Check out the newest screenshots from Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft might be releasing Windows 10 next month, but the mobile version of its latest operating system would probably be shipping in September at the earliest. Besides the opening of the Windows platform for easy porting of Android and iOS apps, Microsoft has demonstrated Continuum, or how one and the same app, like Outlook, can start off on the phone, then move to a tablet, then to a laptop or even a much larger screen. The kicker is that not only your work seamlessly transitions between those, but the interface morphs to adapt for the different input methods on all of these devices...

True, not many put a beautiful custom theme. But... Making the stock home screen clean is as simple as not putting shortcuts on it. I have a beautiful widgets clock and a folder with my most used apps. That is super clean efficient and beautiful. Plus a background switcher with a new landscape everyday. It mostly looks like my Win 7 desktop. Which is why I am still revolting against Win 8 and anything resembling it. We told them years ago during the 8 preview that it wouldn't fly and they are still having a hard time listening.

To each his own, for me the tiles are much more suited to what I do. Including tile folders. I could never get as much upfront simple info as I do on a wp that I could with android and not have it be slow or crap to use. This is from personal experience.

Much better and professional looking than the material design crap on android.

So put a launcher with tiles on Android, done. And if you like tiles, material just makes it better, not worse. Material is perfectly capable of being flat with lots of colored boxes, and little strings of data that you can hardly read. Fortunately developers make custom widgets that actually fit their content.

The day android can handle 50 or so tiles on a home screen without to much trouble, I will consider what you have proposed. I have gone the 'widget' route and it is imo not as efficient. Not to mention can be battery consuming.

50! I hope it doesn't run 50, that's a seizure in the making. I just want one or two nice ones.

I use my phone more than just calling and texting. I have like 190apps. I do not use them all daily by any means. However I have at least 10 apps that I use live tiles for. Which on android so far has been a messier experience to deal with to get the same experience.

I don't know; something about this home screen just looks more cluttered & less streamlined, or something. Maybe it's just the tiles/layout chosen for this demonstration.

Usually the demo, pre laid out tiles don't do the UI justice. If you want to see something impressive, go and see homscreens in forums, made by actual users.

They never have a good ui demo imo. Here is my UI that I rocked for a long time.http://imgur.com/VTLgR4j

See, that's what I'm talking about: simple, effective, streamlined. Very nice.

I don't comment because I'm a hater, I comment because I have to use windows and it's all I use on PC so I'm invested in seeing it improve. I will happily admit I'm wrong if someone shows me how to easily improve the default options. I'm just a little worried because I have yet to see that there are viable options.

Looking pretty decent so far.

While I like the Live Tile arrangement, the rest of the OS just looks unpolished and very basic. If WP 10 really supports Android based apps, it would be nice to be able to use Google apps, such as Hangouts (a must for me, since I ported my number to Google Voice) and Maps.

Microsoft needs to improve the Volume control, the way the phone is silent and separately handle the volume of ringer and notifications.
