Has anyone had similar issues ? I've installed iOS 10 Beta 1 on my iPhone 6 and it's lagging and freezing at least one a day and occasionally I have to hard reboot my I device and also noticed it drains my battery quite fast opposed to iOS 9.3.2 and some apps either crash or do not work in iOS 10 beta 1

I usually test the major betas and this is how they typically run when they are still on beta 1 or 2. As far as third party apps, expect problems with some of them. They range from minor bugs to the apps being completely broken and crashing upon opening. Third party app developers don't typically update their apps for compatibility with the new OS until the the GM (Gold Master, which is identical to the public version that follows shortly thereafter). If battery life, stability and app compatibility outweigh the benefits of early testing of the new features, you'll likely want to downgrade to 9.3.2. A large portion of casual beta testers only run it temporarily due to these downsides. It's not really practical for a long-term daily driver.

Well, Safari is certainty snappier.
Good. Hopefully, it won't take several months after the final version to make it stable, as that has been the trend for the past few years.

Did you have any problems with third party apps? Most aren't updated for iOS 10, so many people experience crashing or functional problems similar to the OP's.

Navigon East Coast crashed upon opening. I can't remember which other app crashed.
