In my immediate circle, I know probably 70 people that upgraded to iOS7 on the iP4x and iP5's and not one single problem. What does that say? As far as I can perceive, iOS7 has been a great success. Some things can be ironed-out as I'm sure they will, but for you to make a blanket-statement like that is ignorant at best.
I know at least 10 people who have upgraded as well, and pretty much none of them feel genuinely happy with 7 one way or another...the main difference here is that we are no longer talking about bugs; it's about an overall dissatisfaction with the OS experience as a whole.
Thin fonts, too bright, terrible calendar app, flawed iPad version, lower battery life, slowness, UI lags, crashes all over the place, bad UI color choices etc. Never before have we seen such a flawed paradigm dismantlement at Apple - not even with OS X, which was a much more ambitious change for all, yet perfectly right in the medium term.
And to top the issues above:
- you HAVE to use the horrid iTunes 11;
- absolutely no possibility to roll back to 6.
NONE of the above are objectively or technically justified.
