    The WP dev team is doing a great job, however there are a few features I'd like to see in a future update.

    Which features would you like to have the dev team develop?

    Here's my list:

    • System wide search is still missing :(
    • Face recognition in the photo management app...
    • I would also like a Video Management app separate from the photo albuns, with video editing and youtube, social media, whataspp, sharing in general!
    • Finally, hardware LED notifications on new phones




    Have a great day guys!

    One feature I'd like, is a slider for adjusting brightness in the action centre.

    Expanding on your last point, it would be even better if the home capacitive button doubled as a notification LED. However, this probably wouldn't be feasible due to some phones with on screen buttons.

    I'd love to have the ability to change the font and font size in the text app.

    Some phones don't have capacitive home buttons, case in point is the ATIV S!!

    I miss the chance of saving tiles arrangement for thematic use or just as backup

    For the Led Notifications, I think on the lumia Icon (929) the two stripes on the top and bottom would make a great way to put leds on it, so no matter what position in youer pocket you would be able to see the led and it would look cool. also make it RGB so that you may customize it.

    Just to let you know - WP8.1 isn't out yet. So a thread already wanting more may or may not be so useful. System wide search is going to be there in WP8.1 for example.

    1.id like different volume controls for ringer and media(its coming)
    2.the battery percentage on the status bar( not sure if its coming or not)
    3. Background on tiles( would be great 80% sure its coming)

    about 99% of the features that are lacking are going to be available on WP8.1 most importantly a notification center and quick settings access.

    I think its useful to see what other users think are lacking in the OS, even though great changes are coming, the Windows Phone needs to innovate more to differentiate from iOS and Android instead of playing catch up.

    For example I think the music app isn't all that great... I much prefer the iTunes layout in iOS because my first music player was an iPod mini, also I loved being able to crossfade between songs.

    Also I'm sorry but I didn't read anything about a system wide search could you point me to the source?

    Would be cool!!

    Some other things I'd like to see:


    • Cross fade between songs
    • To be able to slide to the point in time where you'd like to listen in a song instead of holding the FF button

    Yes, how is scrubbing not in a media player in 2014? It makes it impossible (very difficult) to use for podcasts.

    I would also like to see speed dial built into the OS. I can make a call with a single tap in Android. I know I can pin a contact to the start screen but it still takes multiple taps to make a call.

    My wish is pretty simple ... a way to select all emails at once, instead of having to manually select each one individually.

    Why don't you go use Android or an iPhone if you hate Windows Phone so much?

    2. pretty sure that even if it isn't in the status bar, you'll be able to pin "battery power sense" to the start screen which should actually give an accurate and up to date percentage as opposed to the current battery apps that update every 30 minutes.

    They really need to let the customer choose how many appointments get synced to the phone rather than having them automatically drop off so quickly.
    Maybe I want my whole calendar history sync'd down to the phone. Why did they make that uncustomizable?

    I think being able to have two applications on the same screen would be cool. It would be like snapping in Windows 8.1 or like what Android has where you can be texting and watching a YouTube video at the same time. Also a sliding brightness bar.

    it'll be there, it's only missing because the sdk is missing everything related to cellular network

    1. Call duration in history
    2. All live tiles updating live instead of every 30 minutes.
    3. Option to only show sender's name in toasts and hide message content. (breach of privacy I say)
    4. Hide phone number when calling someone from locked screen using speech (another breach of privacy)
