    Hello, early birds! You are our first and most important users. Welcome to the community!

    We are gadget lovers who want nothing but the best. Currently there are very few products on the market that satisfy us, but we are going to change that. We're going to spare no expense in our quest for the perfect smartphone. To do that, we're going to need your input.

    In the next few months we want to know your views on AMOLED vs IPS screens, 8974AB vs 8974AC processors, and your views on external memory and battery life. Hardware development used to be inaccessible to the average consumer, but now we are inviting you to participate in these decisions.

    This is an exciting undertaking. We are eager to hear your voice - please join us in our mission!

    Thanks Pete. When it comes to mobile, we need a revolution, a different mindset, a different way of thinking, where the carriers don't ruin devices. I can't wait to see what you and your new company do.

    I suggest the following
    • IPS display
    • having a micro-sd slot
    • base memory as 32GB
    • ~5' inch screen
    • at least 8mpx front and back camera
    • great speakers (like htc one) placed on front
    • quality microphone (like the one Nokia uses on the lumia devices)
    • only xenon flash
    • ir receiver
    • camera button
    • unlocked (bootloader included)
    • a big battery to last the entire day or good software efficiency
    • 4G LTE/LTE-A (global spectrums)
    • micro-usb 3.0 port
    • metal (preferably aluminum or magnesium alloy) case
    • gorilla glass
    • good color combination/ design [highlight design features with complimenting colors]
    • include a flip cover
    • quality software/ UI/ UX design

    Unfortunately, you do have a large majority of power users and some that don't care about that just want a "functional" device. So finding a happy medium will be tricky.

    The bigggggest issues to challege for any device is primarily battery life and ease of use. A vast majority of users are overwhelmed by the features, so something more akin to an android iphone combo might be ideal. The ability to change out the battery and have accessories and upgrade-ability are important too.

    disagree item 1. I hate desk without a drawer. I know lots of people will agree you, but still lots will not.
    so, for designer, give customer 2 choices will be better

    amoled and IPS both look OK if the PPI is high enough
    I prefer phones with external memory card slot
    for battery, just try your best, I have nothing to say, except, if you can find and apply some revolutionary technology
    to be not just another phone
    1. please try to apply some latest and cool hardware, something few other manufacturer uses, such like the "revolutionary" battery
    2. try to make hardware/software combinations that no one ever make, for instance, how about a touch controller on side(rim?) of phone which could be launcher of LMT(find this cool software here: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1330150)
