Very stable indeed.
I use it on a SE Arc, not any Samsung, don't really know if that makes any difference.
What I would point out as a strong point of the iOS is fast operation more than stability

When someone say unstable iOS, please show me how to freeze your iOS more often than Android.

I use both and I can say iOS is far stable than Android. There're only a few selected Android devices which's stable as hell, and those are Galaxy SII and Galaxy Nexus. Even though SII is TouchWiz is unstable as hell but I never be able to freeze my SII even once(may be an overwhelming power).

People who say their is no battery issue never owned a iPhone 4 with iOS 4

Their are few iPhone 4s that don't have battery issue I've seen

5.1 fixes a lot of bugs and also it made my
iPhone 4s a bit faster :)

Updated my 4s over wi-fi and pleased so far. There are occasions when it decides to start dropping wi-fi connections for fun (and sometimes cellular data as well) but this has been happening since before 5.1 and if Apple could fix it I'd be more than happy :)

I did not know that IOS has so may bugs, so everyone upgrade it ASAP. Thought that IOS is old but stable... looks like it is old and unstable :)

Of course it's true - iOS has so many bugs that no one wants to stay on older version. An "old & stable release" simply does not exist.
The problem is, immediately after a new release, the problems multiply and become more serious and the story starts from scratch.

Well using I9100 or Android for 10 months now, I gotta say I love Apple for their continuos upgrades, they really do support their products very well, sometimes that meets the lack of little hardware in iOS devices.
Would love to get back to iOS.

But of course it's quick. This is Apple, after all. Not Handroid or any other yard-sale OS and manufacturer.

this number would be much higher, around 99%, if jailbreak and unlock would be availbale right away after the new latest iOS release :)

Guess what, it's the annoying popups and (1)'s that makes people upgrade

Exciting stats indeed, YAWN!

Re: earlier post....Android has staged & selected releases (if at all)and that shouldn't be the case.

Anyway, GSMA; was this was the only 'interesting' news of the day then?
