What about your opinion, C DM, seeing as OP asked you?It seems like plenty of people can, and some have actually gotten back to it.
There's nothing bad about it, people are just used to its looks and many just like/want newer things even just for the sake of them being newer, but that's more or less it.
I like having pretty things in my life, it makes me feel happier. Same reason people buy nice clothes and jewellery. No reason to be snobby about it. Of course function has its place, but there's no universal moral here about compromising one for the other. There's not always a clear cut distinction between the two. I have lots of gripes with iOS in general, but really haven't found the upgrade reduce usability or stability. In fact I use my phone a lot more these days, in part because cos it's prettier!This isn't directed at anyone in this thread but I don't understand trading usability and stability for a new look. iOS 7 isn't stable nor intuitive.
I can imagine myself going back to it, mostly for the performance as someone else pointed out earlier, but I'm OK with iOS 7--I'm not a fan of some of its designs and especially usability and performance choices or at least things that were overlooked in one way or another, but I'm OK with it in the overall sense of various other features that it brough with it.What about your opinion, C DM, seeing as OP asked you?
