And was amazed at how fast and clean the experience was. Look, I love iOS 7 and it's philosophy, and I'm not a hater, but it does irk me that an older OS opened and closed apps more quickly, went into multitasking more quickly and efficiently, and all around felt less cumbersome. Have you ever tried pulling up control center while reading to change brightness? I end up always initiating a page turn when I never meant to. Opening any app will show me an old screen shot of the app while it takes a minute to refresh, causing confusion and compounding the feeling that this is a slow OS. And I know there are many others on these threads that have complained about the screen's unresponsiveness while we way for animations to settle after unlocking/opening an app. I know the major argument is that half a second here and there doesn't make a difference, but going from using a device that seems lethargic to using one that feels instant makes a world of difference in daily use IMO. Design changes aside (I love the look of iOS 7, more or less)... how did they let the slowing of the OS occur after giving us one that was so instant and solid?
