I've had a blast here in iOS 7. I'm downgrading... iOS 7 just doesn't have the "snap" that iOS 6 did... when you pick up iOS 6 on an iPhone 5, you know THIS is the best phone in the world. Somehow, iOS 7 lost that. I think it's somewhere in the slow transitions. I'll be back for the GM. But if they don't do something, they might just lose me to Android... ;)

And I've been to Android, I always come back to superior experience. Don't blow it, Apple. Don't blow it.

How dare you mention Android. Android on my Nexus 4 could not be any better.

Thanks. Actually, you gave me hope for the MacRumors forums just now. The general attitude in here would have likely jumped on my "useless, stupid post!" And they would have ranted on and on about how I have probably never even used iOS 7.

Nor CyanogenMod on my NOOK. Dude, Not all Apple users are closed-minded.

I'm kinda torn. I hate the visuals, but I don't think Android in its current state looks much better, and the ecosystem is still behind. Plus, all the physics and animation makes iOS 7 kind of fun.

Indeed. As soon as apps are updated with compatibility, animations sped, debug code removed, and SMS notifications fixed, iOS 7 will be the BOMB in the wireless industry.

Although I too am happy that nobody has come in to bash you, think about it from the other side. Thread after thread, people say the same general things- iOS 7 is a step backwards, it looks like it's for little kids, it's slow, Android is lightyears ahead, etc... and after a certain point you just don't sympathize with the thread creators anymore. If you don't like it, then just switch to Android already!

Now let me be clear- I'm not referring to you in that last paragraph. You obviously have an open mind and seem to be a very respectful poster. If more people were like you, MacRumors forums would be a much better place!

I don't understand. If you don't like iOS and want to use android, just do it? Why tell a bunch of strangers?

I'm with 'ya. I downgraded to iOS 6 when I went on-call and I never went back up to iOS 7. For me there's no "must have" feature that justifies the quirks of a beta. I backed up my phone to put beta 6 on but I'm still meh. Maybe beta 7.

No sir. I'm saying that Apple needs to get this right, or they will lose what most people love about their iPhones- that is, knowing that they have the best phone on Earth.

I love my iPhone but really could care less if its thought of as the best phone on earth. I am confident though that when iOS 7 ships its going to be as smooth as iOS 6 was.

Then stop beta testing if you're not a developer.

People think that betas are some kind of showcase. They download it– when they're not supposed to– see that they are glitches and bugs, then cry on forums.

couple days ago i restored both my ipads to ios6, getting ready to sell them. To be honest i don't miss ios7 too much. still going to update to final only cause it's the newest operating system apps will eventually just work better on it.

I'm downgrading too. But I will definitely be back for the final release. I loved iOS 7 for the time that I've been using it :)

I downgraded to iOS 6 and then went straight back to iOS 7.

I just couldn't cope with the look of iOS 6 - it's tacky, glossy and just ew! :D

Whoa... "Cry on forums"? This is more of a "public discussion" and no, this whole time I've been using the betas (the very beginning) I've made it a point to not whine about a product that isn't finished yet.

I agree. What's the point of confiding in a bunch of strangers how you feel about something so inconsequential?

Anyway, OP - I hope you're able to find satisfaction with whatever OS you decide to use.

That's the problem. iOS is what I want, but I want iOS 7 to retain the smoothness that it's known for. Because android is the inferior OS. So yeah, I don't want to go android.

Honesty, I was just trying to come up with something to talk about while we wait for GM or next beta. And yes, I went back to iOS 6, mostly for battery life.

What do you want us to say? "NO! Please don't go!!!!!"

We don't care. Our lives go on. There will be plenty more behind you. When I left android for iOS, I posted a similar thread on XDA and got the same response. No one cares. Make your decision and move on. Apple doesn't care. Android and whatever phone manufacturer isn't going to shake your hand and blare fanfare when you buy your new phone. It's a phone.

It's slow due to the debugging code running in the background(Beta). Once gm or final hits, system will be smooth as butter.

ios 7 is the reason I moved BACK to Apple! Apples ecosystem is the most superior, until Android gets the same apps ill stay with Apple.

Example - HTC ONE - top of the range android phone - ran Real Racing with low graphics!

I saw ios 7 and thought hmm Apple is doing something new here (I was sick of ios 6 look) and sold my HTC one for Iphone 5!

No. I am not going to android. I just want Apple to not lose one of the major reasons I love my iPhone. The major speed. The smoothness

Yeah, we have the best app ecosystem. But I want the smoothness.

beta 1-3 were painfully slow on my 4s. but 4 onwards have just been super smooth. sure it might skip a frame here and there, but i'd prefer that to a laggy or slower usability experience. for me its just as fast as ios 6 or 5.

and this is a 4s i'm using as my daily driver. also its fully loaded with apps, and i've never set up as new since i got my iphone 3g. always use the same backup.
from waht i hear, betas have a lot of debugging going on and logs etc.so the final should be even quicker. i couldnt be happier with the speed.

the only things i think are "slower" than on ios 6 are multitasking and those godawful vertical safari tabs. safari tabs aren't "slow". jsut the experience is slow. i have to pay attentio nto which tab i'm on when the list shows up. and i'm constantly closing the wrong tabs. gui wise its fast.

IOS still needs some work and its obvious that its being rushed to make it available for the new IPhone. There will be many updates once it is released Its obvious that Apple is using iOs7 as its big fanfare in the next IPhone
