    So you're saying that you want us to go back to the time when all those cheap websites can install their apps on the phone and there was no such thing as an official store that had all the trusted apps pass through a strict testing process to ensure your info won't be leaked or used by other unknown sources ?

    Thanks for putting words into my mouth and pretending like what I said was completely idiotic.

    What I want is the ability to customise at or near the level of AOSP. I want to have to ability to flip a switch and install things from outside the store - things that come from either trusted external sources or an active and engaged modding community. I don't want the things I've paid a lot of money to own to have its usability and terms dictated and limited by a multinational corporation with ties to the NSA. I want the ability to opt out of their plans and use the device according to my own preferences.

    The people who want the full-on Windows Phone experience could still get it, and the people who want to customise their phones can do that. The usability of Android with the beauty of Windows Phone and hardware of Nokia.

    He is entitled to his own wish list and I agree with him.

    More of an open system whilst maintaining performance thus a hybrid.
    (not like iOS where you can acces nothing w/o jailbreak and not like android where you can screw up your phone)

    Nice well said but you are forgetting a few items as well

    this is a rehash of my old post but it may over lap some of what you said
    Windows phone 8.1 list of items to work on
    1. Lock screen needs to be more expressive / Functional (more notification icons, , music controls on the lock screen with artist album and song labels ( we don’t need the album art like kitkat offers as the background).
    2. Lock screen lock options needed (ie picture password, voice unlock, face unlock, pattern unlock and pin).
    3. Actionable notification icons on lock screen option (double tap an icon will open the respective app.
    4. Battery percentage on lock screen
    5. Actionable Toast notifications mock up see attached pic.
    6. Action Center Toggles should be on and off switches not take you to the settings menu for wifi.
    7. Action Center Toggles should be at least 6 or more scrollable like Samsung does theirs.
    8. A toggle for Ring mode (Ring , Ring and Vibrate, Silent, vibrate).
    9. Action center notifications should be able to swipe left or right to dismiss them.
    10. Action Center notifications should auto collapse as more notifications come in (expandable and contractible ala android).
    11. Settings Menu can do with a tiled icon view as well as the current list view would be nice.
    12. When one taps phone we should have the option to go right into the dialer or the recent call screen. (I would prefer a sliding interface so from the dialer slide left for recent calls)
    13. An all programs grid view would be nice.
    14. When you launch Cortina she should expect me to speak or preferably a hello cortana would launch cortana from anywhere and she would be already listening to what I have to say.
    15. Folders should be built into the os not a nokia app.
    16. Make app resume and refresh time instantaneous or allow apps to periodically refresh in the background (ie getting a notification on fb messenger is faster than on my s4 but the apps has to resume then refresh to be up to date this should be seamless like on android. Maybe as a notification comes in the app refreshes and moves to a not suspended state for at least a minute so going into the app feels faster??? idk just saying MS).
    17. More BIG Name APPS that are coded properly with Full Feature set as ANDRIOD or IOS counterpart (I.E PAY DEVLOPERS TO BUILD AND UPDATE APPS FASTER KIND OF LIKE WHAT BLACKBERRY IS DOING.) Faster App updates (yes you Instagram lazy arse and others).
    18. Natively coded Facebook app please also chat heads or chat tile support would be nice for FB messenger.
    19. Power intensive apps native or not need to be refined
    20. More options under the camera UI settings menu I mean android and even BB have more options
    21. Notification light Support for non Nokia or devices not supporting glance screen (or an option to blink the windows key alone if notifications come in).
    22. Missing apps I need …. drop box, pulse news, oovoo, swarm ( foursquares replacement), google apps (youtube, google search, google+ etc), sound hound pro, and others
    23. IR blaster support??
    24. Keyboard is good … well done android phones I usually have to change for that but I have gripes. Do like LG or even Fleksy for android adjustable key size would be nice, add or remove certain keys would be nice, flick to the left would be good to delete works when swype is off, manually enter words into dictionary would be nice. Would love it if Windows would allow at least fleksy to integrate its keyboard into the phone as a replacement or if yall work with fleksy and integrate some of its features.
    25. Option to 3rd party keyboards maybe
    26. Option to separate ringtone and notification volume toggles.
    27. The X on an app in the task switcher should be a red Square with a white X in it stay true to windows please lol.
    28. Weather clock tile would be nice (I.E give the weather tile the option to show the clock on it too with options as to how you would like information displayed on the tile).
    29. Camera should show resolution options grouped under 16:9 wide or 4:3 for have resolutions to choose from and more options on the stock windows phone app

    mock up of the actionable notifications feature

    Now that WP 8.1's brought some well needed improvements. Surely there are ways to improve windows phone to such an extreme even developers would want to use it.
    Easiest way is to, uopdate the default apps
    Alarms
    Add more functionality like stopwatch, timers. Allow us to choose the default snooze times. Allow us to control the alarm volume (Maybe a toggle with cjhoose alarm volume or use universal volume)

    Calculator
    Ape Calculator2 here. Add all the niche Calculators that one could ever need
    Calendar
    Show more than one item on live tile, Support for multiple live tiles. Return agenda view
    Camera
    Merge with Nokia Camera or at least absorb all the functionality from the Nokia Camera apps
    Games, Music and Video. Reintegrate all three into the core OS ASAP at GDR1 if POSSIBLE. Make sure the lockscreen music controls work consistently, provide support for offline video playback in Videos. I mean seriously...

