The flat and childish Hello Kitty design of iOS7 and up was and still is absolute rubbish. Apple must've been in collective retard mode when they made that decision! The skeuomorphic look of prior iOSs, on the other hand, is a work of art, and doesn't age at all. It wasn't broken, so why "fix" it?
In IOS you are the slave but in android you are the king of your device.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2018Why are Apple users obsessed with Android and upset over facts? Which facts? Androids abysmal fragmentation or ram/memory leaks?

iOS 1 and 2 was revolutionary in user interface departments, but after that things went to improving things slowly and to be honest was dead end against Android improvement by giant steps. Now still iOS looks like kind of "accesorry" OS while Android for serious work and tinkering.
like someone once said.. "iPhone is not a computer. It is a communication device tightly closed around by apple. Even its owner cannot move files around."
Android? Yes, it is a computer.

IOS still lacks the essential features a proper Operation system needs. No other OS lacks the basic ability to BROWSE in the files. Sharing features? Really basic. And not to mention the music transfer.
Sure, there's "Send anywhere" but i want it implemented to the core of the OS.
Kiyasuriin, 15 Apr 2018Do the same to Android GSMarena!They probably will do a similar article for Android but it will take more time. Android improved significantly through the years.

Android can't win no matter what.
So the custom skinned Android phones that can be set up to be cleaned and simpler than any iOS device(custom themes, launchers, icon packs, pie controls etc.) are bad and cluttered and the simple and clean stock Android experience is boring. But you prefer iOS and you supposedly use both. Allow me to not believe you.
No man it's the other way around iOS is years behind Android and the only way foreword for Apple's OS is to implement features that are already available on Android phones. This is more than obvious with all the iOS 12 wish lists that have been popping all over the internet.

You still holding a grudge on that for 11 years?

The notifications are not clean and definitely cluttered.
The home screens are also not clean and cluttered everywhere. While Android does have the App Drawer to avoid clutter, iOS after 11 years still cannot give the ability to freely move an icon anywhere on the home screen!

An Android developer once stated that iOS is at least 10 years ahead of Android. I both use Android and iOS but I actually prefer iOS because it's clean and less cluttered than Android.... Android is sick with manfacturers' skins over Android (Unless you have the dough for a Google phone which is quite boring to be honest).
So no... iOS is not stupid and ugly. Apple did computers long before they made a phone and they know what they are doing and they do it well and that's why they are still big in the market... Android, alas, is a mess in every way possible... and even now at Android 8, it still feels incomplete and lacking.
Apple is the leader when it comes to both software and hardware and no one can deny that... when Apple decides something, every one follows... Look at: fingerprint scanners, different sizes and colors, no headphone jack, animojis and now the notch.
Every one wants to be Apple.

Like i you do something wrong - then what you will do ? start over , right ? same is true for android.
