    We are a month away from kicking off the new year and 2016 saw a mixture of new ideas and stale ideas. There are some companies like Blackberry I think could have benefitted from modular tech, while companies like HTC could have benefitted from new innovation period.

    What advice would you give to each manufacturer in 2017; Motorola/Lenovo, HTC, LG, Samsung, Apple, Blackberry, Huawei, Sony, Google (though they have companies make phones for them), and other smaller manufacturers out there?

    Yup front facing speakers AND water proof.

    Keep SD cards... and lets get some unified mod system created for manufacturers instead of a fractured eco-system where everyone has there own stuff... make it like a PC where everything is standardized...

    Ditto on the speakers, sd card slot , and replaceable battery. The only thing I would add is a activated (shame on you verizon for de-activating fm mods) FM radio module as well as an AM radio module to be capable of receiving EBS broadcast in the case that data/phone networks are down during a national emergency.

    I was working as a tech in DC on 9/11 and was attempting to communicate what was going on back to my supervisors.

    I was on the ramp @ army navy drive getting on 395 after finishing a call at ATF when the plane hit the pentagon and turned around to go up to Arlington ridge road to see what was going on. Shortly after going up there is when the powers that be cut off the direct connect on everybodys nextel and the phone lines were jammed. The only way I knew what was going on was through the radio in my car.

    I always wondered what would of happened if it had been one of those days that I took the subway instead and how would I get that info. That's where a working radio on your phone pays for itself.

    Large, replaceable batteries that can be charged wirelessly and SD card slots. You can keep the 4k screen, thanks.

    You got me thinking there are rumors that Apple is working on wireless charging without having to place phone on charging pad ...that be great you come home phone connects and starts charging while you are going about your day ...or get to work same thing ...now that has me interested

    LG has already developed this tech, though the phone needs to be near (not on) the charger. Hoping it gets into the G6.

    Hmmm....

    FM/AM Radio capable
    IR Blaster
    5.9" QHD (4K video looks great from Youtube on my Nexus)
    Minimal bezels (maximize the screen).
    Fast start low light camera technology
    Micro SD card
    Fingerprint reader
    Wireless Charging that is compatible with Qi charging (Powermat who?)
    keyboard and screen dockable (turning the phone into a usable computer, where the dock charges the phone).

    Someone, please build this phone for me, and make sure it says Made in the USA on the back. Thanx!
