    I am lucky to live in Barcelona, where the Mobile World Congress is held every year. Gabriel Aul has posted on twitter that he will be meeting us insiders on a bar, so I will be going and I would like to get some ideas of what would be the major feedback coming from the WCentral community.
    I feel like I have so many ideas and feedback and things to talk about with him and the rest of the Microsoft team that will be there, but I usually am a bit messy when it comes to writing down those things.

    So feel free to give me your ideas, lists, suggestions or feedback that you think must be heard! Please be it specific things, not just "make Windows 10 Mobile snappier". The first thing I'll do myself is congratulate him for his work on twitter and the enormous patience he has with some of the most passionate tech-communities I've seen :P

    Let me know guys!

    Please ask him why there are so many variants of every Lumia. With the 950/950XL, Microsoft missed an opportunity to make one firmware/OS image per hardware model instead of the hundreds they ended up doing. It's got to be a lot of work keeping up with them all, resources that could be better used for something more productive.

    Say about the missing dimmed grey nav bar on 950/XL to prevent burn-in.
    Also about the black stains/bad calibration of the display at very dark greys.

    There are more unlocked carrier free variants of 950 and 950XL than there are carrier branded variants.

    Please notify him that we still cannot select an random/custom image as glance background as the "Glance Background Beta" app is unavailable and dysfunctional since months.
    The official glance screen app under settings only allows us to assign lock screen image as glance background.Please request him to bring this feature of the beta app in the official glance screen app of windows 10 mobile.

    Try to borrow some money from him. Tell him it's an investment as you will pay it back. After all, he may be laid off next.

    Tell him about Edge's underperformance - random crashes, random page reloads, awful desktop mode browsing and the lack of forward navigation. Also tell him the display still blinks. Tell him that no one's Outlook account is outdated still the Mail app gives syncing error. Tell him how inconsistent the Settings app is. Show him these concept pictures from a Behance user:- https://www.behance.net/gallery/2750...obile-Update-2 and ask him to take a few genuine ideas from them, not all.

    And last but not the least, ask him never to scrap Windows Mobile. There are millions of die hard fans and users who won't be able to take the load of end of the mobile platform

    (could be Samsung at least, they have at least a few variants of the Galaxy Alpha, the A has a locked bootloader, the W is the one with a Snapdragon, the others all have Exynos chips, etc. etc.)

    Say hello on behalf of us fans who can't make it.

    An option to re-install system apps (e.g. Outlook Mail) when they get corrupted rather than hard-reset
    An option to "refresh" the current system build; That is, rather than use WDRT, which will throw insiders back to a production build, an option to re-install current build (go through gears, reinstall apps, etc.) when things get screwed up. MUCH faster than WDRT ->Insider
    A safe start option would be nice - load bare bones, no 3rd party apps to debug.

    Better cache management on w10m or atleast include a feature set(by MS) to clean app cache every month or two for every app installed via store.
    One important thing is to make w10m bug free to do simple tasks like calling,messaging w/o even needing an update.

    I was about to say the same thing. Bring along real Nokia flagship, show it to him and ask he ever used one before. It's obvious the people behind W10M have amnesia.

    Ask him about the 3d view available on other browsers and phones but not on Edge - ask him about snapchat (for the young generation) and ask him about VVM for dual sim 950xl

    Aul has nothing to do with SnapChat.

    You would have to ask someone else about that....

    I went from 7.8 to 8.1. What did I miss in 8.0? There are still some things in 7.8 that I liked better like wireless sync, deep social media integration, and I had the Focus for nearly 4 years and it did not crash even once.

    I think all you need to tell Gabe is to quit taking away our toys.
