    Don't know about you guys but I just downgraded from iOS 7 to 6.1.4. Personally, I don't like the new design starting from icons to what the calendar, reminder apps look like now. Also, it's too white and kinda mess with my eyes there the sun is bright outside and when I used my phone late at night. What do you guys think ?

    Haven't upgraded to 7, but I'm anticipating lowering my screen brightness when I do. It looks very bright.

    Yeah it is bright and quite frankly, It doesn't look like a typography Steve jobs would have approved because there is nothing as beautiful and cool like ios 6 or mac os. looks like the guy who designed windows 7 did it and there Are Too many unnecessary animation that make the phone lag a little.

    Yes it is bright, and poorly designed. It looks like windows and I'm sure Steve jobs wouldn't have appreciated the typography. It's not as beautiful and crisp like iOS 6 and Mac OS.

    I'm the opposite. I'm liking it and when I'm going from 7 on my iPhone to 6 on my ipad mini I'm finding I prefer 7. Each to their own I guess?

    I'm with you, I really like it. Took me a couple of days to remember where I'd seen the colour palette before.

    The animations are a real annoyance to me, they are too slow. The multitasking screen is probably the biggest failure of all. Not too sure if it's just beta lag?

    I don't think that's a beta lag because those have been on Cydia for a long time and I believe current iOS devices do not have enough ram to properly support live wallpaper, live icon like the new weather and clock, or app closing animation. That's just unnecessary

    Live wallpaper, live clock icon, app closing animation, live weather icon and multitasking animation. Even though I kinda think they are cool. I wasn't a big fan of those when I installed the tweaks through Cydia. iOS devices simply do not have enough ram to support it while keeping with the current flow if usage experimented on iOS 6

    The iPhone 4S and 5 could easily handle a live wallpaper, clock and weather. We've been doing this for years (jailbroken) on the old hardware and it's fine. It just slightly contributed to battery drain. The beta just needs the bugs worked out. This will be resolved by the GM. These simple tasks pale in comparison to a lot of the games that are available as far as resources used.

    I think it looks like an Android. I'm very disappointed and will probably not update.

    Unfortunately people will have to update or choose not to use many apps that may drop iOS 6 support.

    Ooh. In messages if you slide a message bubble to the left it reveals time stamps for each message. I didn't know that.

    *sigh* I wish they would at least keep the flat dock style.

    You'll have to find a developer that will give you one of their beta testing slots.

    How about it gets beta tested until as many of the bugs and glitches are fixed, then release it publicly? :)
