What do you think of the screen that pops up when you plug your phone in?

That says "....% charged?" I don't understand the purpose of this. The thing that really bothers me about it is it stays on screen for an unnecessary length of time, if you're in the middle of something and plug your phone in it can be disruptive. Didn't it used to just say very quickly "connected" or something?

What are you talking about? On the lock screen? What would you be doing on the lock screen that would be so important?
Oh my apologies it is only in lock screen. Still seems unnecessary and takes a while to disappear for you to resume activity.

It disappears after 5 or less seconds. I honestly prefer it compared to the old way. They old way was when you plugged the iPhone in, your lock screen picture would change to a large battery indicator with the current charge capacity marked with a green section on the picture of the battery.

Yeah I like keeping my background.

Oh yeah you're right, I think the reason this new way stands out to me is bc it disappears after a few seconds which reminds me that it was a splash screen whereas before it stayed on the charging screen and seemed more stable.

I think you just like complaining about change..it's less disruptive than before, and more informative. And still lets you see your background. It does not hinder performance or function in any way.

No I really don't, most of the things I've criticized have been genuine flaws and downgrades in the software. This obviously is not one of them, although you should be able to understand where I was coming from as explained.

It seems that you weren't even affected by that "screen" as it only shows up when locked yet you talked about it affecting you doing something as if it would come up while unlocked. And it's at least about the same if not better than pre iOS 7.

So you posted about an issue that you didn't even experience and one that was never any different (if not worse) before. What exactly would you call that?

It bothers me because you can't do anything during that period. Before you could instantly slide to unlock.

Really? I believe it was pointed out that before you still got a battery icon and all that when you would plug in and couldn't do anything during that time (which lasted the same amount of time if not longer than the iOS 7 one lasts). Is that not the case somehow?

Once again, I find myself in the apparent minority as I don't care about the screen that comes up.

And waiting 2.5 seconds does not seem a burden...at least for me.

But then, I'm easy to please.;)

If it bothers you so much, see whether jailbreak can fix your problem, get Android, or design your own OS system.

Complaining about minutia like this is being overly critical, in my opinion.
Especially considering the particular complaint isn't even real.

Allow me to completely blow this out of the water and nullify the existence of the issue as it was described: you can easily swipe on the screen with the battery information that appears for a few seconds when you plug the phone in and unlock the phone as usual from the lock screen. The problem is imaginary at best.

I'm sorry I'm going to have to disagree with you. What you label as genuine "flaws" no one else seems to care too much about. Proof:

"Has anyone had an issue of accidentally hitting "return"?"

"Why do they give you the option to send a text message to someone's email address?"

"You ever accidentally hit "v" when you try to hit the spacebar?"

The list goes on and on. It's like you try to start a pot conversation without being high.

this does't bother me.

what does is watching a video and needing to adjust the volume and have that popup stay p for a bit and i miss some video...and if i mistakenly hit the screen it brings up more popups with the volume control and video playback marker.

thats one part that i liked about a video player on Samsung S4/Android (not sure what it was, i tested it for a month-VX player?) anyway, you would just swipe up or down on screen for volume and left or right to control playback.

Not really, most of my criticisms are legitimate flaws.
Flaw? How is displaying the battery percentage for a brief period of time a flaw?

It being displayed does not keep you from being able to do something with your device.

The instant you plug in the device and it is displayed you can unlock your device.

You should seek professional help.
Agreed. His posting history are all complaints about any change, regardless of whether it's good or bad.

Yay! Another "something has changed. Doesn't matter whether it's more or less useful. It's just different so I don't like it" thread by TH55. :rolleyes:

And it actually hasn't changed, and the problem described doesn't even exist.
