We are working on revamping our UI for an on-demand video delivery product on mobile phones. The challenge is that prevalent user connection is still 2G which is very slow (about 40-50 kbps) and we want to keep the page light to be able to load quickly.
Since the page has video content to sell, we also want to keep images/screenshots of videos to grab user attention, but because of the challenge of page load on slow speed, we cannot keep too many images on a single page.
We have about 1000+ videos and still want user to be able to quickly find content without any dependency of search (typing is difficult on mobile phones and a lot of users prefer not to type). We also wish to have the design to feature that we have so much content and also wish at least 80% of visitors will view the whole list of available content.
