I purchased a new phone for my son for the holidays. It is all he wanted and he was using a 4S which we used an upgrade for so all in all not too bad. At 18 I figured that he would love the IOS 7. After 3 weeks of use he asked if we could reset it back to IOS 6. I said sadly NO but why. He tells me it is clunky, slow and dispite toning down the brightness he finds the colors irritating. he said the Icons look like little tikes play toys where the IOS 6 icons look polished and classy. The only plus to the IOS 7 he says is battery life. I think that has more to do with it being a new phone than the IOS. I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree, I am still on IOS 6 for similar reasons.
