Windows 10 Mobile: How to have Phablet UI on smaller Lumias (Start, Action Center, Multitasking, Landscape UI).

We yesterday reported about the new scaling slider in Windows 10 Mobile Build 10549, that lets you have Phablet like four medium size tiles on start-screen of devices with display size of even less than 5-inch like, Lumia 1020.

So, we explored more and as you can see in screenshots it is not limited to only four tiles on start screen but it also extends to Action Center, Settings landscape UI, Multitasking UI. Action Center has five action buttons in a row after scaling to zero on the slider.

Build 10549 Phablet

10549.4.landscape

10549.2.landscape

Though this is the first implementation of this feature and it has its own share of bugs.

  • Multitasking doesn’t work in portrait mode
  • Start Screen may flicker or get unresponsive at times
  • Settings may crash at times

Still it is good to see Microsoft adding features that lets one customize Windows 10 Mobile much more and regarding bugs, they can be taken care of in subsequent builds.

    Sorry but this is on the 536 build too…
    Confirmed on my Lumia 920 and 1520.

      No way this is on 10536. I still have 10536 on two of my devices. The slider is not there.
