A grid list is best suited to presenting homogenous data, typically images, and is optimized for visual comprehension and differentiating between similar data types.
A grid list consists of a repeated pattern of cells arrayed vertically and horizontally within the grid list.
Tiles hold content and can span one or more cells vertically or horizontally.
If the text in tiles needs to be prominent enough to distinguish between primary content pieces, consider using a different container, like a list or cards, optimized for displaying text and facilitating reading comprehension.
Lists: Optimized for reading comprehension, particularly when comparing a set of data containing multiple data types.
Cards: Used for content with inconsistent formatting, such as photos with captions of variable length, or data sets with heterogeneous content, such as a mixed collection of photos and videos and books.
