How dust gets inside your Nokia Lumia 920's front facing camera

What would be your 'perfect' Windows Phone?

What's your perfect Windows Phone?

While the current Windows Phone device lineup has plenty of quality choices, if you could design your own Windows Phone, what would it be?

WPCentral reader elliot436 has started a discussion over in the WPCentral Forums asking what your perfect devices would be. So far, the responses range from combining existing devices to more specific requirements.

My perfect device would have 2GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core CPU, 16GB of on-board storage, Qi-wireless charging and micro-SD expansion. For the camera, a nice 20MP PureView camera with RAW file support then add all the typical bells and whistles such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a-GPS, gyroscope, compass and a 2420 mAh battery. Oh, don't forget Gorilla Glass to protect the 5" 1080p display.

Heck, while I think the world of my Lumia 1020, I'd be content if AT&T picked up a variant of the Lumia Icon without butchering the Qi-wireless charger.

So what say you? If you could spec out your perfect Windows Phone, what would it feature? Or would you play Dr. Frankenstein and simply stitch together various parts from different Windows Phones to create your perfect device.

You can join in on the "What is your perfect device?" discussion in this Windows Phone Central forums discussion.

The icon with a SD card slot and glance

bc3tech says:

exactly. THIS.

YES !! 930 in my case, India doesn't have icon.
Though I'd love an even bigger battery ! (or maybe removable battery)

vitalivs says:

Exactly, the 930 with SD card + better battery.

And HDMI out. And AMOLED screen for glance.

tkdmacgeek says:

41MP camera / 20MP rear camera, 5.1" screen, microsd card, quad core, 4GB ram, 128GB storage, removable battery, and more color selections including CYAN

Brian Brown2 says:

So, basically you're saying you'd want a $1200 phone?

tkdmacgeek says:

It wouldn't be $1,200. It could be $199-299.

ronijs19 says:

Contract free, factory SIM unlocked...

Way you US people alweys speak about contract price? Don't answer, i alredy know that.

aemehran says:

LOL. Sounds about right. I'd go for a 1520 with 41MP camera and a stylus. A stylus on a Windows phablet would rock the world of OneNote! :D

JamesPTao says:

Define you removable battery good thinking!

KMF79 says:

Why would you want 41mp in the front and 20mp in the rear? It makes more sense the other way.

tkdmacgeek says:

I meant 41 as the main. Lol

Shawn Magm says:

Anthony Weiner would prefer 41mp for the FFC.

NHunt67 says:

930 style and specs, but with the following changes. Snapdragon 805 running at 2.5GHz, and SD card + better battery. 20+ megapixel camera with it's own imaging chip. Notification LED, Stereo Speakers.

SocalTouch says:

Basically Lumia Icon/930 in an unlocked version with LTE bands for most carriers (like Apple does with unlocked 5s devices sold at Apple stores) and sold directly at Microsoft Stores without need for contracts as long as full retail price is paid!

JNate says:

YES!! But he forgot to mention the swappable batteries!

PolishHitta says:

Any device such as HTC with full WP support

identity-x says:

And a 41mp PureView with dedicated imaging chip.

Exactly. .930 like hardware except maybe a snapdragon 805/801 + 41mp(or lesser megapixel but better quality than the 808) + dedicated imaging chip + bigger battery + sd card slot. vidoe of 120fps 1080p ( i think witht the 805 that should be a posibility ) and finally waterproof. This would be a flagship no one could compete with.. 

 

 

realwarder says:

Yes.  Dedicated imaging chip for speed.  While optics may be better on Lumia, speed of shots and camera loading, HDR etc is better on iPhone.

Lloydbm4 says:

Yep, this. But add Qi, not the PMA crap AT&T is trying to force down our throats.

Drewidian says:

I was thinking the same thing, but if I have to go all out, I'd love an Icon with the an upgraded PureView 41MP (or better) camera with 32GB built in storage and a MicroSD card slot and yes, glance support.  We are so close to the best devices of all, I can taste it.

This, on Verizon, but it would be great if it was on all US carriers too. 

John Paddock says:

Exactly what I was thinking!!

Viipottaja says:

And a bit less blocky design.

