How can we compare the ulgy UI of Touchwiz or even the vannilla Android with this beautiful OS?It is stunning/fast/stable. No comparasion.You can hate alot Apple,but IVE has done a great great job with iOS 7. Again,Android looks uglyyy.

if you think android is ugly i can imagine how you look when you go out in the mornings, like a total duche! android can be customised to look any way you want it, and the most streamlined os right now is wp8, android, some other names then ios. in case you don't notice ios7 flat interface is looking alot like wp8. Microsoft should patent and sue

meh, just more andriod-like features. quick toggle switches, notification center from lock screen, the phone and the ui still looks the same just rows of flat icons now.

Is anyone else realizing it's a bunch of old white guys trying to push their latest junk on the masses?
