I switched from an S4 to Lumia 925, and it's become less terrible.. though WP8.1 is my last bet

Some of you may have read my first post 'I switched from and S4 to a Lumia 925, and it's terible', and my main complaints were Micro$ofts Windows Phone OS. But after a few months of getting over the lack of features, apps, and customization (And also SOME satisfaction after being able to get the OLD M$ Youtube app blocked by google to work), I've come to like WP for it's fluid iOS-like perfomance and particularly it's consistency with all the few apps (that's rarely updated) M$ managed to get by sending bulging brown envelopes to developers.

I will also quickly point some extra functionalities i enjoy on Windows phone; One is the keyboard, i love it, i haven't made one mistype when texting with this keyboard, but i made numerous on the S4, maybe it's just the way the 925 is designed for the way i hold it, but the keyboard is simply wonderful. ALSO i love the OS font, it's simple and elegant at the same time.

But even though i love all these functions in Windows Phone, it's lacks many features, and i can't help but think M$ will change very less in the much awaited (no) WP8.1. From what i've seen every single WP update looks the same. Before i write an essay, i will list my most important changes that must be implemented in WP8.1 in order for me to stay with WP;

Colour on Black and Text on Black MUST change.

It seems Elegant at first, but it really really does get depressing and boring, M$ must add the ability to set backgrounds on the homecreen. The metro icons on wallpaper looks really beautiful on Windows 8.1. MS could also let the homecreen background follow you into certain core apps like the people app, music etc..

All these current UI makes the OS look like it's still in beta mode

See how irritating that is, i just wasted space on this post FOR ABSOLUTE NO REASON AT ALL. Let me give you a scene; I'm at the People app, and i want to find a contact.. you know what, a picture speaks a thousand words.

LOOK at how big that People text is? And it's big for ABSOLUTE NO REASON AT ALL, it's unnecessary and stupid. It's obvious that in apps like this you need SPACE to view more CONTENT (this also goes for the music app aswell).

We're not blind. This what i think its Microsofts intention with this design right here: "THIS IS THE PEOPLES APP, LOOK AT THE TITLE, PEOPLES APP LOOK AT IT, LOOK AT IT!!, you want to find a contact to make an urgent call? NO, LOOK AT THE TITLE, LOOK AT IT!!!!!!".

WP 8.1 better have a design overhaul over all these apps, it'd be MUCH MUCH more convenient if it was designed a like this; Small texts, a lot more viewing content.

ps (i love the Bing Sport and news apps)

Search button and bing

Im quite sure Microsoft will bring the unified search that brings out your files, music, videos and web results in one search like on Windows 8.1, and also remove the depressing text on black UI results there aswell.

if search appeared like this on my Lumia 925, i'd use bing much much more.
