Windows Phone fans are passionate, as such, there’s no shortage of enthusiast-made redesigns of the OS.
This latest one comes from @JobsRobson, who paid close attention some of Windows 10 Mobile’s finer design flaws.
The full project makes a pass over the action center, start screen, Windows 10 Store, and even takes a look at how a popular app – Spotify – might fit into his proposed design language refinements.
The design introduces the frosted glass effect to Windows 10 Mobile. The effect was made popular in Windows 7, and found itself reintroduced into Windows 10’s Start Menu and Action Centre for PCs following Windows Insider feedback.
Robson’s take on Windows 10 Mobile makes better use of space available on-screen. Some of these composition issues are caused by Windows 10’s universal apps, which conform to different screens based on the size available. You can test how UWAs transform to reflect different screen sizes on your PC, simply by resizing the window.
Here are some of Robson’s proposed changes, be sure to check out the full project on Behance, right here.
Microsoft will no doubt iterate and polish Windows 10 Mobile’s design and apps moving forward to bring it more in-line with something like the above. Major features like the inclusion of music controls directly into the Action Center might take a little longer to materialize. Interactive live tiles, for example, have been proposed for quite a while now, although Windows Insiders have yet to see Microsoft’s take on the idea.
What do you think of these ideas? What aspects of Windows 10 Mobile do you think Microsoft should focus on improving first? Let us know in the comments.
