    So I was bored and changed everything to the wp8 style, really noticed that the device is faster.

    I like the speed so far, I hope this impacts battery in some way or another.

    You mean with two columns instead of three?

    he means that, even on my 720, going from 3 to two, the phone has become fast in rendering the start screen

    Yup. Two instead of three. I really missed my phone at this speed.

    I'm feeling that too, but I think its a placebo. But I even feel apps are faster.

    I just did it, but my 920's screen looks stupid. I dont know why, but i feel like my phone is a dumb phone when i did it. I WILL NEVER GO BACK FROM 8.1!

    Agreed. Mine really isn't that bad anyways. they can have my extra tiles when they pry them from my cold, dead phone.

    Interesting. I turned on 3 columns briefly but decided the small tile were too small and since they're about 3/4ths of the tiles on my screen, I pretty quickly went back to 2.

    Keeping with the big tiles. Seriously, my entire phone (including apps) seem snappier. Even if its a placebo effect... I'll take it!

    Actually scrolling up and down is way smoother with 2 row of tiles instead of 3. Realized that on my 920 a little while back. I kept switching back and forth to be sure but i thought it was a placebo effect. But it's really butter smooth with 2 row of tiles while you can feel the tiny stutters with 3 rows. It's not laggy per say, but you can feel it.

    Thought the old layout was weird at first but the tiles look sharper that way. With 3 rows, the tiles are too small and are a little blurry. The background image looks nicer too with 2 rows. It really feels like a "window". Keeping the old layout as well, until i buy a newer wp.

    After a reset I don't get any lag while scrolling the 3 columns.

    I don't get a lag so to speak, but the tile redrawing issue was becoming ridiculous and i was tired of hard resetting

    Haven't noticed any lag on my L920 with three tiles, then again I don't have much pinned to my start screen :P. It is silky smooth like the first day I got my phone almost two years ago.

    I tried the three tile thing for all of five minutes. My eyes became really strained trying to look at all the small text on the tiles. Never again.
