    I was bracing for the worst. There's been so much whining about 7 it's really been unbelievable. Do you all need a hug? :)

    I updated my IP5 and I don't see any of the "problems" people have noted. There is ZERO lag. The animation is incredibly fluid and flat out gorgeous.

    All of my apps are present and the new UI is absolutely beautiful.

    Access to the control settings is a bit different, but so what. I figure I'll just use the phone and get used to it over the next few days.

    Again, I want to repeat.

    1. the new UI is absolutely beautiful and sublime

    2. the animation is incredibly fluid and gorgeous

    3. the phone works perfectly.

    4. All of my apps work perfectly.

    5. There is no glaring difference between updated and non updated apps in appearance.

    I am really embarrassed for this forum. We have all been misled to an extra-ordinary degree.

    The update and install was flawless and the phone operates perfectly.

    I reserve the right to come back and gripe if/when I find a bug or minor issue however. :) :) :)

    Perfect. Since iOS7 is perfect you can tell me why tv shows and some Hilary mcrae music video (who I have no clue wh she is) show up on my ipad and there is no way to get them off. I don't have sync tv shows or music videos checked in itunes.

    BTW I have no issue with the look and fluidity. I am simply not that picky.

    No operating system is perfect. But iOS 7 is the best iOS yet.

    Far from perfect (wife's iPad 3) but not as horrible as many claim.

    I agree. Absolutely love iOS 7 and all the updated apps. I can't imagine using iOS 6 again. All the haters' threads and the comment sections on various tech sites drive me nut.

    The problem isn't that the animations aren't smooth, the problem is the literal time it takes to complete the animation. Plus, in iOS 6, you could start interacting with the phone while the animation was still going on, in 7 you have to wait all the way.

    I get they want it to be pretty, but at the end of the day no one cares how pretty the animations are, they just want to get sht done.

    Since I reserved the right to complain here I go:

    1. Siri sounds exactly the same: iconic, yet robotic.

    2. Siri is very, very slow.

    3. Siri's voice recog is still pretty bad; the transcripts show you how poor the recog is.

    4. about half the time, siri is not working at all (ie try again later).

    I never used siri very much with 6, except as a novelty, but I felt it worked a lot better before. Now, siri is a bad joke. A minor demerit, but a demerit nonetheless.

    So you've gone from iOS7 is perfect to a list of deficiencies :confused:

    Outstanding (where is that down vote button?)

    5. There is no glaring difference between updated and non updated apps in appearance.

    Third party apps not yet updated with flatter icons stick out like a sore thumb.

    2. Siri is very, very slow.

    I'm getting faster and more accurate replies in the UK than I ever did on iOS 6.

    Something looked a little 'off' with the UI, and remembered talk about all of the new wallpapers.

    5 seconds after choosing a dynamic, I felt a bit queasy, lol.

    The new statics are very, ahem, interesting. :)

    Setting the wallpaper does introduce a bit of lag, which is actually slightly annoying.

    My very first impression is that the UI is stunning. Dig a bit deeper, and there are definitely rough edges.

    Looking forward to .1!


    edit: as beautiful as 7 is, I may revert to 6. I don't know if it's 7 generally speaking, or if the dynamic wallpaper set me off.

    Perfect? Far from it. Ya it's a great refresh of ios 6. There's still plenty of bugs in GM.

    I like it alot, but it's not perfect. I don't mind the duration of the animations.

    Apple's servers are getting hammered. Siri was great last week, so give it a few days to calm down.

    "Perfect" to might revert to iOS6 in under an hour?


    It seems like for the iPhone, iOS7 is pretty good, but it's pretty ****** on my iPad. It seemed to have ****ed up my wallpaper which I cannot fix, and the dock is this MSPaint style gray block. Looks like most of it was designed in MSPaint to be honest. Folders how look really ugly without the ridge like before. Tons of lag where I never had it before, setting a wallpaper for example is RIDICULOUSLY laggy. I've never had a smartphone or tablet lag that damn hard.

    Heres my wallpaper before and after iOS7

    No operating system is ever perfect. There are always bugs to work out.

    Siri's new voice will download in the background over the next day or so. One day you'll just notice she's speaking much more clearly and non-robotic.

    Yeah l like it too. I just updated on my iphone 4 and it doesn't lag like I feared. Completely worth it.

    The new features are nice, but it looks horrible. 6.0 looked a lot better then this.

    iOS 7 is not perfect. It is, however, very nice to use, in my opinion.

    Dude siri is super fast.

    Female siri is extremely slow and confused.


    Music playback is glitchy. First track I tried wouldn't play.

    Video playback is non-existent right now.

    Having installed iOS7 on my iPhone 5 only a few hours ago, I can't imagine going back to iOS6.

    I like the interface and I don't experience any of the nightmarish problems people are reporting in other threads... so far. I haven't lost any data and the apps I own are working a before.

    Although not probably a perfect iOS (are there any, by the way?), things will hopefully get better for those users with difficulties in adapting to the new interface and usability of it.

    Just my two cents.

    Android, you're on the other side of the road, but I'm not gonna cross.

    But, I digress ....

    iOS 7 is good on my iPhone 4, but far from perfect. On an iPhone 5 or higher, iOS 7 would be great or even excellent.
