    it looks like your major issue is the blank spaces; I think it makes it look clean

    I also hate the blank space. It's especially visible on my 1520 on which I even lowered scaling.
    However I'd rather have empty space, than ugly space. They should try to use it better, but if they can't, just let it be like this.
    Ehh.. I agree with all these people in general, that Win10M could look way better, and that there's so much that should be improved.
    Currently it's like - it's functional, and it's not terribly ugly, so it's ok. And it shouldn't be like that. Too bad MS rarely looks at feedback like all those concept arts, and even less often uses it.

    It looks like a bunch of two year old question marks all over a screen.

    I mean, if it is empty space, what do you want them to fill it up with, its a settings menu, nothing like Cortana or any other core apps.

    I think OP would like it if the menus were more centralized? I don't mind the blank space, in fact, I'm only noticing it now that you bring it up.

    Looks fine to me tho

    The blank space you're having an issue with is so people using their phones with their left hand don't have to reach over uncomfortably to hit something where their thumb can't reach easily. Sure, some information there would be nice, but not sure what could be there.

    Welcome to suggestions though.

    Send a feedback for creating a sort of "left handed screen setting". It should be the first phone with it

    I'm going to make an assumption. You circled Background Photo ON, in Glance Screen app, which I believe you are questioning why not have the Background Photo appear in the background of screens, especially those "ugly" with blank space.

    I too would like this, however many backgrounds I use and like as my Start screen and Lock screen are AWFUL for viewing white text whether stationary or scrolling. I'm using bright Autumn images now with light browns, oranges and yellows. White text is hard to see. I use a weather app who's text is almost impossible to see at times when the app is open and certain within app backgrounds are used depending on time of day and current weather. The photos are beautiful, but data is very hard to read sometimes. Same for the OS itself depending on a users background photo.

    I don't like that White is the only color of tile icons, with the exception of some apps that don't offer transparent tiles. It would be nice if the OS could determine a text and icon color that best contrasted the overall background image thus offering the best legibility, but for now it's white (dark mode, High Contrast mode off).

    Haha! Never understood the hate against empty spaces. True empty spaces look ugly, but only when there is too much space between grid of icons, like in iPad Pro. In lists, they are perfectly fine though. In fact, the touch screen area for an item in a list extend to empty space so you just don't have to reach to tap exactly on top of it. You could just tap in empty space in front of the list item and it will open. Other than that, why would you hate empty spaces just for the sake of it. You can't just fill every inch of every screen with items and information. It will be too much clutter. Already, there are people who find W10m start screen to be too much clutter.
    The only UI/UX problem I agree with is the inconsistency. I hope Microsoft figure out a way for a consistent and functional UI/UX design and soon.

    Nothing wrong with some white space, surely Windows Phone 10 lacks consistency like Windows Phone 8.1. But it will get there. Hopefully they pump out alot of frequently updates and continue to polish apps.

    For some odd reason I believe we should stop complaining about those empty space... Otherwise MS might start putting ads in those spaces.....

    Or, maybe they were meant to free up those spaces in the first place...

    I'm a big fan of those empty spaces. It makes the UI look clean and uncluttered, and focusses the eye on what is important. The power of white space is well understood in the paper publishing industry.

    Some of those images are from the first few preview builds when everything was uglier. It's better now.

    Also, those action center icons are supposed to be both gray and colorful. They're gray when the specific function is off and colored when the specific function is on.

    I am not keen on the hamburger menus being hard to reach on large devices. Don't think the icons are instinctively intuitive.

    Although I do like task and snap views

    I agree with the OP on the large amount of blank space. This has been one of my biggest complaints with WP's UI. I understand that we can get "brain freeze" by having too much information available at once, but yet we soon become intimately familiar with our phones once they're set up. This makes brain freeze a non issue.

    On mobile, space is at a premium. I've always felt that I do a lot more scrolling and swiping on WP than on iOS and Android, due in no small part to the large blank (read: wasted) space.

    I am not keen on the hamburger menus being hard to reach on large devices.
    The problem here is not so much the hamburger menu itself as it is WP's implementation of them. Why do you have to tap directly on the menu to open it? You should be able to swipe in from anywhere on the same side as the hamburger menu to open it. It seems to me that it should be a relatively trivial matter to take care of. It's no wonder that WP users complain about hamburger menus. I hate them on WP, but I have no problem with them on iOS and Android.
