    I'm finding the round profile pictures kind of cheesy, both on the phone and pc.

    No one does Just like the rounded iOS toggles and the broken Start Screen experience. MS is on crack.

    I quite like them. But I don't see how they fit with Modern.

    It completely doesn't fit with modern and looks like a google product.

    What's next, picture frames? :)

    Well, they could do a Google and just change/abandon it.

    Aw yeah, nice gold-trimmed frames, and the pictures should all use that Instagram sepia-tone filters! I hope MS is reading this!

    Not just cheesy - on a smaller phone (like my Lumia 635), they crop details off already-tiny pictures - enough to reduce my chances of recognizing by picture, which reduces the value of having pictures there at all. (And no, this is NOT a vote for making the circular pictures bigger - this new People app already wastes an astonishing amount of screen real estate...)

    And two thumbs down for the non-jumping jumplist while I'm ranting.

    WP has too many rectangles, a few rounded elements make the OS look better.

    I don't have W10 yet, but based on the screenshots , I'm getting more reluctant to upgrade at all. UI is getting more & more droidy, too much space is wasted & lastly the much debated hamburgers.

    I like it personally ---- a shape doesn't make it "more Android" like, neither does a hamburger. Windows 10 is still a VERY different OS and user experience.

    I'm not a fan of it either they may remove the round pics in the next build or have an option to have either square or round in personalization settings. The hamburgers I don't mind lol

    This type of contacts app will be a great experience on Windows 10. Again here, I am only talking about the contact pictures and how it is laid out on the screen. Not the menu.

    Not really, UI tweaks are serious business. The littlest things will cause great debate and arguments in design meetings. These profile photos are getting fed in through facebook and linkedin where they are square cropped by default. Which can result in suboptimal results.

    Actually don't think they do, cause then they wouldn't have bothered changing it.

    Absolutely no reason to change to round pictures. It cuts against everything else in the OS without adding anything. No purpose in making this change.

    It's kinda OK while in the contacts app. But totaly wrong everywhere else. Like imagine when someone calls you, and all you'll see is a little circle.
    WHY? Why do it when you can have a big image on your screen that does a great job at showing who's calling you (like we have it now, on WP 8.1)?
    Don't fix what's not broken.

    Exactly, It's a "form follows function" matter. Nothing useful is gained and information is lost.

    Although, there could be some argument that it's some sort of UI cue saying round now means profile photo.
