I disagree. What you describe is exactly what I'm hoping for and it would 'blow my skirt up' enough to make me buy one.

What you are saying here is almost word for word what a lot of people said just before the iPhone 3Gs came out too, and the day *after* it came out, everyone was falling all over themselves to say what a great move it was and how they were going to run out and get one.

I think the bottom line is that despite what people say on forums, Apple pretty much has a licence to print money here and no matter what comes out, it will sell like hotcakes. That being said, I don't see them blowing the high end part of the market that they typically like to occupy, by coming out with a giant screen mini-iPad type design as the rumours have been suggesting, which would only satisfy the budget conscious low-end american market.

iPhone 4 is very definitely the sexiest phone on the planet right now. The idea that they might re-use the basic design for the following year is not only *not* crazy, it's very sensible and pretty much to be expected.

I've had absolutely no issues with my iPhone 4's 512MB RAM in iOS 4.0 through 5.0. I have more RAM available to the system than with any other iPhone that came before it so unless Apple has some RAM heavy additions coming in iOS 6.0 next year I have trouble believing that they will double the RAM based on the reasons in this thread.

With Safari on my Mac using upward of 600MB right now, usually peaking at 1GB, I think you need more RAM on the iPhone. Even 1GB is barely enough.

This is the kind of debate I come to AppleInsider to see. Not ill informed, reactionary, inflammatory, ad hominem.

I do admit that I've not held an iPhone and an AMOLED-based phone next to one another for a direct comparison, but I've seen an AMOLED. It looked nice–certainly better than my nearly 4.5 year old iPhone–but not as good as current iPhones and the iPad.

Do I want Apple to eventually move to AMOLED once the panels can be as good and last as long as LED-LCD? Maybe. Only if they use less power and the colors are correct.

Do I want Apple to leapfrog all OLED stuff and just go to QLED? Yes. VERY YES.

Weak thumbs, eh? Don't worry. Eventually Apple will implement those gestures from 4.3 (if anyone wants to correct me on when those gestures were put in, feel free. I've been using iOS 5 for so long, I've forgotten everything about 4).

Yes, those gestures. They are ABSOLUTELY, BAR NONE the way that iOS should be navigated. Pinch to go to the home screen. Swipe between open applications. Absolute magic.

Perhaps it's a feeling that in the future you might need more ram. After all, the iPhone apps are getting larger and ever more complex. I know that my iPhone 3gs can run an impressive amount of programs (multitasking) and can exhaust the battery (while plugged in) before it runs out of ram. On the other hand I have run out of ram while running one application (streaming audio).

Well 4.5 inches is a tad big IMO I wouldn't exactly call it a bad thing. The experience using a larger screened "phone" is something you'd have to experience for yourself. I myself would probably not go above 4.3 inches...the 4in G2X i have now is fine though.

Also...these devices have stopped being phones a long time ago

Apple do a great job releasing what they do. I was astounded by the Retina display when it first came out. This year, that Sammy screen to me is a stand out leader.

Tallest Skill, both those issues were addressed with Super Amoled Plus.

Just to keep things honest, this statement is not actually true.

AMOLED panels, even 'super' and 'plus' and super-plus-maximal, are not as bright in direct sunlight as the panels Apple uses, they don't last as long, they don't have the same viewing angles, nor do they have as accurate colour reproduction.

They have a superior contrast, and over saturated colours that make them "pop," and super AMOLED is a real improvement, but it's just not accurate to say they are the equivalent of the panels Apple uses, which are better.

Which part was incorrect, the colors aren't more accurate or the power draw isn't less with Super Amoled Plus displays vs. the older Super Amoled used on the original Galaxy S and others? I don't think I made any claim comparing the iPhone display quality to the Super Amoled Plus displays, tho that essentially comes down to a personal preference when all is said and done. The two things I did claim, color improvements and reduced power requirements, were correct afaik.

There's an objective comparison of the various screen qualities here:
http://getlatestnewsupdates.blogspot...d-plus-vs.html

EDIT: Since the soon-to-release iPhone5 is just around the corner, it will likely draw comparison to the Galaxy SII released back in February. Anantech has a pretty straightforward review out today. It's apparently not the flawed device some here may think it is.

Subjective, not objective.

HDTV makers have found that people who walk into a Best Buy or Costco judge TVs with brighter colors and screens to be "better" subjectively, so they have a demo mode that basically jacks up the brightness and color saturation for the showroom floor to unnatural levels so your competitors' TV will look duller, even though they may have more accurate color reproduction. The Samsung AMOLED phone screens have always struck me as "gorgeous" in the same sense: because they are overly saturated and contrasty. And don't get me started on pen tile.

My suspicion is this is the iPhone 4S. How soon we forget the Chinese cases for the larger screens. A build of 30m is astonishing, if so, as there would be an iPhone 5 as well in this scenario and the 3GS and IP4 would not be discontinued.

I have a friend with a Samsung Galaxy S II (it's been out for awhile in the UK) and my experience with it was that the display is beautiful, the build quality is good - it's plastic but it seems fairly robust - although not as good as the iPhone 4 (which really sets the bar high in terms of build quality), but Android feels as sluggish and unfinished as it does on every other phone. The faster processors aren't really helping. Android's problem is that it has no GPU acceleration. Honeycomb only added limited GPU acceleration in the animation API. You still notice the lag while scrolling, swiping, etc. The Samsung UI is also fantastically ugly. There still aren't any games on Android that take advantage of the hardware (in my experience the typical Android game looks like a 3GS-era iOS game) and really the only reason to get a high-end Android phone is for games since, as I said, the OS doesn't have GPU acceleration so those dual GPU cores are just going to waste the rest of the time.

If you can live with Android though (and obviously for a lot of people it's "good enough"), it's a great phone. That big display really is stunning.

Well, Honeycomb was supposed to be the "GPU accelerated" Android because it added a new API for animation, but the rest of the UI is still sluggish. I think "Ice Cream Sandwich" just brings those Honeycomb features to phones. Personally if I was interested in an Android phone, I'd wait for Ice Cream Sandwich and see what that brings before buying. You can't really rely on timely updates with Android and with every update Google seems to promise more than it delivers.

I'm not saying that I detected this in the screen, but this characteristic would be ideal in the environments where and how phones are typically used.

I believe the redesigned 4 will be the 4S and will have adge-to-edge glass, a redesigned antenna, an 8MP camera with flash, and an impoved screen in general, an A5 chip and perhaps improved battery life and a world phone. This will be the high-end iPhone.

And the additinal fully new iPhone 5 will match more closely the iPod touch's specs with perhaps a 2 or 3 MP camera as opposed to a 0.7 MP one. And perhaps a world phone also. This will be the cheaper contract free iPhone and Apple which will replace the iPod touch.

I could be wrong, but that's my prediction of how it may pan out.

You are right, but that doesn't make it a better design. What about accidental touches? What about user control? A touch home button makes sense in some respects, but not on many fronts. I think the solution is to to keep the home button physical, but redesign and better engineer it. It needs to be a much higher quality physical button. Some joy sticks back in the day had buttons that would last forever.
