    Cnet posted an article describing your dream iPhone, which was culled from survey responses. I have to say, this hit the mark for me in almost every category.

    What do you think? What would be the characteristics of your dream iPhone?

    Cnet is largely a waste of time... overrun by pop-ups, other ads and linkbait.

    Your dream iPhone - What you want in the next iPhone (pictures) - CNET Reviews
    Don’t need or want a screen bigger than the current iPhone 5... definitely don’t need or want a 4.7" screen.

    I have no use for NFC, so that’s another non-starter, as far as I’m concerned...

    It kind of sounds like what I’m left with is the current iPhone 5... guess that’s why that’s the phone I use. Funny how that worked out.

    I'm gonna be as realistic and practical as possible:

    4.6" display, almost no bezel space
    2GB ram, no need for 100000gigs here
    256GB storage or 128GB but with a microsd slot
    Stainless steel sides like the 4/4s
    12mp camera with a larger aperture and better image sensor, and better stock software

    Realistically?

    4"-4.3" screen (I'm perfectly happy as it sits right now, would not be opposed to a very slight increase)
    Slight weight INCREASE (truly, i wouldn't mind it feeling like the 4S did)
    Significant battery enhancements (like 6-8 hour + life expansion vs. current)
    Waterproof (similar to Galaxy S Active, which is IP67, or fully dust resistant and water resistant submersible up to 4 feet)
    Audio improvements to external speakers (for playback function and also ringer volume)
    Removal of physical power, volume and home buttons (replacement with touch sensitive panels)
    Quad core processor
    2GB of RAM
    Full rear glass panel (IE: 4/4S)...I prefer the feel of it.
    Camera hardware improvements (a more legitimate zoom feature, pretty much anything from the Lumia 920, lol)

    ...pretty much everything else I would want MORE looks to be within iOS 7. The only thing I could think of on a more design front is a color option...I would't mind being able to pick up a differing color than what we have available now (and no, a gold option is not what I mean)...I'm not willing to go with an entry level model for this option though, so it's a really trivial "want".

    Current size is the #1 reason I bought the iPhone, so I wouldn't change that at all.
    I'd be fine with a little bit thicker, in exchange for more battery (but honestly, who doesn't want more battery).
    I like Sean's idea of removing physical volume and power buttons. I'd even go one step further and replace the home button with a capacitive one.
    It would make the phone 100% smooth on the front to match the back.
    Software wise, I wouldn't change much from iOS7. Maybe add a horizontal swipe gesture to swap apps similar to iPad.
    Would also be nice to have a better method of sharing files between different apps without creating duplicates. I don't want a file manager, but some sort of shared documents section might be useful.

    Just give me an iPhone with a 4.7-5" screen and I'm set. Currently using an S4 and screen size hits the sweet spot for me. And as much as I'm enjoying the S4, I do miss the iPhone and hope they come out with a bigger display soon!!

    My dream iPhone is one in which iOS allows me the option to "select all" and "delete all" other than from the trash folder, reply to iMessages or sms messages from any screen, allows me to place my homescreen icons where I want them and hide or remove unwanted & unused native apps without a jailbreak. The hardware is irrelevant at this point because I'm totally satisfied with my iPhone 5 in that regard and was also satisfied with the 4S before that...

    Just cause I'm being lazy and couldn't really add much more, what Sean and finn said.

    Pretty much the same hardware. It's the software I would like different. I would like the OS to function as Nokias own old MeeGo.
