    Most of all, I want Google to focus on the battery life. I'd rather them take Apple's approach on notifications, pause apps, and only let certain services run in the background than what they're doing now.

    I'd also like them to clean up the lockscreen a bit. The way they did widgets seems a bit tacky.

    Full backups of wallpapers, ringtones, apps, app data, app placement on homescreen, etc. via the cloud.

    Option to initiate voice as soon as you activate Google Now by swiping up from Home button instead of bringing up Google Now cards and having to either say "Google" or taping the microphone button.

    Default video chat app like FaceTime but cross platform. Obviously if released on iOS, users would have to install it on their iDevices, but it should come default on Android devices.

    Same thing for a messaging app. Get rid of G+ Messenger and Google Talk. Merge into one that integrates with the texting app. And integrate Google Voice too.

    That's all I can think of for now.

    Address the battery issue and a better camera app. They should get rid of the stock wallpaper it sucks. Bulk deletes on gmail.

    I want to walk into my office in the morning to a desk with no laptop or desktop, only a big monitor (cordless except for power) and cordless keyboard and mouse. I want to set my Nexus X on the wireless charging orb and have it automatically take over all these peripherals with a desktop environment.

    In other words, I want my phone to be a replacement for everything else. And whenever I go to someone else's office or house, I set my phone on the orb and away we go...

    Ok - maybe this is Android 6.0?

    Don't know about setting it down to charge and take control automagically, but the rest sounds like a Ubuntu phone, circa late 2013, might be for you. If they can get it to stop lagging...

    I'd be happy with just a program that unified all the google chat services with SMS/MMS and allowed for EASY video chat.


    I don't ever expect it to happen but a program that would allow me to manage my media from my different google services:

    Play - organize music
    Gmail - Contacts and calendar
    Google+ - For auto-uploaded photos
    Youtube - Videos
    Drive - to keep your miscellaneous stuff
    Carbon - For app data (I know it isn't a google service but they need an equivalent or to let us use our google drive space or something)

    Love having all my stuff cloudified with google but not having an easy way to organize all that stuff is annoying as hell.

    "-Backup/restore home screen and Application data to Google drive and restore to any device."

    this. i want to be able to swap to a new Nexus device and have everything - settings, homescreen, preferences, and even my app preferences - all as it was.

    Has no-one requested a time-travel feature yet?


    On a more serious note, I noticed that I can't click phone numbers on my email. Was this always the case? And if so, they should fix this problem with the next android iteration.
    And, while this is an issue bigger than android - it would be nice to have some standardization set for compatibility with external devices. At the moment it seems like, for example, apple has a rather large range of iphones/ipod compatible desktop audio systems. Android phones, however, do not. I think there's Panasonic and maybe on or two other lesser known brands, but the better brands like Bang & Olufsen, Bowers & Wilkens, Onkyo, etc all have some rather nice audio systems compatible with the iPhone/iPod.

    Everyone wants such major things. All I want is an undo option.

    Other than that, better select/cut/copy/paste would be good and a more consistent android experience (like the back button function). When I use my iPod touch, I don't worry about how the keyboard will work when I'm in Facebook vs my personal email vs my work email vs a forum or the note app. It's the same experience everywhere. Things like the keyboard or time-date selection or navigation should be the same no matter what you are doing. It shouldn't be up to each developer to reinvent the wheel.

    I also would like the app info option to be available when I select an app on my home screens instead of having to scroll through the app manager. Oh, and more than five home screens. Widgets take up space!

    Love the guest mode Idea, Id say allow the guest user to make a call (no access to contacts) view current location/maps and maybe turn on/off wifi and Bluetooth, it can kindof merge with what what the lockscreen widgets do. Good idea, but at the same time cant remember the last time I lent someone my phone.

    - I feel sometimes I need the multiple window support.
    - An update for all devices that require it to update something like iMessage, so anyone on any recent android device can see if they're typing or if they sent their message or not.
    - Free drawing on the the gallery edit.
    - Have the ability to crop any size wide or tall, not the shape of the picture but smaller.
    - Hold back to kill app
    - Have the Ability to uninstall any unnecessary apps

    - Ditch the holo theme. It's been nice while it lasted, but it now looks Google has been going with a simple, white card looking system. I personally think it looks more modern and better. I'd like Google to peruse that, as right now, it's a bit of a mish-mash with some sections blue then some apps all new card looking themes.
    ...
    - For whatever reason when i type i, it's always little case i and not capital i like it should be. More keyboard improvements.
    Better battery is always a good thing.

    Unfortunately, most apps still do not use the Holo theme. So that may not work.

    I'm not having too many problems with the keyboard other than having to add lots of common words that I would have normally thought would be stored already in the phone's dictionary. Like Chromebook, apps, bloatware, bootloader, dock, etcetera.

    4. Need to be able to uninstall apps directly by long pressing it on the home screen.
    5. stock keyboard needs improvement with swiping
    ...
    7. lock screen needs improvement (should allow you to place favorite apps on that giant circle so you can get to them quicker.
    Instead of long pressing, it should just be a double tap, kind of like ADW.

    Swiping definitely needs some improvements.

    Lockscreen widgets in 4.2.x is slightly different, but still has lots of room for improvements.

    -Possibility to make a "backup" in play store for what apps to be installed after factory reset (the most important apps) (Yes, titanium backup and other exist, but would like to have a stock built in function)

    -LED control built in the OS (With different colors)

    -As SHADMOS said: "Swiping notification marks email as read."
    ...
    You can somewhat do this with the volume controls in 4.2.1-4.2.2 with the tablets. But the phones should definitely have this option.

    Backups/syncing of all your apps should have been implemented in ICS. I can say it is getting to be a hassle trying to sync world saves in Minecraft Pocket Edition across multiple devices, having to use third party apps like Dropbox to do so.

    LED control would certainly be a plus.

    I can't say how many times I wish I didn't have to swipe away a notification just to have to open up my email to mark it read.

    Initiating voice would hide the cards that are there for your benefit. You get more information faster the way it is now.

    I think with the video chat, you are referring to Hangouts, which, as long as you have G+, shouldn't be an issue.

    I do agree that there should be a more streamlined messaging app.

    I think the multi-window support is for Samsung devices only. Not sure if they have a patent on it or not.

    Holding back would definitely make it easier to close apps quickly.


    Those are just my thoughts.

    I'd like to see the operating system become more customizable. There is no single best OS. There is only an individuals preference. I'd like to see Android encompass the degree of customization as all of the home replacement apps combined.

    I'd also like to see the Google now menu to be opened for modding so that we can add our own cards, change it's appearance, create our own voice commands, and change how it launches. Google is a brilliant company but nothing is as brilliant as a market constantly competing for improvement. As those improvements are found then Google can implement then into the stock system.

    Was that too ambitious?

    And words that save to the texting dictionary without 3 f*ing clicks! 1 click would be nice!

    I think they need to curate Now without mods for another version. I'd love to see Google continue to crush Siri before they open it up to customization.

    You don't have to follow all those steps now. Just press the mic in the search bar and it goes right there.

    As I mentioned before I think Ubuntu might do a lot of this. And now you will be able to try it out. See if it will or not.