Rishicash says:

Exactly. It doesn't feel good in your hand and it is just plain blah looking. The 925 has the best design....and make it in great colors again!

RaRa85 says:

The Icon specs in the Lumia 925 body with SD slot. Boom!

mottle says:

+ the color options of the 930.

Icon specs and screen size, glance, SD card slot, 925 design, 1020 camera, 520 price. I just described an impossible phone.

Ferazzz says:

Exactly this!!!

Markp74 says:

Exactly what I was just saying to a mate, I would like the 925 with a higher res screen, a 20 MP camera, MicroSD and a better battery, this would be the best case in my opinion, the 925 is in my opinion the best weight and feel of any of the Nokia phones and by far the most professional looking phone.

KeegdnaB42 says:

Beat everyone to it

Yes! the same for me! Icon or 930

dreonedon says:

Icon and 930 is thick as a brick only Nokia fan boys like! 925(1520) in a 5inch package top seller hope Microsoft stops all these thick phones

myrandex says:

What r u talking about the 1520 is quite thin at least.

dreonedon says:

That's what I said the 925 or the 1520 in a 5inch package would be perfect! I don't like the icon\930 it looks like a brick my opinion!

Agree. I like the body shape of the 1520... but just want it on a 4.5" - 5" screen... with expandable storage. That's about it.

ivo_apo says:

STOP BRICK PHONES!!!
STOP BRICK PHONES!!!
STOP BRICK PHONES!!!

I have the icon and it is thicker than my old s3 but the battery is twice as good for me... The feel is very solid and beautiful... I love the style.... Wish for stylus and inking for OneNote... Perhaps they could shoehorn a atom quad core like my dvp8!

thomasdtran says:

Hit the nail on this one!

CrazyQwert says:

Yup! Completely agree!

Life Artist says:

Lumia 925 build + SD slot + 41mpx/60fps/f1.4 pureview camera.

The ICON/930 don't support Glance!

dreonedon says:

Icon is a thick brick! 925(1520) with 5inches would be top seller

hopmedic says:

And 41MP camera.

Fatfox G says:

5" 1520 would be perfect for me

asylumxl says:

This. I love my 1520. It's big and beautiful. Sometimes I wish it was a tad smaller.

uberlaff says:

A slightly smaller 1520 that is somewhere between 5 & 6 inches. The Galaxy Note is about perfect for sizing and a 1520 around that size would be amazing. 

It has to have polycarbonate unibody with some great colors. I'm still a fan of the cyan, yellow, red, and love the new green. I'm not a fan of the 930's design. It's like a phone version of the mullet. (business in the front; party in the back)

Since this is the perfect phone, I'll take Nokia's next gen 41MP camera (match existing image quality but make it thinner).

Also, must be submergable in water for brief periods. I want to take pictures of my kids at the beach. Don't want to have to worry about water. All phones should have this.

armyvet66629 says:

To be a little more specific, as to combine everyone's comments
5" 1080p screen
41mp pureview rear camera
8mp ffc
Qi wireless
Thin
Bigger battery
64gb internal storage with expandable SD card slot
Glance support
Gorilla glass 3
Edge to edge screen with minimal bezel

tribexx says:

I agree with this, but I would add the rugged and waterproof of the Smartphones for the military.

Black Lumia says:

All the way, man

i dont want it to be thin, i want it to be solid, a much better sacrifice if you ask me.

YaDumb says:

luckily I don't use much space on my phone so the 32gb on my icon is perfect (tons of 1080p concert videos taken and still 8gb left) but not having glance is killing my perfect phone! double tap to awake was amazing on my 822 and I miss it more now that 8.1 has made my power button take 5 tries to work.

Hoppman says:

This is where I am at.  Contract up in 9 days, going for Icon to replace 822.  I would love Glance and MicroSD but what I will also miss is the ruggedness of my 822, never needed a cover for it as it was plenty strong.  Been dropped on concrete, in water and everywhere else and it just keeps working.

i'm impressed by strength of lumia 820, mine droped a few times on concrete and ceramic, but it did no damage! 

YaDumb says:

Exactly! My 822 went through a lot without a case. I do have a case on my Icon though to be safe. But a few months ago I dropped my Icon in the driveway and my mom ran it over (I actually had to pry it out of the ice) and nothing happened to it.

