    The original mini works quite well with 8.1, however, I still felt the need to turn on Reduce Transparency and Motion. It's also partly a visual preference, I liked the fade animation enough to turn it on my mini 2.

    I can't remember a time when the FB apps were ever NOT sluggish......

    I installed iOS 8 to my original iPad mini and later installed 8.1.1. It is still noticeably slower, apps continuously crash, and web pages continue to crash in Safari. I tried several times doing a restore both from cloud backups and iTunes backups. Still no help. Any suggestions?

    I have iOS 8 installed on mine and it operates just fine. I notice decreases in performance if I have a few apps open in the background, but we have to consider it's an A5 processor.
