    A bigger screen, a bigger screen, a bigger screen, remove Siri, and oh, you guessed it, a bigger screen.

    iPhone + bigger screen - Siri = Android phone

    You obviously don't need an iPhone;)

    Oh yeah, what a coincidence, I'm ditching my iPhone after owning the 3, 3GS and 4 after the disgrace that was the 4S and getting an Android.

    I'm hoping the 4G chips are ready by then. Tabbed browsing is also something I'm looking forward to, but that can just simply come in an ios update. Come to think of it, I would love love love some kind of sbsettings implementation as well, which is also just an ios update. I really don't think there is much else that can be added that I will actually use.

    Hardware:
    A6 processor
    3.7" screen (any bigger doesn't make ergonomic sense)
    1gb of Ram
    12MP camera and 1.3MP front facing camera
    128gb option (discontinue 8gb and 16gb)
    Greater battery capacity. The manufacturer that manages to get 3000mah+ out of a standard sized cell phone battery could potentially become king :eek:

    Software:
    Interchangeable theme's - 4 or 5 hand picked. (ex. Noki-HD)
    Short cuts/toggles on home screen - wifi, bluetooth, data etc etc etc
    Unlimited icons per folder vs 12 limit currently
    Ability to speed up built in animations similar to how fakeclockup does it for jailbroken devices.
    Ability to use device as a USB flash drive with plug and play functionality
    True smart dialing functionality
    Customizable keyboard colors and theme's

    Was going to say, wireless charging. That would be ground breaking...

    Some phones already have it, it would not be 'ground-breaking'.

    How far away from the "base" can you be though? If it is something where it has to be set on some sort of pad, then it is useless.

    One thing I'd like is for the home button to not be a physical button anymore. That was one thing I did like on the Samsung Galaxy S II. That could also double for a notification light. I know there are LED notifications now on the camera flash, but 9/10 my phone is face up, so this is not really useful.

    He means it would be revolutionary. Apple always manages to take 5 year old tech. and make it the greatest new thing under the sun. haha I still buy it tho.

    Yeah! Better! You should write Tim Cook and tell him to get the programmers to hit the BETTER button.

    Honestly, FaceTime wasn't revolutionary :/ This certainly won't be for me, unless they can make it super-efficient... but the technology isn't here nor do I see the patents to allow for this.
