    I know we all have features we've seen on other devices we'd like to see continue on to future devices but what are the features that aren't really out there that you think would be a good fit for a cell phone?

    I'd like to see a sensor of sorts thay can unlock the house door when I get by it. How many times have you had your hands full standing at the door trying to dig out your keys and unlock the door?

    I'd also like to see the ability to add multiple SD cards.

    How long before we can control all appliances in your home from your phone? Turn coffee pot on? Oven? Start dishwasher, dryer, washer?....

    You already can. My buddy has a GE dishwasher he can control from an iPhone.

    Samsung has a washer and dryer as well.

    I would like facetime compatibility for Android as everybody that has an iPhone has facetime on but not every iPhone and Android has Skype or equivalent. Universal video calling would be nice no matter what phone you have

    I think this is one of the few areas Apple succeeds over Android.

    Is hangouts installed and on and liked in every Android phone? I think it may be installed but you have to opt in on iPhone I think it is opt out of facetime by logging out similar but different

    Depends on the phone but it can be installed very quickly.

    Not positive, but I don't believe that screen brightness is an Android thing. I'd think it's a hardware thing. My Note4 gets extremely bright if I'm in direct sunlight.
