    After a few days of use, is iOS 7 growing on you? Or do you hate it even more?

    I have always appreciated the new design, and after using it for a day, I think I cannot go back to iOS 6 now.

    My iPhone 5 battery is draining so quickly that I have to charge it twice a day but I still won't downgrade to iOS 6. This is a beta version so it is expected. Almost everything about it is so much better then iOS 6 IMO (many would argue about the icons but am OK with that)

    I"m definitely getting more used to it and certain things are growing on me. However, I still prefer the look and feel of iOS6 right now. It's hard to tell too because you don't know whether some "features" are intended (such as the dots being removed from the calendar) or if they just haven't been implemented in the beta yet.

    Running very smooth tho, using it as my everyday driver.

    I loved it when I saw the keynote but I hated it when I first installed.
    Now it's starting to grow on me. I could care less about icons right now, but what really bothers me is the black dividing lines in control center, and the cluster *** that Messages has become. The "< Messages" next to Contact Name in the heading looks terrible. But I have faith. This is going in the right direction, and with some fine tuning everyone complaining right now like it's the end of the world will not look back at iOS6.

    They really shouldn't have shipped the beta with that wallpaper, and I agree that there is too much text at the top of the messages app.

    I'll agree with the fact that it's a little too colorful and bright when looking at it by itself. But after grabbing another iPhone 5 with iOS6 and comparing them side by side I already feel like iOS6 looks like its from 2007.....and well because it is. Unless iOS7 looks exactly the way it does today come Fall, then no one should be whining.

    Yes. Hated it with passion when I first saw it & first installed it. Now, after a nearly two days of usage I love it.

    It's definitely growing on me, you know, down there, in between. :)

    All this for me too. I think I will like the official release when animations are smoother.

    I do want 2 things:
    1. Make the folder backgrounds match the wallpaper, as they do when you open a folder.
    2. Shadow/emboss the app and folder labels on the home screen, so they are easier to read against lighter backgrounds.

    The first time I seen it, I was excited, however, it felt really weird to me. Of course, I knew that it was just because I was so used to the old way. Only after a few days of using it, iOS 6 looks so odd to me.

    Another thing I can't stand is the look of the buttons when receiving a call. That red text on transparent background is hideous.

    No need to grow on me, I always liked the UI.

    iOS 7 feels very half-assed and inconsistent at the moment. It'll improve over time, but iOS 6 is much more polished, obviously.

    It has really grown on me. I still think the icons could use some work in some cases, and the default background combined with the new color scheme is too candy colored for my taste, but it looks much better with just a nice photo for the background. And the lock screen is deliciously simple and beautiful.

    I loved it when I first saw it and now after using it for 2 days, I love it even more!

    A very beautifully designed system, looking forward to testing it out on the iPad!

    iOS 6 looks very odd and outdated now.

    Is battery drain a common problem with this beta?

    Yes, since developer debug overhead is running and reporting data back to Apple, and there's some memory leaks, too. I have a 4S, and its much slower than iOS 6... iOS 7 is probably unbearable on the iP4.

    Isn't it amazing how something new instantly makes the previous thing look old?
    Thats how iOS 7 feels to me.
    I've always liked it - since the moment they announced it and showed it off.

    My phone was almost dead by 6pm, when usually I can make it to the next morning without charging. So, yeah...

    You better have a doctor check on that. Might be serious.

    Have you tried General > reset > reset all settings?

    My battery was like that until I did that, now its perfectly normal.
