    What hardware feature do you most want for the iPhone that isn't currently available for the iPhone or iPhone 3G?

    Mine is a better camera... A 2 megapixel camera just isn't good enough. The camera on the iPhone is barely noticeable so would it kill apple to make it at least 3 megapixels?

    What I'd like best are game controls. Just a d-pad would be good enough.

    Yup, slightly higher megapixel camera with an LED light would be great. I've been amazed how many times I need to use the LED from my mobile phone to find something in the dark, here's hoping the front screen will be good enough as a torch.

    lol... ever since i bought a crappy phone (that doesnt have an LED light) to hold me over until the 3G iPhone comes out, it really is a pain in the ass at night now to walk blindly in the dark.


    Some things I would like to see is a aluminum backing again, larger storage (32gb would be PERFECT for me), and a better screen (come on QVGA?)

    Heres something different.

    TOP 5 Hardware/Software Upgrades Apple should be thinking about!

    Hardware upgrades
    1. Flash!!! Able to keep it on as well
    2. Camera can twist to the front for video conferencing.
    3. Fingerprint lock instead of sliding it. More secure and can make your phone not accessible from anyone but you. Also replaces the lock key number
    4. Removable battery on the back.
    5. Quicker accelerometer( usually you can tell when its slow when you have it vertical and it takes a few seconds to change. nothing bad but could improve or could be something else im not sure entirely with the accelerometer)

    Software upgrades
    1. MMS!!! i cant send any nudes to my friends because of mms!!! lol just kidding
    2. Video recording to send onto youtube. i have enough trouble posting videos on youtube or even videotaping
    3. Picture editing( crop out heads like photo bombers)
    4. Using accelerometer to tilt the keyboard when using sms because we all know its alot easier to text when its horizontal
    5. Turning on/off 3g connectivity by touching the top bars and also tilting your phone horizontal on the home page and turning all your apps sideways.

    No. 1 would be increased storage. I'm hoping a 32GB chip that fits where it needs to comes out later this year. That would mean my wait for the 64GB model could start counting down. :)

    I do like the idea of an LED on the phone. There's not much room on the top of mine, but maybe they could make a circular one around the headphone jack?

    I could really not care less about the camera stuff. They'll obviously get up in the megapixel dept. at some point, but it looks darn good to me. I also don't have much of a desire for a camera on the front. Just guess that your picture is good and snap a few. Delete the crappy ones. My rants against video calls on here are legen (wait for it) dary.

    For the person who suggested a game controller pad, that would be best as some sort of add-on connected to the dock connector. Apple isn't going to ugly up the phone with a big D-pad just for a few games. I don't know if the SDK would allow anything like that yet, but that is the best option for such a purpose. I think the deal is probably if you need a D-pad, you probably need a DS or PSP.

    For those asking for a LED for something else than the camera should check the flashlight application...

    http://code.google.com/p/flashlight-iphone/

    it's not great, but probably lights a room better than a single LED.

    There is nothing I really want besides a glowing Apple logo on the back and an indicator light.

    I would love to have an indicator light to the left of the receiver that blinks blue when I have a missed call or message and other colors for other things.

    Having flash, more megapixels, front camera all of that stuff are just bonus'. I don't really want those things.

    That'd be awesome. I'm hoping that there will be an aftermarket option available as I refuse to put covers on my phone, so I'm sure it will be scratched up in days.

    Number one for myself is a subtle led light on the front hidden like the sensors are. Something just like the subtle white glow on a macbook when its sleeping. It would slowly blink when you have a new voicemail or text message. That my friends would be sweet.

    Camera flash, or at least an LED.

    Followed by a better lens assembly for the camera.

    Followed by a nicer looking back case.
