    I would be satisfied with Android if only Microsoft and Google could play nice and make Cortana work like it does on the Windows Phone. Here's a screenshot of my use of Squarehome2 on my Sony.

    Here is the start screen on my new Galaxy Note 4. So far, I am really enjoying my new phone.

    I'm liking my Galaxy S8, the display is outrageously beautiful and the phone functions very well.

    I believe it! The Note 4 isn't a new phone by any stretch of the imagination, but the screen on it is gorgeous! Plus it has 3 GB of ram and a Snapdragon 805, so it has been running very well so far. I have no complaints yet.

    Hello all, could anyone tell me what's the best launcher for LIVE tiles that are really live, like the news app showing headlines photos, the weather app showing current temperatures over a rain pic, etc? Thanks

    That's not really a function of the launcher. You have to get a version of each app with a widget that does what you want. Sadly, most of them are pretty lame compared to live tiles.

    I wouldn't get hung up on the lack of live tiles. I thought I would miss it but after a year I really don't miss it at all.

    I think trying to emulate WM on an Android phone will become tiresome.
    Tried it myself and it just wasn't a pure experience so I quit trying and went back to Nova with the customization's I liked.

    On my Android phone I keep things simple with 2 small widgets and no multiple screens with minimal icons on-screen.
    The tile launchers available for Android just make things more difficult in my opinion.

    Android is Android...WP/WM is something else and totally different.

    One question - where did you find the Lumia sounds? I'm looking for those and cannot find them anywhere...

    Head to sound cloud and search for Microsoft middle east, there you'll find most Nokia/Lumia tunes

    What weather app are you using to have live tile support?
    I'm using a widget provided by Weather Underground and have the background set to 'transparent'.

    Honestly I do not recall; I think I just ended up typing the right phrase in Bing and found a collection of Lumia sound files that all work great.
