Looks pretty cool. But definitely not worth the money imo. I really wanted to try the new ios7. They said 5c was suppose to be cheap, I can get a Lumia 925 in less than $550! :\
I note that you can now "Set the default direction type in Apple maps" - like from Lost to Totally Lost ?
AnonD-162568, 11 Sep 2013Lol the new interface looks like cartoon. Its not even comparable to Windows phone 8 Metro UI.... moreFluid? I didnt find it any fluid when waiting for those endless animations. It may be fluid to look at but the workflow is the opposite of fluid by the slow. Most annoying phone OS ever, feels defective.
STP, 11 Sep 2013Seems fast with all those transitions, on my android (cm) i've partly removed the animations, ... moreYes, and its even more obvious in WP8, Lumia 920 must be the slowest phone ever. Android doesnt force you to wait, being a true multitasking system it is accepting input also while doing animations. Even old android like note 2, put it beside any iphone and start flipping home and app pages, its so much faster on the android phones. Some people are however not so smart, they see the android phone dropping frames now and then, and they mistake it for lag, which it is not, it simply (and thankfully) does not give full priority to displaying the boring animations in full, it is still open for user input, and i wouldnt want it any other way, dropped frames here and there does not bother me at all, and with more powerful phones even that is not a problem.
looks like apples version of windows vista.
new face, some tweaks but nothing new there at all.
i wish this was something to get excited about, it looks like samsungs old 'bada' os before they went andriod, i really am struggling to see anything game changing, apple used to set the standard but now... not so much. its a real shame that.
HooDooVooDooMan, 10 Sep 2013iOS requires less ram and slower processor to run it. Android requires more atleast 2 or 3 gig... moreIos is restricted operating system, it doesn't need powerful processor.
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2013It's more beautiful than that terrible UI of Windows 8.compare music app side by side
Seems fast with all those transitions, on my android (cm) i've partly removed the animations, just to make it fast as hell. no wonder ios feels stable, it's sneaky loading the app while showning that second long animation. I haven't have this patience with phones, shame seems nice but not enough improments.
AnonD-2461, 11 Sep 2013i wonder is the ios7 become smoother with the new simple ui..Lol the new interface looks like cartoon. Its not even comparable to Windows phone 8 Metro UI. Metro UI is elegant and fluid.
phil, 02 Jul 2013"Very iTunes dependent for uploading files and multimedia" But itunes works everytim... moreI treat my android phones as additional memory/drives....just cut and paste and I am good to go! Never used HTC Sync manager...never needed to!
Very very poor UI what is this ! Is that apple's minds. Flatbig icons !
hasan002, 31 Jul 2013how can i update to ios 7 beta?in your case... NEVER! 3:)
