    I wanted to show you guys my iPhone 5 mockup.

    Features
    - Slightly larger display, but nothing horrendous like the Samsung Note.
    - Curvier back, with one piece aluminium.
    - Thunderbolt Connector
    - 1GB RAM
    - Quad Core A6 Processor??? :p
    - Higher res Retina display (larger screen + Retina = more pixels)
    EDIT
    - In cell technology for LCD, thinner overall form.

    Why do people keep thinking the next iPhone will always be credit card thin? The advancements in chip technologies are not even close to half the current thickness...

    I like:
    *Aluminum back (like the 1st Gen)
    *1GB RAM

    Those are very plausible and quite possibly the next thing

    Don't like and won't happen anytime soon:
    *Note form factor
    *Thunderbolt


    Pluasible and likely
    A6 Quad Core, but Dual Core is much more likely

    It will be thinner than the 4S though, in cell LCD technology as well as a larger area to distribute the parts considering the slightly larger size.

    You mean the size of the Note? No, I don't want that either. That's what the iPad is for :p

    Thunderbolt would be great because it would give a headstart to the connector and also make it easier to connect expansion devices as well. Displays, cameras, keyboards, drives, the possibilities are endless.

    Have you not learned anything on Apple? They don't jump immediately towards a new technology. There may be a thinner LCD tech, but I am sure Apple won't use it just yet. They will until they can customize it to fit their needs.

    The overall Note form factor. After all, Apple is suing because Samsung makes stuff "that looks like iStuff"; I doubt Apple wants the opposite to happen.

    That's why USB 3.0 is there as well...

    Thinner and LTE don't go together; see LTE enabled iPad. Agreed with the other two.

    I like the look, but you've lost my respect with your crude comment:

    "nothing horrendous like the Samsung Note".

    Why not say "nothing as large" ?

    Are you that insecure, you've got to bash the other brand instead of taking an intelligent approach?

    This is _exactly_ why Apples fans are so polarizing. Instead of a respectful conversation it's all about insults. But only if they go one way.

    Apple lovers can violate forum rules, call troll, and bad mouth other products with immunity.

    The moment they get push back & insults in return they wail like children.

    Easily the most obnoxious smart phone ever made.

    Can't wait to see the Note 2...It will set new standards in garish, gaudiness.

    The internet is full of "obnoxious phone" comedy.

    Ladies & kids that like diminutive iPhones.

    I see a rather even mix of each being used by those that do a lot of calling and texting. For tasks that smartphones do best any display between 4.3" & 4.8" improves the experience dramatically. Less scrolling on the web & in email, the standard size adopted by the majority of iPhone competitors is one of their best advantages.

    People who don't want to walk around looking like tools with their Bluetooth headset always on.

    LTE devices are pretty thin - are you sure the LTE iPad is thicker because of LTE, or a larger battery to support the screen?

    Headphones, my friend. Theres nothing better than listing to your music, answer a call, and then shooting out a text, setting a reminder for yourself, and then getting back to your tunes, all from your headphones.

    Actually three things:

    Screen
    Power hungry LTE chip
    Quad Core GPU

    I find the screen on the iPhone 4S just as easy to use as my 7" Fire with Jelly Bean Android installed.

    Apple does not play the catch up game if one just knows their history. They take their sweet time with technology, and never play the silly catch up games that some like to play.

    I still hold a phone to my ears to communicate. I never text nor play games/movies on a cell phone. I have a Computer/LCD TV for entertainment. I may have to ask, who watches movies on a 4.5 inch screen ? That is silly. :D

    Yep. Apple is always ahead, despite how it may seem.

    I agree, doing anything serious on a phone is something I would never do. I have my Mac for that :p

    Watching movies would also be stupid on a cheap android, but more sensible on an iPhone or iPad.
