Theese are couple of fixes and features that i think Msoft should fix/implement into W10M:

1) messaging app should support same swipe gestures like outlook app. i often find myself swiping a SMS to delete it..but no luck haha.
2) icons of the apps in the notification centre in the latest build should be just a bit larger, they look odd so small.
3)sometimes i use an app and get back to start screen , the wallpaper seems to move, like its rearranging or something...wth is that?
4) in the notifications&action settings, please dont show all the quick actions tiles, make an expand button or something, its filling up all screen.
5)ability to leave more space between the tiles, that would make start screen even more customisable (i wanted a clean start screen just wit a weather and clock live tile in the upper area and some small tiles at the bottom and for that i had to download an app and create so called empty tiles and make them transparent) Many people i asked said that w10m start is to cluttered, especially when you pin lots of tiles different dimensions and colors.
6)secondary start screen the left> a swipe from regular start screen should bring a secondary start screen where you can pin whatever you want, contacts, web pages, etc, so the main start screen become more cluttered.
7)music controls interferes with windows hello. if i listen to music and i want to unlock my phone, the iris scanner starts up only after music controls goes off.

And theese are just from on top of my head.

My current start screen (about what i was saying at pt. 5):

The 1st suggestion is interesting, I'd love to see it (post it in feedback and give us a link to upvote). I also agree about the 2nd one, though this is the first build in which we have the new action center layout, it will go trough changes with time. The 3rd is probably normal, though I may be wrong. The 4th is already there, there's a colapse button since I think the first build, and since 14327 you can chose and rearange your shortcuts. The 5th would be meh. The 6zh is a no (for me). And IDK about the 7th one, I don't have Hello.

6)secondary start screen ... so the main start screen become more cluttered
There is a hidden secondary (and tertiary) start screen below the main start screen ;)

Although because of 5, it may require dummy tiles to achieve nice results. On 1 and 5 I agree.

Does the clock update often enough? It seems to be a bit late.
