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.
