- Ease of use It just works.
- Speed Slightly sluggish. I'm sure it's only because it's beta.
- Configurability The new notifications are awesome, and the "cut the cord" stuff works flawlessly.
- Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.) For the first time ever, I'm giving iOS ecosystem a 5, I think it's finally developing into a sophisticated mobile platform.
- Openness Still pretty closed, but Apple has so many APIs and ways you can change iOS, it's not that bad.
iOS5 is a solid addition to the iOS software lineup. It boasts some impressive quality of life additions that makes it my favorite software update yet.
