    I don't know if you guys noticed but the animation of the flying tiles, i.e when we press the home button, has changed slightly..and it looks AWESOME!

    Have you seen it? What do you think?

    I really don't see why people are making such a big deal of some minor animation changes... The only differences I can see is that the new one is slightly shorter (no black screen at the beginning) and the tiles actually spin in in order from top to bottom now, whereas previously they kinda failed at that. Sure it looks better, but seriously, what's the big deal?

    The big deal is that us makes the UI look better and a better looking UI will increase sales. Pretty major then

    I'm quite sure the average user would barely notice the difference.

    The animations on wp8 are a little bit over the top. Toning them down just a tiny bit will make the whole thing feel more polished than it already is.
    So yeah, from what I've seen, it looks really good.

    The animations in WP8.1 feels a lot faster.

    Now that I know what video the OP is referring to, you can tell it's faster than the current UI, even though I'm on a faster chipset. Hopefully that means 8.1 is even more optimized. April 2nd needs to get here already!

    Not everything has to be a "big deal" for people to like it.

    The little details count too.

    I'm not saying it's not nice to see such minor improvements, just that some people are seeing it as something revolutionary when it really isn't... Again, it's nice, but overrated in a way.

    Who said it was revolutionary? What I see is that the OP noticed a change, posted it and said it looked awesome. Then you immediately replied with some crazy spiel saying that people ae making a big deal out of it and shouldn't be, which made no sense.

    Are the animations really faster, I compared the video with my 920, and it's basically the same...

    HTC HD7 Review Part 1 - YouTube

    4:45-4:46!!

    6:50-6:52

    I didn't say OP said it was revolutionary. I said some people, which doesn't imply OP is one of them... So it seems like you're the one not making any sense here, coming here only to comment on my post, which you've also failed to read and understand properly. I've seen people elsewhere on the internet go crazy over this, which is why I posted, it was an observation. I'm not going to explain the whole thing about why I don't find this as interesting and amazing as you do all over again, because this discussion is slowly turning into a circle jerk.

    @xenophos: yeah, it looks like they've brought back the old animation from WP7, not sure why they changed it in 8 when the old one was better...

    How did you jump to the conclusion that I consider the change "interesting and amazing"? I'm only interested in animations speeding up.

    @DaviUnic...yes, even i dont know why they changed it..But honestly, I love the WP7 animations and that was the first thing I marked when WP8 launched. Anyways..alls well that ends well.

    For me, that "back to start screen" animation looks buggy. What are those things at right side behind the tiles? It looks strange for me. Looks like some flickering thing...
