Icons in rows vs tiles in rows. Is there really a difference? Not much really. The only difference is now WP people like yourself seem to think it's cool to look down your nose towards icons because WP adapted tiles. Icons are still extremely relevant, get over it.

Don't visit Myspace, can't say. Icons on my phone look great though.

You still visit Myspace? wow

Thanks for sharing that incredibly biased opinion. Completely off base, but it's all yours, you can do with it whatever you like.

BTW, you might want to update your profile, it shows you wanting an Android tablet. Guess you like icons after all.

That's.. Yes, I've eliminated all my android products besides my wife's nexus 7.. It will go next. I've been putting my money where my mouth is and will be only supporting WP for the forcible future.

Good luck with that. Personally I don't limit myself to one OS. My phone is Android, my desktop is Windows, and my laptop is Ubuntu.

I don't put all my eggs in one basket.

I've owned and tried everything. I just prefer windows to all else. I don't use a desktop anymore but the one we have runs wp7, for home and work I use my surface pro 2, phone my L1520.

No, it's not... There is not a single reason why it's better. Seriously, you are getting Microd*cked very badly.

He is just show off or just boasting. In his had it list he has added note 3 and lg g2. Seems he misunderstood that retail store hands on means owning the device.

I wonder why would someone who's constantly bashing Android, calling it laggy, unsecured, outdated, myspace OS, waste his money on the Note 3 and the G2.

Oh you know me? Unlike you moronic fandroids I actually buy phones every couple of months.. I'm a TECH fan, not a narrow minded little kid that lives with his mom and works at McDonalds.
ahhh leave mommy alone, she can't afford to buy you another phone

Icons suck.... That's the difference.. They're old school... Old, and they suck... If your start screen is full of useless icons then it sucks... Case closed.
