The future looks so bright for Windows Phone especially with Universal Windows Apps! My windows Phone 8.1 review as follows:

The long awaited feature "Notification Center" , Quick toggles for Wifi, Airplane Mode, etc., ( I wish MS would let OEMs add more toggles like Android if they need to , like torch light) Voice assistant Cortana, Separate volume control for Media/App, Ringtone,etc., excellent word-flow key board ( again the keys should be squarish rather than vertically rectangle in my opinion because when you swipe/tap, your fingers cover more area horizontally than vertically..point to MS research team again.Typos are very minimal in iPhone keyboard in my experience) . IE 11 is wow..simply awesome now. Addition of Bluetooth 4.0 LE has opened doors to many fitness gadgets take advantage of windows phone platform. I admit most of these are "catch up" features compared to other mobile platform, hope it's time for Windows dev team to take pioneer roles now on.Good luck!
