    Wanted to ask people using the 1520, don't you think that three column support makes the home screen a little too clattered? I have the 920 so obviously I am used to two columns only and it could be just a question of getting used to it, but when I see screenshots of the 1520 they always look a little too clattered and busy.

    I would love to hear the views of people using the 1520 on a daily basis.
    Functionally the 3 column layout is great but, yes, it's also cluttered. Just my opinion, but esthetically the 2 column layout is much cleaner looking.

    I disagree. Having played with my moms 925 the last few days, the 2 column look is sk foreign and strange. The three columns look does the os far more justice as it allows the software to shine better with all the extra tiles.

    I like the 3 rows, I get more info on a single view.
    I agree that you can get more info on a single view and that is a plus, but I also feel that the downside is that the screen seems too clattered. Having said that, I haven't used the phone on a daily basis, and that is why I wanted to get feedback from people who do.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Haven't decided yet between UC Browser and IE.

    Not a fan of the pink or smiley face on Nokia Mix Radio, but none of the 3rd party music apps seems to be able to update their Live Tile each time the song changes so this is the best music player live tile for now.

    I changed mine up a little bit. Still struggling a bit with some balance. I love 3 columns for it's information density, but 2 columns just seems more elegant to me.

    Very nice live tiles you have there. Can you share the apps you have?

    Thanks! A lot of the tiles are custom made with Skinery Themes. Those would be: Nokia Music, Bing Sports, Magnify, and Wikipedia. The rest are stock. The bottom three orange tiles are all from Bing Health, which I highly recommend. The Vine and Instagram are both from Rudy. The calendar is Cal, and the Weather app is a beta app from the same guy who made Pouch, and should be coming out soon. The battery and black row are from Insider Pro, and the headphone tile is associated with the Nokia Purity Pro headset. I think that's everything!
