    I thought it was just a Windows Phone Mango thing that after adding a lot of tiles to the start screen, scrolling fast causes the icons on the tiles to disappear and the color of your theme is shown instead until they re-draw. After using my Samsung Focus for a sec (running against my HTC Arrive), and finding that the Focus DOES NOT do this (you have to try VERY HARD for it to happen), I've come to the conclusion that it's either an "HTC thing" or a "smaller screen" thing (or even Super AMOLED vs LCD). Either way, it's very annoying and I wish Microsoft would fix it.

    I also noticed other weird differences, like slower rotation response on the Focus vs the Arrive. The Arrive is much faster at screen rotation, but the Focus doesn't have the Tile redraw thing.

    My Omnia does this, but only if i scroll incredibly fast in which case i could not see what tile was what anyway.

    If i scroll at normal speed to fast it doesn't redraw.

    It doesn't bother me at all as i never scroll that fast on the home screen.

    It's worst Mango that it was Mango beta on my Focus. I use to have to do a super fast swipe to see it. But now, I can do a regular swipe and I can see it. MY Focus most definitely does this. It just doesn't bother me that much though.

    How many icons are on your homescreen? I have like 20...only three (including people hub) of which are live tiles.

    It just drives me crazy, as it appears to be random because some people see (like mentioned with the Focus) and others don't see it. Scrolling at normal speeds produces it for me, whereas on the Focus I'd have to scroll at the speed of light to see it and it drives me crazy personally....

    Occasionally I will scroll pretty slowly and it takes about a second or 2 for the tiles to redraw. Agree with jax, it seems to be worse now than in the Mango beta. I saw it a few times on the beta but it happens more often now. Still, this doesn't really bother me.

    Occasionally my tiles will be jerky and not scroll smoothly, that is much more annoying to me. But it's also pretty rare.

    For the people that it doesn't happen to....how many tiles are on your screen and how many of them are live tiles? Also, did you done a hard reset or anything, and did you 'force" the update on there? I've tried installing Mango multiple times, and it happens every time.

    It is definitely worse with the final Mango build than beta.

    lol my bad.....guess it's just my OCD.

    Use to not be a problem so much in Nodo, slightly in Mango Beta, and HORRIBLE in Mango Official. Doesn't effect my co-worker's HD7 because for some reason, the scrolling is slower on his so it NEVER has a change to happen on his. On my Focus, have to scroll at the speed of light to catch it.

    Again, I only have like 20 tiles piled, most of which are apps with only 3 lives (People Hub included).











    On the upside......at least my Twitter contact Live Tiles are updating faster now lol....guess we can't have a perfect world...

    so you're saying you can scroll to from normal...to fast..and there is NO re-draw? Wonder if it's device specific.....?

    Just retried it. If I scroll at maximum turbo I'm having a seizure on the screen speed the last 4 tiles do it for like a split second. If I scroll and more likely speeds its fine. even at faster scroll.


    This kinda reminds me of icon redraw on a pc low on ram or a slower cpu etc

    Well it hasn't happened on any other device I've used (HD7 and Samsung Focus) but it happens to me even with just like 20 tiles. And it doesn't happen to the Arrive unit here at Sprint so I wish it could get pinned down to what it is.

    My trophy doesn't do it. Pre-mango it did it some, but now I can go to the bottom of my start screen, go to the apps list and go to the bottom and hit the home button and it zooms to the top of the start screen with no redraws.

    I've placed a bid for a new Arrive on eBay. Maybe it's just my particular phone (has been dropped a few times and a piece is missing from the side) and it's looking like Sprint would make me order one through Assurion anyway....

    I have 26 tiles and I'm not noticing anything. I can sometimes get it to redraw by doing that fast flick up and then press the Windows/home button, but even then it's only a blink.

    I have the HTC trophy and I've noticed this. Sometimes when I'm scrolling through apps, its just pictures of grey squares next to the app titles for a second before the app pictures appear.

    I've seen this as well, which is what made me move to putting my apps on the start screen (and its just cool having large tile icons instead of little apps like iOS and Android...its what sets Windows Phone OS apart IMO)
