If a 5 inch iPhone released with an amoled screen / acceptable battery, I probably wouldn't want a new phone for years :).

I would be happy with a larger screen, just not too large. I wouldn't want a phablet.

I think it is a nice list except for the 5G Wifi. Battery life could always use an improvement. 4G is fast enough for most people.

that list is a joke. iPhone doesn't need a damn thing to "stay in the game". it already has great battery life, and Apple are clearly more concerned about making it thinner and lighter while keeping the battery life the same. it also already has almost the best camera, second only to that Nokia which has a camera that sticks out the back. not Apple style. AMOLED with higher pixel density? why higher pixel density than retina? there will be little benefit at the cost of lower battery life, which was a priority only a couple paragraphs earlier. 5G wifi? nobody cares.

the only thing people actually want on that list is a bigger screen, but Apple hardly "needs" it.

The camera on the iPhone 5s is pretty good right now. Higher megapixels don't equate to better pictures - just bigger files. It's all about the optics. A bigger screen is the only thing I'd like, and only if they do it without making the iPhone into a giant fondleslab.

Fondleslab? I like it.

The camera is great and I agree about the megapixels. The pictures already need to be sized down to be manageable in many instances. I don't want or need more than 8 MP in a phone camera. However, they can increase the optics each year without increasing the megapixels. I'd love to see even better low light capabilities, for example.

Maybe a slightly larger screen that's it,it's perfect right now best phone I've had and yes I've had many. It's not like I don't know a thing about Android and rooting and launchers and zooper widgets and ON n ON it's fun but I just love Love how I keep going back to iPhone for a reason. It works year 3 as it did day 1
