    Attachment 60224 id love to be able to get the glance looking similar to my nokia 700 zeta standby screen which is using Qoo apps
    sometimes i feel people expect too much.
    i mean that is an individual opinion what to expect, but why we are so lazy that we need so much at a glance.

    Yep - the Windows Phone tombstoning model makes some apps painful. I'm visiting Harare, at the moment, where the mobile networks are weak. Today I compared Skype performance while walking back to the hotel for lunch. I received no Skype notifications, even though we were busy. Skype for Windows Phone often doesn't give any notifications when in the background (bearing in mind it has to "resume" after the phone has gone to sleep). Back at the hotel, I tethered the iPad to my Nokia 720 and it caught up with Skype before the Nokia! The interface is lovely, but Microsoft cannot win with smoke and mirrors; the benefits must be real.

    I really want the shutdown charging (not booting to WP, just showing a battery icon) feature for Nokia devices, does anyone know if this will appear in WP8.1? Thanks so much!

    Remove that hideous ♥ heart symbol from the battery icon when in battery saver mode that blocks half the battery. Use a + symbol or something.

    Went back to IPhone from Lumia 920 because I wanted the following, so if MS can include the following - I would switch back to a WP handset in an instant:

    - GAPLESS PLAYBACK, for the love of all that is holy - please!
    - Ability to scrub audio, holding down [>>] to search through a track is a cruel joke.
    - Updated id tag support, I had way too many albums show up as "Unknown artist" and had loads of stuff lumped into one "album".
    - EQ (Spotted a theme in my grievances?)
    - Convince my bank to make a WP8 app (beyond control I know).

    That's it, I absolutely have to have a solid music experience on my phone - everything else I can live with.

    i never knew somebody needing so much the GAPLESS OR LOSSLESS playback.
    i am not that music freak actually, thus i never understood the need.
    but i would suggest something. if u r so into music, u better carry a dedicated media player instead of using phone. ur experience will be multiple. i remember myself carrying Creative PMP and then iPod Touch in the past for listening music. but then gradually, the usage got low due to work, now listen only in the night or when in traveling on tour.

    I would love to see the Windows 8 / RT "Snap On Multitasking" making its way to WP8.1.

    Its easy, intuitive and would make sense on 5 inch+ screens.

    Of course no leaks are indicating to that...

    Option for true backgrounds would be nice. At least let us decide how we want our start screen to look.

    there are many features that we don't recognize also. such as, in old good Symbian or Android or iOS, if u want to share something via Bluetooth, u don't require it prior enabled. just share it via Bluetooth, then phone asks whether u want to enable it or not. but in WP, u have to prior enable it, otherwise u don't get share via Bluetooth option at all.
    there are many such small things, but they make difference in operating by bringing easiness.
    I'll be very grateful to microsoft if the WP8.1 update brings this small feature..!!

    I really love all of the updates we will be getting, especially the action center, but what I just heard makes me want to cry!!! I've just been told that Cortana will not be available in some countries? I get the fact that it will be available in US, UK and China. But will it really not be available for the rest of the world?? Or is it just that there will only be one language??? Because I can work with just the English language! Can anyone clarify or confirm any of this?

    It only going to be available in the US first it coming out later to the UK and China.

    I assume it more to do with integrating Cortana with local countries bing services.

    Hi All

    What feature would you want the most I put my example below:

    So the feature I would love to have is a split screen for WP8.1.

    This is how I would use it I take alot of notes for studying so I would have OneNote open then have a split screen for internet browser, amazon kindle, YouTube etc which would make it easier for me instead of switching back and forth apps.

    Additional given an option to resize the size of the two app so one can be more longer or wider.

    I do this alot of this on my surface 2 and would love it on my phone that would be my outstanding feature.

    What about everyone else?

    Added: You can have as many features that you want the most no longer necessary to stick to one feature.
    really serious question ,, what about app to SD card option ??!!?!!

    Make the start screen background like the current Windows 8.1 and I'm sold.
    Just wondering, if WP 8.1 does support USB OTG, can I change the layout to Dvorak? (I have to type in this layout for medical reasons)

    I didn't hear anything about usb otg support yesterday
    So it means that wp8.1 still won't support usb otg?
    Or did i miss something?
