Well, we all have obviously been using 4.4 Kit Kat for a while now. I love it personally! But there's always room for bigger and better things and more importantly, improvement.

Some things I want in stock Android:

-complete removal of all holo blue and more UI uniformity
-lock screen notifications
-customizable quick settings
-more speed and battery adjustments
-redesigned camera UI (FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE)
-battery percent indicator built in
-snazzier UI animations


That's it for now, I think. My list will probably grow as will yours.

What about all of you?

-Anthony

I have a lot more requests for the tablet UI. I love Kit Kat for the Nexus 5. It felt like Kit Kat was a step backwards for the Nexus 10. They actually removed tablet UI features and put in phone UI in places.

I do agree with a continuation of removing the blue, and making it all a little sleaker.

I'd just like to see more attention given to the camera and battery

I would like to see the original features be addressed. The fact that Google Hangouts on the Nexus 5 acts strangely still concerns me. When sending out a group message, converts the message to MMS ( as it should ) however, once you hit send, it goes out to all people as individual SMS messages, which, when you get a reply, as opposed to being a group MMS conversation, is an individual SMS conversation. It's the little things like that which make it difficult...

I see mixed responses with the tablet UI all the time. I, for one, like the UI now compared to the old way.

As far as future additions to Android, I cant think of many. KitKat is beautiful in my opinion. The camera could use a little work though. I'm always looking forward to seeing what Google does though.

Separate the damn ringtone volume from the notification volume! I have volume butler, and it does what I want, but if I use my volume rocker while in a call, watching a video, listening to a song, etc, I have to go back in and adjust my volumes in there again. Pain in the rear.

Lossless PNG camera saving direct from raw data.

Quick setting customization

Art by default

Google music cache auto shrink if system needs space on data partition
Perhaps by flagging certain data as cache despite being on data partition and not cache partition.

The main thing missing from Android to make it user accessible is complete phone backup. I can't believe they still haven't introduced it.

I've been using Android phones since the G1, but one thing I prefer in iPhone is the fact that it used to automatically sync with iCloud everyday and backup. That way, if I lose my phone tomorrow, I can get a new one and restore an exact copy to it.

Using Google Drive, it should be the simplest thing to backup apps and data and settings.

I know Google has built in backup which backs up some data, but its not the same till all developers code for it. And yes, I have been using Titanium backup and also using the built in Google Drive option, and its still not the same.

Honestly, I'm happy with KitKat. I can't think of any other features that I need, but of course, any will be welcome.

My biggest wish? Get rid of the Holo blue in the in-call dialer. Why they didn't just make that look like the new dialer is beyond me, but it looks horribly out of place.

They definitely need to get rid of that awful black and greyish blue gradient background and replace it with a white or gray. It's very strange that the phone UI is very dark yet all of the Google Apps are incredibly bright, it just doesn't look right.

Actually I'm pretty happy. The only things I would love is a battery percentage next to the battery icon, but because its stock, this feature won't come.
Maybe.. Lower battery darin?
