    If anyone of you has watched a video of the latest android 5.0 features and design,believe me , android 5.0 is a big step forward for Google, I wish Microsoft goes through the same foot steps and bring us features that we have been missing out on for a long time, i would like to see change in windows 10 for phones, beginning with the User interface, colors, better design,animation,redesign of the start screen,better action center,download manager for the browser with other already existing features on android like USB OTG , support for external wireless devices such as Bluetooth mouse & keyboard support, better organization of files, it sucks seeing camera videos in photos and WhatsApp data in pictures, In android everything is put where its supposed to be, videos in videos and photos in photos not like the WP mess.
    I would love to see important features like the led light, vibrate, vibrate and vibrate until i pick, windows phones mostly vibrate once, incase you don't feel the single vibe, you can easily miss an important call incase you where in a noisy area.
    Lastly is work upon apps.
    We should not see anymore poorly designed, neglected and broken apps like instagram which need to be updated, missing apps like snapchat,candy crash and Google apps need to make their way to the platform,alot of cool games are still missing on the platform.

    Windows 10 should be a big change from the previous updates

    I think WP 8 & 8.1 was good.
    The only thing MS messed up was Xbox apps(music,video & game)

    And the lock screen app.

    Lets hope we don't suffer from these inferior quality official apps

    Windows 10 wont change anything. Or can anyone offer a theory why Instagram, Twitter and IMDB will suddenly stop being crapps because of Windows 10?

    I think Windows 10 will change a lot.

    I am looking forward to an updated Office, especially OneNote and Outlook, combined with Bluetooth HID.

    App-wise I hope for some shopping apps so I can get my wife back on a Windows phone.

    Windows 10 has the potential to make a splash but MS current track record suggest they'll muck it up somehow. I'm keeping my expectations low.

    Windows 10 will bring new APIs therefore making it easier for devs to bring more of their app features to windows phone, the current problem with WP apps is APIs.

    I quite like the WP twitter, though the W8 twitter is a bit half hearted

    While you're waiting for WP10, why not just buy an Android and add the WP8.1 launcher?!

    You'll get the familiar WP8.1 interface, but all your apps will have the colour you desire, and there will be plenty of shopping apps available.

    ;-)

    But you get pretty colours! And pretty colours trump a great OS, don't they?

    (Personally, I love the flat, black look, which I can't have with Android Lollipop.)

    We should not see anymore rubbish apps that we have suffered with wp8, i don't want anything to remind me of how bad wp8 has been to me!

    Windows 10 should be a major change from the previous WP dead!!!
    Could you possibly try translating into English? Subjects, objects, verbs, punctuation, etc. (in the correct order) are your friends. It is rather ironic when someone insists on insulting word choice but appears to otherwise need a translator in order for someone to understand their points. To get to my point, it does not matter where you are on the planet - insults and offensive language are never appropriate. Do you walk up to random strangers on street corners and insult them? If you choose to communicate in English and still then feel the need to refer to someone or something using disparaging language, you would be advised to at least take a shot at constructing coherent sentences....

    And... you seriously find a need to comment on his choice of vocabulary and sentence structure? Though I do not agree with his choice of "scum-Droid" (God knows what's that), I don't see a need or point to write an entire paragraph of words that he would (according to you, since you said that his language is bad) not understand.

    And this is related to the topic because? Like you said, you don't simply go around and insult people. And in my opinion, that's an insult. You don't insult other people's language. He may not be a native English speaker. In my country, our people know at least 2 language (with 3 being the norm), and countless dialects. Personally I can speak 3 languages + 2 dialects, so I really don't see why you should insult his language. Granted, I still do not think "scum-Droid" is suitable to describe Android......

    Wow, it's not like the post was totally incomprehensible...

    I definitely want to see an updated user interface for desktop/laptop. I've seen a couple of cool concepts around the interwebs.

    Differences in equivalent apps, in general, are what impact my experience the most when going from WP & Android. Forget about lack of apps on WP. For the apps on both that I use regularly, the WP version is more poorly developed, implemented & maintained, in general.

    This is far more material to me than any OS/UI changes. I easily adapt to those. I just hope one day I will no longer have the need to pick up my Android device because the same app on WP won't let me do something as well, or at all.

    The most exciting things about Windows 10 is a single OS on multiple platforms and apps that will scale depending on the screen.

    That's exactly what we have today... Xbox, WinRT, WinX86, and WP are all Windows NT underneath.

    I'm not sure what it is about Android 5.0, but it is definite compelling. With that being said, I did just buy a 1520 last night :-D

    It has the same store, but no, its windows phone 10 because would you really expect to run Windows 10 on a phone? WP10 makes more since.

    If it's the same OS only ith a different UI, then it's goiing to be inherently insecure, prone to security issues, and will require hundreds of MB of updates every Tuesday! In no time at all, all those restore points will consume every last byte of phone strorage...

    There will be no sandboxing, viruses will be rife, the OS will gradually get slower and slower, until it takes 5 -10 minutes to boot the phone.

    I sincerely hope that rather then Windows Phone 10 really being WIndows 10, it's the other way round - desktop Windows 10 is Windows Phone 10 with a different interface.

    Your argument is invalid. Android was flat for as long as I can remember and did have transition animations.

    Material Design and Metro are completely different.
