    I do not like that when im in IE , every time i open a new tab and switch back to the 'all tabs' section , i cant get organized in it since everything is just like...out of order in there. Normal thing would be that the first page you open is on top left , and then goes second right after , and so on , but its never like that.
    Second thing i do not like is that im not allowed to have data internet in quick notifications...
    Third thing is slow music application. The app opens up like 1-2 seconds , and then the worst thing , when i press the 'songs' tile , to go to my all songs , it starts a little sync or something , so id have to wait again before i could browse my songs. And i cant scroll fast down , cause they have to build up , and somewhat do other little sync'-s again.
    Next is music and video app in general.
    I really dont know what the f*** do i need xbox for... I REALLY DONT WANT AN XBOX SETTING IN MY PHONE , I DONT USE THE DAMN THING , NOR I USE THEIR SITE. I would just want to see playlist with my own videos , and a playlist with my own songs. I don't want the first thing which opens to be Xbox video ? Seriously ? Like..really ? I scroll left = movies store , i scroll AGAIN = spotlight ? I open music app and see xbox music ? Those are really all the complaints i currently have , but all in one , best phone i ever had.. but i guess u cant have it all.. (imo the xbox crap just looks like an annoying addvertisement .
    - Oh yea , and i don't like that they removed the native lumia facebook chat integrated with the messages.

    The process of turning the ringer on/off is now too complicated. You now have to press the on/off button, then the volume button, then CAREFULLY touch the little down arrow in the top RIGHT corner (if you even slightly slide down from the top, you get the notification center and have go back to step 2), and then finally you can reach over to the opposite side (left) and touch the ring/vibrate symbol.
    8.0 was a ton easier.

    You can tap anywhere on the top bar to lower the volume controls, not only the little arrow. ;)

    Also, text-to-speech and speech-to-text when paired with my car stereo worked a LOT better with 8.0.
    Firstly, Cortana uses far too many words when listing options to read/ignore, and reply/call/I'm done, etc.
    Secondly, Cortana stops listening when I dictate a text if I pause for half a microsecond. Then she yammers on for an eternity before giving me the option to add more.
    Thirdly, voice navigation through bluetooth has an even longer lag then it used to. Now it is totally unusable.

    Ok. Cool. That's a little better. But it's still an extra tap and too easy to accidentally pull down the notification center. While I appreciate the ability to separately adjust volume of different functions. Microsoft (as must any phone maker) needs to try harder to make silencing and un-silencing the phone super easy. Ideally, I need to be able to silence my phone without looking at it. The whole point of silencing is to not be rude to the people around me.

    One of the qualms I have is the bug in which rewinding or forwarding a video emits a loud, annoying, split-second sound. It comes even when the video/phone is muted. I hate it.

    Ok, they could let you hold the Vol Down button and silence the phone without turning it on, but: On/Off > holding Vol down until is silenced is just one step more.

    Or

    On/Off > Vol button > Tap the icon (which I use more), is one more step.

    Is not that complicated.

    Maybe change browser to a non-ms browser such as Chrome

    Have I got this wrong or does it take 4 steps to mute the volume control?

    When you are in a meeting and your phone rings loud, you are fumbling around -> 4 steps to mute the phone can feel like a long time... especially if you start by holding the phone upside down! I should be able to shake the phone, turn it over, maybe double-click the volume control - anything really - because at times my second reaction is to want to stomp on it!

    You can press the on/off button. The phone will stop ringing and then you can mute it.

    My brand new phone is ignoring the "desktop version" setting, and keeps diverting to mobile.

    Specifically, on Facebook, I force the phone to go to the full homepage - but ANY link off the homepage is automatically diverting to a mobile version, and I hate mobile versions of websites. "Hate" is a truly vanilla description for how I feel about mobile websites...
