So as you guys know, nowadays, OEMs put the insane processing capabilities inside our devices - great cameras, big batteries, powerful CPUs and GPUs, they enhance the overall packages with features like Fingerprint Scanners or Multiwindow mode, and so on and so forth

But with so many devices to choose from in so many different priceranges (budget phones like Moto G, midrangers like Nexus 5X, and the premium devices like iPhone 6S or Xperia Z5), there's always that ONE tiny little thing that is missing like the NFC support from OnePlus Two, or lack of on-screen buttons on the Galaxy S line-up, or missing stereospeakers on LG V10, etc etc

I propose everybody to write what would be YOUR ultimate smartphone.

Please follow your list in this exact formatting:

  • 1. Processor (frequency in megahertz, core number)
  • 2. Processor type (Atom, Snapdragon, MediaTek, Exynos)
  • 3. RAM (in gigabytes)
  • 4. Storage (in gigabytes)
  • 5. SD-Card slot (yes/no, why)
  • 6. Screen size (in inches)
  • 7. Display resolution (standard name or pixels)
  • 8. Footprint (in centimeters)
  • 9. Battery size (in mAh)
  • 10. Camera quality (in megapixels)
  • 11. Button placement (frontal or back, etc)
  • 12. Speaker placement (frontal, single etc)
  • 13. USB Slot type (micro or C, and why)
  • 14. USB-OTG Support (yes/no, and why)
  • 15. Miracast support (yes/no, and why)
  • 16. NFC Support (yes/no, and why)
  • 17. Fingerprint scanner support (yes/no, and why)
  • 18. Quick charge support (yes/no, and why)
  • 19. Multiwindow support (yes/no, and why)
  • 20. Pen support (yes/no, and why)
  • 21. Ticker display support (like Galaxy S6 Edge or LG V10, yes/no and why
  • 22-... Additional feature (in case I missed something)
  • 23. OS (Android, Windows Phone, etc)
  • 24. Whom would you like this to be manufactured by (just list the prefered OEM)
  • 25. The price (please be realistic here)

And now, let's proceed!

Octa core @2100 mhz 2nd is 1500mhz
Snapdragon 810 v2 (used in Nexus 6P)
4 gbs of ram (3 is fine though)
32 or 64 gb with micro sd card support (transfer files between phones)
5.5 inches quad hd display
15.4 x 7.7 x .80
Wouldnt mind a 3400 mahbattery.
15 megapixel camera
Buttons on back (like lg g4)
Front facing speakers
Usb type c with fast charging (getting ready for 2016) (No need for wireless)
No usb otg support (Never used)
Miracast support, love seeing my phone on a big tv
Nfc yes (I use android pay alot)
Fingerprint scanner on back, like the lg v10, they are becoming the norm
Yes to quick charge, never know when you need to give your phone a quick juice up.
No multiwindow, never use it, no point imo
No pen support either, finger is good enough
Second display isnt really required, nice to show off to buuut eeh they dont do much.
Stock android aaalll the way
As for OEM I really dont mind, maybe prefer a nexus device from lg or huawei, or something from sony, samsung or htc
Price for it would be around $600 to $800
And thats it!

1-3:
I'm a low-end user. I'm mostly reading websites, email and other messages and not playing games or doing heavy multimedia activity on my phone.
So I have no high demands for CPU/GPU performance or brand. I do think that for an acceptable user experience I need at least 2GB RAM and a current generation CPU/GPU.

6:
At least 4.7 inch, but bigger is better (also see #8).

7:
720x1280.

8:
It should be not wider than 7cm (it must be controlable with 1 hand).

10:
Camera quality is not so important, but there must be at least one camera (a "selfie" camera is not needed).

22:
A manufacturer that is doing updates for at least 2 years or the availability of alternative ROMs.
A good working calls over speakerphone with echo and noise cancellation.
A good working GPS and compass.

23:
Android, because it's tweakable and populair (mainstream).

25:
US$ 150-200.
