I'm really finding that I'm not using any of the Launcher widgets on my home screen other than the time and weather. If I had a choice to go back to Windows 10 mobile I would, but with support almost gone there is no real point.
So I'm he to once again advocate for the fantastic UI that we all love and miss and say please bring the all mighty experience of Windows 10 Live Tiles to Android

I'm not really sure why you feel the need to argue against me on this. Someone telling me that I have to use the android launchers now, instead of live tiles is like telling a kids with no hands, now that his adaptive xbox controller is old and broken he'll just have to use a normal xbox controller now because Microsoft don't make the adaptive ones anymore.
I've defended Microsoft on a lot of bad decisions lately however I realised that just makes me look ignorant. Not everyone is the same and fixing UI/UX in a way that is not customisable to suit the users needs is not empowering or inclusive at all.

There's also millions of designers around the world that will tell you the award winning live tile design found in Windows Phone is innovative, great for information consumption and simply a better design for touch centric devices. It completely smashes the current Android and IOS style of rowed icons, and don't get me started on the inconsistent design language found in Android widgets. Android is disgusting, any of the design aesthetic and functionality we can leverage from Windows Phone would be a win.
Even if many apps pinned to a launcher start screen are not live, it's still infinitely more user friendly, more aesthetically appealing and goes some way of reinstating some of the exceptionally sophisticated UI design language found in Windows Phone. Microsoft could create live tile feeds that function in launcher and this would at least give us access to the most essential app information. Regardless of how you feel about the tiles interface it was the future whether the world was ready to accept it then or not.
I am tied of using Square Home with hundreds of hours spent tweaking my phone and searching out apps with compatible transparent widgets I can use to replicate a functional tiled interface.

I'm going to keep this thread alive, mainly because Apple have now released a Live Tile experience in iOS 14.
There is no excuse for Microsoft to not reconsider making Launcher look more like the Win 10 Live tile experience
I'm now torn between buying a Surface Duo and an iPhone :thinking_face:
