If there is one wish I had for the next iPhone, it would be a larger battery. There is absolutely no sense having cool features on a phone, if we have to turn it off to ensure the phone lasts the whole day. Quite simply, even basic features like Push Email, end up killing the battery pretty quickly (especially if you are in an area with poor coverage).
Apple has taken form over function a bit too seriously over the last 2-3 years, and it is beginning to really have an impact on usability. I have used an iPhone from 2007 onwards, but now I am seriously wondering if iPhone makes the best sense.
This company has too much of a comfort zone today, that they are able to get away with many things. And the competition is simply not able to put enough pressure on Apple to keep Apple on its toes. We tolerate and accept everything Apple does, because the alternatives are pretty bad.
Apple probably needs a major disaster, to make it change its ways - like a major product launch that goes wrong, and the company is forced to recall millions of devices, something like that. If they are forced to absorb massive losses, it will the best way to teach Apple a strong lesson.
