Just looks like windows phone to me, especially from the relase video. All the new animations and gesture are all just ponced off the galaxy aswell, really don't like what they are doing. The one thing on the iPhone that was consistently good, they've gone and fucked with it. Should have given us an iPhone 5s and stuck to the normal pattern.

I am running iOS7 on an iPhone4. Has its pro's and cons (like you'd expect from a beta version).

My pro's:

The music player and layout is a lot better
Closing / switching between apps.
Shortcuts to clock / alarm
Addition of torch and calculator

Cons:

Very android looking
Few apps are not 100% compatible
Clock / slid to unlock is hardly visible if your background is light
Keeps switching phone off for 20 seconds

Its not bad and I imagine will get better and the full version should be slick. I know people running it on iPhone 5 and its quicker and slicker than the 4, but expected as 4's will be phased out soon.

Yeah if you know someone with an apple developer account think they can add your device and you can get it as a beta. Someone on here will probably be bale ot hook you up.

they'll run diagnostics on it. I took mine after it was doing the same but the report said i had a decent average battery life.
tried arguing my point which was the same as yours but didn't get a new phone

^I've had the same issue recently brodie. What's your signal/data reception like?

O2 have been doing some work on masts near to where I work and it's played havoc with my signal. I think my battery is being drained as it is constantly trying to reconnect to call and data services.

I'm with 3 so my signal is sometimes crappy but mostly fine. I've done as much as possible to limit usage - turning brightness right down, closing apps, turning off push emails etc - nothing seems to make any difference.

edit:this could be the culprit - http://smartphones.wonderhowto.com/how-to/fix-battery-draining-issue-your-iphone-after-updating-ios-6-1-3-0145493/

Just wanted to warn anyone thinking of upgrading. It is, by some distance, the buggiest beta I've ever used. Battery life is terrible, phone resets itself from time to time, loads of 3rd party apps don't work at all, etc. Luckily I have it installed on my development phone, there is no way I would want it on my primary device.

If you really must have it, I would wait for the 3rd or 4th beta release, by then it will be a lot more stable.
