    Count yourself lucky if you didn't use any of that stuff because it really sucks when they were some of your favorite features of the OS. :( There are things I didn't use that other people have lost as well so they are not as much in my mind as well. But whether or not some people use them or not this stuff adds up and starts burning a large number of users.

    History grouped all communications to any one person and listed them by date phone calls, voice mail, SMS, each email account, etc. So the way you communicated was not important but who you communicated with was what was important.

    The people app used to support notifications for individuals. Whether it be an email, voice mail, text, missed call, etc. You could pin your boss, kids, significant other and get notification and history for just those select people. It was a wonderful feature. Now none of it exists. It was all replaced by round photos that roll around. I get really ticked off when I see all that was stripped out and that photo just rolling around like some stupid ball. Functionality before fluff!

    Some of the early builds of W10 mobile contained the legacy people app. It fit in the new OS so nicely too. :'(

    Dark theme support was done consistently win WP 8.1. Cortana was done perfectly. Now in WP 10 and Windows 10 desktop her results are always in a white background box and look very disjointed. However, it looks like the new Skype may actually be supporting themes correctly.
    Cheer up man. I'm sure they will add the history back in for the user. I mean take the groups feature into consideration. If you create a group and pin it you just get a blank tile. My guess is eventually the tile will update with different information based on what is happening within the group. There's a lot of work to go. The history for the user just makes sense and since the app is being written bottom up, I'm sure they just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Remember that a lot of this stuff is being coded by different groups. One feature may rely on specific code implementation by another group. We should just enjoy the process and give feedback to microsoft as much as possible.

    No worries, the update only took place in the last couple of days if I'm not mistaken.

    The way people harp on about this aero notification center. lol.
    But ya.. We need features.. Not visual upgrade.

    • I can't close all apps with one button? Like is it so difficult to add a "close all" button on the multitasking screen????
    • Restart phone? If I want to restart my phone I need to manually power it off then power it back on? Why can't it be like android where u press the power button have you have options to power off/restart etc?
    • Notifications for email subfolders ?? - Blackberry did this way back when. Why can't I get a notification for an email that arrives in a sub folder??
    • Offline One drive??
    • Performance improvements!
    • Default apps
    • Default folders
    • Interactive live tiles
    • Split screen.
    • Background downloads
    • Download manager
    • I really like how in android apps that are downloading from the store show up in the action center with a % bar. Screenshots also show up, making it easy to share
    • Not sure if this is fixed (don't have a sim for my 530 on windows 10) but in 8.1 you could not view call duration when looking at call history screen. Call history screen never even went back that anyway....
    • Charing my phone while it is off



    And... My biggest gripe.. I don't know what the name of the technology is or how it works.. But for example, on other os, when you go to say, twitter.com... The twitter app opens up.. If you go on facebook.com, the facebook app opens... I would really love that as well on Windows Phone

    These are what I can think of off the of my head. But there are so many little things can Microsoft can add to the OS to polish it and bring it up to par.

    People need to wake up and stop getting obsessed by this visual upgrade. Oh. Look! New animation! Oh Look! Picture behind live tiles....

    We need REAL features people!

    It has been made sufficiently clear that W10M is, as of this writing, not yet feature complete, although it is for the most part (whatever that means). See the first page for details. As such the question raised by the OP has been answered.

    If you want to share your list of features that you're hoping will make it into W10M, then this is the thread for you:
