Ive been using cell phones ever since the bag phones of days gone by. Ive had good cell phones, bad cell phones, mediocre cell phones. Before I got a 4S, I had an HTC Incredible for nearly two years. Both phones were adequate in many ways, and I dont think one was better than the other, overall. But, if I were in charge of designing the next round of iPhones, heres what Id want in the product: 1. Significantly improved telephone features, in terms of transceiving voice calls. Some of this is dependent upon ones network and ones proximity to cell towers, but some of it is dependent upon cell phone circuitry, speakers, microphones, et cetera. I dont think enough attention is paid to the phone part of modern cell phones. 2. A 4 screen one can see and read in bright daylight. No more b.s., no more excuses. I have screens on the instruments on my boat I can see in bright sunlight without any trouble. 3. A durable enclosure for the cell phones innards so one doesnt feel the necessity to go out and buy, as I did, a Griffin Survivor, to protect the phone if I happen to drop it. That means a shatterproof, crackproof screen, too. 4. A removable, replaceable back that allows use of much larger batteries. 5. An easy way, without jailbreaking, to get access to the phones file system, and a file system that makes sense, with, you know, folders you can access, create, eliminate directly. I dont really care whether the next iteration of the iPhone has a 12, 16 or 20 megapixel camera, since I dont use the camera in my iPhone 4s. I also dont care if there are 500,000 more apps coming for the iPhone. Ive got a couple dozen apps on my phone, and I havent added any for at least a month. When I first got my iPhone, I downloaded and tried out bunches of apps, and then I deleted them because they were silly, or garbage, or both. I know I differ from many here, in that I first view the iPhone as a portable phone and as an instrument with which to retrieve and send emails to clients and friends. I like the iPhone quite a bit, I just wish more effort was spent on making it a better phone and less on making it an itty-bitty computer. Rant off.
