...my phone crapped out and I had to restore it. Fun!

My boyfriend has had some beta version of the update for months so I already knew I didn't like the look of it. Now I am just doubly pissed that I have to deal, yet again, with getting my information restored.

It's weird it looks...less sophisticated. I can't find another word to describe it. I'm a fan of obscenely thin typefaces so I am fine with that, but the icons are bright and graphic and not in a good way. Are there any options for changing the interface design at all? I tried to see if I could do something with the fugliness that is iMessage but I see nothing in the settings.

What do you guys think? I've used Apples all my life—hardware is near perfection but their software is just a fucking mess sometimes.
