    Why did they change it and make it fugly? Looks like something you'd see on Windows 95, WTF?

    If you're going to update something, update something that actually needs changes and make it look sleek. C'mon apple.

    The whole color scheme of this update is off. I have no problem with the change in the dial screen, but then the in call scren is the old one.
    Isn't consistency is the first rule of design?

    The color scheme in apps comes down to developer choice.. apple released the option to developers.

    But yes, the dialer keypad is DAMN FUGLY

    FUGGLEEEEEE!!

    I don't like it either. iOS 6 has some nice features but the design decisions are a gigantic leap back.

    Agreed. It looks cheesy like something from Android. The previous dial pad looked beautiful.

    Speaking of colors, why is the status bar at the top of the screen sometimes blue like when you launch Settings, Mail, or Instacast? It looks horrible and it's inconsistent.

    I know it's absolutely nitpicky, but the lack of simple uniformity bugs me. Yeah, it still works the same, and yes, I know it's my thing. But still. It feels like to total package is lacking, whether it works or not.

    I do also. It looks very clean in my opinion.

    I think it's not too bad, more in line with what we see in new style web pages. But what's annoying me is I am not able to mute the key sound on dial pad any number button makes sound. Any one else having same issue?

    Ahh yeah! I didn't bring that up, but it's terribly annoying. Another fail in design. If it aint broke don't fix it.

    I don't think it's ugly, it just doesn't fit.

    It might fit if they used a more silver, iPad-like theme throughout the OS (as they did with Maps). Maybe they're actually giving us that UI revamp! They're just doing it one screen at a time...

    if that was true then the other 3-4 people in this thread would go against that, just like me

    Nope. I prefer it to the old one as well. Personally, I felt that the color scheme of the old dial was kinda off. You know, the bluish tint was kinda weird.

    But yeah the problem is uniformity, all the apps seem to be so individual and not work so well with each other in tone.

    I agree, I didn't understand the dialer and the flipping back to the old call screen. It's looks half thought out.

    I care. The old screen was easier on the eyes, particularly when dialing in the dark. Seems like they couldn't think of enough real features to add so they decided to mess with things that aren't broken.

    I'll probably get used to it, but I not like it now. Was kinda a shock to see - the old one was more elegant, IMO. Perhaps it's more visible in high ambient lighting conditions...:rolleyes:

    Nah, the designers were just bored and inverted the colors

    It's terrible. We're talking Android circa 2009 terrible.

    Hope they offer the option to return to the previous version but I doubt it.

    the phone, music app and battery indicator are just so blah. i really hate them. they look like a 2005 ipod take on things. or kindle options on their black and white reader. maybe they could have at least given the option between the new "sleek" and classic look we'd grown so accustom to.
