We need better Hardware to support OpenCL oder C++AMP. The current WP8 hardware has only Feature Level 9_3 support. For OpenCL/C++AMP/DirectCompute you will need much better Hardware (Qualcomm doesn't have one yet). If Windows Phone supported options like PowerVR (used in iPhone and iPad), the support would be possible.
High performance Camera lenses would become reality.
They won't fix this.
If it comes to performance, WPF and Silverlight are not the tool you are looking for.

It’s great to see that XAML for Live Tiles is so highly requested!
In Windows 10, we created Adaptive Tile Notifications, which partially addresses this issue. Adaptive is a lightweight XML way to define your tile notification’s appearance. It isn’t as powerful as XAML, and it isn’t animated, but it’s a step in the right direction. The MSN Weather app uses Adaptive to create their rich and beautiful live tile.

In the future, we’ll definitely look at how we can make Live Tiles even better, potentially by supporting XAML. There are performance and other implementation issues, but we definitely understand the need for it.
Andrew – Windows Notifications
Needed. Currently, there are Live Tiles for 1st party apps (people, Xbox, etc.) but third party apps are just a template where we can provide data. This is pretty dump in my opinion. Even the counter for notifications on the tile for third party apps (small circle with a number) makes my app look amateurish because first party apps can use big fonts with animated numbers. On iOS and Android, third party apps have a similar look and feel as first party apps. Only in Windows Phone, Microsoft has decided to make third party app developers look bad.
