Lte would be nice but don't think it's gonna happen since Verizon has already said it will be CDMA/GSM compatible and I don't think it could be CDMA/GSM/LTE compatible. The screen needs to be 4" minimum or I'm going back to android- I want a bigger screen!

Having had the BB & Droid X experience and now appreciating the finesse of the iPhone4, IMO Apple better up the ante and come out with a new iPhone that is AHEAD of the Android pack. Everything I'm reading indicates the next iPhone will be a "catch up" scenario to the best Android phones now on the market. It's hard to believe the company that created the smartphone Wow factor is actually behind the curve at this point. Androids may lack the sophistication of the iPhone, but they are more flexible, customizable and capable in today's market.
I'm hoping the next generation iPhone will have the larger screen (4++ inches), the notification light, a customizable home screen (as in jailbreak), at least an 8 mp camera and 3 mp front-facing camera, the ability to use flash web pages, customizable ringtones & notifications, USB mass storage access to the iPhone SD card and internal memory where material can be dragged and dropped into iPhone folders from
a computer, the absence of ever-crashing iTunes control, a dual processor, maybe LTE capabilities (at
least as an option), and MORE. The MORE is where Apple will move in front of the Android pack.
Apple's main strength at this moment, again IMO, is that they are established for quality, actively attempt to somewhat protect their customers' security, and offer a simplified product selection. The Android world has become a quagmire of alternatives - what now? 200+ devices, many running older operating systems. The consumer has to pay major bucks for Android and iPhone devices. Nowadays, in the Android world, making choices has become way too complex.
So, my experiences with the quality of the iPhone and iPad make me hope that the next generation of both will leave the Androids in the dust.

You said the MORE they add to it, the further Apple will move into the "lead". The problem a lot of Android based phones have is they are so chalk full of gimmicks and gigantic screens that you sacrifice other things...screen quality, battery life, clunky performance, etc. If that is what comes with MORE...keep it.
As far as some of the other points you made...i'll touch on a few...
- The camera on the iPhone 4 is by far better than any of the 8mp cameras on the droids...period. The HDR feature on iP4 makes pictures that looks as good (and most times better) than the cameras on the higher end droids...there are comparisons upon comparisons online that you can see comparison shots. The front camera is certainly in need of improvement, but the rear camera is fine (though i would not complain about an improved camera, it deff doesn't NEED it).
And what is the deal with this iTunes stuff? Maybe its a Windows based PC issue...but i haven't had a crash with iTunes in years and years...actually, since the first iPhone came out, its progressively gone from really good to damn near perfect as far as software goes. Do you really experience constant crashing? or is it more of that negative hype that surrounds iTunes on the other side of the fence because its an Apple product? Honestly, i can't see how a Windows user would ever find an Apple product to be more "crash prone" than their own OS anyways...

Four things I would really like to see in Iphone 5:
1) Giving the browser the ability to reflow text. It is a major issue for me that the Iphone browser does not zoom the text in large enough to read. Too many times I have to switch the phone to landscape to read the text and sometimes that doesnt even work in making the text is large enough for me to read without squinting.
2) More speed. I used my Iphone 4 since release but recently switched to a GS2. The speed of these two phones are not comparable. Apps take too long to load and when they do, and they have to update, it is several seconds before they are ready to roll. On the GS2 everything in instant. I sold my GS2 to come back to the Iphone and I am now waiting for the Iphone 5. The difference is huge in speed.
3) Background updating of apps. I jailbreak for one reason. So that, with weather icon, I have a live weather icon on my home screen. This need not be limmited to a weather app. Facebook and Twitter should also update on a user specified schedule. I understand this will hurt battery life, but the user should have the option.
4) A larger screen.
Thats about it. Everything else I wanted was included in IOS5.

I'm totally with you on the weather icon, liveclock etc. though... That's also the only reason I jailbreak nowadays. That's something Apple has severely overlooked but I doubt it will be fixed on the iPhone 5, unless live icons are a new feature only for the new phone, which would be stupid.
In regards to a larger screen, that may finally happen this year, but Apple's sales show that general consumers really don't care about that. They are buying iPhones more and more every year, and the 3.5" screen is very comfortable. When they updated to retina display, it made the screen feel huge to me, because it shows so much more detail than anything else. 800x480 on a 4.3" screen like Android phones is just a waste of space to me.
Speed will definitely come... You're forgetting the S2 is not even out yet in America and iPhone 4 came out over a year ago.

I just had a bizarre little moment. Came on here to find out about the iPhone 5 and everything sounded like the current iPhone 4S. Then I looked at the post dates!!!! LOL!!!!!
Ok....I'll go back to lurking and looking for information on the iPhone 5 2012!

The iPhone 5will be slightly different. I think that a larger screen is a given, NFC chip, for sure since all the carriers are supporting Isis here in the USA (Except Sprint because of Google Wallet), LTE and world phone capable. New look would be nice and I would like to see some more durability from it. I also would like it to keep its weight, some phones feel cheap without it.

An LTE iPhone would have to have a GSM antenna along with LTE. The 4S is currently a world phone with CDMA and GSM so that Verizon phones in the USA will work with Vodafone. I can see this happening for the next iPhone. Verizon is making a few LTE phones world phones as well.

In other news...correcting someone when you have no way of knowing what the iPhone is going to be called seems a bit silly, silly.
