    1. Drop most OEMs.....let blu handle the low end and then release Lumia as the main brand.

    2. Set out to purchase a few of these startup apps that are growing in popularity and/or enter a licensing agreement if possible with apps like vine/twitter, insta and snap chat.

    3. Bring hubs back

    4. Make a windows 8/10 compatible zune

    That's it.

    5) Hardware Control: We don't need ten 512MB phones to cater to the low end. ONE well-planned 512MB low-range for the people who only have a fifty to their name, ONE midrange phone, ONE high-end 5-incher and ONE powerhouse phablet would be enough. That's just more hardware you have to roll out new firmware to. More parts that your OEM has to manage and replace. Regional barriers could be easily conquered if the phone were loaded with enough antennas to make it a world phone in the first place. Then no "international edition" needs to be made, nor any incremental number change for different carriers. Simplicity is something the entire Windows Phone platform is horribly lacking in... and I don't see anything about this entire experience becoming polished when there's so much the OEM has to focus on.
    What you listed as number 5 is the number one thing I would change. They need to make exactly one phone of each type low-end, midrange, high-end, phablet. That one phone in each range with enough radios and antennas to work anywhere on any carrier. Contracts with carriers to include a deadline for firmware testing so that all devices can be updated the same day. This one change would eliminate 90 percent of the complaining on forums like these "why don't I have xxxx update yet when people on yyy carrier in country zzz already got it!"

    Number 2 would be a backup system that works. There is no reason app developers should have to "opt-in" for their data to be included in a backup. The entire user portion of the phone should be included in the backup which would include all customizations, saved data, passwords, app settings, all of it. An iPhone user can connect their phone to iTunes or iCloud and run a backup, get a new device, restore the backup, and pick up right where they were. A Windows phone user should not have to perform hours of tedious remembering and fixing settings after restoring.

    Number 3 would be landscape mode as an option everywhere including the start screen.

    Number 4 is keep the Feedback app in the final release.

    Number 5 would be to hire a lot of "evangelists" and permanently station one of them in every place that sells phones.
