I recently switched to a Galaxy Nexus for something "different". It has been great for about a week. ICS does certain things quite well (allowing integration with more apps, like for sending photos for example), or widgets obviously and the customization abilities. Placing icons anywhere is nice. But after about a week I picked my iPhone 4S back up, and the smoothness of the UI, the consistency of the interface, the SPEED at which it responds.
Despite a "stale" UI I still find I can do most things more quickly and smoothly in iOS. Spend a week away from an iPhone and you realise just how well apple has refined the user experience. I missed ios and my iPhone. Now I'm not sure I want to use ICS again
With that said I still hope Apple refreshes iOS 6 substantially to raise the bar yet again in UI design.

I don't think there is anything wrong with the current home screen, besides the fact that it doesn't support landscape view on iPhones or iPods. Small tweaks would be nice, but the homes screen isn't the big issue with iOS.
I really just want to see overall improvement in the area of getting stuff done quickly. It seems like the OS holds us back from what we want to do a lot of the time. Settings is a good example.
I want the settings app to be accessible no matter where you are in the OS so that you don't have to stop what you are doing, scroll through pages of settings until you find what you want to change, pull up the fast app switcher, and go back to what you were doing.
It would be cool if the settings app was put to rest, and instead have all the settings in Notification Center. They could be accessed by swiping to the right when you have the notification tray pulled down (Like Spotlight Search on the home screen.) This would include some quick toggles at the top for the stuff you toggle the most. Quick toggles like SBSettings have been on my wishlist for a while now. Then there would be all the other settings below that. That would be a good way to fix the multi-step process I mentioned above.
Just a thought.

Cards like in webOS would be awesome, but it'll never happen unless apple gets their collective heads out of their a$$es and realizes they aren't really the kings of innovation they make themselves out to be. Basically the same stale UI since '07 (except fast app switch and the NC) - no thanks, I'll JB and control my phone the way I want. Thanks tho.
