Concept Art: Windows Phone Metro UI ReimaginedApril 14, 2012 2 Comments
I bumped into this concept art and I am very interested to hear what you guys think.
Windows Phones famed Metro UI has been recently imagined by Yanko Andreev. The design takes a page from Windows 8 and makes the tiles act more like widgets with controls right on the tiles.
I like some of the aspects of this design but I think it might be too much to remain ‘Metro’ and might make things a bit too messy. I really like the simplicity of Metro on Windows Phone and I lean more to this recent art of a concept phone called the Lumia 920. The Metro UI on that takes from Windows 8 but still keeps it very clean by just adding groups.
I do like having more control though over the all around look and feel.
But I feel that all these extra controls like for instance on the navigation, really take away from what Metro is supposed to be.
What do you guys think? Would you like this type of design on your Windows 8 phone?
