Do Live Tiles in WP8 Display more information?

Case in point; the SMS Live Tile, when using the Large Size, doesn't seem to use the whole tile to display as much of the text of the latest SMS received. I noticed this of the Mail App as well, where there's a lot of empty space. See below pic for reference. Obviously, there's a lot of room for the text to reflow so that you can see the rest of the message, but it's being cut off for no reason that I can see. Obviously, when in Medium or Small size, the tile just displays the number of unread messages. Anyway to get around this?
