    The ability to use a decent smart watch (like Android Wear devices). The band, whilst technically competent, is horrendous in all other respects and I want a watch, not a band.

    I'm waiting to see what Android M and WP 10 bring and will decide in November whether to move from WP after all these years. The availability of a decent watch is likely to be the deciding factor.

    Regards

    The ability to move or expand RAM on to the SDCard. Then, you can continue to use lower end devices, but increase the value and performance of those devices

    I just made the switch last night, so this is shooting from the hip a bit. However, the one thing that I have noticed so far that I miss is that the photos app live tile no longer has the option of using your favorites to switch between pictures. That seems like something that should have been left alone, and frankly, a no-brainer. Finally, designating a default browser of my choice would be something I would want to have.

    as an owner of a moto 360, they are not all they are cracked up to be. first off, they are big. i'm a big guy (6' 235lbs), and this thing is a huge brick on my arm. you notice the size, people notice the size, walls, door frames, cars you walk by, they notice the size too. my daughter has an apple watch, and she is tiny, and the apple watch size is a lot smaller and looks almost normal on her. however, with my big oaf hands, my finger almost covers the entire screen, so i can't properly use it. second, they are motion sensor activated, so when you turn your wrist, it comes on. so, naturally, driving at night makes your car a disco. third, because of the constant on and off, the battery dies. so when you finally get an opportunity to use it, it's dead. fourth, if by some chance, your battery hasn't died yet, and you go to check the time, it comes on, then you have to swipe away 25 random notifications to see the time. no, i don't care how long it will take me to get home from here, great, i made 12,000 steps today, i don't care about the weather in 4 different locations... fifth, the watch faces, no matter how cool they look online, they look like garbage on the watches. sixth, the only useful purpose i have found is if your phone is in your pocket and you get a call from someone you don't want to talk to, you can ignore the call without getting your phone out. otherwise, you can reply to texts, if you don't feel like looking like a weirdo talking to your wrist. all in all, i bought it for the novelty, which wore off in about 3 days, which is how long it took me to realize just how cumbersome having a smartwatch is.

    Hallelujah, thank you for that dose of real world smartwatch reality , after the glossy ads, the tech reviews (don't pay for it and use it for a week) the truth is they are neither as good as we hoped nor ready for the main stream!

    240 FPS slow motion video. It's the only feature on iPhone 6 that I covet. Not enough to switch to iPhone 6, but the only feature it has that I don't have on my 830 that I want.

    • Get OneDrive placeholders back
    • All-in-one message/email hub like Blackberry
    • Sync start menus between W10 devices
    • More consistent design between MS apps/features

    That could be terrible. lower end device users use lower end SD cards that mean 5MB/s writing speed for your ram. No please.

    SD cards and flash memory in general are not meant to be written to like this. They would wear rather quickly and, most likely, violently.
    I want Cortana to have a list system like Wunderlist integrated (which MS just bought, so maybe it'll happen sooner rather than later).

    1.swipe to bring up app switcher/task view just like it does on windows 10 PC.
    2.interactive live tiles
    3.Quick scroll(should scroll much faster than it is when swipe quickly or dragable scroll bar or something like that to view longer list or pages)
    4.default app selection
    5.user should have control over where the revived/downloaded files go.

    How about features that Windows 8.1 had such as Quiet Hours having access to the Calendar. I'd also like the ability to set alert tones for each account.

    Why does MS have to start from scratch on everything it does lately? Why does the latest OS have less functionality than the previous? MS needs to provide a "Public" area of it's OS where apps can share information with one another. If Quiet Hours needs access to the Calendar, then the Calendar needs to publish it's "public" info so I can have my QH silence my phone automatically when I'm in a meeting.

    Using the Iris scanner to authenticate everything. Once you scan your iris you shouldn't have to login to any of your apps or anything. It should also be used as a full wallet with all your credit cards/debits and supported at ALL stores. It should act as your passport, your drivers license and anything that links to you. Basically create the ultimate digital wallet that removes your need to have an actual wallet. Receipts should generate onto your phone after purchases etc.. Security should be paramount.
    Microsoft is a huge company and has the assets to make such a thing happen. In Canada major banks all use tap right in their debit cards. Although there's no security on it so it's limited to 100 dollars transactions. Pin is required for more.

    I think Iris scan + kinect technology to map out the eyeball veins and everything unique about you should be impossible to fake. Security mechanisms just in case you are being forced to scan your eye such as detection of fight or flight or a secret view pattern to disable the phone.

    There...there is only one page. The Settings menu is absolutely fantastic in Windows 10 Mobile. It's not perfect but gosh it's four hundred light years ahead of Windows Phone 8.1's.

    Iris scanners do not map the veins in the back of your eyes. That would be retina scanners, which are far more secure yet require you to be much closer and take more space. Iris scanners simply scan your iris. It's less secure but you don't have to be as close.
