Get Launcher 10. It's the closest to a Windows phone experience. A few minor bugs, but if you pay for the Live Tiles and to remove ads, you won't be sorry.
I'm using Launcher 10 because I vastly prefer the Windows Phone design to the usual Android one. It has support for the Duo.
So, I got a couple of good news for you.
Launcher 10 is a great substitute for the W10M home screen. Does the same job, looks identical, however has even more customisation options (tiles can go from 1x1 to 6x6 including non-standard sizes like 2x1 or 1x3) and the notifications on the live tiles actually work better (they just display a notification, so if you swipe it away, they refresh immediately, unlike on W10M where you sometimes had to wait a random amount of time).
And here are all the sounds from WP7 and W10M.
Just a little something to make switching to Android less painful.
You should try Launcher 10, it's pretty much perfect. With in-app purchase even has live tiles for some tiles.
While I don't use it as my launcher, this my start screen I had setup some time ago. All tiles are fully customisable and use of adaptive icons (see Pokemon Go and Instagram).
Launcher 10 and nothing compares. I was an early adopter of Windows Phone 7 and stuck with it all the way up to 10 until I had to switch to an iPhone for a work related app. I've been on Android since the OnePlus 6t launched and hated the interface, but this launcher made me keep the phone. I made a small video demonstrating some of the familiar functionality.
If you want the closest thing to Windows phone that you can get, that's the way to go. Hope you enjoy!
Launcher 10 is a really good one. It even has live tile functionality, though you have to pay for that part.
If you use Google opinion rewards, then that'll alleviate the cost.
Try "Launcher 10". Close to the real thing. Very customizable. I'd suggest to invest a couple of bucks and buy ad-free as well as live tiles. I did and I absolutely love it.
I am currently using the paid version of Launcher10. This is about as close as you will get to WP on Android. The trial gives you access to LiveTiles (notifications are displayed on the tiles, as well as the Notification menu).
I've tried to use MS Launcher but my 7-year phone muscle memory is completely based on LiveTiles, so I get really frustrated with default Android menu.

If MS forces me to leave the platform, as a very disappointed and frustrated fan, I would most likely turn my back on MS apps also. Not going on Android to use their servises there.
I'm on week 2 without mine. Keeping the 950XL for WoA.
I'm so nostalgic that I made my S9 look and act like Windows Phone. I set it up to be an exact replica of my WP screen.
You can have tiles, drag them around, have the apps on the panel to the left. If you pay his fee, you can even have live tiles. A couple of small formatting bugs here and there, but it even has more features that Windows Phone Live Tiles.
If you think the UI is unbearable, you can use launchers to recreate the windows experience. I use Launcher 10 and it pretty okay. [link]
Using Launcher 10
This is the closest Windows 10 Mobile experience I could get on my S8 (that I actually prefer over any other Android launchers), and it works great (with also real Live Tiles and smooth animations). Worth the 4$ Pro purchase.
You may want to check out this wonderful app called ^Launcher 10. I had an email exchange with the Squarehome fellow and his goal is not to reproduce the feel of Windows 10 Mobile, but just create a super customizable launcher where that could be possible whereas the Launcher 10 dev that is his goal and he just added live tiles! Super pleasant developer with a great Windows style launcher.
No need to jail break it if you don't want to, but with OnePlus they actually support you if you mess up the device trying to do that. Just be wary that they have some slow tech support sometimes. I have TWRP as my custom recovery because I find it much better to use, I just have to flash official OTA updates from their site so it doesn't get removed.
There isn't perfect parity as far as I can tell with Microsoft Mobile devices for the accounts, but you get One Note, Word etc and can sign in to each. That added to having the OutLook app is very handy. I also know that Android Messages can be used in browser if you're on PC and don't want to rely on just Cortana syncing your texts.
As for the launcher you can change to, I believe Launcher 10 for being like WM. Though you have to pay for ad removal and live tiles.
Personally I went with the regular OnePlus standard android experience and it works for me, but you may want to try something else. Either way I hope you have luck with whatever new phone you decide on.
