    I would like all of the features Microsoft has removed back.

    Media player controls back on the lock screen (make it an option) or at least let me adjust the length of time UVC is displayed. I hate hitting forward on UVC, wait a sec to see what song is playing go to skip forward again, aaaaand it's gone.😐

    They broke Bing vision use cases and offered no alternative. I realize it is a lens which is still available from the camera app but, unlike every other thing on my phone there is no icon in the app list (which is a huge mess now, by the way) if I tell Cortana to launch Bing vision she doesn't know what I am talking about. Really, there should be a button within Cortana, perhaps next to the music note, which can launch Bing Vision. I also think just saying "Cortana look at this"should launch it.

    Messaging hub... WHY? If people didn't like facebook messages, etc., being mixed in with SMS they had the ability to disable it... I expected MORE options to integrate, not less. Like Skype. I am completely baffled at the removal of a perfect feature. Fire the loser that made that call, and put it back!

    Overall concept of hubs. Some fool has forgotten what metro, aka Modern UI is all about. Games hub has exploded out into my apps list. Media hub has been shattered into three abysmal stand-alone turds. And people hub now offers to open Facebook, rather than just showing me a feed. Why did you disintegrate the whole concept?!?

    I really like Cortana and the new home screen options and notification center, but why did we have to give up so much?

    Untrue. People hub still shows all the feeds it always has. The new integration is better and more consistent. Before, people complained that you couldn't do things like like comments in the hub, so instead of updating so you could only for facebook to change something in their API that broke it until an OS update could be put out, they allowed deep integration with apps, so when you want to interact with a post, you get to with the full effect.

    MS must add a file manager, which writes and reads ALL folders in the phone, SD card, and OneDrive. It's scandalous in 2014 wp users don't have a file manager in thei system, as if they were series B users.

    I agree, a full Windows Explorer-like file manager. Not just some file viewer. I want to be able to do everything I want with the files on my phone!

    Allow more browser rendering engines, this would greatly improve the browsers and apps on windows phone.

    Cortana to more accurately find dates and times from emails, She often finds times, but not the dates or vise versa. Would love if she was improved to work out times and dates together.

    Third party apps to change start screen, like what they can do to lock screen. Better arrangement of settings.

    Old music+video app.. And i need a launcher like in android like it would ask us if i want to open a link in uc or in ie.. And photos app too.. Then a good user interface for settings it should be organized. And new action centre changes to set some more quick launches...... Plus a new organised way for notifications with each app like other Os and even a new quick links for action centre

    How about automatic app uninstall? Of course it would be optional, and ask for confirmation if used. But for example, I have lots of apps I simply don't use anymore and don't care about them. Sure I could go through and delete them manually, but I often forget they are even on my phone unless I go through the apps list, which I hardly ever do. When in there I just search, or use a pinned app on Start.

    I also would like to see the ability to remove apps from 'my apps' on WP or on win 8 'your apps' list. I try a lot of apps, if I don't like them, I would like to never see them listed (as if I never installed them in the first place)

    Option to change lock screen background vs time or location. I'd like to show xbox album art on my lock screen, but not while I'm at work. Could be part of a general visual profiles option. Other example: auto select bright UI during the day and dark UI at night / in the club.

    Ability to update the phone via PC, like we used to do in Zune. It should be kept as an option in the Windows phone app for desktop application. Everyone doesn't have Wi-Fi. Please vote for this feature here-

    I'm not trying to be a ******* here,.. But do you actually know someone who has absolutely no access to wifi? Even if you don't have it at home, there's tons of free wifi everywhere. I find it hard to believe that someone in the 21st century who owns a smartphone has no access to wifi.

    But yeah, I could see a point in just updating through a pc too.

    I don't want to be rude, but there is a world outside the US too, you know. In India very few people have Wi-Fi. Most of them use 2g, or wired internet(LAN) via PCs.

    I'm also not trying to be rude (wow, such wonderful people at one place), but even in Serbia (which is far worse than India I suppose) we have WiFi everywhere. Almost every home that has access to Internet has also a WiFi router. Not only that but there's also free WiFi hotspots around the town (even in the smallest towns). And another method you can do is (if you have a WiFi card on your PC or a laptop), share your LAN connection by WiFi.

    These are all "workarounds", but I agree that the option to update via PC would be nice. Just in case someone needs it. Though that requires MS to build a full client for WP (like Nokia had with their Nokia Suite).

    Talkin' about Nokia Suite, have you tried that? Can you update your system with that program? IDK since I dont have a WP yet, but I can do it with my N8.

    Yeah, I'll admit I don't get around the planet much. I live here in the US and have visited Canada, but I would assume that everyone can at least find a hotspot somewhere. It's amazing how people who live in the US and places like it, just assume that the rest of the world has nothing.

    So, just thought.. The Map app shows nearby wifi. So I just zoomed into the middle of india, kept zooming into the random town that was nearby. And the app found all kinds of wifi.

    Yeah, I used to use Nokia suite to update my old Nokia 3110 Classic. It was the best PC client I ever used-It allowed me to send messages and call via the PC itself, when the handset is connected via Bluetooth. Even android doesn't have such features in any of the PC clients I have seen.

    I think that would be corporate Wi-Fi, we have lots of MNCs here. Very few hotels and cafs have access to free or public Wi-Fi. Some colleges too offer ' Wi-Fi' Campuses here in India.

    please fix the email client, there is absolutely no need to maintain the same aspect ratio of portrait mode when you rotate the phone to landscape mode.

    i rotate the screen so i can read a longer line of text and the email app increases the font size but maintains the aspect ratio.

    It would be nice if the settings were organized in a better and perhaps more stylish way. It's a bit messy with everyting in long list, where many of the settings even have similar names so it's a bit cofusing.
