Couldn't take the glitches, random restarts, etc.
When I got back to 6, I found it muuuuuch smoother, faster.
I know it's only beta 1, but they have a lot of work to do.

Well, I'm actually a DEVELOPER and I don't use it on my main device. So it's fine for me.
I use it on my main device, I dont find it that bad actually. Besides the battery issue which I made a little bit better on my device!

First rule of iOS7 beta is: DEVELOPERS ONLY.
Second rule of iOS7 beta is: DEVELOPERS ONLY.

I'm tired of this "cool kids in the block" wannabes complaining about a beta and how much work this needs and trashing out iOS 7 for being buggy, then saying... going back to iOS 6, gonna wait for final release, sorry Apple.

iOS 7 beta is not meant for the average user.

No its not, BUT if you arent a developer you CAN try it at your own risk if you like!!!

Many people, like myself, were anxious to try it! There is nothing wrong with that. Also he wasnt complaining, just mentioning!

Lol bet your back tomorrow. iOS 7 is my daily driver and doing it better than iOS 6 ever did
Except for, you know:

- the decrease in battery life
- animations taking twice the time
- lag (even on iPhone 5)
- bugs
- graphical glitches with apps
- some app incompatibility

And in terms of subjectivity:
- horrid icons

iOS 7 is nice to play with, not for daily use unless you like charging your phone 3x a day.

That is what happened with me. I went back to ios 6 and not even 24 hrs went buy and i loaded ios 7 again. I am starting to really like the new ios. And i can deal with the minor problems. For me, since i am using an iphone 5. The only real stuff i have to deal with is apps not working. Or a minor glitch here and there.

Do you consider yourself a heavy user / gamer?

I concur. Most people just like to fumble with the betas because they want the latest software, and then go on to complain and whine alot about there are glitches here and there and the experience sucks.

Apparently, seems like some people don't quite comprehend the full meaning of the word "beta".

Well if you only have one phone, it was pretty dumb of you to download beta 1.

I have 2 iphones - one for the beta, and one that I can count on.

Let me chime in and say that I am not a developer and have had an iPhone since the first one released. This is the first time I have felt compelled to install a Beta on my device and the reason being I had been waiting for a change in UI design for a long time. The excitement on my part was too big to wait. I understand the "for developers only" label and I understand what a Beta software means. I have glitches just like anyone else but am willing to see this baby through till the end. So far other than a few apps not working and battery drainage I haven't had much problem and the small issues I do have I'm willing to put up with and not complain because at the end of the day its my own damn fault haha. It looks stunning in person and with the right wallpaper. Just my two cents, and good luck to everyone. Ohh and I agree completely with the above poster.

Me too. Tried it since release but had enough last night and just DUFed and went back to iOS 6. I understand that it's a beta and there will be lag and things like that so the occasional lag wasn't the problem. It just feels much heavier than what I'm used to. They tried to go minimalist with everything but somehow everything from the icons to the apps and new features just feel heavier and clunkier. Felt like android :(. Sad thing is that I really truly tried to like it. Apple really has their work cut out for them before they release the official version.

Well my Android Nexus 4 feels light and zippy, so not sure what you mean by that.

I'm really hoping they release the iPad beta soon however. The fact they didn't shows they are behind IMO.

However, complaining about a first beta being buggy, is ridiculous. If they release a final that sucks, sure open the flood gates, but nothing is more infuriating as a software developer than having people criticize a WIP like it's a final product.

Trust me, the developers themselves know way more about what is wrong with the software than the end users do. Everyone just be a little patient and we'll see what is actually delivered.

Why did you feel the need to start a new thread when there are several already? You can't tell us anything we don't already know. You are just trolling, aren't you. Of course iOS 6 is faster and smoother - it is not a beta.

If people want to pay $99 to try it, great for them.

I'm tired of them starting a thread announcing they are going back to iOS6.

Oh sorry if its just for pro users like you. Heavens knows all the years of computer sci you spent at Stanford qualifies only you to try out the beta...

Ugh....that's the problem. People just "wanting to try it", then complaining about it being buggy, not ready for prime time, bad battery life etc. Betas aren't released for people who just want to try something out. And how many of these people are reading beta release notes, doing proper testing and providing feedback to Apple vs those just trying it out and then coming to a site like MR to complain and say they're downgrading or going Android or whatever.
