For those of you who have upgraded your iPhone 4's to iOS 5- how does it run?

I'm worried it will slow my phone down. Any problems?

No slowdown but have not noticed any speed increase so far with the additional features seems to run the same.

The IP4 is pretty close to the first generation iPad. It runs very smooth on my first iPad 16 Gig.

My 4 actually feels a bit more responsive after the upgrade.

Mine runs fine... now that it's running. But what a nightmare to get there!

You might want to give it a few days for things to shake out.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Works well enough for me, no considerable difference in speed, although lets be honest the speed difference between the 4 and the 4S will be down to the A5 chip and not the OS. Took me frigging ages to get finished though! Long process! My screen looks like it's wider though! Not complaining haha

I'm still testing it out but everything seems to be okay. The new notification system was worth it alone. The old one was too limiting to be used the way I wanted it to.

I also noticed a slightly better responsiveness but I think that might be because everything was reinstalled. Also there's definitely no apps running in the background when I first start it up. I'll see if this responsiveness stays when I used my iPhone more normally. It's not a dramatic difference for me so I don't know if it's really iOS 5 that's doing it. I suspect it's more of a benefit of the iOS reinstall.

Hey all, I am new to the Mac Forums but a long time iPhone/iPad user. I was wondering if anyone had any input on battery life/drain issues with iOS 5? I have played around with my iPhone 4 quite a bit since the update and noticed the battery life draining much faster than normal. Of course I could be completely paranoid but any other opinions would be great! Thanks!

Safari is noticeably faster for me. The notifications are freaking awesome. I have been playing with mine a couple hours and still at 97% battery life. I thought iMessage would be a little cooler but it works ok. The keypad while typing seems to have a little delay. The camera function on the lock screen is boring. Love the new reminders app.

60% of the time it works every time.

I haven't really noticed a huge difference in battery performance but I still need to play with mine more to give a definite answer. I have noticed that my iPhone 4 is running a little warmer than normal though.

If you are still having problems with your battery, first try calibrating the battery by doing a full drain and a full uninterrupted recharge. It has always fixed my battery issues in the past. Like our laptops I think these mobile devices need their batteries calibrated every so often.

It's not bad. I don't know if I like it better than the TellMeLater app I have. What's nice about Apple's Reminders app is the location based reminder feature.

The location portion of the reminders app is what I love. I should have specified.
