Default The next phones :)

Speculation is rife about the new iPhones having OLED based screens (plastic, apparently, for some reason), and new Pixel phones being waterproof or water resistant.

Galaxy phones are supposed to have FP reader on the back and an Iris scanner something or other on the front.

No modular devices apparently from Moto.

So on and so forth. Figured we could start a chat about the new "what's next", while staying rooted in reality.

Personally, here is what I am expecting:
  • More storage options, starting at 32/64 GB as the base
  • Improved ingress protection from dust and water
  • HOPEFULLY wireless charging coming back to the fore
  • Better battery life in lieu of thinness
  • Less bezel on flagships (like iPhone and Pixel devices)
  • Better assistants and better AI
  • Deeper VR integration

This is besides the usual stuff.

What are you fine folks expecting? And anyone else hear of something new or awesome that's supposed to come out this year?

My considerations are:

Camera
Dual-sim
Battery life

The rest is not really important, but a nice screen is a big plus. Just don't want it to be too big, 5" is the max I'd buy.

would love to have this:
https://light.co/
integrated into my next phone (its a multi sensor {16} camera array that is as slim as a phone but rivals {arguably} DLSR quality), because at some point you just need more surface area if you want better photos.

Also, forget VR for a sec, can we get Apple device for AR?
(vr has high req for performance .. AR can have lower bar, right now the "air" smells like pre-ipad windows tablet time... when no one got it right + high performance gpu was never Apple's cup of tea and Tim hinted on AR ... and the Mac isn't been invested in {or why else is Microsoft's Surface line looks like new Apple products?} iPad sales are taking a nose dive............. time for game changer "next iphone" .. wearable, AR, linked with bunch of services {to get people buying into more Apple services, kind of like when you get Amazon Prime to watch an Amazon made TV show .. regardless of delivery perks, get AR for AR and Apple be like "we have this many users on paid icloud" - whatever makes their boat float})

Would also love iPhone Pro, just about 200% the thickness and 150% the weight, change? more battery, omg I now carry a 3300mAh battary + short 3" cable in my front pocket 24/7 and use it about 4/5 of days its with me (which is every workday and half the wknd) {am on iPhone 6s, yes that battery case could work but ... can we address the cause rather than the symptom?}




but whats really going to happen is probably added support for the iPad Pro's pencil because no one wants or asked for that
kind of like the touch bar or as I call it "the time to bind esc to caps-lock and never look back" invention.

All I need is good camera, good battery life, good performance, and a good screen. Not really seeing things progressing much from those basics.

tbh, especially considering the high levels of lemons that the world of have seen in the last few years.
I am soooo not going to upgrade my phone until it dies on me or becomes unreliable.
Yeah sure battery isn't where I want it to be but im both used to the way it works right now AND dont have much faith about future device reliability.

(phone wise I had a bad S2*2/s4*4, note1*1/nexus5*2, Ericcson K800*1)
(bad: MSI laptop, Lenovo laptop(x201), LG display (ultrafine 5k), 15"MBP2010, Palm Pilot folding keyboard*5{!},M$ Multi Media Keyboard*3, PS1 controller, xbox 360 (ROD), everything I ever bought from Razer died early - like six different products, dell xps13, some ram by corsair and SSD by OCZ and I am sure that there are more that I can't think of now.)

Each one with its own thing... finally have a reliable phone, yeah, its a keeper.

My iPhone 6S are so abused with bent motherboards and am on the 7th screen on one and maybe 4th on the other. I don't want another smart phone unless it is encased in some nuclear winter protection bunker materials and is lighter than my car keys.

Seriously, these smart phones are so iffy, it is appalling.

I also second the better battery life motion.

What the hell? Are you spiking your phone on the ground after scoring a touch down? Or using it as a tennis ball?

I fully expect my phone to fall and shatter at some point but haven't had that problem for any of my phones to this point.

I've had 2 accidents. I'm on my third screen, meaning I've only broken 2. I work at a stone mill, these kinds of things happen, and Otterboxes are lame. I had a Life Proof case for a week, it was absurd on my 6s+.

My requirements are simple:

5 inch screen
large battery (3000mAH or higher)
good camera preferably with manual control
cheap

For the time being there no other phone manufacturer fits the bill but Xiaomi. Mi4 that I'm using fits so well I don't think of buying other phone unless it broke down. Will buy Xiaomi again.

Xiaomi sure is a Underdog, netherless a lot of people buying them, so obviously they aren't bad, especially for the price they're asking for them.

As for the topic, i'd say higher batteryruntime, expandable memory.

5.5-6.25" screen
1080p or higher resolution
Something faster than the new A9
4GB+ RAM
Expandable storage
Good battery
Good camera

Perhaps a return of the physical keyboard? Nonetheless, I am happy with my Nexus 6P and don't plan on upgrading unless the aforementioned happens.

I'm waiting for a Surface Phone.....
It'll be such a game changer....

with specs like:

latest snapdragon processor (at the time of this writing)
plenty of storage
Lots of ram
top line GPU

And then such desirable and exclusive features in windows 10 such as:
-Live Tiles!
-Continuum!
-Cortana (wait that's on other platforms...)
-Office suite (wait that's on other platforms too....)
-Universal windows apps (which isn't as universal as it sounds...)
-Top notch windows integration (which honestly isn't any different than ive seen for other platforms)

In windows land this phone is such a game changer and its coming soon* (*where soon doesn't exactly have a date or timeframe. and if it does, you add one year to it)

In all seriousness, I just waiting for a good price for an iPhone 6S at least hopefully (well more likely I'm just waiting till I have enough money to get an iPhone.....whichever model that would be when I finally have that money)

I admit I'll probably just get the iPhone 8 when it's out, assuming it's a new phone and not another omg omg omg refresh. My 6 works great and am in no rush to start paying another 2 phones off (wife, too). Plus, I hate adapters, and like just being able to plug my headphones in like I do with everything else in the world that supports headphones.

An always on screen, smaller maybe e-ink or just no backlighting for battery life, for notifications, clock ect... would be nice.

So we dont have to unlock the screen all the time.

That's been done, check Yota Phone. The concept is nice, not sure about the actual device though.

Myself, I've gone for a smartwatch to reduce distractions by phone. I've set my watch to notify me of important things, others are not synced to it.

I know but their phones are outdated. Yota 3 due out next summer/fall...

Top of the line phones should have dual screens.

To me its like going back to pocket watches. I cant stand wristwatches.

I've got the Nexus 6p and that will do me for at least another 12 months. 1440p screen, good camera, 4K video, Android Nougat and security updates for at least another 12 months. Pixel is waaay overpriced for what it adds and just look at all the issues users are having Will never have an iPhone as I won't pay the Apple tax but I do like my wife's hand me down iPads. I've just inherited her Air 2 as she's moved onto the Pro
