    Lumia 620 with 3 Columns looks quite....small :)
    I remember the conversations "ahhhhh i want it on my 520/620/...." Well....MS had its reasons....it is too small for small screens

    Does the ICON (or 1520, for that matter),
    I don't see anywhere in the system settings where there is an option to change it from 3 to 2 columns, so I'd say no.

    Huh, interesting. Figured the tile option would've gone both ways, but evidently not. Thanks for checking.

    I think for the small tiles in 3 column mode, minimum screen size is 4.5". I have an 820, and I have small tiles, pretty happy with them, however I would be much more satisfied if they were slightly bigger.

    How do I choose colums? Can't see the option. 4 colums on my phone would be awesomer!

    Nope. None. My screen has black bars on the left and right, so I think I should get the option for 4 columns. Especially since 4.5-inch phones run 3 columns well enough.

    depends on screen size really.
    for me:
    > or = 5" - 3 columns
    < 5" - 2 columns

    I have a 1520, so I have had 3 columns anyway.

    Although, in my test devices, I do like it on the 1020 and 920, but I am NOT fond of it on the 520 and HTC 8X when Small Tiles are used.

    Are you using a large screen device like the 1520, Icon or Ativ SE? That's probably why no such option exists, because you already have three columns enabled by default. As for four columns: I'm open to seeing a render/concept, but that might get too cluttered and/or make the small tiles too small...

    I recently switched to 3 columns on my Lumia 520 and it's not pretty great as on a 925 but I do like it. Will decide after using the 3 column for a week.

    2 columns until more apps support transparent tiles. 3 tiles afterwards. I hate to see 2/3 of my screen transparent and the rest colored.

    Three columns looks so much better and opens up so many more ways of arranging tiles for looks and function.

    ...But on an 822 it's just too small.

    Definitely 3, being able to actually use Wide-length tiles without using up half your screen estate is a blessing and a half.

    With a 5 inch, 3 for sure. Gots to have the mnage trois.

    For smaller screens i would used them as setting shortcuts. There are apps that provide Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc to be pinned to the start. There are only 4 options for the notification menu, so this gives you a place for it.

    Just a stab in the dark - you have updated to 8.1 haven't you?

    3 columns, so I can use more medium and wide tiles.

    I tried 3 columns but it looks way to cluttered.

    2 columns look much nicer and are more aligned with Windows Phone design.

    Lumia 920.

    Am using a Lumia 525. 3 columns. I find that the small tiles work well with the small screen.