    News- Provide support for comments in articles that support them, articles which are pulled off the web because you are interested in a topic should open in the app and not IE
    Finance
    Sport
    Health and Fitness-Integrate with Rubntastic or Endomondo AND HEALTHVAULT
    Maps
    Internet Explorer-Make it the BEST. Use webkit if you really have to.
    Skype- Bake it into Windows Phone. Each WP device should come with its own Skype number and free VoIP and video calls
    Office
    Podcasts absorb all functionality from podcatchers in the store, increase number of available podcasts that can be found...

    I'd love for larger devices to be able to "Snap" ( i think this is what its called in Windows 8?) 2 Apps onscreen with proper multitasking. I'd love to be able to knock out some emails or messages while watching YouTube, etc...

    Or some form of real multitasking.

    Daniel talks about App & OS integration in a recent podcast. All you saying "Integrate! Integrate!" should give it a listen.

    bear in mind
    windows is the only os that does not allow for changeable keyboards,
    some of the features i mentioned are from Samsung touchwizz skin not android per say
    even if MS adds android features which would ring more people to the platform windows has its unique UI and way of doing said features so i dont view it as a bad thing.
    also andriod and ios stole some features from windows lets steal them back and make it better.
    other features are also things that feature phones have now not just andriod i think IR blaster support is one thats needed if its not already there.

    1) action center you can only remove notifictions by swiping to the right not the left
    2 music controls are accessible from almost anywhere in the whole OS using the volume controls Yes but i would prefer lock screen music controls and usual system wide music controls once not on the lock screen see image sum thing like that just in windows phone manner.
    samsung-galaxy-s4-note-3-leaked-android-635.jpg
    3 There are 3rd party apps that do this Third party apps for battery % on the lock screen should be built in the os
    4 Settings to me is unorganised will do a mock up of the tiled view or a drawing so you see what i mean and not meh it grouping under categories would be nice

    example of grouping settings under tiles or a by category
    System --------------
    Personalize

    - workplace

    Display (usual items under display +)
    - glance
    - touch
    - project my screen

    - brightness

    Phone
    - accessories
    - call + Sms Filter and settings
    - audio
    - extras + info

    Ease of Access

    I love that feature... And Samsung gets all the praise for it... It is already in my wishlist under "Additions"...

    Also... I am trying to find better explanations for some of the features in my wishlist that got lost in translations.... I have an awesome windows phone 9 in my mind.. I just tried to share it with the world.

    TLDR : The post would have been way longer if i explained everything that i meant by "integration"

    4 Settings to me is unorganised will do a mock up of the tiled view or a drawing so you see what i mean and not meh it grouping under categories would be nice

    example of grouping settings under tiles or a by category
    System --------------
    Personalize
    - Start + Theme
    - Ringtones + Sounds
    - Lock screen
    - Notification + actions

    Wireless + Networks
    - airplane mode
    - WIFI
    - Bluetooth
    - Cell + Sim
    - NFC
    - VPN
    - Internet Sharing
    - Network+

    Email + Accounts
    - typical add accounts
    - backup
    - sync my settings
    - workplace

    Display (usual items under display +)
    - glance
    - touch
    - project my screen
    - screen rotation
    - brightness

    Phone
    - accessories
    - call + Sms Filter and settings
    - audio
    - extras + info
    - about
    - phone update

    Ease of Access

    Region + language
    - keyboard
    - speech
    - region
    - language
    - date + time

    Sense + More
    - data sense
    - battery sense
    - storage sense
    - feedback
    - advertising id
    - quiet hours
    - driving mode
    - find my phone
    - kids corner

    applications would remain the same
    Reason for Meh!: I think tiles everywhere will make the system look boring eventually. And i think it will also make windows phone's performance decrease since deep blacks and minimalism makes the OS more snappier

    That's exactly what people said when windows phone 7.5 was around
    nah what you want is android 2.0 just with msft services... half the things you are add more clutter to the OS and the other are redundant . for example you want battery percentage in the lock screen. you can just pull down the notification center and there is the battery percentage. also actionable toast notification? whats the point of having it when you can press on it and go to the app and just type there.
    all im trying to say is improve what msft has on windows phone instead of adding more features

    So you're saying that you want us to go back to the time when all those cheap websites can install their apps on the phone and there was no such thing as an official store that had all the trusted apps pass through a strict testing process to ensure your info won't be leaked or used by other unknown sources ?
    You don't have to download them from am external unknown website. .. you cold still get everything from the Windows Phone Store (or whatever the name they give for the universal store in Threshold) but you busy have more freedom with your phone...

    I also think battery percentage is stupid ... And actionable toast notifications can be faster than opening the app... like liking a status

    nah i think a tiled view for settings would be cool but the list view would still remain like how in regular windows there is category view and list view with small or large icons.

    if MS does not go with the tiles i would like it organised into the following categories (i understand you with the tiles part but categories would be cool)
    Personalize
    - Start + Theme
    - Ringtones + Sounds
    - Lock screen
    - Notification + actions

    Wireless + Networks
    - airplane mode
    - WIFI
    - Bluetooth
    - Cell + Sim
    - NFC
    - VPN
    - Internet Sharing
    - Network+

    Email + Accounts
    - typical add accounts
    - backup
    - sync my settings
    - workplace

    Display (usual items under display +)
    - glance
    - touch
    - project my screen
    - screen rotation
    - brightness

    Phone
    - accessories
    - call + Sms Filter and settings
    - audio
    - extras + info
    - about
    - phone update

    Ease of Access (usual stuff under this)

    Region + language
    - keyboard
    - speech
    - region
    - language
    - date + time

    Sense + More
    - data sense
    - battery sense
    - storage sense
    - feedback
    - advertising id
    - quiet hours
    - driving mode
    - find my phone
    - kids corner
