    We went from edge to edge design to a an ugly, extremely rounded card view.

    Huge bolded fonts that just makes me wanna gag, what happened the to the title bar?

    A lot of the elements take up a lot of space as well, the menu bar for iMessages? Terrible!

    Honestly... I think the new lockscreen notifications look a lot better. Especially with the extra functionality they add. I think Apple is spot on with their direction with iOS.

    I like many aspects of the new design, I actually quite liked the big fonts. What I wasn't sure about was the design for notifications, I like the current edge to edge design. I guess well see what its like on an actual device.

    It's very... Google. The cards. It does look fresh and new though and I like it.

    They never discussed improvements with battery life. I have a feeling it'll get worse with iOS 10.

    Agreed. I feel like it'll look even better on a device too.

    The grammar in your thread title is ugly.

    Worse than what? My battery life has been the same since iOS 8.4.1 and I'm on 9.3.2

    Within iOS 9, the best battery life I've had was with iOS 9.2. Since then, it has been crap, even with an iPhone 6 Plus/6S+ with a fresh install and without restoring a backup. With these enhancements to iOS 10, I have a feeling it'll be even worse.

    You have an option to turn off photos in the contact list to begin with. I'm sure that if you turn that off, it'll default to the regular title view in iOS 10.

    EDIT: No, it doesn't. :( But that could always change.

    I really like the changes (but things could definitely be refined). I'm already used to the idea of rounded cards because it's how peek & pop and 3D Touch look.

    Don't forget that there will be many revisions before official public release, so we may still get edge to edge.

    Minor revisions yes, but I doubt they would do such a dramatic shift. Im guessing the new design is here to stay and will be refined before release.

    The new look takes a lot of cues from watchOS, notifications especially.

    I really like it.

    Sorry to hear that. My 6+ still has the same battery life of 10-12 hours

    I am still undecided. Clearly this is beta 1, and I have some concerns. My biggest knock is the fixed size of each item on that screen - and I expect that it will be something that the developers will need to embrace ... and variable sizes MAY be based on third party app updates... for example, both BeWeather and Fantastical 2 have truncated displays... can't see the full forecast on BeWeather nor can I see the full monthly calendar and/or appointments in the Fantastical window.

    It looks good on the notification bubbles and 3D touch, but that Proactive screenshot above looks hideous. Control Centre also looks terrible, but overall looks decent for a coat of paint. Quite sure this will change through the beta process. Relax guys.

    Music is ugly.
    The lock screen widgets are ugly.
    The lock screen with music playing is ugly.

    At this point, I'm just happy we get any change at all. There's nothing more boring than zero visual changes (such as iOS 4-6).

    Music app is HORRIBLE. Its so horrible, in your face and over the top. They have improved or made anything easier, well certain elements are nice but its too IN YOUR FACE and it actually really hurts to look at, there is a reason I chose the iPhone 6s Plus to display everything small - this hurts my eyes.

    Hahahaha. Yeah.

    iOS 7 beta complaints all over again.

    I, in turn, like all the redesigns.

    There were some visual changes in those versions as I recall, like to the status bar and the whole notification redesign and notification center part of it.
