    Yes this is normal you can move tiles on every where the size will be smaller.....You can make 6 Small tiles or 3 Medium Tiles or 1 large+1 Medium tile...This is due to 4.3" screen

    To fit more tiles horizontally, Nokia have two options. 1) Make the screen bigger & 2) Make the tiles smaller. So, they make phones with bigger screens and more tiles. Rather nicely, they let those with smaller screen also have the option for more tiles but to do so they have to make them smaller, since making the screen bigger is a bit beyond a software upgrade.

    You will find you can now put more tiles in all that blank space left now your current tiles have been shrunk.

    Your search button aka Bing button.
    You need to change the speech settings to US as well, which may require a restart. Do that and open Cortana from the app list and she should appear when pressing the search button from then on. There is a thread somewhere which explains in full how to do it, but basically you need to change the region, speech language and keyboard to US, but format (for dates and such, can be anything - I have mine set to the UK and Cortana works fine).
    fatclue_98 and vorajee like this.

    Good point. Since I'm in the US, I was not aware of the extra steps necessary.

    I had only changed region to US and phone language to English US.
    I hadn't touched anything else and I didn't even have speech enabled when I rebooted the phone and ...bam! Cortana was right there!
    I'm in Hellas by the way. (You know.. Hellenic Republic. Might have heard it as Greece :P)
