Your iPhone 5G Wishlist

Made a thread a couple of years ago about the 4G iPhone wishlist... thought I'd try this again.

 

http://forums.wireless.att.com/t5/Apple/Your-iPhone-4G-Wishlist/td-p/1658967

 

Most of those were satisfied by what the iPhone 3Gs and 4 have now... but some still aren't and I still have to add a few.

 

- FM Radio (I know this has been discussed many times, but I would personally love to have one of these built in to my phone as I would use it a lot. It would also cut back on my streaming outside of a wifi zone thus helping out AT&T's network.)

 

- IR Capabilities (this one's a complete long shot, though they do have cases now that have IR on them. It would be nice to be able to use your phone as a remote)

 

- AMOLED Screen (I know that there has been a controversy with this type of screen with stuff like it being hard to see in sunlight but this is pretty much where technology is heading towards and it would be nice if the iPhone were to join the rest of the group)

 

- Flash (or HTML 5 being used more around the web) - (flash is probably not likely to happen with the iPhone as Steve Jobs has already stated numerous times, but I would like to be able to use my phone on most sites with the full enhancement. I'm fine with having HTML 5 as long as it grows.)

 

- 4G Network - (This isn't likely to happen either as AT&T won't be upgrading to their "4G" LTE until 2012... but it's nice to dream of having a faster network. I kind of hated the fact that the HSDPA+ for 14MB down which AT&T will be rolling out by december is not supported on this new iPhone 4.)

 

- LED Light - (this one has been on my list for quite a while since I've had the iPhone for about 2 years now.. It would be nice to have an light that tells you if you have an incoming message or if your service is working.)

 

- 720P output (mini HDMI) - (I was amazed by what the EVO 4G has when it was announced. It would be awesome if you could display video via mini HDMI on your TV.)

 

- 3D - (This one is also a long shot, but it would be a dream if the iPhone did something similar to the Nintendo 3DS.)

 

That's my wish list... a man can dream. What's yours?

Oh, come on. The iPhone 4 hasn't even been released and you're already making an iPhone 5 wishlist!? xD

They should come with a screen protector and a tough case.

My wish would be:

 

No PREORDER

 

No Escalated upgrade

 

No advanced notice, just one day all of the sudden, they become available.

FM....Don't really have a use for FM radio, but isn't there an APP for that?

 

IR Remote....We use our 3GS's as a remote to operate our Tivo units. I don't know how it works exactly, but it works well. Maybe it's RF?

  

LED....Are you referring to that annoying blinking light I see on some phones that blink ALL the time? No thanks. I don't want a beacon on my phone. Especially at night when I'm sleeping. Any little light is annoying. Especially a blinking light.

 

4G....would be nice.

 

Everything else....take it or leave it

 

The way I see it is they aren't going to load up the iPhone with all the latest technology even if they can. It wouldn't leave much room for improvement or desire for the 'Next Generation' iPhone. They improve just enough for us to want it because it's that much better then it's predecessor, but still leaves room for more. It's the nature of the business and we all dive into it with each generation like they discovered gold or something.

Only way we'll see FM radio is if Apple decided to integrate HD radio, with its tagging ability, into the iPhone.  They're not going to put an FM radio in the iPhone unless it can produce a revenue stream.

 

IR is dead...it's long dead, and it's never coming back.  I remember realtors complaining about how the Tilt lacked IR when it came out in 2007(?).

 

I'm glad that you've appointed AMOLED screens where technology is going.  I happen to think you're wrong, for many reasons, at this point.  AMOLED color reproduction, artifact generation, outdoor performance, and screen life are all major issues that need to be addressed with the technology.

 

Flash is NEVER going to happen.  Give it up.

 

I also don't think we'll see LED indicator lights on the iPhone.  Every design decision made with regard to the iPhone has been a fairly conscious one.

 

I wouldn't expect to see mini-HDMI.  Instead, I would more likely see some sort of 30-pin connector to HDMI interface cable.  Battery drain will be an issue.

 

My wish list is that people would stop "imagineering" what they want in the next generation iPhone.  If you want to build the next iPhone, go work for Apple.

Re: Your iPhone 5G Wishlist

So in your opinion, we shouldn't have wish lists just for the heck of it? And thanks for pointing out the obvious genius.... I know most of them are never going to happen... that's why it's called a WISH LIST. Shouldn't have posted in here.

My wish is for people to chill out. Getting hot and bothered about a phone is a little on the weird side. Now if we're talking cars and Chevy vs Ford then yeah maybe. Smiley Wink

1. No FM Radio. Never has, never will be. You really want to add something sucking more power from this device?

2. No IR. It's a PHONE. Not a remote. Get a $10 remote from Wal-Mart and be done with it. Also, old technology and all power consuming.

3. AMOLED --- MAYBE. they're pretty expensive and at 300+ ppi? maybe...

4. Flash- You're kidding right? You did read what Apple said right?

5. 4G- Not for another 2 generations

6. LED light- Why do you need one when you can just press the home screen?

7. See AV kit for iPhone

8. You're getting too greedy

 

Don't get me wrong. Dreams are good. Unrealistic expectations, however, are another.

isnt the ips screen better than amoled? now maybe superamoled, or wait - transparent lcd would make the design interesting.

Re: Your iPhone 5G Wishlist

I want it in WHITE! On Launch Day (or available for preorder)! AND I want a bigger screen - one the size of the EVO.
