Sony Ultra (XZ Ultra Premium the name just gives goosebumps)
LG G Pro with stylus (true note competitor)
Htc sensation and wildfire s. Those phones were just superb. The build quality, the sense ui, the sturdiness was just excellent.
Definitely a refreshed Nokia 808 Pureview. I would bought it in a heartbeat. Still rocking it till now and amazed all the people I met and showed them without failing not even once.
I have feeing the n95 will make a comeback
I think that the Live with Walkman deserves to be on the list, the last Walkman and one of the best sounding phones I've ever heard!
I would also see Sony make the best camera smartphone with a big sensor under the cybershot name.
And the now classic PureView needs to come back.

Ah, the mighty N4, mine still working fine and running the freakin Oreo!
How about some love for Motorola ROKR? I would like to have a ROKR android. I'm still keeping my old E398 which I had converted to ROKR E1. And I still have Motorola Rokr E8 which is still in good condition. Love the tech with morphing keypad.
Original moto x, same size and shape, 80% stb, 3000mah, solid camera, microsd slot.
That, an upgraded galaxy alpha and an xz3 compact with an improved iteration of the xz2c design and the compact android market will be reignited.

Alpha design was the first Samsung I liked. Nexus kinda is replaced with android one, also Sony should release Walkman and PS phones, now that Razer and Black Shark is out. If not for sales, for the publicity. But I doubt they'd do it.
E7 was my dream phone. There is rumour saying that nokia is planning to launch a new E71. But it is powered by KaiOS. I dont mind as long as it supports work things and chat app. It would be a great bussiness phone companion.
The original HTC One with those front speaker grilles! Bring back the One with top end specs.
I think that one of the best looking devices from Sony Ericsson was the W950: https://m.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_w950-1443.php
I really miss those days when design was everything and specs weren't so important like today. Nowadays they all look the same with just some small differences..
Not even Nokia had better design than Sony Ericsson.
Motorola DEFY, easily.
Imagine a rugged phone which is had the same width as its non-rugged competitors (59 mm, while iPhone 4 with a slightly smaller screen was 58.6 mm wide), a replaceable battery, a minijack. Now make the screen slightly bigger than one on the classic model (by turning the screen into a 4.5" 18:9) while maintaining the same width and give it a nice battery and dual SIM (dropping the jack if necessary) and you'll have the perfect adventure phone!
There is no direct competitor on the market. Other phones are:
1) Fragile. When I go somewhere I need a phone I can rely on, not something that is likely to die when dropped or prone to drowning.
2) Big. Active lifestyle means that the phone must be easy and comfortable to use on the go, and single-handed experience of most modern phones sucks hard. Below 60 mm is awesome, below 65 mm is tolerable, over 65 mm it is a phone for staying at home.
3) Have crappy camera. Seriously, modern flagship cameras are good enough for me to stop carrying my camera, freeing a lot of space in my backpack. Don't pretend it's still 2010 and you can pull off with a poor camera in an adventure phone.
4) Have poor or mediocre battery life. I don't care how thick my phone is if it's below 15 mm. I'd rather have it last through a day of usage than bother charging it during the day like my current LG G6.
5) Have single SIM (hi Samsung Galaxy S8 Active!). You know, people actually do travel to other countries.
Sony finally made a good job with XZ2 Compact, but give us a new DEFY and Sony will be forgotten.
Google Nexus 6 is what our modern smartphones would look like if we didn't start switching to 18:9 ratio screens.
And I'd love to consider the LG G3 its mini brother for its similar aesthetical footprint.
Kiyasuriin, 15 Apr 2018Obviously an Alpha 2 with the following specs: SD845/E9810 6GB RAM. (LPDDR4X@1866MHz) 128GB... moreI would love such a phone. I would not buy it because I prefer iOS, but that phone would finally bring live again to the small flagship phone segment. Sony lost this with the X Compact, where they introduced full plastic bodies and ugly asymmetric top and bottom bezels, and they kept it ever since like that. So the iPhone 7 / 8 really is the only option here, sadly :(
In those days Nexus 4 was really good smartphone, with good design, good specs, some os updates.. Only battery life was a little low but.. Also Galaxy Alpha, best designd Samsung smartphone in that time, build quality was awesome (for Samsung 2014-no plastic fantastic) and real rival to iPhone 6.
Nokia 808 til now is the best camera phone, with Nokia name/logo.
Nokia reinvent the E series for example a full hardware qwerty keyboard Android and a remake of the n8 with a spectacular camera with xenon flash.
what was good back in the day is that every model had different design
thats what we need at the moment all of the phones are same metal frame and glass back or midrangers metal frame and metal back
samsung started this stupid trend releasing same phone with different name
