    I love the new tile sizes

    So Windows 10 Mobile it is.

    Hamburger menu, file manager UI and dialer… Not good.. they are making WP ugly…
    and yes.. the ON/OFF switches..

  • Jay Teare

    the dialer llooks like the lines have gone and its smaller… not too bad. like the start screen and the bigger gaps between the tiles to show more of the picture behind. would be nice if every app has a transparent option to it.

    It’s like Metro has completely disappeared:
    The dialer is a carbon copy of the one in Android KitKat.

    Audio recording app has the Android L trademark circle button at the bottom of the screen.

    Windows Phone style buttons completely removed from the settings app.

    The only thing that looks WPish is Xbox Video, for how long though?

    It looks as if they are preparing for Android apps on W10.

    • I’m of the feeling that Metro on these devices wasn’t even of any value. It wasted screen estate with big fonts and headers showing next to nothing when it came to the information part.
      The only good thing about WP is the start screen and that’s being improved with time. Metro as general is dead.

      I like the design improvements. Another story that WP will look more like android now so better buy that only. Cortana is gonna come one day. What else will be missed? :p

        I have to agree. Alot of friends have said the os looks boring which can definitely be a factor for some. I don’t care that much but I like the new phone ui. Its more windows 10 era. WP8 still looks alot like 7.x which is pretty dated now.
