I am not a Windows Phone user, but have a few questions.
I see you can put an email tile on the homescreen, but can you put on for each email account on there? Such as three - Hotmail, Personal and Work accounts...?
Also, I assume you can put WhatsApp icon on homescreen and see digits to show if messages have come in - but can you also put links up to click on and take you straight to a personal convo from a person?
Lastly, do apps on the homescreen like News feeds or Weather feeds, drain the battery a bit??

Re email icons, you can edit the names so they don't have to necessarily say Hotmail 1 etc.
If your work, Hotmail and personal accounts use different providers, I think the icons quill be different do you can distinguish between them. And also, if you want to not receive work emails out of hours, you can switch specific accounts to manual sync.
Re WhatsApp, yes you pin the app icon which then displays message count. Unfortunately none of the messaging apps (sms, whatsapp or email) allow pinning of specific conversations - you can only pin people you call/message regularly to home screen, not messages themselves.
And yes, feeds will take up more battery than if you didn't have them, but you still get a decent life out of the phone on single charge - currently about 16-24 hours.
