Remove the hamburger menu in Windows Phone
The WP UI revamp is not done! We would like to see beautiful Modern/Metro style user interfaces on our Windows Phones and not stupid Android copies.
Remove the hamburger menu and do not bring it back. It is in the farthest corner of the phone from my finger and I can not reach it. Furthermore, the flyout is ugly and lags on my 930...
Do not forget the search button, the pivot view and all the missing parts.
And do not introduce more bad UI practices and concepts like these ones in the future. Stick to the pertfectly designed Metro principles, what we love!
Thanks for the feedback. At this time, this is the UI pattern we’re adopting for account management. You’ll notice that a number of other Microsoft apps are shifting to using the hamburger and our work here is consistent with that approach.
only include the hamburger menu if you keep the pivoting too. You had a great phone in 8.1 you really do, you only needed to fix some options and add some features as you had pretty much gotten the phone up to the competition standard. Whats hard to understand is why you don't get that. The phone didn't fail because of the os on it, it failed because well you have historicly the worst marketing I have ever seen, you made it hard for people to see your devices, you don't give retail shops enough reson to sell your phone above iphones or androids and well the single bigges issues are desktop 8 without start. To the average person youd say widows phone 8 anyone and theys say no way cause it sucks, and that's because they were told by friends that windows 8 sucks(but it was desktop). Also always online xbox one also hurt the phone.
Soi grow a pair and realize your mistakes and stop repeating them, pivoting needs to stay if your app needs to use the hamburger menu then fine just incorporate the pivit too.
Unfortunatly I know what I want doesn't mater as youll probably win over fans with hamburger menu, huge shame they didn't try 8.1 a missed opertunity.

That is why you'll fail.
Hamburger buttons on phones suck!
Microsoft please dont scrap windows phone panoramic UI view or modern interface whatever you say, we dont want andriod thats why we use windows phone for its refreshed and out of the box ideas to present UI with metro style view, we want back our panoramic view UI, thats bold black and beautiful
How about enabling users to use hotkey to open the hamburger menu? For instance, double click the win-key or holding the win-key
Wow, just WOW... You had the best ui going and now it's a train wreck. You cannot seriously defend this rubbish. Yet you seem to be... So dad that Microsoft is destined to fail yet again at capturing the mobile space.
"this is the UI pattern we’re adopting"
I hope you guys at Microsoft knows that Android is now starting to shift away from hamburger menus. They are in fact using the three dots menu that windows phone used very well. And here you are, telling us that this very bad UI practice is the direction you're headed to.

I am a HUGE Windows Phone supporter but was VERY disappointed with Windows 10 Preview.
So much Android copy. Top menu bar. Hamburger menu. Rounded switch buttons. The end of modern design. and so on.
I never saw myself saying this, but if things do not change, I will become one more iPhone user.
I've been waiting since WP7 in hope for a better OS.
Windows Phone 8.1 is amazing, it just need's better system apps (Mail, Calendar, etc...)
But it just need improvements not redesigns and restarts from zero.
WP7 was a restart; WP8 was another one (old hardware dumped); WP10 another restart.
Can we expect WP11 to be another one?
You can say declined all you want. It's an ugly and disgusting UI that both Apple and Android have recommended against their developers adopting. So, why are you adopting it when people are being asked not to do it? Why?
Shit hamburger go to the hell
"DECLINED"? That's so terribly sad to hear. It turns Windows Phone into just another phone with just another outdated clumsy interface, throwing us back three years into the past. IMHO, tis is consistency paired with stupidity. My preference for Windows as a phone platform is now gone.
We love appbar, burger is junk :(

I hope they will listen to us.
Microsoft if you want to copy others, please copy the good features not the bad features of other platforms.. Once windows phone had the most consistent UI experience..
The Onedrive app on iOS is beautiful, far nicer than the new one on Windows Phone. I assume it's going to suffer from the same rubbish UI changes as well.
Windows 8 all over again: Microsoft's pigheaded arrogance overriding customer's needs. Better believe I'll stop using Onedrive when I pick up a new non-Windows phone.
It is time to transition... FROM the android-copy windows phone
The horror is real! What's next? The introduction of skeumorphism or total replication of Androids UI?
