Is it just me or does the new phone dialpad look super tacky?

It's almost as if Google or Skype or some other cheap tasteless third-party company contributed to the redesign. Ugh, I wanna vomit.

I think its nice....

Would be great if they incorporated searching for contacts using the keypad though.

If they didn't update it, then people would be complaining it was the same old design - they can't win.

Dude, the OS has had the same design for 5+ years.

Forgive the masses if they would like to see something new.

Looks good to me. Of course, it will look slightly different on the larger iPhone 5 screen.

I love the look of the new weather app on the iPhone. It looks very modern looking.

Is this what it's come to? Complaining over how the Dialpad looks? Do people even use it that much? Damn! I hate this phone every time I dial a new number I just want to kill someone.

i'm glad that they've finally changed it. the old design was a pain to use at times for me. this looks like it will be easier for me to see and use when needed, not that it ever gets much use as it is.

I like it, it helps people that can't see as well, I'd bet.
NO.

I can tell you (as I'm half blind/legally blind in the other eye) that the original keypad was perfectly fine. This however is awful. If you can't see very well, everything blends in. Especially since the type is much thinner and the letters are greyish against white.