Hoppman says:

Wow!!!  I wouldn't have expected the Icon to survive that.

What case?  I have already come to the conlusion that a case on the Icon is a necessity, I seem to have the dropsies whether it be a phone or water bottle.  Many of the cases seem to be rather average at best based on the reviews I read.

YaDumb says:

I bought the cheapest case I could find because there's no good lightweight cases out yet for the Icon. I just needed something because the Icon is super slippery.

NIST says:

5.5" 1080p quad-core 41mp preview rear with a 5mp wide angle front camera. 64GB with microSD support. Wicom pen support. 4 HAAD microphones recording in 4 channel stereo. MiniHDMI with DSP and SRS decoding. Plus all the usual sensors, Bluetooth, Gorilla glass in the body of the ICON. Edge to edge screen also!!

Fleischyy says:

Yeah this! Lumia 930 with microSD and removable battery.

one0one951 says:

I figured someone would beat me to it. I love my Icon but having glance and a micro SD slot would have made it perfect.

Novron says:

8X or 925 body, Replace the ARM with an Cherrytrail Atom. Load Windows 8.1 metro on it. Add phone functionality. Desktop and legacy apps only show up when the phone is docked and connected to a monitor. 4 GB RAM minimum, SD slot, 1080p screen minimum.

why'd leave the sd card slot out in the first place?

mike13ftw says:

And a 3000 mah battery . LG did it with g2 and Nokia can't ?

Hoppman says:

+822 and start with 32GB onboard storage.

Vastustaa says:

I so miss my glance.

kalo88 says:

Icon with SD Card + Glance

Perhaps slightly thinner and lighter if possible, Nokia phones have a tendency to be 'chunky and heavy'... not saying loads here but a little bit wouldnt go a miss!

Yangstax says:

I would go with the earlier rumoured L1820 specs:

Snapdrageon 805

5.2" qHD display (2560x1440)

3gb memory

30MP camera  (41MP preferred with no hump)

2MP front camera

3400mAh battery

32gb storage and 128gb microSD

In-built wireless charging

I'll upgrade my L1020 to this phone at anytime.

 

pookiewood says:

A few more.  ICON with that + AT&T LTE Bands, wireless charging (AT&T), also non ugly color options (Red, Blue, Yellow > Green, Orange).

vakama94 says:

This. Maybe a 64GB option too but essentially the Icon with expandable storage.

The icon is too boring, the Lumia 1520 is perfect but they need to have a 4.5" screen version anything bigger is to large. And a 3000 mah battery. Glance screen is a must! Wireless charging is nice but can live without. The 1520 has a fun design! And on Verizon!

How is the icon boring? There is no other phone like it out there. The 1520, on the other hand, borrows heavily from earlier Nokias.

duk3togo says:

Nice, personally I would go for a 5" 925 with SD slot, 32gb on board, 3gb ram, Qualcomm quad, 20 mp xenon/led flash, 4x optical would be nice, 5 mp front facing wide lens led flash (pureview). I still think the 925 has the best Nokia design to date.

Swiftnc says:

Yup.  The Icon is sooo close.

DavidinCT says:

Yea, the ICON with MicroSD....maybe a better battery(2-3 days on a charge with use) and maybe HDMI out...otherise, it would be the perfect phone...

Maybe some color options on Verizon......maybe ?

Zamir Yusof says:

the specs of 1520 (minus the large battery) with 5" assertive display in 925 chassis. would be better if the back cover can be replacabe (like 820)

poken1151 says:

That's all I wanted.

tkdmacgeek says:

Hologram Cortana!!!!!

Silent Night says:

An ATIV made by Nokia..

930 + IPS display and Glance Screen

Jazmac says:

One that looks like the Icon with its features but has a backbone of the Lumia 920.

dreonedon says:

925 (1520) with 5inch 1080p or 2k, 20mp camera, 3,700mah battery, slow mo video recording 4k recording etc! Best phone ever

Hoppman says:

1520 is way to big, people with those attached to their ear look like dorks.  Might as well buy a 2520 and hold that to your ear.  ICON FTW!!!

dreonedon says:

Can you read! 1520 with a 5inch screen or a 925 with a 5inch screen! Both would be smaller than the thick boxy icon/930

Hoppman says:

Blah blah blah!!!  Get an Ativ SE, smaller and lighter than the Icon, but the screen isn't as good IMO.

