    Update 2 for Windows Phone 8.1 should be announced anytime now. Rumor has it that the settings will now be arranged alphabetically and data toggle will be available on the action centre. What else do you think will be included in this update?

    I for one hope for smart-dialing. The lack of this functionality in 2014 is frustrating tbh.

    Interesting feature suggestion. Personally I'm fine with four, but I can see how that'd be great too.

    I say we add in native stopwatch and torch (light) buttons on the action bar and in the OS. Then I think the 8 to 10 swipe to the right for more suggestion would be awesome. Also the biggest thing would be fixing lock screen applications for a complete fluid experience.

    Cortana support for torch would be awesome such as:

    "Give me some light" etc..

    I hope that's true.

    I wish for options in action center as well... But most importantly folders in the app list.

    Yes thats another feature we need. But i don't think its coming in gdr2. We can expect this in Windows10. Lets see.

    Alphabetically sorted settings would be frustrating and pointless. The rumor is being able to manually change the settings list.

    I'm hoping for:

    an option to hide games in the app list (this was the worst decision in 8.1)
    an option to make the system tray auto-hide like it did in 8.0
    the return of the text editing cursor
    a better/faster games hub
    a better pictures gallery
    data toggle in action center
    getting rid of the stutter when returning to the start screen when closing an app
    more accent colors and/or returning cobalt to what it was in 8.0
    option to change the the charging sound

    So basically fixes to all the stuff that was broken in 8.1.

    I'd like to see at least 1 more toggle available as an option if you have a screen of 5" or more. 6" screens, like on the 1320 and 1520, get 5 toggles as standard.

    I agree, it's the big elephant in the room, nobody really talks about. Since WP7, we've been clamouring for better mobile support. In 8.1.1, we finally got the ability to open password protected office files, yay! Unfortunately, we can't actually edit them, urrh!

    Well since its a relatively minor update I don't think we should expect much.
    - Data toggle in action center
    - Flashlight in action center
    - Alphabetically sorted settings
    - Smart-dialing (its 2014, hello?!)
    - USB-OTG

    I would really like to see:
    1. Better Games app
    2. Better sync with win8 (like themes and stoff like that)
    3. Not the tiles but the background should have an wallpaper (too big feature for gdr update?)
    4. Support for 3rd party application to start via camera button
    5. More shortcuts in notification center
    6. Bring back green tile for music and video :D
    7. Yeah a flash app shortcut would be nice
    That's all I would wish for windows phone and then it would be the best is out there (when not looking on the app gap xD)

    Edit: Colorful tiles like in win8 would be cool too but I can wait till win10 for that

    If you have an app that is a flashlight you can just say "Open flashlight" or whatever the app name is and Cortana will open the app. Most turn on automatically when they are opened.

    A better version of Office is even more important now that Office doesn't require an Office 365 subscription on iOS.
