Just out of curiosity which start screen do you prefer and why? For me do like WP8 home screen but not as much compared to WP7 start screen. The reason being it looks a lot slicker and retro/cool with the black strip on the right hand side. Pretty much everything else is the same except the kernels. But pretty much wanted to hear WP fan opinions . On a side note, I was using a samsung focus but switched to an iphone 5. I was looking into the lumia 920 but instead I am going to wait out until the surface phone is available.

When we first saw the WP8 start screen this summer I wasn't sold on it. It slowly grew on me though. The small tiles are beyond useful for me. I missed the negative space, but I like the new symmetry a lot.

I honestly didn't think it was possible to like the WP7 start screen more than WP8. Wasted space and less productivity per inch plague the WP7 start screen. It still brings me joy to look at the older layout, but merely for the nostalgia factor.

Aye, I agree. I get SO MUCH AWESOME on my 920 screen contra my 800 screen. The 800 is what... 4 full tiles and 2 half tiles per screenview? Dislike the WP7.5 screen far more than for instance Android and iOS, the WP8 startscreen is far better than all of those three.

Once you get things adjusted just right... the Windows Phone 8 Start Screen. I like having my contacts using the smaller tiles to fit them four across. Then there's the large tile for Amazing Weather that actually has a written forecast.
The nice thing about it all is that if you do prefer the look and feel of the Windows Phone 7 Start Screen, there's nothing stopping you from using only the medium tiles on WP8.George Ponder
