More than 5 tones without jailbreak. And more customization! (also without jailbreak) and a release date!

I agree, I'm looking forward to iOS 5 just as much as seeing what upgrades the iPhone 5 will have to offer.

Kernel access and over-clocking capabilities. Am I being ambitious?

I'd rather have Text Wrap. I wouldn't want to risk damaging the hardware or comprise battery life just to make it slightly faster.

Meh. Not bothered about battery, I can always charge. I want to do it for test purposes alone, sad I know, but it'll be my device which I've paid for, thereforee I should be able to do whatever I like to it.

Over clocking a smartphone like the Galaxy S2 doesn't make it slightly faster... it becomes much faster. Admittedly it can become unstable if you take it passed 1.4Ghz, still jaw-droppingly fast, though.

Agreed, give the phone a smaller life.

Not really, the iPhone 4 has an under-clocked processor which is apable of much more. You can over-clock different computers for years with no trouble, one of the main problems is cooling.

And that heat will increase battery drain in a tightly-packed phone. No thanks.

I know the battery will drain, i installed Android on a 3G via Bootlace... it would go from 100% to 0% in an hour. As I mentioned, for test purposes only.

Wow. It's for testing only, you won't need to cool unless you're running something at a ridiculous speed. Over-clocking works, it's tried and tested.

I'm most excited about the design and larger screen. That was a big trade off when I switched from Android to Apple, a much smaller screen. I'm more excited about the new features in iOS 5 though.
