Which emoji? I don't see any that thrill me that much. Most look the same.
Tap & hold for tonal gradients on skin tones... otherwise they are the same... some new flags... I'm indifferent about them... the only one I've used that in the new emjoi standards isn't even on the Apple emoji keyboard yet... �� -- Live long and prosper... You can copy the symbol and paste it into a keyboard shortcut to use it... :)

Yeah, I found the tone options quick. But I guess I'm like you. I was hoping for some cool new objects. And there's a few they could get rid of, IMO!

Video playback in Safari is horrible after the update. Lots of freezing/buffering. Three seconds > freeze > press play > 4 seconds > freeze > press play > 1 minute > freeze > press play. Doesn't happen in Chrome.

Not on my device (iPhone 6 Plus). Try a reboot or do a clean install of iOS 8.3, if you updated OTA.

8.3 messed up the order I had the share and activities options. Having to do them everywhere all over. Each location is separate.

I can't believe how much faster the phone seems to be on 8.3. I was saying earlier that it is like the WiFi is two to three times faster on my phone. Almost like I have a completely new phone. Just making me even more certain I made the right choice moving over from Samsung to Apple

I feel the same way. Once a company called me to switch me to Blackberry and bundle my company's long distance and cell phone all-together. I told them I'd take a non-working iPhone over any Blackberry. LOL

Wow, talk about a slow download. Sheesh. 7 hours? Using my pretty fast WiFi at home. Busy servers? Guess so. Decided to just D/L it to my mac and I'll go about my day and install it on my phone later.

The new emoji would be cool if they weren't limited those with iPhones on 8.3. I'm one of the few iPhone users in my text circle. And all they are seeing are aliens or crowns. I've gotten my wife to update but everyone else is on Android. So until other platforms update their system the new emojis aren't that great of an addition.

I did the iTunes update method as versus the OTA update.

When I was reading the changes is this new version I was floored at how many there were. It was a real doozy of a list!

So far so good. If anything, it's made my iPhone 6 Plus much faster. A lot of the annoying little bits of sluggishness that I was experiencing before seems to be gone now. If you ask me, iOS 8.3 is by far the best iOS 8.x release.
