There's qutie a few to list, but on launch the major issues were:
1) 24hz playback was broken on the xbone. Audio will regularly skip or lag behind, no amount of lipsync compensation will fix it.
2) For interlaced content (1080i), the xbone de-interlaces properly but then converts a 50p video into 60p which can cause judder.
3) Stuttering video issues when you try and skip forward too quickly.
The first 2 issues are now fixed. But the stuttering video bug is still happening to users. Currently the biggest problem for the xbone is that it cannot pass-through Atmos and DTS:X properly while the PS4 does it without batting an eye. Weird yes? Because all the damn thing needs to do is bitstream the data over for decoding, but no, MS needs to make it complicated.
Yes, yes, perhaps MS has learned its mistakes and the Xbone S will have no issues from the get go. But seriously, this is microsoft we're talking about. They've always broken things that wasn't broken in their history (look at Win98 to WinME, look at XP to Vista, look at 7 to 8, look at Xbox 360 to Xbox One). It wouldn't surprise me a single bit if they screw something up as simple as a proper HDCP 2.2 handshake or sending the correct HDR metadata. It wouldn't surprise me if the break 24hz playback again either.
