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.

Does Metro improve usability does it make the applications more accessible ? I think if you were to honestly answer these questions, you would realise why the interface is a flop.


Honestly yes. To me Metro does improve usability as it provides me with more "at a glance" information than Android or iOS.

As far as "applications more accessible" that is kind of hard to gauge. iOS doesn't have a home screen and Android's default app drawer is a mess (lacking any customization/organization options). Either way it's about the same number of touches to get to a non-pinned application on WP as it is on Android or iOS.
