I quickly made a better mockup using a Galaxy Note 2.

If they are going to do this, I hope it only takes affect when the physical screen size is beyond the 4.7" range, because even if the screen resolution is 1080p, the small tiles will be too small to tap comfortably.

How does this differ from when the iPhone got an extra line of icons, and was mocked mercilessly?

I'm not trolling, I am asking a genuine question. Is it because Microsoft do it as it's a "Oh hey we added" as opposed to a "LOOOOOK!!!! ICONS!!!! MOAR!!!!" or what?

because people wanted an ios phablet and got another row of icons instead.

Here, Microsoft is saying 'if you want to use higher specs, we'll just tweak the settings slightly'. Its a small but subtle difference.

Kind of seems like it but not really.
