IOS9 and IPhone5

iOS and iPadOS

i'm using iphone5, and i want to install iOS9 on my device. however, i'm afraid that it makes my device more sluggish.
has anyone tried iOS9 on iPhone5?
please tell me your experience, as the newer iOS, the more sluggish older iPhones.
best regards :D

I haven't found any difference between iOS8 and iOS9 on my phone, a 16GB iPhone 5. The Siri voices don't work all that well, but they're usable. Everything else seems fine.

I have an iPhone five, running iOS 9, and the experience has been pretty good. I don't use Siri voices that much since I rather use samantha which is the default voice, but from what I can tell, the Siri voices are good enough. Anyway, I'll will soon switch to an iPhone 6s. However the experience of iOS 9 is pretty good on an iPhone five. Just a suggestion, but you should upgrade.

Anything that can run iOS 8 can safely run iOS 9. So I do believe it's safe. So upgrade with confidence.
