    Would you prefer iOS 7 the way it is now, or if it kept iOS 6 design (icons and skeumorphism) but had the same exact iOS 7 features like Control Center.

    No, I have been using iOS 7 for 3 months and am very happy about the update to the design - I far prefer iOS 7 to the previous versions of iOS, design wise.

    Nope. One of the reasons I jailbroke was for Winterboard. After seven years I'm ready for a change.

    I love the redesign. I think the old iOS was getting exactly that, old. We've essentially been looking at the same icons and backgrounds and details for the past 6 years. It was time to change it up. People are so upset about it, as if their dog died.

    7 is a great software, and it will only get better with updates. I wonder what 8.0 will bring.

    I love the functionality of iOS 7. I just hate the icons and some of the colors schems.

    I'd take iOS 7 without the lag. I had to enable the "Increase Contrast" option under Accessibility to get the same graphical performance as I used to get with iOS 6. The Increase Contrast option just gets rid of all the transparancy/frosted glass effects.

    I'm getting a 5s soon, so maybe I'll be able to keep all the eye candy without lag on it.

    I love both the features and the UI of iOS 7.

    Within 10 minutes, iTunes Radio convinced me to buy iTunes Match and drop Google Play All Access, and Safari is just wonderful.

    Yeah, that really is my only serious complaint. But there's too much other good stuff for me to worry much about it. :)

    No, i was pretty happy how iOS 7 turned out to be. iOS 7 was the breaking point for me. Either it was something different or i was switching to the Galaxy Note 2. iOS was getting pretty boring.

    Not disappointed

    Now if only Apple could make at least a 4.8in display i'd be happy. But that for another discussion.

    I like iOS 7 as is, it will only continue to get better.

    People bitched so hard about iOS having the same look since it was first released. Now after ~6 years they update the look and people still bitch about it?

    If you think you can design a better OS, please go apply for Apple's design team.

    Recap of post = People are going to bitch no matter what.

    I have a 4S with ZERO LAG on 7.0. And no, I'm not lying. It runs just as fast as my 4S on 5.0, 6.0...

    Looking back at ios 6, it looks childish and dorky. Apple could have made some better design choices though with colors and such.

    Once you use iOS 7 it's hard to go back to iOS 6. It looks so freakin dated (2007 to be exact LOL).

    I agree. I don't understand why people are so angry about the redesign. It's been the same freaking software practically for 6 years, this was the most anticipated update for me. I couldn't wait to get it and I'm glad I have it.

    iOS6 < iOS7. :cool:

    No of course not. The whole thing would be SMOKIN hot if they just (shot Ives, ..kidding). ...Changed color options.

    That's all....nothing more.

    I like the simplicity of iOS 6 better. Im sure just like everyone else, this will just take time to get used to.

    I'm too used to iOS 7 now that I don't ever want to go back to iOS 6. Besides, yes, I do genuinely love iOS 7 even before I got beta 1 on all of my iDevices.
