    So we know that Windows Phone 8.1 update will have a wealth of new features but what if that wasn't the case?

    If Windows Phone 8.1 only had one new feature, which one would you choose?

    I would choose the new SD card support for apps and media.

    Well, if she lives up to the potential, Cortana.

    If 8.1 would have only one feature I'd buy an Android.

    It would be hard to choose the notification centre or cortana. I think I'd pick cortana, though, because of the reminders she can give. I forget things all the time and being able to ask my phone to remind me to do something "when x" or "if x" would be so useful.

    Battery Sense for me, so I can see which apps are trolling.

    Notification API then devs can start sending notifications to smart watches. (Sorry. I have a one track mind.)

    The feature that I'm most excited about is Cortana. I can't wait to compare it with Siri and Google Now.

    All of them I think it's important that Windows phone stays competitive with android and IOS to even be considered as a viable choice.

    Cortana...for sure.

    This is really the ONLY feature I've been waiting on since my first WP device, the Sprint HTC Arrive (along with NFC payments, but that's more of US not adopting it thing). Ever since getting my Arrive, I've always either carried two devices or completely switched to an iPhone or Nexus device because of Siri and Google Now. I understand a lot of people don't use or need voice assistants, but when I'm driving with my kids it is VERY handy for ALL kinds of scenarios: reminders, finding somewhere without having to give a specific "find x" query, etc. I think the key is having natural conversations. TellMe would be fine for me if it supported natural language conversations, but it doesn't (and lot of times, what it does translate comes out wrong, though it has come a long way).

    Indigo and Maluuba have kinda sufficed up till now, but it's about time we received a native natural language voice assistant.

    I would love if Microsoft adds more feature to LiveTiles. Like more animated LiveTiles and support for interactive LiveTiles something like Interacting with Music Player or ability to watch a Video on the LiveTile itselft :) I know the idea is crazy and not listed in the 8.1 Features list.

    I will choose "SD Card Support". Not able to install Games in my L820 due to space issue.
