    1. A "Clear All" button for Recent Apps.

    2. Dedicated and simple Bluetooth file sharing app.

    3. Show battery percentage from the notification bar.

    4. Better keyboard, Gesture Typing support for more languages.

    5. Immersive Mode for all apps (Or at least all Google apps.

    6. Option for changing notification LED color and notification bar icons color.

    7. Option for double-app multitasking. (Opening 2 apps on the same screen like in Samsung Galaxy phones.)

    That's all, they're not big updates for 4.5, but if they'll jump directly to Key Lime Pie then I highly want a completely new UI.

    What do you think?

    Thank you, but I honestly wanted everything to be preloaded and wouldn't need to install 3rd party apps to do the tasks for such things. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I would like 1,2,3,6,7.
    I don't really want a better keyboard, I love this one over any I've already used, except blackberry virtual keyboard.

    And right now, all I want for 4.5 is stability
    Just like 4.3...
    Kitkat has too many bugs

    How about an OS that shows some progress on battery life? It's hit or miss anymore. A new UI is highly agreeable.

    It would be nice if the white design of kitkat could become completed. They could color the volume interface and also the slide menu buttons in white.
    Moreover the whole settings have to get a redesign. And I wanna have a complete new notification drawer maybe with Google now integration and some other useful stuff.

    Why would it be KLP? Kit Kat already used the letter K

    Hardly. I personally think it needs to be lightened up. The depressing dark theme is a bit old by now.

    Dark theme where? Maybe in the settings, but outside of that (at least on stock Android) the dark theme is gone. Launcher, nav, and status bars are transparent.

    Is the Notification shade still basically Black?

    What about pop-up dialogs, etc.

    I want a "complete" UI overhaul personally. Something New, clean and fresh. I'd like to see a "Complete" User Interface resize option...Globally speaking, Menu's, Notification bar icons, etc. I want smaller.

    Most importantly, I want it to work, Getting sick and tired of the sub par OS updates they have been pushing out...It's garbage..I know not for everyone, But just about every day there is a new thread created with folks complaining about something they broke with recent updates. I wouldn't be surprised if 4.4.3 or even 4.5 is an update to fix what they broke pushing out the 4.4.2 KK update to the devices laid out a few weeks back. Furthermore, If that is the case, I sure as heck hope they push THAT update through to ALL the devices that got updated to 4.4. "IMO", Google has been pushing out subpar product with their OS updates.

    Very much agree with #1. 2-6 aren't high on my priority list, but that's subjective. #7 would be really nice for the tablets...not so much for the N5 - not enough screen real-estate.

    I'd also like to see the Settings menu reset to the Jelly Bean style for tablets - it looks terrible on the bigger screen. That's really the only thing I thought was a step backward from Jelly Bean to KitKat.

    Eh, I disagree. Maybe there are issues with non-Nexus devices, but my N5 has been great. To me, if there are issues with Samsung, HTC, etc., devices, that's more on the manufacturers and their OS overlays than on Android itself.
