Apples big contribution to iOS7 is making the background flatter....tweaking the calendar. It's like shifting chairs around on the deck of the Titanic. IOS6 they introduced Passbook and Maps hmmm....not quite the innovation that keeps you out in front.

Maps is the innovation that keeps you where you weren't going.

Ok, so no Sony Xperia Z? Ok, I'm very excited but until I read the article, my mood is completely "washed out".

Ok, I'm dead! x(

"iOS is a simple app launcher"....,precisely. Yet it reinvents itself and it's brilliance once a year by upping processor speed and megapixels. Unbelievable.

I need people to play JinxOnU with me, your score keeps on increasing and another feature is that you can showcase your Jinxer ability online, with this functional feature built into the app. Log on through your Facebook account for easy and optimum use, the game is free and everyday you will be provided with 1000 coins, as their promotional campaign. The Google play link for JinxOnu is as follows:

Here's a trick if you're experiencing any lag, which I've found to be different device to device, caused by certain apps that just don't jive (for whatever reason....something the iPhone actually does better than anyone imo).

-Go into Settings and turn off or just turn down the Scale for animations and transitions (you've probably done this)
-Also install something like Clean Master to see how much memory is being eaten up by certain apps and keep this clean (this made a huge difference w/ a Moto Droid HD Maxx)
-Turn off or uninstall all the bloatware (you've probably done this as well)

This helped me since I was seeing a difference in performance every time I switched Androids....some lower end Droids were running better, which doesn't make sense. I figured out it was just some apps.

hope that helps cut lag out completely...did for me.
