A similar question has already been asked here - Grid View vs List View for products . But i would like to get clarity on some specific facts.
Here are a few points to be considered/found from researching
Attention from the user infinite scroll won't be present and the number of items will be limited. The distribution of attention to each list item must be maximised. In case i'm using the list view the last last items won't get much attention.
Space for description To maximise the attention i can use grid view , but in case of grid view the amount of description i can give is very less compared to the list view.
The basic dilemma is which is to be given more importance ( description or attention) when you are advertising/marketing the items in the list. The items in list will have no relation to each other , so user can only understand about it through description. But attention to all the items must be close to equal since all are of same importance.
