    Oh sorry, I meant text reflow. Easy to get that mixed up with teleportation.

    I'm tired of having to use a third party app for that. Teleportation should be a baked in feature. I mean, they achieved wireless charging - how difficult can teleportation be?

    Exactly. Android has native apps for teleportation. That's why we can't get over 4-5%.

    I think that the same things that most of you mention will come in wp 8.1, but I hope for wireless mirroring and the ability to do more with nfc like turn on and off WIFI not only go to the WIFI menu.

    I hope WP 8.1 is an exact copy of Android, so I don't have to listen to all the whining about missing features or a ******* Notification Centre.....

    You can call me pessimist, but I think we will receive a little in this update. And it won't happened till the end of 2014. It took more that 3 years for MS to bring WP to current state, why do you think they will be able to make more on less time? This is Microsoft! :)

    What was leaked was a very small list and we have no idea what is coming. As for optimism, it's a part of being a WP user. :P

    Upcoming features / enhancements in Windows Phone 8.1 which would make the Windows Phone OS more ‘complete’
    Let's break this down shall we?

    All Windows Phone 8 devices will be updated to 8.1 - Already stated that this is happening, only block will be carriers and feature limits due to hardware.
    Notification center with quick settings - OK, stated as coming
    Better multitasking - OK
    Simple flick upward to close applications in the multitasking view - OK
    Linear screen brightness adjustment - OK
    Music scrubbing in music player - no idea what this is
    App Folder support for all Windows phone devices - Sure
    Call / SMS blocking for all Windows phone devices - Sure
    Option to Change the Default Search provider in IE to Google for all Windows phone devices - Not going to happen. It's WP.
    Improved Battery performance - Sure, not sure how easily that is fixed.
    Minimize Sound distortion in Video recording via software enhancements for devices that don't have Nokia's Haac technology - Sure
    File Manager - Not in the way Android is but likely deeper integration of Skydrive. Whether this makes everyone happy I doubt it.
    Manual IP Configuration - Sure
    Control ringtone and media volume separately - Stated as coming
    Slide to the right on main screen to enable notifications - Sure
    Official BBM (Blackberry Messenger) app for Windows Phone - Not up to MS
    Official Yahoo! Mail app for Windows Phone - Not up to MS
    Official Soundcloud app - Not up to MS
    Official Youtube app - Not up to MS
    Ability to change notification sound setting in Whatsapp - Sure
    Cortana (Voice Assistant) - Sure
    Option to display Battery Percentage at the status bar - Sure
    Internet Explorer Improvements:- Sure
    - Ability to Swipe back and forth in IE to change page - OK
    - Full Screen support by auto hiding address/search bar -OK
    - Password support - OK
    The ability to create and add songs to playlist from the phone - Sure
    Fix for overheating and fast battery drainage on some WP8 devices - Stated this issue already, sort of. Not sure how easy it is to fix
    Fix for Lightning Bolt and Gear on start-up bug - ???? - Is this an issue that happens frequently?
    Option to disable Bing (search) button when in apps/games that do not require a search function to prevent accidental presses - Yeah I can get behind this one.

    Nice list in general. I can't see a reson why most of those won't happen. We'll have to wait and see.

    Music scrubbing in music player - no idea what this is
    See below:

    Music scrubbing in music player – Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone

    Same goes for videos, go to youtube.com from IE and then load a video and try scrubbing / skipping through it, it's not possible.