Big phones need to die!!!

duk3togo says:

LOL just because you have midget hands doesn't mean some don't want a large phone. It's good to have options that's like saying everyone must own a smart car and all SUVs need to die!!!

Micah Dawson says:

Pretty much what I have now.
Nokia made, 1520 body and size.
Even better screen
41 megapixel camera
32 GB storage
Preferably cyan or yellow color with matte or glass body
5-8 megapixel ffc

And I'm happy.

GSOgymrat says:

I have to say my 1520 is pretty perfect now that I can put apps on the SD card.

Scott Brooks says:

Any flagship with a microSD slot. It's ridiculous that it's not being added on every phone.

RaRa85 says:

Yeah pretty ridiculous that the 925 didn't have one with 16gb of storage. It really seems that the 1520 is the clear cut best Windows Phone if size is not an issue for you.

Sin Ogaris says:

It's amazing how comfortable the 1520 I'd, other phones just feel small by comparison now (thing back to my shattered 920 for the physical game is a chore). The only thing that needs to be fixed is the screen, it's way to sensitive and is really frustrating at times.

Novron says:

If size is an issue, ATIV SE.

pallentx says:

I think micro SD is way overrated, especially on a flagship. Ship it with 32GB min and up to a 128GB option.

L0gic Bom8 says:

If only the Lumia 930 had microSD. I still love my 1520!

Larrybeo says:

I want the size and weight of the 925 but with a 1080p screen that is edge to edge with no bezel. The new Windows Phones are way too big.

Have fun dropping it

GodlikeNay says:

I agree! All the 5"+ phones are too big!

blackprince says:

Lumia 930 but with a 4K screen at 5"

spinzeroWL says:

4K?! Why?! It just nails the battery life for no discernible benefits...

Personally, I would like a 1020 device with the innards and SD slot of the 1520. Oh, and 60fps video support along with USB OTG and Bluetooth HID support.

Hopefully Nokia's Cyan update will give us a nice bump in video framerates. If that happens, I really don't want for too much else (my 1020 has 64GB of storage...)

dram30 says:

Speaking of 60fps... Does anyone know if the camera hardware in the 1520 or 930 can handle that frame rate? I know the SnapDragon 800 is good for it but is this something that Nokia or Microsoft could enable in the future?? Also 4K video recording for when it becomes more mainstream.

That's what I want too! The next 1020 successor will be mine!!

Everything you said George, plus Glance and LTE. Sounds perfect...

rohith513 says:

Lumia Icon with 3400mah battery,SD card, glance screen, gorilla glass 3.

Minus the SD card and you've got my "perfect" Windows Phone.

Novron says:

Icon screen has GG3.

dooooowa says:

Absolutely right. I can live without the SD card, but the most important reason that my next phone will not be a nokia/wp phone is that nokia uses to small batterys. The Icons/930's battery is simply to small compared to the competition.

I love the design of the 920/1020, but I hate the small battery every day ...

All I want is a 1020 with the newer specs (like 1080p 5inch, quad core, etc), microSD card slot and/or 64GB built in, faster shutter and capture speed, better FFC, etc. Is that so hard? :-/

jorgehmichel says:

Hellyeah!! That's it for me too

sholokov says:

+1020. This would be the only thing that would replace my 1020. A bonus would be wireless charging.

rav405 says:

I would like optical zoom coupled with the 41mp  pureview camera, 5mp or 8mp ffc,Snapdragon 805, 32gb inbuilt  with a micro sd card slot......

DreadVenom says:

This plus 3200mAh battery. Also a fix for 3D games turning my phone into a hotplate.

khansabil says:

Just what I want

pallentx says:

Yep, this is what I'm holding out for. 1080 screen, top processor, less 'bump' for the camera if possible and I'm sold.

schlubadub says:

1020 with microSD would've been an instant-buy for me. As it stands I'm still waiting for a similar phone with microSD. Nokia keep skipping microSD for the top-end phones... no idea why. The mid-ranges have microSD and the gigantic phablets have them... but not of the flagship models do :(

marantaz says:

I'm with you, sir, you described my ideal phone! Great minds indeed.

