. I like iphone's they just seem to be getting un- user friendly.

    So far I like it fine, no issues whatsoever. However, I have had absolutely no problems on my jailbroken devices with 7.0.6. With that I'm trying to decided whether or not to update my other 5s and rMini to 7.1 or leave them jailbroken on 7.0.6.

    It's what iOS 7 should have been from the day it launched to the public.

    I appreciate the tweak to animation speed (much more tolerable now) and the list view in Calendar, but it's not as mind blowing as I was hoping for. I have a 5, so I didn't really see the crashes that plagued many 5s devices (although I did have 2 between 7.0 release and now). It made my iPad 3rd gen a little better, but I really didn't have that many issues on it (I had upgraded to iOS 7 and set it up as New).

    I did have to eventually set up both devices as New on iOS 7.1. I did the OTA upgrades when it came out, but I ran into issues with wifi connectivity (oddly, the 2.4GHz spectrum and not the 5GHz issues that others have reported) and quirkiness (Mail seemed to take forever to sync, open, switch folders, etc.). But after setting up as New, both devices are performing well, and I don't have any unusual battery drain that often comes with updates. Overall, pretty positive (although it would have been a wonderful gift if Apple had included a quick reply to iMessage right in notification center).

    I like it, clean, smooth, wasn't having any problems on my 5s to begin with. So IOS 7.1 is a bonus.

    I'm happy because 7.1 feels like iOS 7 should. On my iPad Air I was having multiple crashes per night (a lot of Apple boot screen of death) especially while FaceTiming. My iPhone 5 wasn't as zippy as it should've been, and it had more crashes then it should've too. iOS 7.1 has fixed most of the crashing. It introduced a wifi problem on both devices and I've since restored both (from backup) and it hasn't cropped up since doing so.

    Overall I'm pretty happy, happy enough that I've decided not to try a Nexus 5 (for now)

    Yea. Glad it's working out for you. You would gain little to nothing with the Nexus. IMO.

    Not worth losing my jailbreak IMO.
    Apple shouldn't be able to dictate what we can and can't do on OUR devices!

    Seven years later and still the same ol keyboard?!?!?

    It sure is! Apple hasn't come far along as customization goes.
    Seriously, just stop and think how limited the keyboard is compared to ANY other platform. Even freakin blackberry has a better keyboard than iOS!!

    Don't get me wrong I love IOS but it is far too limited.

    You must not know all the awesome tweaks the jb community offers.

    I do find the keyboard difficult after the accuracy and efficiency of my Android options. You've got so many different keyboards to choose from too.

    Speaking of jailbreak, I finally found iSwipe for my 5s. It's not incredibly accurate but when I'm in a hurry, it's useful.

    Ok but my battery life is downright AWFUL. The standby drain and usage drain is much much worse than with previous versions. Makes me wish I wouldn't have updated.

    Do you have locations services or Bluetooth enabled?

    I updated my iPhone 4 last night- so far it seems smoother and less jerky than previous ios7 incarnations. All good thus far.

    Same here. I have GPS off on everything but Find My iPhone, I NEVER use BT, I almost never use WIFI, I made sure everything was off that didn't need to be on. And it's still draining like crazy. The first day after I let it die and fully charged it it was fine, but since then, within 1 minute of taking it off the charger, it's already bleeding. Even on airplane mode.

    Try disabling ALL location services, including find my phone, and see if that makes a difference in a day or so.

    Neither. My battery was ok before 7.1, and now it is downright bad.
