We talk about the existing handsets out there, but when you really look closely at all the handsets, there's weaknesses in all of them. How about we dream up our perfect device? My phone would look like this: Body would be pretty much like the Lumia series but with further enhancements. Matte Polycarbonate with Gorilla Glass. It should NOT be thin like the iPhone 5. It should have some heft, thickness, strength and durability without being TOO heavy yet still pack in a lot of internals. Screen would measure at 4.7 inches, 16x9 aspect ratio. I'd go with the IGZO display tech that the iPhone 5 is using. CPU/GPU should be something like the latest Exynos on the Galaxy S3. Front-facing camera would be 2 megapixels and be able to take 720p video or whatever lower quality you select. 8 megapixel Camera with dual-flash or any other high intensity LED config, along with a very large lens, completely within the body of the phone. No protruding cameras. They make me sick. Metal buttons along the side should be a power button on the side with a camera shutter button opposite a volume rocker and physical mute switch. Once again, they must be metal. LARGE speakers at the bottom surrounding the data/charge port. No viewable grilles but metal holes with grilles behind them like the iPhone 5. This will be next to the 3.5 mm headphone jack. No physical or capacitive buttons on the face of the phone. It should be exactly as Android 4.0 has it. Back, home and multitasking on-screen buttons. The OS would be a lightweight mix of iOS and Android. It would essentially be OSX on a phone, where you can do everything OSX does and still have the App Store as well along with the desktop features of Android such as a filesystem, etc. The design philosophy would be a matured Android Holo with only the useful elements of iOS thrown in. Basically I want the speed of iOS, the functionality of Android, and the low resource usage of WP. Expandable storage would be available as well through an SD slot that is paired along with the SIM slot, allowing up to 64 GB of extra storage. I'd put that on the top of the phone by itself. Starts with 32 GB of memory, has all the sensors needed, but most of all, it needs WiFi that is insanely powerful so that you don't use data if you live in a big house. Wifi should be as potent as the cellular radio. Instead of NFC, there needs to be a universal standard for close-proximity info transfer, such as Bluetooth 5.0. For privacy purposes, that radio will be completely controlled by the user and be activated only on a per-session basis. Charging would be optionally wireless and the data/charging port would be a Micro-USB 3.0 connector. The battery will be something along the lines of 3,000 MaH and ensure about 8 hours of on screen time.
