Fine, I changed from symbian N8 to Lumia 925 week ago and hope WP will go back to basies first:
- Ring volume: when I f.ex play Angru Birds and put volume zero. Same time I put incoming ring volume zero - you have to guide volume control all the time because ring volume and normal volume control are connected
- I can't put bluetooh, wifi etc. on/off with one tap like in Symbian
- If I try to find f.ex address of some company via internet. In Symbian I could tap the phone number in homepage of that company (fixed phone, mobile phone number in differed form) and phone ask shall I call, yes. In WP I have to paint the number tap it in clipbard, open phone solution, paste that number to that then I can call
etc, etc many other little things
I don´t even know how those things work in IOS or Android, but those three little exambles are so stubid and bad programming, that I have to think if I take my symbian phone back, if I only get 925 with Symbian....

The Windows 8.1 blue updates for Windows smart phones will give Windows 8 smart phones a Notification center plus better multitasking ect

The joke is people here don't understand software development and the amazing work Microsoft is doing. Stay with your cluttered icons and for iPhone users the lack of a back button. Ha, you all say where is the notification center but the iPhone doesn't even have a basic feature like the back button. Wd all know the "Blue" update will have a notification feature.
