I had a run-in with abilify twice. For only 2 weeks at 10mg the first time, I was still seeing things but didn't really believe any of the paranoia; delusions were easy to just "brush off".
The second time I kept at it for over a month (also 10mg) and had the same experience but with worse side effects (I promised myself I'd keep at it no matter the side effects...I failed) It gave me anxiety, horrible dreams that seemed so real, and an uncontrollable rage that almost ended my (and a few others) lives. So, safe to say Abilify is not for me. But I do know what you mean about it only knocking out a few symptoms. All it really does is make the symptoms more tolerable. They never fully go away IMO.