Have been using this for a while and works pretty good. It has live tiles in the paid version but I do not know if those are any good.
I bought an older Android to use as a demo for my videos and how to integrate with Windows 10. I found that there are a couple of apps that attempt to imitate tiles. Here's one.
I'm with you, miss my 950xl. I'm on Android for work support, but there are very few apps keeping me here otherwise. The only one I REALLY need is for my alarm system.
I tried the MS launcher. What a letdown. I use Launcher 10, to get the true win phone home screen, and another little app to get daily Bing picture.
I second this, I've used Launcher 8 and Launcher 10, which are closer to Windows Mobile than Win 10 Launcher, but they still pale in comparison to the real thing. At least it does a good job replicating the app drawer
Windows phone was still a better device.
Best Homescreen ever, single view, all your apps and they don't have to open for you to see updates (there was this Android clone I used [link] that swapped notifications into the app tiles, but it doesn't work well on the Surface Duo)
The app list picker has never been beaten. The modern "scroll til you find it" rather than the option to pick your scroll position alphabetically has now only lead to an increase in time finding my app (just use search means I have to wait for a keyboard to pop up, ui wise, the windows phone was the most optimal for single screen touch interfaces)
I use launcher 10
Its got a straight forward UI that's far better the WP10 was for resizing, changing the colours and graphics for each app.
It's also been super stable and straight forward to use and install on my Samsung.
Yes it supports widgets. You could also checkout Launcher 10, though it doesn't seem to be as popular. The other launcher I was thinking of is SF Launcher 2, but it hasn't been updated since 2017. I liked the design of SF Launcher 2 as it was inspired by the Google Feed and rumors of how Fuschia's home screen is designed. Unfortunately the design was never fully fleshed out before the developer stopped updating it.
iPhone 11 Pro for personal, Samsung Galaxy S10e for work.
The iPhone is pretty soulless though it has a stellar camera system, and I preferred the S10e’s form factor to the standard S10.
If you miss your Lumia and you run a Note 9, try out Launcher 10. I use it as my work device’s launcher and it is the most faithful recreation of W10M I’ve found. I also found all the old W10M / Nokia sound effects and configured the phone to use those.

I know it can come across as a bit busy, but I love the clean lines of the tiles and the "organized chaos" designs it allows for. The standard layout of a solid tile color and black background makes for a simpler experience.
I also love that the launcher brings back some of the live tile functionality from Windows Phone/Mobile. The calendar, photos, contacts and clock can all be live and even some 3rd party apps show live info (like Spotify in the screenshot and Messenger shows a preview of the last unread message).
Launcher 10 :)
For the clock, I use a widget called Digital Clock Widget Xperia
Android, mert az első, amit feltettem az új mobilomra, az a Win10 Launcher volt. Meg van rá Vivaldi böngésző.
Egyébként mobilon is ugyanaz él, ami PC-n: ha nem töltesz le mindenféle kétes szart, akkor nem kell aggódnod, hogy vírusos/malware-es/szifiliszes lesz az eszközöd.
There are various Live Tile launchers, but for me the one that best simulates the Windows 10 Mobile home screen is Launcher 10. The paid-for version feels very much like an "evolved" version of W10M, with many options I wish W10M had implemented (transparency/blur can be applied to all icons, resizable to any size whatsoever, ability to show notifications even on 1 x 1 tiles, tinting, any app that receives notifications can be "live"...).
If you want to recreate your windows phone experience on Android, I recommend downloading this launcher.
has anyone tried Launcher 10?
I loved tile based launchers for the windows phone (it has the best glance UI of any phone) and I think Launcher 10 did a cool job with Live Tiles taking notifications.
The main problem i found is 1.) you have to pay for it (no sane person should have ads on their launcher) and 2.) it does seem a but slow when i put a 6x10 grid on my home screen and enable the live tile
Topic: I'm assuming the question is related to smartphone apps. In terms of the app that gets the absolute most use on my phone, it's the custom launcher I've put my Android - Launcher 10.