That would be a lumia 925 but with a 5inch display or 4.7 and at least a 5mp ffc ana wireless charging i d'ont care about sd card if it came in 32GB ^^

A Lumia 920 type body, a 1020's camera and the Icon's horse power.

feeked says:

The icon in 4.3 inch form. Or a Nokia 8x

Azurus says:

A perfect phone would be the Lumia icon/930 with all its specs but with the next generation USB you mentioned before in one of your articles. but with full aluminum/magnesium body. Throw a kickstand to that amazing metal body and there you have a perfect phone. In my head it would look more like a Surface Phone.

I never understood why anyone would bother with a stand on a phone. eventually, the line between phone and tablet is just gonna disappear entirely

Azurus says:

That's the point ... We want that gap to disappear a 5 inch phone is big I can watch long videos on it , I don't want to hold my phone for 15 minutes , I want a kickstand to help me browse the internet and do whatever I want . Who knows maybe future wireless keyboards can be connected to phones and you can sit and enjoy controlling your phone wirelessly

arunnbio says:

Nokia Lumia 925 design with icon spec.

MR Aziz says:

I'm happy with 1520 but I think icon 930 great choice for standard flagship

Nokia 1030
Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core.
3GB of RAM
5" 1080p display
4 mics (like the Icon)
41 mp camera (i little better than 1020.)
32/64 GB with Micro-Sd expansion.
Yellow, like The 920.
And under 10mm of espessure.
Qi built-in.

sepatown says:

This is almost exactly what I had in mind. The only changes I would make are: 6" display plus the battery on the 1520. 5" won't be able to hold that much battery, I think. Plus I love the 6" on my 1520.

jbjtkbw00#AC says:

Oh yes. Here it is!!!

Infamy79 says:

Same for me, but I expect the 1030 to have the 805 chip which supports on board processing for up to 55mp images and 4K video. Otherwise it will need a dedicated chip for imaging which may have advantages, but I'd suspect waiting for the 805 to reach public release is why we haven't seen a follow up announced yet.

I'd also like dual-SIM for when I'm travelling, but given no manufacturer makes a flagship with this feature I'd assume that I'm not going to get that.

pallentx says:

+ Cyan as an option.

M_Mike says:

I know it said join in the fourms.  But..........

Icon with glance, SD card, 20% more battery capacity, and F2.0 lens like the one the 920.  2.4 is good but 2.0 is better for me.  

I am very happy with it as is. But those additions would be all I need.  

RyanAMG says:

1520 on Verizon with Qi. That's all I want

Whatever may be the specs you put in.Windows phones will never compete with Android, let the hammering on my comment begin

In terms of lag you are absolutely correct

And calling people to smash your comment doesn't make you any more right

Pretty sure Android is trying to compete with Windows Phone. Hence Kit Kat's further optimization for low-end devices.

2tomtom says:

And king of scanning your personal info to sell you.

Cortana stores your information too, doesn't it?

Guys this comment came from me out of pure frustration that why the hell did I buy a Windows phone. All the world treats us like second class citizens.

hprvez says:

Try harder.

bullmoose20 says:

Removable battery and microSD slot is a must.

Marco Gomes1 says:

Call Samsung and have them put WP on the S5. Oh, and tell them to get a different back cover cause that cellulite looking back cover is fugly:-)

DJCBS says:

+2 for the Z2 with WP. Perhaps Microsoft managed to convince Sony to reuse the Z2 hardware on a WP soon.

d3ac0n says:

Lumia 1520 with wacom digitizer and a side by side app multitasking

Would love stylus input on my 1520. Biggest thing its missing in my opinion. Really don't use my Venue8Pro as much since I picked up the 1520. When I do use the tablet I'm always wishing it had the word flow keyboard like my 1520.

JBWonton says:

Green Lumia 930 with an SD card slot... Available to the US.

Jakeway says:

930 mixed with 1020 and an added SD card.

Tense says:

A high end 925-like flagship with an SD slot. And please don't make it a fucking phablet.

Hoppman says:

Exactly!!!!  Might as well buy a 2520 and hold it to your ear.

