Coming From Android, the live tiles have been something new, spectacular imo and pretty amazing. I am used to having a lot of widgets and apps on the screen (rather than looking in the app drawer) on android. But when it comes to my 920 i just seem to be running out of space, there is just so much i want on my home screen, wondering if it would not be a bad idea for wm8 to introduce multiple screens.

I only use medium or large tiles for specific apps that have useful tile info that i want frequently enough, otherwise I use the small size for some app launching or items with counters. Not sure a multi-page design is in the spirit of Microsoft's new UI. Just like Windows 8, it has the long scrolling screen, albeit horizontal."Bro, you know I lift cause I use a Lumia 920..."

You can just make the tiles smaller. Maybe there could be tile folders in the future. Where you shove a bunch of tiles into one and the folder tile displays stuff. But multiple home screen is disorganized and creates clutter.

there are however some apps for which small tiles suffice (pdf reader, office, xbox games...)

Besides Tiles is/are windows mobiles USP and i dont think they are going to mess around with this too much, but adding multiple screens is something i think is very useful

Android lags like crazy, give it 6 months and you will need a 24 core processor to run key lime pie. I think apple products are overpriced

I suppose a swipe to the side could be slightly faster, but not by much.
On one side we already have Kids Corner, so we won't be able to swipe to that side. A lot of people have suggested that a swipe to the other side should be for notifications.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything!

Running out of room? how many apps do you want? i have like 16 apps already displayed when my screen i scrolled all the way up and can fit a lot more if i changed my tiles and 34 apps all together and i barely have to scroll Android can only fit like 16 right? Then keep scrolling and scrolling if you want more which is annoying. If you use widgets forget about having a lot of apps on your screen unless you use folders which doesnt realy give you quick access.
perhaps the issue is you have a wm8, i use a wp8

I'm with you and I posted a comment about this before. I love WP but I think I need some folders. I'm not sure what the best way to implement them is. I like to have a lot of apps. With the current setup, you ether A) have tons of apps pinned to your start screen which requires lots of scrolling or B) scroll thru the app list alphabetically. With option A, if you use the small tile to fit lots of apps on, you only have the symbol and no name so you have to memorize every apps icon.
My problem is that I can't always remember the name of an app. With my iPhone, I would have a network tools folder etc. and I only had to glance at 10 or so apps to find the one that I want instead of remembering that the bandwidth tester is under Q because it's full name is Quick Bandwidth tester etc.

There needs to be projector added to the phone. Press it and BAM!, on your wall you see 200 perfectly animated live tiles.
I think I'd use it every night before bed. Just have it project on my ceiling.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)
