    As it stands, I think squares are by far the better option for the live tile...
    If you pin people to the start screen then add them to a folder it mimics that old people tile. You can do this just for you inner circle contacts. Hopefully they won't mess up the pinned contacts.

    I have to say after I've finally seen it functioning fully on my Icon I like it way better than the 8.1 square design. It's a refreshing contrast to everything being so sharp and square-like.

    Well to be honest I'm really happy it doesn't work on my primary phone, as graphic designer I will only say it is one of the ugliest thing that I have ever seen :D :D

    To be clear, I have nothing against circles in people app but this animation is terrible if you ask me and what also annoys me is new group view with small circles, the old way with a big square 'active' contact thumbnails where both, better looking and more informative..

    We have had circles even in 8.1 if you havent noticed. Controls in each app are circled and nobody gives a ****. They put your contact photos into circles and everyone is losing their minds. Put your **** together people. Its just circles in OS of your phone. The same thing with settings toggles. Theyre rounded. So what? Bread wont be cheaper nor more expensive. Of you dont like it leave the platform.
    There are more important things than round stuff. App gap. OS features, loading and resuming screens...

    As I said in post above I have nothing against circles in people app, we all may need some time to acclimate to some new UI tweaks that Microsoft brought with the WM10 here and there, but again, I just can't resists to repeat this animation is simply terrible if you ask and I would rather choose no animation than look at this ugly polka on my start screen.

    From other hand, what annoys me the most when it comes to circles, new group view with small circles, the old way with a big square 'active' contact thumbnails where both, better looking and more informative and even easier to navigate, but again, its just my opinion...

    Of you dont like it leave the platform.
    And after all complains aren't here because someone want to leave platform or come back or stay or anything else but because of the valuable feedback, feedback is important no matter is it about UI design or about new features or app gap, feedback is feedback....what is important to you doesn't means is important to everyone and vice versa...

    Personally, I very much prefer squares over the circles, but I can understand that MS wants to unify it across the ecosystem (win10, Skype, Xbox, etc..).
