For me when it rebooted to do a reset all settings the progress bar hardly moved before it froze. After a hard reset using the home and power button it progressed to about half way before it froze again. Any attempt after that yielded the same results. Im just glad its not my phone that was playing up and that it IS a bug in the software.

I'm having exactly the same issues, the strange thing is that a lot of people are saying that resetting all settings solves most of their problems so it seems to be an issue only affecting select phones. 

 

I've waited around half an hour with no movement :( Ah well, just hope I can successfully restore it.

Yea I had to restore mine as there was no way around the stuck boot reset. I did restore 8 again just incase it was a bad ipsw file or flaky install but it still turned out the same. Guess we will have to wait till beta 3...

Beta 2, has gotten more unstable the more I use it. Best bet is to revert back to 7.1.1 or live with the issues until beta 3 (hopefully next week)

 

Another bug that I found was when deleting photos. They seem to disappear from the Photos app but stay on the device. I removed all pics from stream and gallery and it still showed 1.9GB of space used. 

 

Also full size contact pics are back, but glitchy. :D

On my iPod touch I've been experiencing random freezes in several iOS as well as third party apps.  Much more so than I experienced in Beta 1.  Not as many outright crashes, but the freezes are perhaps even more annoying than the crashes were, given their frequency and duration.

Downgraded to 7.1.1 last week, seems absolute flawless compared - Looking to move away from the iPhone anyway so doubt ill get to utilise iOS8 as much as i have this version.. Bored of the sight of it, it needs a complete overhaul

For anyone still having issues with iOS 8 and Whatsapp, new update is available and fixes the issue. 

 

Looks like they're gearing up for the launch tomorrow.

iOS 8 GM is glitchy and laggy even on iPhone 5S and iPad Air. Feels like beta. Random places the A7 based devices become sluggish.

Uhg I hate this. I'm never sure if it is pressed or de-pressed.

Will "Hey Siri" work on all devices that support Siri? Seems like one of those "only latest and greatest hardware" features...  Will it work on my iPad 3 and iPhone 5?

Hey Siri only works plugged in, which means it's pretty useless.

Wow, GM on 4S is a huge dissapointment. Very laggy and slow, I'll wait for a JB to see if it improves things, but I have a feeling that I'll go back to 7. Oh, and about that predictive thing on the keyboard, only English is supported?!?!

 

EDIT: Nvm, it seems there's prediction for my language too, but limited...I'm waiting for SwiftKey...

Anyone have any experience with the GM on the iPad 3 or an iPhone 5?

 

Lots of folks complaining about lag which is odd considering how positive the sentiment was in the later betas (based on what I read online, no first hand knowledge here).

Was this changed before release?  According to this article, it needs to be plugged in. But this was written during the beta.  Maybe they improved it since?  Not sure I'd want to ever bother with it if it is a battery drain.  But, to be honest, this was actually one of the few new features I was looking forward to.

The always-listening feature does draw a lot of power, but Apple has addressed this by only making it available when the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch is plugged in.

Hey Siri is awesome! When driving on the car, I usually always have connected my cell phone, so it just works cool.
