Strange or not, it's a common theme. I don't see many average consumers saying it, myself, but people do say it, and I see a lot of people choosing Samsung devices.
Personally I like the restraint Apple has applied to the home screen and iOS in general, but perhaps it's time we saw more useful functionality in iOS (and I'm not talking about gimmicky Sammy features), taking into account how the devices are being used today. Hardware wise, I think the obvious next step is to have the iPhone grow up into a family of devices, and get rid of the old iPhone models.
I'd like to see an 8GB 4" A6 powered plastic iPhone introduced as their budget offering, a 4" iPhone A7 5S type devices with a 13MP camera, a finger scanner and large storage options as their main product, and a 5" large screened version of that main product as an additional high end option. And I'd like to see a better value proposition on their main product. It's crazy to think the 5 cost me almost €700, and that was the 16GB model!
We need a budget iPhone at around €349, the main iPhone at €499 (599 & 699), and the large iPhone at €599 (699 & 799). I know that won't happen, but the iPhone would sell in incredible numbers at those price points.
I don't want to repeat what I've already stated with regards software improvements, but they'd be nice, too.
