    Ever since the recent Cortana update, at random times when scrolling on any screen related to Cortana (search results, interests, news article pages, etc.) on my 1520, the content gets cut off. Here's a screenshot of it happening on my Microsoft news article page:

    I used to work in the Bravern buildings when I was a Softie. I might just take you up on that.

    Same here. I'm in Canada. Since Talderon said that it was being rollout slowly, I'm wondering if we are talking couple more days or weeks for everyone to have the update?

    Dadgummit. I'm not resetting my phone just to get a bar between cards in my search results. (Atlanta northeast).

    I ended up doing that very thing - she even let me take the quiz. However I don't see the feedback button that others have seen.

    Talderon this may sound silly but is there any work planned for the aesthetics of Cortana's results/information? Google Now is very pleasing to the eye, Cortana isn't. Maybe we should be able to set a white theme just for Cortana like in the email settings.

    Expansion on your idea: have the Cortana theme follow the dark/light theme setting perhaps? Since we don't get a choice on dark/light when viewing an email. Well, my 620 doesn't at least.

    We do get a choice for email, from your inbox press the 3 dots and go to settings. I'd like the exact same choice for Cortana.

    Had no idea you could do that. It would be awesome to have the same setting for Cortana, and it'd be nice if the aesthetics were cleaned up, perhaps even using a "cards" style layout like Google Now. It's very pleasing to look at.

    I can't really say much about the UI as that is pretty far from where I am at. If I hear something that I can share, I will. :)

    Maybe you're one of these "hate Goggle no matter what" people but UI wise it's not even up for discussion that Google Now is better than Cortana. You can be a hater and still keep an objective eye.

    Don't assume so much. I like a few things that Google has created or bought but Google Now isn't one of them. It doesn't even have a personality.

    We were talking about UI, personality has nothing to do with it.

    Really bright cards with cartoonish icons and colors don't really appeal to me and have no place in WP.

    Doesn't have to be just like that but certainly the Cortana UI leaves a lot of room for improvement.

    I agree. Windows phone UI is way far behind windows 8. Windows 8 is way more playful while windows phone is dead simple. I wish windows team would port all essential core apps from windows 8 such as email and people to windows phone so we can get better designs

    The original Bing search UI is much nicer than Cortana imo. WP has typical been very one handed user friendly with a large percentage of interactive elements being on the bottom half the screen. Cortana on the other hand is this bland white screen with an animating circle in the middle that's also missing functionality (sliding from left or right to see news, movies, local deals etc). The top right icon in Cortana is also fairly unfamiliar with the metro UI when we typically expect to see ...
