You can adjust the brightness.

I know, and even at full brightness, it seems darker. That, or the fonts are too skinny.

You can also change the thickness of the display fonts.

I know I can increase text size, but adjust font too?

That doesn't seem to change font on Safari web pages.

Another thing I've noticed, with a photo open you used to be able to share it with Facebook, or text or email it etc.. It seems like that option is gone now. Unless I'm missing something which is entirely possible. Now if I want to text someone a picture for instance I have to open the messages app and find the photo to send it. I'm finding this frustrating.
What phone model? Anything below a 4S isn't recommended for update.

Wish I'd have read this before I updated my iPhone 4 last week. I hate the new OS. It's too slow, and the autocorrect digs up words that I've never used before in my entire life. I would pay money at this point to reverse this procedure! And yes, I saw that it's impossible, posted here earlier. Also, contrary to an earlier posting, I think the screen is too bright, really don't like the white background. Oh well, it's just a phone.

There has to be someone out there with a way to get the old iOS back?

It's been 2 weeks now since my upgrade, and other than battery and lack of brightness, I really do like it. Two weeks ago, after the install, I really hated it.

I am glad I am not the only one with this problem, I thought I was going crazy.
Anyone know why this is? The autocorrect used to work very well and now it is a fight. It will even change words that are correctly spelled to something else sometimes.
