Graphics, User Interfaces Ever since I bought my HTC HD7 way back in October 2010, I have been hooked on Windows Phone. Without even being able to test-drive the new operating system (The Netherlands didn't get Windows Phone 7 until a year later), I imported the HD7 from the US - the minimalist, stark, clean, flat, and textual interface spoke to me, and I just knew I would like it. And like it, I did.

It's exactly that "retro look" that I'm complaining about. While it doesn't replicate an analogue element of the same function, it is modeled after an analogue function that looks similar to a digital element they wanted to include. Namely it's modeled after a radio tuning needle.

That's close enough for me.

No skeuomorphism. No need to find analogue doppelgänger. No angry podcast listeners.
