    This forum is so awesome and huge that I think our voice counts just a tiny little bit. I have a D1 which I love, root and OC but it seems like all available Android phones stop just a little shy of perfect. Here is the perfect android phone I'm looking for.

    4.0-4.3" thin bezel screen. The less Bezel on top sides and bottom the better. The EVO does best here. I think the Droid X is second. The existing quality of the screens is good enough for me.

    Great battery life. The Droid X and D2 are pretty good but lets put the biggest battery possible in there and get those SOCs on the latest nodes. I want a guarantee of no need to re-charge in a day.

    GPU Accelerated GUI. I believe that this is coming with Gingerbread. The current UI is OK but the GPU is just sitting there most of the time. Lets not allow the iPhone to be smoother.

    Flawless multi-touch. The Galaxy S class phones seem to be the best here. Even the X and the EVO get mixed up when your fingers cross eachother on the horizontal plane sometimes.

    Better integrated music. Again rumored to be coming with Gingerbread, I want a seamless buying/listening experience from PC to Android device.

    Better GPS. They have WAAS enable GPS units that could easily fit in smartphones. The N1 has the quickest and best GPS I've tested but a lot of Android GPS chips suck. They should be able to get a satellite lock in 5 seconds at all times in the US with no cell tower help (The US usually has 9-12 satellites visible, you only need ). This is personal preference as I use my droid to analyze the ground track of my flight students and also use it to navigate while mountaineering but I think everyone would love a solid GPS.


    OK I'm sure I'll think of much more but that is my daydream for now.:icon_ banana:

    What would you add to the list?

    for Droid 2011 I'm looking for improved RAM/ROM size and CPU speed and battery life, of course...

    Would love to see the GPU used for the GUI

    Camera that can do still and video at 1080p with quality similar to a point and shoot

    HDMI out would be neat, but i would probably never use it


    I think we have great hardware in the D1 it just needs to be taken advantage of more with software.

    Lot of good ideas so far. What I'd really like is a screen that will be easier to see in bright daylight. I hate having to turn my back to the light and cup my hands around my display if I want to make a call or read anything.

    I forgot, Retina Display like the iPhone 4 has. It adjusts to the surrounding light better than the ambient sensor in the Droid.

    Alrighty.

    4.0" to 4.3" screen SAMOLED or equivalent
    Dual Core or Quad Core Cortex A9 / ARM Eagle based SoC running at 1.0 Ghz or better
    PowerVR SGX 5xx or Mali GPU
    Lithium Sulfide Battery (3x to 4x the capacity of Lithium Polymer in the same footprint)
    Slide out QWERTY that doesn't suck
    1 Gig DDR3 RAM and 8 to 16 Gig Storage
    32 Gig to 64 Gig Class 10 MicroSD card
    802.11 b/g/n
    Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
    FM Receiver
    4G/LTE
    Dual Mode CDMA/GSM
    HDMI 1.4 w/ HDMI Out
    DLNA
    Android Gingerbread or newer
    Titanium / Aluminum frame for strength and weight savings
    Gorilla Glass
    Powder coated body not paint
    8 Megapixel Camera w/ dual LED flash with a photosensor and optics that are worth a damned
    720p or 1080p video recording at 30FPS
    Dual Mic for noise cancellation
    External speaker as good or better than the OG Droid
    Magnetometer, Accelerometer and Gyroscope
    Front facing 1.3 Megapixel or better camera

    There you have it. The ultimate Android handset. Granted it would probably cost more than most new sub-compacts but well worth it.
