    Anyone dislike this? Its clear android rip off. It's ***** ugly and slow. iOS6 animations are miles better.

    The layering of the OS is pretty decent. They are just tooooooo damnnnnn slooooowwww. Even the fade-in on the lock screen is getting annoying even though it looks pretty.

    Yep, clearly an Android rep off. :rolleyes: So you're saying the Android animations are ugly and slow?

    Have you used beta 4 yet? They're much faster.

    They're slow even on beta4. Take a look at iOS6 animations. This isnt even close. Its just not iOS quality.

    It's a beta. Just like they've gotten faster in beta 4, I'm sure we'll see them get somewhat faster in future betas.

    Have you used a Galaxy S4 recently? Those animations stutter when you go into and out of an app.

    They need to speed up the open/close app animations in my opinion, as well as the unlock-icons-sweep-in and the lock-fade.

    Who cares what android does

    Agreed. My iPad is still running iOS 6 and switching apps, opening the multi tasking tray, etc, feels so quick, ******, and effortless (especially when using gestures).

    Going into multitasking on my iPhone is slow, clunky, crashy, and even unintuitive at times.

    We've got a couple more betas on the way so hopefully all will be sorted out soon enough.

    Thats because the S4 faked their GPU benchmarks :p

    (no really they actually detect benchmark apps and bump the speed of the GPUs: http://www.anandtech.com/show/7187/looking-at-cpugpu-benchmark-optimizations-galaxy-s-4)

    The fact that they speed it up very very slightly every beta is proof they can just to CRANK UP the speed and be done with it. Its all millisecond timing anyway. Not sure why they wont other than for the OOOOOH AHHHHHH effect that lasts about 5 minutes.

    Again, people like you is why I get my account suspended every other week, yes, "it's a beta" argument applies here.

    And they got faster from beta 3 to beta 4, and most likely will be even faster in the next 2-3 betas.

    We are at least 2 months away from iOS 7 public release.

    Saw that today, but that's irrelevant. It still has a more powerful processor regardless of what Samsung did to it so it should not be stuttering.

    I think they're just trying to get it right. People will complain no matter the speed so it's a lose-lose situation. I'd personally prefer it to be slightly faster when unlocking the device, but I wouldn't throw a fit if it stayed how it was now.

    I think the animation speed is fine with beta 4, but there is a noticeable lag after pressing the home button until the animation starts. The lag has been there since the first beta.

    I think that's because it's waiting a beat to see if you're going to double-tap it and activate the app switcher. A slight delay there is probably necessary.

    Gogurt48 is right, plus if you have anything assigned to triple-click Home, it waits even longer.

    Then why wasn't this being complained about in iOS 6? Both of those features worked in fine but there wasn't this noticeable lag. In any case, I imagine it will be fine once the GM is out.

    Why is it when the iPhone gets a new feature that Android has had "its a rip-off!" and when Android finally gets "Find my phone" after 3 years we (Apple people) don't care.

    I also find it funny now that Android has a iphone control center theme on their appstore.

    I'm sure if the AppStore wasn't so curated there'd be a bunch of Sense and Touchwiz looking stuff in there.
