I am sure that it has all these kinks is because it is still in beta.
I'm still liking my iPhone 5 after becoming an early adopter. My only gripe is that the aluminium can get chipped just by looking at it. A case can protect it, but there's no stopping stray bits of debris getting into it.
It's still a great phone though. Not as customisable or easy to tinker with as my SGS2 was but then you can spend hours just doing that, and still not get something you like. The iPhone keeps it simple and useable without any gimmicks.
iOS 7 should bring it in line with other OS. I'll judge it when I get it and move back to Android or WP8 if I don't like it
Love the lightness and unobtrusiveness of iOS 7! Some icons like the weather icon seemed too light and cartoonish at first, but that's natural following 6 years of skeumorphic design. Now after a couple of betas, it makes perfect sense. Hats off to Sir Ive. Again.
some improvements.. Skype working for me but also crashing when clicking on "Recent"..
I was hoping for a Little more stability with some "key" apps :-(
Still prefer the older icons,,they should do a default option so you can revert back to the old icons.

Thanks In Advance

There 1000 of different icons for you to choose from in Android. That is the beauty of Android. You can also install your gorgeous icons for $1.00-1.50 in playstore, which is ugly.
iOS 7 beta 4 still have some problems -
1) after signing in skype > Recent > it closes automatically
2) Google translate can not open
3) As I mentioned before call function still have problem > sometimes you can not ignore calls there is no option > just swipe to answer only

Apple should hire icon designers from MIUI or Android's developers. These icons look so ugly and you can't even change it. Look at the setting icon, it look like a cooking burner's coil, seriously.

But this new... more Here's blue wallpaper http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/68094000/png/_68094937_ios7.png again not that bad. I dont understand why they use that pink purple wallpaper on their press photos. Something more basic would have worked better and people wouldnt whine about icons, because the wallpaper made those icons looks much more colourish.
Aycaramba, 29 Jul 2013iOS 7 - The most advanced girly OS in the world. :)Actually, iPhone and iOS both are girly things...accept it its a fact...;)

Here's ok looking iOS7 it doesnt have wallpaper, but you get the point http://i.imgur.com/aSxt8PV.png
Huge difference, also when you use those 3rd apps and their icons its going to look almost same as before.
