    - FM Radio
    - LinkedIn Integration
    - Speed! (only battery drain is much faster)
    - Pedometer (app)
    - Smooth animations
    - GUI consistency
    - Kid's corner
    - 30 minutes option before sign in again
    We see Android and iOS evolve like crazy and WP10 is only loosing features. What's next? I think podcasts will also be deleted.
    I hope they do keep the Phone app live for a little while ;-). I was tinking to wait for the Surface Phone, but I don't see how that can impress when the software isn't any good.

    The old Bing News app. Much better, never crashed randomly for me

    Native QR code scanner... Why the f* remove this?

    Solid black color on the UI, not this weird grey like in the settings menu - feels like I'm using a cheap LCD display. I wish no app would follow this "trend". Black not only look better, it helps save some battery on phones with Oled displays.

    Square pictures on contacts and album art. No need to go full iOS on those.
    solid black colours look childish to me , the grey like colours are the real deal for me and is a very good improvement. i would also like the brightness to be reduced even futher, so that at night i will not be blinded by me screen display. and thast part of what i like in IOS

    I definitely miss FM radio and QR scanner. I think all phones basic functions should be covered within the basic install.
    Even bad radio is better than none at all. And QR-scanner button in cortana would be just brilliant, like it used to be.

    And lately I miss sms and skype chat integration. would be awesome if more apps could be integrated there or other app that works in similar fashion.

    HERE Apps is replaced by Maps in W10M? Offline maps is still there and transit works if you choose the bus icon as travel method (instead of car or walking) when using navigation?

    id love the removal of so many other apps to make os less heavy and also to have them on the store for those who may need them., cause most of them are useless to me
    agree with you there - things like podcasts, xbox,

    Besides what was already covered, I would like to see Double Tap to wake phone, seems like if a good feature isn't caught in a build, it goes away in the next build. There is Double tap in the tool bar to close, was in only 1 build, then that to went away.

    Flip to Silence... a great feature...
    On my Lumia 640, flip to silence is under settings->extras->Touchinput and here the second trigger. I translated it from german to english, so it may differ on your phone (or maybe this feature is phone relevant ...)

    edit: the location of this setting seems a bit stupid as it has nothing to do with touch...

    As for many: QR code reading. It should be such a basic function.
    People app integrating History content from social networks.
    People tile is just a tile, not even have a badge counter for incoming SMS or Email.
    Decluttered audio functionality integrate Groove, Podcast and all audio stuff into one.
    Properly working Cortana. Current release ring on not answering properly, transit suggestion not open Map app.
    Tasks in Outlook
    FM Radio, ain't used it often, but it was part of the system.
    Yes, Panoramas. It was great, instead this hamburger stuff...

    There's a nice free and fast QR scanner in store
    TThen you have to open the app first. With the built in scanner I can just tap search button. It is a much convenient way.

    1. I miss people hub integration by far the most with live tile updates for people and groups. Without it, the whole live tile interface lacks propose or meaning.
    2. Reliability
    3. Photosynth
    4. Wireless sync
    5. Bing Vision
    6. Smart DJ
    7. Innovation. Without #1 and other unique features, there is nothing to talk about; Kids corner, FM radio and rooms were others
    8. Attention to detail and beauty that was in previous versions
    9. Speed, efficiency, and prompt live tile updates; I assume they are going to fix some of that one day
    10. Smooth one handed operation

    It was gone for a long time on my 640XL too, they brought flip to silence back a couple of builds ago so it looks like it will (or should) come to the 950's if its not already

    *NOTE: on my 640XL its under settings > extras > audio > then slide over to "Enhancements"

    an EQUALLY stupid place to hide...er.. put it

    I really miss the Me Tile. It was genuinely great!

    You can still save your own number as "Me" and then pin it to the start screen but the square photo with push down animation is what I actually miss.
    The Me Tile was best though when there was still actual social integration

    My restaurant searching works. She undestand pizza, fast food, dinner, bar, chinese, jap food (Italy country)
    I'm in the US and it only works when I specify big chains and say or write something like "find" or "look for" but for instance if I didnt know the exact name of whatever place I wanted to go to it would just pull up a standard bing search.

    while before in the local tab (or whatever it was called) of Cortana, you would get all businesses in your area with ratings and able to dive in for more info or navigation within cortana, not some web link. And for instance I just wanted to search "select" a well known physical therapy chain and nothing came up with just "select" I had to put in "find select physical therapy".

    Overall much less functional and just not natural or convenient.

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned that 10 no longer reads my text messages to me when I'm on headphones (or plugged into the aux jack of my car, which was most of the time I'm in my car).
    Mine will read texts over Bluetooth (Cortana setting) - but what really kills me is that it won't read my Skype messages aloud that are coming into the messaging app!

    It may not be gone yet, but I already miss Kids Corner. Such a great feature that really should have been advertised more. Everyone I talk to with iPhones and Android is impressed by the fact that I can hand my phone to my son and let him play around in his own sandboxed part of my phone without access to my apps/e-mail/messaging and not have to worry at all about what he does with it. Apps Corner is certainly no substitute, at least not in its current state. Apps Corner is an absolute mess.

    Thanks for pointing me to that. It annoys me that the "settings" apparently doesn't include many of the settings. How is that a Cortana specific setting? Anyway, it's working again, so thanks.
    Utterly baffling. Glad you found it.

    Music player panoramas - rather than the totally unusable one-handed playing with an hamburger menu
    Music search
    QR reading
    People hub
    LinkedIn integration
    Consistent metro experience - again, that worked great for one-handed manipulation

    you don't have an AMOLED display then. those grey backgrounds, despite being nicer than a solid black, are a drain on the battery

    These two are there on the Store app's Downloads and Updates page. You need the latest version of the Store app for them to be visible.

    splash screen-less system apps
    fb/twitter integration/ people hub
    image review at camera app with simple slide
    built in qr reader
    almost instant store/onenote/office apps
    square contact images
    IE showed tabs at opened apps screen
    metro look
    fm radio (soon to be removed?)
    better one hand use
    video recording with stereo sound

    basically ms just tries to kill all features that set them apart from competition
    what is up with double tap to wake? did ms just remove that feature from some phones? i still have it
