    I hope you guys should use extra column. After just two days you find that it looks better then less column. I love more tiles.

    I enjoy the third column since it lets me use large tiles more liberally.

    920 - 4.5" display, doubt I'd use it on anything smaller.

    Yes, some Lumia 520 users are also enjoying with 4" inch display.

    I just love the extra column on my 520. I also noticed some users say the icons will be too small ?? Well it is not. It looks wonderful and it is still quiet easy to use as well.

    On the 52x series I think three columns starts to make smaller tiles look blurry and pixelated.

    You are right, but we can expect HD tiles in future update.

    Using more tiles on my 925. Most of my tiles are small but they're all neatly arranged with larger tiles around them.

    That's a great idea. Because I don't like to swipe down and up every time to access other apps.

    Would prefer 3 tiny tiles at the bottom, contacts, phone dialer & Viber. Currently have a j so that I can have what I need at the bottom!

    520 with extra column. 33 tiles on the same screen, zero scrolling.

    Using a 520 now. With the Extra column. I cant say that the small tiles are looking bad and they are not so blurry at all. They just need like a 10% graphics enhancement and they will be fine. But seriously its not blurry on my phone. And when the tile is small its not "live" so no worry's about reading tile text and stuff. Notifications numbers on the small tiles are quiet readable as well.

    I'm using more tiles on my 620, the smallest Windows Phone (3.8") :)
    And I can't go back, I love it this way.

    This is my configuration

    wp_ss_20140823_0002.jpg

    Logics is:
    Weather, phone functions come first and icons are middle size. LED light stays in the middle (can reach with one finger if i need)
    Mail contacts are all in a folder. New folders show notifications so you don't miss much (Pity doesn't have a LED with different colors so you know what has priority, what can wait)
    News apps are in another folder.
    What follows after is messaging apps and then media/games/music (entertainment in general) and utilities, readers, and a section for webpages i need quick (like a portal for my priority customer who sends translating projects there which i need to accept/refuse ASAP so need to login quick).
    Since i have now grouped a lot of apps inside folders i save a lot of real estate.

    On my 920, I switched to 3 columns, more tiles, but the tiles seemed so tiny. So after a few days, I switched back to 2 columns, but the tiles seemed HUGE. LOL. It takes a few days to get acclimated and to adjust to tiles being in new locations.

    I now use 3 columns and love not having to swipe to access my frequently used apps. I even have space for a few live folders that hold less frequently used apps. How could we ever go back to static icons???

    I'm good with just two columns and using all medium sized tiles. The big ones take up too much room and the small ones are harder for me to click. It's probably something one could mess with forever but I'll stick with two columns of medium sized tiles for now. :)

    Even though I've a 4" device, I just can't wait for the 3 column support with cyan. And backgrounds. And folders with update 1. For some people it is clutter, but for lazy people like me, it is a blessing. I can has everything on one screen without having to scroll up and down.
