    • FullHD (and even higher) resolution support for Windows Phone 8

      Windows Phone 7 (7.5) could have taken much more interest if they had supported higher res displays at their time. Please don't let Android and iOS to go into the lead again and make technological support gap as they did with WP7. So, please, support at least FullHD screens in WP8 as soon as possible.Thanks

      • Send Email as... (add "from:" dropdown box)

        Need to be able to choose from which email address I send email from.

        It's common to have several email aliases and it is critical to have:

        - a dropdown box in the "From:" field to choose which email address to send from

        - default to reply as the address an email was sent to

        This should be pushed out ASAP.

          • Allow pinning of an app from within the store

            Sometimes it's not possible (Windows store errors) or desirable (very large file but not on WiFi or other fast connection) to download an app that's being viewed in the store.
            In this scenario it's necessary to remember the app and search for it again in the store later.
            It would be useful if it was possible to pin a deep link to an app in the store so it was easier to return and install the app later.

              • Xbox music to remember playlist position

                The Music + Videos app needs to be able to resume the current playlist after closing the app.
                This is perhaps the one thing that I miss about the iphone, in that I could restart/shutdown the phone or close the music app and next time I opened it it would resume the previously running playlist at the same song.
                I'm not a fan of needing to listen to upwards of 50 songs on a playlist before being able to restart my phone (especially given some of the feedback about the amounts of restarts some people need to do).

                      • Enable planning of routes with multiple waypoints in HERE.COM and sync with Lumia phones

                        it was possible to create routes and collections in here.com and to sync these collections with previous Nokia phones. Unfortunately, this is not (yet) possible with Lumia / WP phones. A clear step backwards. I had to reactivate my old Nokia 5230 ...

                        • Offer option to vibrate on both text message and calls

                          On my phone (Lumia 920), I get vibrate for phone calls but not for text messages. Since all my prior phones had this feature and I used it alot, this is very annoying.

                            • Tracknumbers and disc grouping in music/video hub

                              When listening to compilations, it is difficult to distinguish single discs within the compilation without tracknumbers in the title list. The option to display tracknumbers in front of titles and a visual distinction between seperate discs within a compilation would facilitate this. Zune for PC does this already (at least for the tracknumbers)

                                It shold be possible to limit data roaming to national operators only. This is needed if you don't want international roaming but need it because you are on a mobile virtual network operator.

                                    • Bring back the Music/Video Hub

                                      It was just very nice to have all media in one central location. Its layout was simpler and smoother than current Xbox Music/Video apps.

                                      • Ability to Set a Homepage for IE

                                        It would be much easier having a page that appeared whenever IE is launched.
