I am sorry to say but the new design has not improved the experience as it should have. The hamburger menus is still there which is annoying. I should not have to explain this to a design team. But here is the thing. Android does not have any menu other than the hamburger menu where all options are stacked. Windows phone has the '3 dots' menu already. Adding the hamburger menu makes it confusing and more importantly look like an android knock off. We windows phone users are disappointed. Please fix it fast!

There's a way to make hamburger menu not as flawed. Take a look at VK app, although it uses hamburger menu, it's easily accessible by swipe gesture. That's intuitive and closer to Windows Phone navigation system.
Agreed. I hate the hamburger menu too. I can't stand it on Android or on PC either.
It makes no sense that Windows Phone is adopting that flawed idea.
