Sydney Myers of Phone Dog on moving from Android to WP7
At the end of the day, it’s a grid of icons with a few widgets thrown in for good measure.
I understand that with Android, the customization options are endless. I realized, though, that the only reason I spend hours customizing the look of my device and trying out different launchers is because I don’t like the way it looks. […]
It seemed like no matter what I did to customize my device, it still looked ugly, cluttered, and like a beta OS. Yes, beta.
The grid of icons on Android is a copy of iOS and you get bored of those shiny icons. That’s not to say that one doesn’t get bored of the tiles. I sometimes wish they were smaller but I can live with Live Tiles that show information and aren’t just photoshopped reflections.
