    At my job I ask this question a lot " Hi what is your perfect device" I like to get a customers perspective as to what they think is their perfect device.
    So my fellow ios addicts I ask this to you "what is your perfect device" you can throw in specs, features, dimensions, etc!

    My perfect device is one that does what I want it to do when I want to do it. In other words, my iPhone....

    I don't think there will ever be a perfect device, just as much as there is no perfect job or whatever, simply because we live in an imperfect world.

    However, if you ask me, iOS is slowly becoming the perfect ecosystem and family of devices for me, because you would seldom see an iPhone or iPad break down if ever. For me reliability means the world, as even the best specifications can often be hamstrung by a buggy and unreliable experience.

    In a matter of my preference, an iPhone with a 5.7" screen with bezels exactly like the Note 3 with the specs of the 5S.

    These 3 combined: Project ara smartphone, a OS like the one on the Ubuntu edge phone, and the iOS ecosystem.

    Project ara smartphone: since I'm a PC gamer I like to be able to change parts as needed and as often as I want plus I like having a phone with fast performance when needed and battery saving when needed.

    OS like the one on the Ubuntu edge phone: I would love to have a desktop and mobile OS on one device. I could come home to dock my phone and connect a monitor (or TV) and a keyboard and mouse and use it as a desktop OS to just browse the web or stream movies or play a few simple games. Then when I'm going some where I can switch to the mobile OS. Plus I can make/answer calls and receive/reply to texts weather I'm using the desktop part or mobile part.

    iOS ecosystem: I have invested too much in apps and music to switch to another platform.

    A device that is a perfect hybrid of an iPhone and an iPad. Apps look and work well on it, it would be easy to both produce and consume media on it, and it would not look like you have a huge device against your face if you needed to talk on it.
    It would have to be thin and light in weight; a battery life that could manage a rigorous workday. And it should be easy to use.

    There is no perfect device. But the iOS line up are the closest to it.

    An iPhone the size of my Moto X. I miss my iPhone 5 and iOS in particular (which my wife continues to use) but when I pick it up it is too small. The Moto X on the other hand has considerably more screen real estate and I can still use it comfortably with one hand.

    I figured I jump on this. My perfect device would be an iPhone with a 5in screen. Still pocketable, you can weld it with one hand. Sometimes I wonder what an iPhone with the S5 specs would be like. Most excellent I'm sure. OIS 16mp camera, quad core, 2gb Ram, whatever size battery is in the S5. That really would be awesome. If apple really does release even a 4.7in screen....I'd be happy with that.

    Someone who changes devices often (I have a problem I know) this is hard. When I had the iPhone 5 I thought it was but I got bored of it. Right now I would say a 4.7-5 inch size. 13-16MP camera. Higher MP front facing camera. Slightly higher PPI maybe not "2k". Dual speakers on the bottom. iOS 8 with a different look or arrangement of the icons. Bigger battery. Quad core and more ram. And not really part of the phone but I wouldn't mind black or even space gray ear pods.

    Welcome to iMore. GREAT question. MY perfect device would probably be a combination of my two current devices (5s/Note3)....right now anyway and/or when the next best thing arrives...SMILE. Not sure their will ever be a "PERFECT" device for ME, because I'm GREEDY and feel there is always room for improvement know matter the OS or device.

    A larger iPhone with a hybrid osx and ios interface that will let me use my phone on the go or dock it on a Mac and all of my stuff with me all the time. And give me a 5 inch screen.

    Thank you I'm in the same boat multi device user as the rest of you, but what if we could eliminate walking around with 2-3 device and just have one! That's why I asked what would be your perfect device.

    A BlackBerry Z30 with it's excellent security and efficiency, 24 hr battery life, Miracst and USB OTG capable of running iOS apps (and with Google play integration)

    i.e. a truly multi-platform device that is the best of all worlds.

    Nah. Just an easy to access removable battery or a cheap portable charging external battery. =]

    My Z10 and 5c get kind of bad battery life but they work well. I use them like crazy. Of course they die. Lmao!
