Interesting points made. My issue is with the review and reviewer. It looks lazy now that you have said it is a copy and paste exercise.
By the way. It states in the review that battery should not last as long due to apps automatically updating and checking for wifi/internet connections.
why cant these reviewers be professional and consistent

As i have tried playing games and running apps on both iOS and Andriod. Apps are perfect and smooth on iOS as compared to Android.

Just got my phone updated to ios 7 and must say its refreshing new OS, but since a use of over a day I feel that am over it. The colourful display appears shiny and glossy in the beginning with just like an animation kind of feel to it, but gradually the grace is gone because the simplicity, elegance and class of ios 6 cannot be matched.
It seems as if Mr. Cook has overdone in some places, and in the process he has ruined it all.
As far as the productivity is concerned it has scaled up and the utilities are helpful but the iPhone will surely be missing the feel of iconic Steve jobs and the class he created.
Overall, There's not much in ios 7 rather than annoying colours imported from Cadbury gems and smarties. But, some utilities are the need of the hour and thus ios 7 is a necessary evil. Although, I have decided to wait and not to update my iPad as of now.
Steve jobs will be missed forever and hope sense prevails over current management.
Cannon ball bouche, 19 Sep 2013Then what you are saying is that the review is inaccurate.
Its a shame they are still going ... moreim not saying its inaccurate, but im saying that i havent encountered any problems since last week. I restored and installed it last night just to have the final release instead of the GM, which shouldnt matter since its the same build, but you know, just in case.
I did notice tho that the review is mostly a copy/paste from the iOS7 BETA review written on June, 2013. I posted about this numerous times when the June review was bumped up top last week and my comments kept being deleted. Maybe those "lag" issues where from the Beta review, and not GM as specified, but who knows.
The only lag ive noticed is inside the new twitter app which was updated yesterday. It lags when you go from portrait to landscape to tweet, but thats an App issue, not iOS issue.
Battery seems to last longer, and apps update in the background at around the same time you usually open the app in the day. Lets say that you open facebook every day at 9pm. iOS recognizes this routine and by 9pm it will be refreshed with the lastest already without you having to open the app to wait for it to refresh. This is something done in the background that is very useful.

Its a shame they are still going for icons on a desktop feel similar to Windows '95. Golden opportunity wasted. Shame.

The colors used reduces the contrast between the text & the background making it less comfortable to read...
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2013While I agree with some of what you say. It cannot be ignored that the appstore has more apps ... moreout of those 79% users, how many people pay for apps on the Play store? Less than 30%. There was a report made the other day that theres far less android users that pay for apps than there is for iOS. Android users mostly download free apps. Free apps earn revenue from ads, which users hate, and end up deleting or not using apps due to ads. And besides, iOS apps runs way smoother than on android, which is why they usually develop for iOS first, or like you said, some exclusively.
harlekkin, 18 Sep 2013Again, I haven't read a single review of iOS 7 yet that suggests it doesn't do well at deliver... moreive even read reviews (huffington, purge, forbes) where they compare it with android and they say that the race between the two got to a point that they are basically tied. No OS is over or better than the other one in terms of functions. iOS just brought to the table basically what android has, and better. Theres nothing on android that cannot be done on iOS (except customization, of course)
Cannon ball bouche, 19 Sep 2013It cant run butter smooth as the review states it lags.but it does. i also had it installed since the GM version last week, and restored and reinstalled it yesterday and has been working flawlessly. No lag. But some people are reporting issues tho.
we've now on IOS7 and still there no simple way to delete syncd photos with in ipad. i still don't KNOW what's the problem allowing user to give this simple and one of the basic function.
iOS 7 is beautiful to say the least. I was a bit apprehensive before upgrading to iOS 7, but now, I have it running on my iPhone 5, iPad 3 and iPad mini. It's colourful, simple, elegant and progressive. I wnt comment on how it fares to the competition, since I have never used an android, but I am sure all Apple loyalists will absolutely love iOS 7. It retains the simplicity of all previous iOS versions and builds up on new features. The control center, the improved notifications and the photo gallery left me mesmerized. I wish all developers come up with apps to realise the true potential of the wonderful iOS 7.
Its beautiful. I really love using it. At first i wasnt sure but after a while everything grows on you and you realise how good it is. Clean, fast, fun. 5 stars thanks Ive.

Thats... moreI had already 4 Macs, and the were always expensive, more than double of similar PC hardware. iPhone never got me, not the old version nor this iPhone 5S, there's too much that I can't do with it, I don't have the freedom of installing a torrent app, I can't share a bluetooth file or photo with anyone, I am stuck with iTunes and so on and on.. so grow up!