In terms of actual utility applications that don't come with the phone, I'd say WhatsApp, followed by Outlook Mobile.
Try Launcher 10. It makes your Android look like a Windows phone and it shows people and the like. It pulls it all in from the Android Permissions system.
Note: You have to pay a one-time payment to get Live Tiles activated.
Try out launcher 10 if you're missing tiles! It's highly customizable and even has live tiles. I used it for over half a year I think before I switched phones.
OnePlus 6/6T or 7 Pro all the way, OP. Their Android version (dark theme, advanced display options, good customization, clean OS) is delightful and makes a smooth transition off of Windows Phone compared to other brands, their newer cameras are nice though they don't approach Lumia quality without installing GCam, and the hardware is not crazy expensive.
For launcher/UI check this out: Launcher 10
I've used it off and on and this pretty much nails the Windows Phone 8.1/Windows 10 Mobile homescreen and app list functionality, with the ability to set widgets as live tile content and natively support the Windows People/Calendar/etc live tiles. Pair that with Cortana/Bing on Android and you're approaching the Windows experience.
Microsoft should have done it with their launcher right from the beginning. Because they didn't, Live Tiles will become an afterthought.
Launcher 10 did a good job.
If you want to keep that Windows UI-feel don't miss out on Launcher 10.
I dreaded the move from Windows 10 Mobile but this launcher made the transition easy.
You should give Launcher 10 a try, it has the 8.1 and 10 theme, as well as live tiles :) fast and smooth too, especially as a beta tester.
Here's an example
I've been using this launcher [link] ... It has flat icons for most apps :-) ... With [link] it looks better than my L640 :) ... but I haven't found decent SMS/Messaging app :)
This is really good.
On an Android? Just switched from Windows Phone to Android a month ago.
Here's my 'Start Menu' on my S9. With Cortana installed.
For the launcher, there's
For others, all Microsoft apps are on Android (Office, OneNote, OneDrive, Outlook, YourPhone, Sticky Notes, etc.)
edit: Almost forgot about Edge
Here's the beauty of Android though
Probably not the same full experience but better than nothing.
Here's something that might make you reconsider at some point.
It's not perfect, but damn close to it. And the live tiles actually tend to work better than on W10M (they just mirror notifications so there's literally zero lag and the moment you remove a notification, the live tile clears as well).
There's still the rest of the ugly apps, but then again iOS apps don't look much better.
I'd also recommend grabbing BlackBerry Manager and installing BlackBerry Hub from it (not the Play link - that version is gimped on non-BB phones). BB Hub is otherwise known as the "best damn thing that happened to communication software on phones" and it nicely mirrors what the old Message Hub did - you get emails, text messages, WhatsApp, Instagram, Reddit and other notifications all in one spot. Emails are fully integrated (so you can never leave the app to write an email) others will bring you to the appropriate app, but it's still just too good not to use, IMO.
Launcher 10 is much better.
I basically can't tell that I'm using Android at this point.
IMHO the best option is Android phone with this launcher. Been using it for more than 3 years now and couldn't be happier
I hate having to swipe between pages of apps so I use Launcher 10
I very much prefer Launcher10. Seems much cleaner than SquaredHome2.
Nokia 3, 5 or 6 (2018s) would be great. Try Launcher 10.
The best Windows mobile launcher is Launcher10, easy to use and even has live tiles

You guys might like Launcher 10, a Windows Phone-styled Android Launcher...
Hi, I have finally been forced to move to android, cause of lack of too many apps. Android is for me an awful experience (ios even worse).
But I found this android (wp) launcher: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nfwebdev.launcher10
and its just so good. I have now been able to make my android to look and behave so much like a window phone (even live tiles work perfect, and I can pin contacts). For any wp lover this is a must. So if you miss windows phone this is the launcher to go for.
Sadly it hasn't solved the problem of moving my whatsapp history from my lumia 950, still looking for a way to solve that cause https://www.winwazzapmigrator.com only works for older lumias :(
