    I really don't think people are going to be impressed or enthusiastic about yet another rehash of the user interface or numerous minor tweaks, which while an marginal improvement and helpful, will not make a huge difference to the overall operating system and give the impression that Google has run out of practical ideas on how to develop and improve a next generation Operating System that might not only be useful for phones and tablets, but may in fact be a viable alternative to Windows or Linux Desktop Operating Systems, and not just a fad with barely functional apps that cannot do half of what desktop alternatives can do.

    Google needs to not only tweak Android to out do IOS in terms of useability and features. Google needs to rebuild Android to leave IOS trailing in the dust. When people compare Android and IOS, they need to compare IOS to say an old 8 bit computer like the Sinclair spectrum and Android to the latest 64bit speed demon!

    I want Android to be less restricted as an OS in terms of basic capabilities and upgradeability. This is essential to compete against Full Linux Distro's such as Ubuntu Touch which are being ported to run on Android phones and tablets and may infact feature on an Ubuntu phone with a more substantial hardware specification than current tablets and phones, and frankly comes close to rival entry and mid-range desktop and laptop hardware.

    -A 64 bit kernel to improve performance and scalability of forthcoming hardware.

    -An official Google Android SU root mode which can be either switched on indefinitely (and off as needed) or can be temporarily turned on to install a program or perform an action that would otherwise not be possible during normal operations.

    -The ability to install kernel modules/addons to expand the ability of Android without the need to employ third party root modes.

    -Added features to improve interoperability of Android devices with Windows and Linux platforms and accessories including storage.

    -Auto mount of physically connected or wirelessly connected storage including USB devices.

    -Improved facilities to manage storage including Partitioning, Formatting or creation of Volumes.

    -The ability to create a personal cloud on a home computer and store Android data in this instead of using third party services.

    -The ability to configure and define cloud services for an account, such that you might have multiple distinct calendars or instances of any cloud based feature per account rather than needing to create multiple accounts with a limit of one instance of a feature.

    -The ability to store personal data locally i.e. without syncing, any personal data or to disable syncing for any or all apps or specific accounts.

    -The ability to import from and export to an open and non-proprietary format all personal data, and convert to other formats to allow for import into other platforms.

    I would also like to see these features included sooner rather than drip fed to consumers.

    Google is perfectly capable of providing resources to implement this with a minimum of delay, particularly as much of what present in Android is based on Linux, is developed by the community and is freely available to any other Linux Distro.

    Frankly if Google doesn't radically improve Android, I am very likely to move to an Alternative such as Ubuntu sooner rather than later!

    This. Some are more likely than others, but there are some very good ideas right here.

    You can't make it too open or there will be tons of warranty battles when people **** stuff up. Ubuntu is free so anything goes. Android is paid for with the phone so there has to be some limitations

    Being able to switch on/off 3G/wifi without having to unlock the phone would be nice to overcome the 'locked out because I need to login to my google to unlock phone but I have no internet connection'-problem.

    you can do this by using power control app and lock screen widget.
    I use it all the time. Configure power control to have the toggle you want and add it to the lock screen.

    A very technical update in your mind, I don't really expect many of these to appear (although I myself would like a lot of these) as Android can't be looked at as something for geeks.

    I'm not sure what the iPhone has as I've never had one nor want one. But if you are referring to the ability to locate, alarm, and remote wipe, they have incorporated this feature. Goto setting>security>device administrator and check android device manager. Login to https://www.Google.com/android/devicemanager to locate,remote wipe, or turn on alarm.

    UI overhaul. The black robotic look is outdated and not pleasant to look at.

    Google is on to something with the white card based system and cleaner typography. They need to make this the predominant aspect of Kitkat's look.

    Here is what I want:

    -New/refresh UI
    -Faster Google beam
    -Battery improvement
    -Improve notification setting
    -Track my Android option
    -More Google Now options

    Honestly I just want a really nice improvement on the UI. I'm really hoping for that and of course anything new that would like to add.

    Good point, some recent phones have had a soft back. I don't really like the feel of a soft phone, so I want hardware.
    And I know its not an actual device yet. The name was just announced, it won't be n actual device for a couple of months.

    I think just keep optimizing code. Improve reliability, responsiveness, power conservation. Android seems to get sluggish after many months requiring factory reset. I hear 4.3 fixed some of that continue on that line. Also add multi screen support. Flashy features can be added as separate apps.

    -Refresh UI: I too like the look of the Google Now Cards
    -Use google voice as default sms/mms app: Something similar to imessage would be great. Having the ability to compose/reply to sms/mms via tablet or pc would be a great benefit and keep everything tightly knit.
    -Ability to print to any printer without paying for an app. I want to be able to open in a document in Dropbox and print it to my home printer. Now I have to open the Brother iPrint app, find the document, select my printer, then print. Too many steps when it could be so much easier.

    No for whatever reason this printer does not play nice with google. I have never been able to get the printer to connect to my google account. I've tried everything I know how but it just doesn't go through, unfortunately.
