At first I was pretty stoked about getting a new OS for my iPhone 4s but after the novelty wore off I realized how terrible it was. Sure it looks great but it seems pretty ridiculous for a company to force an update that significantly slows ur device, crashes apps more often and drains your battery without giving you an alternative OS. One of the things I loved about my iPhone was its "snappiness" when going from app to app or just doing whatever but after updating to iOS7 that "snappiness" was definitely gone. Just opening my settings menu seems significantly longer. As for my battery I never had an issue with needing a recharge in the middle of the day until i updated. Usually I would have more than enough battery life to last till I went to bed. Nowadays I gotta charge more often in my car just to make sure I can make it through the day. Thats with all possible extra iOS7 features turned off. I know its a lot of complaining about a device that is considered "old" but I feel like apple could do a better job maintaining the functional integrity of older generation products. I've always been a fan of good design and things that just work, Apple happens to most of the time always fall within those categorizes and not to sound like a fan boy but I always defend or explain to family and friends why you have to pay a premium with Apple and why it's usually worth it. But after being forced to take iOS7 I can't help but think of the term PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE.
