What’s Your Most Wanted iPhone 5 Feature, Spec or Design?

With all the iPhone 5 leaks spilling a 17% larger screen, thinner display and giving us a glimpse at what the iPhone 5 might look like it might seem like we know everything to know about the iPhone 5.

We like to think that we know that the iPhone 5 has a 4-inch display, a faster quad-core processor, improved cameras and 4G LTE connectivity.

It looks like Apple will announce the iPhone 5 (and maybe the iPad Mini) on September 12th. And the iPhone 5 release date is pegged for September 21st.

But, everything we know about the iPhone 5 might be wrong.

There’s still plenty of iPhone 5 specs and features that remain unknown, and while leaks show fully assembled iPhone 5 devices, the design is still up in the air.

Apple’s product security is so good Samsung copied it to keep the Galaxy S III launch a secret, and it worked. The Galaxy S III looked nothing like the leaks. Apple may very well be allowing leaks of false parts.

This means that there’s plenty we don’t know about the iPhone. Many readers remain unimpressed with the look of the iPhone 5, which is essentially a taller, thinner iPhone 4S. Others really want NFC and the ability to use the iPhone 4S as a credit card. This is your chance to dream up the iPhone 5 you want. From the looks to the features, we want to know what you want out of the iPhone 5.

iPhone 5 Design

This rendering shows what the iPhone 5 might look like.

My personal iPhone 5 spec and feature wishlist is pretty close to the rumors.

I’m not disappointed with the leaked iPhone 5 design, but I wish Apple would round the edges like the Galaxy S III, or like the fake iPhone 5 pictured below.

I like the design of this fake iPhone 5.

While reviewing the Galaxy S III I became a big fan of the design. It’s a thin, light phone with great build quality and a large screen, but it doesn’t feel like a huge phone. If the Galaxy S III had a metal back and ran iOS 6, I’d be a happy iPhone 5 owner.

My dream phone might look like the mashup of the Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5 in the video above.

What’s Your Dream iPhone 5?

Assuming you could reach into Jonathan Ive’s dreams and insert the look, feel and features of the new iPhone, what would you pick for your must have features?

Do you want an iPhone 5 that costs $800 and features a holographic display?

Or would you rather be able to make payments, see a better camera or connectivity between your other iOS devices? Maybe you want Apple to keep the 3.5-inch display. Now’s your chance to tell the world about the perfect iPhone.

    Built in Voip so we don’t have to rely on apps to do it. Sort of like iMessage, but for making phone calls without voice minutes.

    4” Display, though I’m not sure I’m a fan of the taller, rather than a wider screen. I’m debating on this or Note 2, though I despise Samsung and the way they abandon their phones as far as getting major updates goes.

      I seriously wonder why the technology pundits ding the gs3 for “build quality”. The back is polycarbonate. It’s used for bullet proof glass. It’s lighter than aluminum so I prefer it. Also a hell of a lot better than the fragile glass back of the iPhone 4s. Anything to protect the reputation of the precious iPhone which seems like a heavy brick of old technology. The iPhone 5 better be good.

    I think even 4in screen is on the small side. I agree that at 4.7, 4.8 phones become unwieldy but i think 4.2, 4.3 is where I would have liked apple to settle at. But anyway, if the phone looks as ugly as the apparent design then I wont be buying whatever the screen size. It is seriously wank.

    Needs a much bigger screen…..4.5 or 5 inch? Needs to be a much better, lighter and thinner design……the 4s looks dated and very house brick like. Improve the camera and add memory expansion options. I’d be great to see some real design innovation……something with wow factor!

    A replaceable battery, so I don’t have to replace an otherwise fine phone because the battery won’t hold a charge
