I like a lot the iPhone series and admire the innovation. But I'll stick with my Galaxy Nexus for now. I'll wait for the next iPhone or else I'll go for Galaxy S4 : )

Let's put a TM on 12MP camera and sue EVERYONE else who uses it. Even Canon!

Okay jokes aside, they need to go BIG or not at all. I disagree with next iPhone having bigger screen. 4~4,2" is just right, bigger screens are too battery hungry. I have 4,2" Arc S and it's size is great for every day.
If you want a bigger screen, there's plenty of other options, why go with iPhone then?

A phone that has 1GB of ram and dual core plus 4 inches is just perfect for gaming, movies, etc. No to mention its not bulky!"

Apple made several mistakes:

1. No MicroSD slot. People would love to put their music in the SD card and not on the phone (reserved for 1gb+ apps perhaps?)
2. Bluetooth (un)sharing. You can only use its bluetooth for devices such as wireless headset.
3. No Flash player. We all know its dying but not yet! so why kill it when its still used worldwide?
4. USB on the go is one of the reasons why people switch to android, They can easily put files that they need. What apple did was iTunes.
5. Non-Removable battery (not an issue for me though. Since i used ip4, i dont have problems with my can last 1 1/2 day (with heavy data usage/games/music)). People would want a fast solution to a stuck phone. Just remove the battery.

Everything else is good. If apple decides to give us these options, then iPhone is the best phone.

Its not only apple, its all the mobile companies, there isnt anything so big to invent anymore, or there might but the tech isnt ready now.

Next revolutionary things comes from somewhere else than phones, maybe rumoured watch? Or maybe iTV.

They only have dual core chip and 1GB of ram but hey they run all apps smoothly just like any top android devices out there. So why would they need higher CPU and Ram for? I'm sure with dual core and 1GB of ram, all android phones will stuff up big time with heavy apps like Asphalt 7...

Putting more core and more ram doesn't mean anything in real life performance. I'm using HTC One now but I must say, no matter how many of you out there hating Apple, they are still doing a very good job and ofc, better than any of you who only know how to say bad thing about them.

Apple users buy the brand name, not the features or any kind in their devices.

Have u thought for a moment that it may be developer's mistake for not optimising game properly not phone's purse. I can show you hundreds of videos where high demand games are running smoothly over android. It's all about optimising even I can show you asphalt 7 running in a 150 bucks lumia 520 with adreno. U cant optimize. Properly on android coz of so many models and oems.

If u wanna compare os then compare them related tofeatures and apps customizability. ios fails miserably to android except in apps where they tie

apple remains the best. Others may have too much of this, more of that but iphones are ideal and consistent in quality and user experience. So if u're looking to have a TV as mobile phone, why not hang ur LCD/plasma TVs on ur neck like Flavour Flav uses his wall clock.
All I ask more of Apple is 'normal bluetooth sharing' of media items (images, audio, video), documents,...even if it just with apple devices, then file manager app, and also serve as a mobile memory drive that can access files and folders when plugged to any pc ....but that 's kinda asking too much.

thanks as we anticipate this in the next upgrade.

The days of seeing anything revolutionary from apple are long gone.

That said... We owe them a lot for developing the iPhone... Nokia would still be building symbian n82 type phones otherwise.
