    Focusing on the name WINDOWS PHONE it should have the ability like windows pc.

    1) Ability to HIDE Apps. [security]
    2) Ability to password protect PEOPLES, MESSAGING, WHATSAPP or ANY APP. [security]
    3) Cortana should have a feature like a diary so users can add personal question and answers, it will be much more fun. [Entertainment]
    4) File manager should be able to hide files like we use hide things in windows pc. [security]
    5) If the phone is password locked no one can power it off until it is unlocked with password, so thief will not be able shut it down. [security]
    6) IE browser should support file uploading (videos/images/doc) [essentials]
    7) Transparent tiles are much required thing in windows phone but adding animation images to tiles will be actual fun. [Entertainment]
    8) notification centre shouldn't have the limit to add shortcuts atleast 8 shortcuts should be allowed. [essentials]
    9) file downloading/uploading should be shown in percentage in any app. [Essentials]
    10) Front camera can be use as face recognition password. [security]

    thats all for now.. nothing new or great is popping in my head.These things are the basic requirements to make windows phone popular in front android and ios. Dont just make a smartphone make it a Secured-Smartphone."

    No. 5 is definitely not dumb. It's a great idea actually. And by using find my phone feature, it can be pretty easy to track your phone then.

    The Idea is pretty damn good... But it cannot be used properly... One can simply remove the battery to turn the phone off, and battery running out is also a problem ...
    Also adding your own questions and answers will put an End to the Surprise element

    I kind of like that the Xbox One can recognize me by my face, a neat feature.

    1) Ability to HIDE Apps. [security]
    Privacy, not security. Can't think of a reason I'd want to have an app installed, but then hide it.
    2) Ability to password protect PEOPLES, MESSAGING, WHATSAPP or ANY APP. [security]
    Again, privacy rather than security. And Windows Phone already has that. Just put a PIN on the lockscreen.
    3) Cortana should have a feature like a diary so users can add personal question and answers, it will be much more fun. [Entertainment]
    That'll probably come soon.
    4) File manager should be able to hide files like we use hide things in windows pc. [security]
    Privacy and again, I can't think of a use-case.
    5) If the phone is password locked no one can power it off until it is unlocked with password, so thief will not be able shut it down. [security]
    Privacy. For handsets with removable batteries, they could just do it that way. And to be honest, if someone's stolen my phone I don't really care if they've powered it off or not.
    6) IE browser should support file uploading (videos/images/doc) [essentials]
    Good call.
    7) Transparent tiles are much required thing in windows phone but adding animation images to tiles will be actual fun. [Entertainment]
    Not really my kind of thing, but could be fun.
    8) notification centre shouldn't have the limit to add shortcuts atleast 8 shortcuts should be allowed. [essentials]
    Not an essential, but could be useful.
    9) file downloading/uploading should be shown in percentage in any app. [Essentials]
    Not essential, but possibly useful.
    10) Front camera can be use as face recognition password. [security]
    Only if it actually works. Never had any luck with facial recognition stuff myself.

    What about phone's with non removable battery?

    No 5 - Not a good idea. Phones do hang even if it's rare and with no removable battery the phone needs a soft reset anyway (or you would have a brick).

    No 6 - It will probably come eventually but not a big deal currently

    I mean there are lumias with non removable battery. Why not introduce the feature in them?

    What's the purpose? So you can use "find my phone"? Someone who steals your phone and is not completely out of his mind will immediately remove the SIM card, hence render find my phone useless.

    Wait. Find my phone doesn't work with lumias which don't have a SIM card? I didn't know that. Thanks for telling.

    Make that notification centre transparent and increase the number of shortcuts there.
