Off the top of my head
1. No separate volume controls for ringer / music
2. Taking out the "folders" button in outlook app in Mango
3. Taking out the "forward" option in IE in Mango
4. Back button behavior for IE
5. No ability for batch deletion of text messages
6. No ability to set default phone screen to the dialer instead of history
7. No weekly view for Calendar
8. No ability to pin Bing Music search on homescreen
9. No ability to customize theme colors
10. No ability to have phone ring but texts/emails vibrate
11. No ability for custom alert sounds (text/vibrate)
12. No ability to exit out of a app in multitask view (I know they are dehydrated, blah blah. I want them clear for easier switching)

I can't really think of anything to be honest; though I'm prepared to accept that other people have differing opinions.
The separate volume controls thing, to be honest doesn't bother me at all as I usually keep the volume up full and just put it in vibrate mode if I don't want calls or notifications to make sound. In fact I only ever change the volume if I'm listening to music or if an app insists on making stupid sounds.
Again with the screenshots... I just don't get it. Why would I want to take a screenshot unless I was a developer, in which case I could take them on my computer? What are people so desperate to take a shot of? Like I said, just don't get it.
Even the lack of folders doesn't bother me, although the option might be nice I guess. For me though, I like the immediacy of press a tile > app opens. I don't want to add a further step to that process, it would feel like things were taking longer to do instead of getting faster.

I've been using my Trophy for nearly a year now (started with NoDo). I really like the OS and don't imagine I'll switch anytime soon to another platform. That said, there are things I would like to see changed. Among them:
1) More customization of tile colors - more available colors and the ability to vary colors by tile.
2) Easier back/forward and tabs in the browser - I like the moving of the address bar to the bottom in Mango, but liked the functions better in NoDo. I also agree about the back button when not using the task switcher to switch to the browser.
3) Multitasking enhancements - I like the switcher, but some apps take a while to load after switching. I also wouldn't mind seeing the webOS-like (and Win8-like) swipe down to close.
4) Bring the jump to letter functionality in the app list to xbox live games.
5) Ability to manually flip two-sided tiles on demand.
6) Photo album covers for skydrive folders either don't load or take a long time to load.
7) Would like to see more services integrated into things like chat and contacts.
8) Ability to view music fron skydrive in the music & videos hub.
9) The ability to quickly create and pin a One Note note from a tile - currently there's a "new note" tile you can pin, but it seems that you have to go into the office hub to pin the created note.
10) Maps navigation requires you to tap to get audible directions - I'd like option to have it auto announce turns and such. Also, there doesn't seem to be a way to get directions to a location from anywhere other than your current location - I'd like to get directions from any chosen spot.
I'm sure there are others, but 10 seems like a good number to stop on for now. Btw, if you know of ways around any of these or know that some of these complaints are actually false, I'd love to hear about it.

but seems like people are running out of BAD things to say about WP so we always see the same 10 things come up! I guess that's a good thing . WP gets allot of complaints but its all the same once . so it int so bad.
an other thing I LOVE about my WP is we have the GREATEST mobile nation app in the world! :D haha

this forum is hilarious.....
It is totalitarian in nature, point out any flaws and everyone loses their minds.
Get over it.
You expect every post to be rainbows and kittens?
Cry me a river, people are allowed their own opinions of te os. Just because they don't want to rub their d*** against their phone every night doesn't make them any less intelligent than you.
You can deny,deny, deny, all you like, though denying something doesn't stop it from existingThanked by:

A lot of mine have been listed already:

-No forward button in IE
-No weekly view for Calendar
-No custom alert tones for texts
-Have to tap the back button like a madman to close all my apps
Other than that, I love it,
