    I noticed an improvement in RF. Maybe a result of cleaning out some thing but signal is better ( a dot better).

    My battery life on my 4S is way better (back to pre iOS8 levels). Off charger 2.5 hrs today and still showing 100% with light use. with 8, I would already be around 85% at this point. Huge improvement.
