Old fashion look.also like wp and iOS.wake up people! jolla and bb10 are much more better.after ics google do no make updates just face lift as 4.1 2 3 are,shame on google
This is not iOS, so even if it would look good, it wouldn't because it's not iOS... They haven't told us how innovative and next best thingy it is, so we shouldn't worship it. Besides the Gallery icon doesn't look like a gay pride parade - like Photo and Game Center does. And last but not least they haven't stolen anything from anyone so we can't brag about how original it is.

if you say android is "bland", it is because that is the intention. Google lets each manufacturer have a say in the UI, look at samsung and HTC and MIUI.
Looks basic. iOS7 is so pretty that even you don't change theme and look at the same UI for one year you wouldn't get tired. Android looks so generic and bland. It's not a sight to behold.

The logo is not that good but except the logo may be this time Google will bring something real new with its KitKat Android.
I see "KEYLIMEPIE" under Android logo!!

I seriously prefe... moreThey know that 95% will not install a texting app from Google Play, and even if they wanted to, when they just bought a new phone and just inserted their SIM, they can't install anything before they set up a Google account. So they are stuck. Very dirty business Google, I'm ready to jump off the android train. If iPhone5s had 4.3 inch display I would be out already. Hmmm, maybe a BB Z10 can tide me over?

It will still take a while for OEMs to follow but in the end...
