  1. Support for full Bluetooth profiles - including accessories, keyboards, low energy

    Windows Phone loses usability, market visibility and relevance, and falls behind competing products by not supporting the HID Bluetooth profile (and others) for actions such as hooking up Bluetooth accessories including game controllers, keyboards, and low energy accessories e.g. sport (Pebble). Full compatibility between WP8 and the massive Bluetooth ecosystem is important to

    • Add a timer app, stopwatch and a built in audio recorder

      Please add a built in timer and a stopwatch app or get it integrated with the current Alarms app.

      Also please add a system app for recording audio instead of having to depend on a 3rd party app for it.

        • Decrease the distance between the tiles, add a home screen, add more tiles sizes and allow you to customize each piece of tile colors

          Proposed to narrow the distance between tiles 30%, add a home screen, add more tiles size, allow you to customize each piece of tile colors, this interface will look nice. Microsoft put the choice into the hands of consumers, and do not restrict the consumer's freedom of choice, so that the WP system more personality and vitality, thank you!

            • Please allow full access to the wearable apis in WP8.1 to allow developers to integrate the Pebble Watch with WP

              Greg Banta of Bad Planet has written Pebble Watch Pro which is currently I believe the best way for Windows Phone users to use a Pebble SmartWatch. His ability to produce a truly integrated application is limited due to not having access to the Operator/Manufacturer specific apis for integrating Wearables in WP8.1. Unless Microsoft/Pebble are actively working on a native app, I along with many pebble users believe giving Developers access to these APIs would be a very sensible and positive move by Microsoft to allow owners of Pebble Smartwatches to use Windows Phones properly with them.

                              • Clock display in lock mode instead of empty screen

                                The phone is empty in lock mode, I will have to press power button to go the walpaper mode. Then again if you press power button again it goes to empty screen mode. This is become difficult to find phone in dark area. In Symbian phone, the clock displayed when its in lock mode, so its better to have same option for Nokia Lumia as well.

                                    • replacing and installing any different keyboards to use Instead of system keyboard

                                      the installing and changing system keyboard is good and is a personalization option
