Better single cameras!
Over the years I've had many mainstream phones, from Nokia N8, Optimus 2X, Xperia Arc S, S3, Lumia 925, G3, Lumia 1020 and now I'm on Lumia 950. It seems to me that the camera trend started to really pick up in the android sphere around the s6-g4-p8 years but now they all seem to be going for gimmicks like double cameras, better selfies etc. I'm a hobby photographer and occasionally I sell my photos on stock websites and I've gotta say that it would be great to see a phone that beats my Lumia on pure image quality (especially when shooting RAW), to se manufacturers invest in lenses, sensors, ois etc to rival DSLR's. Say what you want about windows phone, but Nokia really dared to try out new things with the camera whilst a lot of modern phones stick to the exact same Sony 12MP sensor that was on a lot of flagships in 2017 (Pixel 2, S8, Mi5s etc).
Foldable displays, like in real life technology already, and has passed the beta tests and examined further down the line. Like the rumoured galaxy x. Its gonna be epic
Shui8, 07 Jan 2018Waiting for p20 and how its triple camera working out. Still want to see what Sony Xperia will... moreSame here, Sony have been lagging behind these few years, they really need to catch up again, hopefully next year...
The return of swappable batteries. I don't mind thicker phones (millimeter or two won't tear my pockets down, really!)
Actually really like the feature of the Meizu Pro 7, a usable screen at the back.
Imagine doing gestures using that screen which makes the screen free of fingerprints and increased ease.
WOW, 07 Jan 2018For Samsung to use QLED instead of OLED to counter the screen burn issue. And for every manufa... moreJapanese researchers have just found a new type of glass that heals itself after shattering, that is, retaining the hardness level of a typical Gorilla Glass.
It was discovered in an accident (researchers' main purpose is to find new types of adhesives).
It's not yet going to be implemented on our devices anytime soon, but this could be the start of high quality glass and also the end of tempered glass.
- Sub 5" screen size with reasonable bezel like Sony.
- Large camera sensor like Nokia Pureview 808, N8, and Lumix CM1 with not too big resolution for larger pixel size. NOT THE SMALLISH SENSOR DUAL CAMERA WITH HUGE RESOLUTION
- 16:9 4K LCD Display rather than unstandardized 18:9 (AMO)LED
- More Cheap Phones with flagship-grade SoC performance (Snapdragon 660, 670, the old 820/1, or even Helio X3*), rather than using SoC with many cores but no high performance cores like Snapdragon 625, 63x, 4xx, or even the mediocre Mediatek 67xx or Helio P series.
- Android with Treble support
Waiting for p20 and how its triple camera working out. Still want to see what Sony Xperia will bring this year, hope a game changer. Yep still believe in Sony, although now i'm a huawei user.
For Samsung to use QLED instead of OLED to counter the screen burn issue. And for every manufacture to adopt graphene for there screen material instead of gorilla glass, to make broken and scratching of screens a thing of the past.
I love my 960 fps, 3d creator, remote play, etc.
No need stupid functions, i wait display microled 4k hdr 120 MHz whith dolby vision support
Needs charging again, 07 Jan 2018Bigger battery Return to 16:9 Standardisation of key location. I remember in cars the contro... moreI have to agree with you on the standardisation. I'll add finger print sensor to that too. I like the thumb position of the Sony implementation. If it must be on the rear, then can we have it at the same position on all phones. At least on andriod.
