    In Windows Phone, the UI is too zen, and overly zen to such an extent that it's very difficult to find something you're looking for.

    Example, in Settings, under System, there are a long list of functions, almost 50!!!

    The list looks like it's radomly placed, not in logical grouping/sequence and not even in alphabetical order. No problem if the list is less than 10. But, we are talking about almost 50! To add to the difficulty in locating what we want, there's no icons to denote. It's just walls of texts! This made the search extremely difficult.

    MS please do something about it!

    Joe Belfiore mentioned this in a QA session with WPCentral some months ago. MS are aware of the fact that the settings menu is a bit of an organisational mess and it's on the roadmap for change (but not as a high priority).

    Commonly used settings are now available as part of the action centre, which does a reasonable job of bypassing the clutter.

    search would be helpful, I am unsure if it is integrated with Cortana (and I think it is), if that's the case that solves the problem for some.

    If they don't want to clean that clutter immediately, an easy way would be adding a magnifying glass at the top right to search for a particular setting like in Windows 8.1 PC settings. WP settings is like Windows XP classic Control Panel.
