    With all the new phones coming out recently (Droid, HTC HD2, Nokia N900) or soon (Google Phone) what do you think are some features, abilities, or changes that the new iPhone will need to stay relevant. This is assuming that the 4th Gen iPhone comes out in June (2010) with OS 4.0.

    UI is second to none so an emphasis on multi-tasking would be the only thing I want.

    Better management of notifications would be great. I would also like to be able to add custom themes and email tones without having to jailbreak. And for the love of man, get rid of that slick shiny plastic case. A matte finish would be nice.

    I have a short list of things that would be nice ( in order of importance to me)


    1)BETTER BATTERY LIFE
    2)New app and UI management, it's just too damn cluttered now
    3)More storage ( ex 64GB as opposed to a max of 32)
    4)New notification system
    5)Produce a proper resolution video instead of the current iphone screen one
    6)Camera and video camera zoom
    7)21 MB/S where supported?
    8)Camera flash
    9)New hardware look. Current one is dated.
    10) Oleophobic all over
    11) Wireless sync like in the Zunes
    12) Custom themes and tones without jailbreak
    13) For the love of god a understandable app approval process.

    1. Better screen for sure. The DROID's screen makes the iPhone look blurry.
    2. Better notification system
    3. Some background/multitasking, even if it's minimal or limited to a certain number of apps.

    Agreed and I would add aside from the phone apps, let me choose which apps I want to multitask.

    It's more so the little things that bother me the most.

    3G Toggle on Settings Main Menu !

    E-Mail
    - Create Calender events from Mail or text message
    ( as you can in OS X )
    - Universal Inbox

    Voice Memo should record phone conversations.

    Spotlight
    -Should have a search History
    -Searches the web
    -Search for SMS and Calender

    Maps

    - Alternate routes

    Minor things:

    - Higher screen resolution. (less black on the front and more screen)
    - Some type of software on the lockscreen that can replace the functionality of Intelliscreen
    - Ability to change the black wallpaper.
    - Add another tab at the top of the phone recent tab for out going calls
    - Add an easy way to skip to the bottom of a page in Safari.
    - Full screen in Safari with no top and bottom borders. (Something similar to where the border disappears in Youtube when screen is tapped.)
    - Make it so Safari doesn't auto refresh every time I go to Safari.this happens a lot when I click a link within Safari and another page is opened. When I return to the original page it refreshes. Not always but a lot. (Unnecessarily wastes the battery)
    - A better notification system!
    - A quicker way to toggle Wifi, 3G, GPs, Bluetooth,.....
    - Custom alert tones - email, text, notifications
    - Background application for none apple applications (even if it was only limited to certain apps)
    - LED light
    - A way to skip to a specific page on springboard (the dots are there on the bottom of springboard, you should be able to run your finger over that area to move to different pages)
    - Navigation in Google Maps
    - Signal bars that are accurate!
    - Combined email mailbox
    - A way to see and respond to text, emails, notification while using another app.
    - Spotlight that searches the web
    - When I first unlock my phone I would to be presented with information, news, missed text, phone calls, weather something other then rows of applications.

    I would like to see:

    -UI Redesign
    -Web Search included in Spotlight
    -Widgets
    -Redisgned Notes App
    -Deletion of STOCKS App
    -HD Screen
    -5MP Cam W/Flash
    -FLASH!!!!
    -Better Photo Editing

    Customization should be looked at more. Although, its not the most important aspect by any means, it is a big part of what makes a phone attractive. The case design is brilliant, now lets work on the UI.

    Voice Memo should record phone conversations.


    One reason this would not be put into use is because without the consent of the party on the other end, recording someones voice in conversation is illegal. The laws may have changed, but to my knowledge that is correct.

    In most (many) states, the law is that at least one person must be aware of the recording. That includes yourself as you are a part of the conversation.
