A poll conducted by Polar found that users prefer user-interface elements of iOS 7 compared to iOS 6.

Please note that this poll did not compare the icons of the two iOS versions -- which is where a majority of the design criticism has derived from.

The poll compared various interface elements such as the default buttons, progress indicators, Notification center, keyboards, navigation bars, alerts and much more.

Overall, the poll found that iOS 7 received 72% preference while iOS 6 received 28% when it came down to the various elements of the UI.

Polar also conducted an iOS icon comparison where many of the iOS 7 icons were preferred over iOS 6. Settings, Camera, Game Center, Safari, and Siri icons were the only iOS 6 icons people preferred compared to iOS 7.

Then count me in the minority, because I do not like the icons in iOS 7. They are flat, like a bad 70s science fiction movie. I like texture, I like detail. When you put time into detail, it tells me that you care, when you give me flat icons... It tells me you are out of ideas on how to make things better and are trying to distract me with something ugly. If apple desires innovation, then innovate. Give me the ability to alter the interface icons, give me the ability to change the way it looks and feels. Empower me the user, give me the reason to like you, over the next dictator.

----------------------- >> IOS7 activations available! << ----------------------- >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Just see people comments on my posts below, satisfied with my service and go ahead with me if you like.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< I am an Apple Developer with UDID's slots available. If you want to activate your iOS 7, please send $7 USD via Paypal to djlsb@sapo.pt (along with your device UDID) this will allow all beta releases manually and even OTA, and my extreme support for 11 months! Why worry about being blocked by Apple down the road or bricking your phone when you can have the real deal? Just because you can activate your phone with the current beta doesn't mean Apple will allow it in any subsequent betas or release candidates and with this method yes. New developer slots available. Hurry and get yours now!-------------------------For people that are here only to say my service are SCAM and i'm a douchebag, and people don't need UDID registered, i'm not here to offend anyone and i'm not intend so, but because of you people are getting their iOS devices going black because of you only, and they are asking me for help day by day. And just one more thing, they are satisfied and i had sent a proof of UDID register to all. And if you say that apple rules doesn't allow to sell UDID slots, you don't know what you are talking, because for all effects i'm not selling UDID slots, i'm selling my precious service and help, even remotely by team-viewer for all they wan't or need in this process, now and in the future, and i haven't anyone unsatisfied, and even when it happens i refund----------------------------
