    Microsoft will finally bring some sanity to the extremely long Settings list on Windows Phone.

    Apparently the next update, set to arrive over the next 2 months (and therefore likely coming to Developer Preview users sooner) will finally sort settings alphabetically, and will feature the same jump list as the usual start app menu.

    Other new features said to be on the way include the addition of a mobile data toggle in the action centre and Cortana coming as Alpha to even more countries.

    While making settings alphabetical would help somewhat, I would have liked even more if Settings could all be pinnable to the start screen just like apps, meaning for commonly used settings one would not have to dive into the long settings page at all. What do say guys?
    UPDATE- Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 is going to bring support to 2K resolution on smartphone displays, and therefore providing support to new processors like the Snapdragon 805

    I'd hope they finally support openvpn. For years and still waiting!!!! All the other ui dressing up is a design choice, they really need core features and full vpn protocol support is a must.

    And the FM Radio UI, it should be the other way round where the tuned/saved stations are shown first where, by opening the application one can easily choose a saved station with a single tap. why do i have to view/see the tuning bar all the time? i must be able to view/see the tuned stations all the time.
    we only tune and save stations once, then the next time it would be just a matter of choosing the saved stations.

    This error is appearing cause of wrong update packege. If you want rid from this error, you must downgrade your device or visit nokia care centre to flash your device. This is the only way.

    Update 1 aka debian red is not a big update and we already seen all features added by microsft. but, we can expect little more improvment and more device compatibility for living images feature and auto focous improvement.

    Well these aren't confirmed images and most likely the debian red firmware will bring more improvements to the higher end models. I wonder if they have figured out a way to get glance on the 930 and Icon since both lack display memory.

    I miss glance a lot. :( But sadly I'm not really confident that it will ever be available on my 930.

    Other then that, I hope they improve the 930/1520 camera because it's incredibly noisy right now.

    I think Settings should be designed over with UI, when we go in Settings now we see settings for System and Application, under System it shows many settings which is not just System,it should show Display,Network ,Connectivity,Audio & Video,Cloud & Sync,Applications you get my drift, and we swipe over to right we'll see the appropriate settings tabs, instead of JUST SYSTEM AND APPLICATIONS, alphabetical may seem better but grouping using correctly named tags will be much better for few, can even give us option whether alphabetical or like what I said
    MS should just refine Settings like what they did in Windows 8.1. RT and WP will merge soon I can't see this not happening.

    Sounds pretty plausible for a GDR release. Useful but not groundbreaking.

    Add pinned stations to a folder?

    I woud like the Settings menu to use more horizontal space. Just like how Sony Ericsson used to order the items in Settings by categories:

    They should also add icons for the settings. This will help and use the free space on the right

    I'd rather see improved speed of the OS. Man, after looking how smooth is iOS I was like "lol at Android and WP" I know this doesn't count as a feature, but still. About the features, I still want to see more Window's like UI on the phone, BACKGROUND WALLPAPER, also Tiles of the apps matching the colors as on Windows, and the look of the app list just something like in WINDOWS. :)

    They should add:
    - Optional category short for all aps view.
    - Detach preditive writing for all others writing options. If annoyring that is you disable predictive writing, also all of others features are disabled too.
    - Dedicated recording app. Onenote isn't good for this.
    - Xbox music - Stop playing when exiting for the app. If I close the app is since i dont like to continue hearing music, not to keep it in the background.
    - Manual sync option for Outlook mail when you have it as main alias in your MS Account.
    - Start page for IE instead of start in last session.

    This is complete bull****, sorry. You obviously have not seen Debian Red. Also, do not conflate Update 1 (OS) with Debian Red (new firmware), they do different things.

    What Debian Red brings to the table has not been revealed at all.

    A feature I would highly like is "Quick Action". (I basically invented the term). Its involves having the option to quickly reply to texts and facebook notifications, without exiting the app or game you are using. Its so frustrating to go to the message app and reply a simple "Yes" or "Lol" to a text, while playing Subway surfers! I know. Its something coming to IOS 8, and I think its already available in some Android, but then again, no harm in borrowing a universally liked concept. They could even implement it better, eg. But giving us an option to like or comment on fb status notifications from the banner. How about a swipe to the left for a "Quick Action"? The WA I visualize it, the swipe would expand the banner downwards, with the space having a text box and/or buttons based on the notifications. Hows the idea and implementation?

    Actually mate all those features u listed came with the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 and the Nokia FIRMWARE update for it is Debian Red.
    Like in case of Cyan, where the Windows Phone 8.1 update was the SOFTWARE and Cyan was firmware. One from Microsoft (software) and the other from Nokia (firmware)
    U failed to understand the difference.
    Debian will bring new camera algorithms, better battery lasting and such hardware related features, whereas the GDR2 will bring the probable features that u mentioned i.e. for the OS.
