    The new background option is well, OPTIONAL. An option that I personally prefer when done tastefully (which is subjective).You still have the option to use the 8.0/8.1 style UI in Windows 10 for phones. Shadows under tiles? No thanks. There's nothing flat or modern about that.

    @ OP, as for the music hub,which is straight from iOS 7+. Something to consider, how would this work with phones with on-screen Back / Home / Search buttons that are set to auto-hide & unhide with a swipe up?
    lol, you just speak out my mind. strange thing :))

    For On Screen Keys there could be another gesture to bring up the Hub(s).

    If you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all.

    By all means let me know what you think, i'm open to criticism. I personally would love to see my design implemented (obviously) but of course everyone can agree to disagree :)

    I have a feeling that this(most of the designs) will look better than what Microsoft will come up with

    To the OP, maybe use the quote button? :P

    As it is hard to tell you who you are replying to lol and as for the concept... decent effort but not really a fan.
    There are quite a lot of things which have gone wrong :

    1) The search box is far too high up, it should be nearer to the bottom (not exactly at the bottom, perhaps 10 to 15 pixels before the drawer?)
    2) It is not evident if speech to text has been omitted or not.

    3) All Settings has been replaced by the expand / collapse option in Windows X for Phones.

    4) The swipe-up-hubs are far too cramped it wouldn't work in practise on a small device like the 620. It would only work best on a large screen, not a healthy compromise.

    5) The biggest flaw of all is the swipe up hubs as with on screen buttons, this does not work at all. Replacing it with side swipe gestures left or right breaks functionality i.e try using that in an app like metro tube, tapatalk it would be fustrating to use as you would inevitable swipe away from current screen when trying to bring up the onscreen buttons or the app bar (try swiping right in an app where it is not persistent, you will get the app bar popping up and down)

    It does look nice at first glance. But after looking longer, it does not have a consistent design behind it since your pulling from different languages. In addition I think it loses its flexibility as well as would look nearly as good if you start changing the background image. In addition any concept going forward needs to be reflected on phone, tablet, and monitor screen versions as this is what will need to happen.

    I like the slight shadow of the tiles, it keeps the originality of windows phone tiles and not too much like my wife's android SG5. I mean there's probably a million different ways you can go with this but being able to find the right one that suits at least some of the people and if they don't like it, have custom options to make it more suitable for them.
