1 Killer Feature that iPhone 5S should have to sell millions

Recently, Blackberry released the Z10 with the Timeshift feature, which allows user to capture the "perfect" moment. Now, HTC One also comes with the same feature on their new flagship phone. I really hope Apple will add this feature on their future iPhones, it'll definitely help them sell tons of iPhones easily..

An Apple Logo. It will sell millions. Problem solved!

While that seems like a neat feature, I'm pretty sure the next iPhone will sell millions without it.

This and the Optimus G's new VR panorama need to become new industry standards.

Whilst its a nice feature, it wont sell millions of phones and the manufacturers know this. Overall the mass market public seems to think the quality of a camera is simply measured in the number of megapixels the camera has (which is obviously complete tosh) its a shame but putting a crap quality 15MP sensor in an iPhone and giving it a fancy name would most likely create more sales than something genuinely useful like this.

Thats my cynical rant for the day

I agree, it really winds me up that people judge a camera by the megapixel count.
In the camera shop, the shop assistant kept telling me to get a camera that was the same price as the one I wanted, but because it had more megapixels. Judging by the online reviews, and side by side comparisons, the one with LESS megapixels, took waaay better shots, due to a way larger sensor!

How about a bigger/better display and a revampled iOS?

Now that would be killer.

I'm pretty sure Apple will sell millions of iPhones regardless. Happens every time.

Every competitor try to out-feature the next guy, except many times it's half-baked, bug- ridden, difficult to use eventually pushed to the novelty shelf. Yawn.

yes, they need to drop the MP's to like 5, which would make better low light and noise free photos. Who needs to print posters anyway?

How is this any different than the burst mode on various Galaxy phones?

Such trivial features won't make the iPhone sell millions

I think most of the things Apple could do to improve things are software, but the iPhone 5 will get the same software. In terms of hardware I think the 5S's killer feature would be to have a single version for all US carriers that could do simultaneous voice and data on all of them as well.

There are iOS apps, some free, that do all of those things.

I really do think Blackberry have done a great job with the 'past' feature on BB10.

You can take photos while shooting video in the native Camera app on an iPhone 5.

Apple is probably working on photosphere even as we speak.
