    Wanted to get a feel for what kind of features, changes, etc. that you'd like to see on the iPhone 5? Can be something you want added to the phone physically or in iOS.

    Suggestions? Ideas? Wishes and hopes?

    1- the home button gone.
    2- A Better zooming hardware. equipment for photos and videos and a 12MP for the rear camera.
    3- a 5MP camera for the front camera.
    4- Stereo speakers for musics.
    5- merge the volume buttons on the side of the phone just like the one on the earphone.

    Most important to me is TRUE push email for Gmail/Google Apps email. Not something you have to use Exchange for either and not just push notifications, but TRUE PUSH EMAIL just like Android and Blackberry has.

    How Apple doesn't have this to this day still amazes me.

    Its not proper push. It can still take 5 minutes or so to get an email. Push should be (almost) instant.

    Hardware - A bigger screen but not a bigger phone. A faster processer and better camera front and back. A bigger capacity battery would be good.

    Software - The ability to remove the stocks in the notification centre and add SBsettings style toggles. Facetime over 3G (Think we are getting that). I would like to see turn by turn navigation like the droids. I know that's not going to happen but one can hope. Also do something about the way we have 2 or 3 different routes when you use google maps in the beta. Can get very confusing...

    I don't think apple will ever allow that. Lol. To be honest I was amazed when I got my first iPhone that it didn't have it but I haven't missed it...

    Not a proper FM radio. It would be Internet radio so would chew up your data...