Marco Gomes1 says:

An HTC M8 running Windows phone would be close, or a Sony Z2 compact :-)

IceDree says:

+1 for the htc

IstyV says:

Ohhhh yeeeeaaaahhhhhhh HTC ONE M8 running WP8.1

jemartti says:

Honestly, all I want is a remake of the Lumia 800 with WP8. Just stick the 925 guts inside, put in a higher res screen, but leave the form factor and design exactly as-is. Perfection in design.

tal99 says:

Exactly! All the newer WPs are way to big and the Lumia 800 design is still one of the best besides Lumia 925. So alternativly a slightly smaller Version of the Lumia 925 (for me ideal size would be in between 800 and 925)

Spec-Wise the Icon/930 is fine (but Glance is a must - I'd never buy a phone without Glance anymore). Of course a smaller screen can come with a lower res (keep the res of the 925).

Additional improvements: SD Slot and a bigger battery

 

Blu3V3nom07 says:

8 GB RAM

Unlimited Cloud Storage

Plays all Xbox One games through Now service.

5.3 inch

Microsoft Mobile

Daakkon says:

The form factor of the 920 with 3gb ram, 1080p display, and a better battery. Maybe the snapdragon 805 too. If they can get a higher mp camera in there it would be the icing on the cake. Also having a decent 'dust proof' ffc would be nice. The 920 to me is the perfect phone, but shave some weight off it and I would be in love.

Technoloay says:

A 5" FHD amoled screen with a 41 MPx shooter; QC SD805; 3000+ mah battery with SD card. I'd like the device to be a tank of 14 mm thickness, because the Galaxy K Zoom doesn't deserve its thickness at all! Is it that hard?

audidiablo says:

Lumia 930, 64GB internal w/ micro SD slot, 41mp cam, and decent or obnoxious ffc. If you're going to be as obnoxiously awesome as that 41mp you may as well go all out! And glance screen!!!

Akash294 says:

A metalic body with snapdragon quad core processor 2gb ram 5" 1080p display pedometer 20mp camera and then you just gotta take my money!!

meddyrainzo says:

A phablet with a stylus running a combination of WRT and WP8.1(RT gestures, picture password, split screen, glance, transparent tiles, Cortana, action center, WP apps).
I would buy this in a heartbeat

Who cares about specs? I want a phone/tablet hybrid because phones suck for web and video content! I want something like a Nexus 7, with a good variation of bezel and screen, to fit the biggest possible screen into a smaller body, without covering the screen with one's hand. I'd also love to run full Windows 8.1 with SMS/Call and 4G LTE, so I can do everything I need, with a device that fits in my pocket.

purevibz says:

5in all metal Lumia 930 in silver with 32 gigs and SD  card slot.

b23h says:

nice    (and of course a Glance capable display)

xchaser says:

The looks of the 925 Black in a 5" with 4k video and a SD slot. on T-Mobile.

Lumia 930 with 3200 mah battery and glace!

tomoakley says:

My killer device?
5" 1080p screen (not too unweildy),
Looks like the Lumia 925
41MP pureview camera w/ HAAC mics
SD card slot (or min 32gb inbuilt storage)
QI charging preferable but not a deal breaker.
Snapdragon 800 processor (or better)
Stereo speakers of the quality of HTC's boom sound.
Enough battery life to get me through a day of medium-heavy use.
Matte polycarbonate on the back
5MP front facing camera or better

The design of the 720, the screen size and specs of the Icon, SD card support, 20MP camera with slow motion and glance support.

Lumia 820 with 768 x 1280 display and Gorilla Glass 3, quadcore CPU, 2GB of ram, 16 GB of internal memory and a ~2000mAh battery. That's the dream!

BritDad says:

Give it a 5 inch screen and mid range price and I'll buy two of them. I love my 820.

bawajose says:

I would be excited to see a Lumia 725 or a 730.... the Lumia 720 is an awsome looking device!!!

blob741 says:

Same here. I favored a 920 over a 720 because of screen definition and pureview, but a 730 with the same design, 1gb of RAM, 4g, 720/768p screen and an 8/12 mpix pureview camera would be a great refresh and might be sold at a reasonable price.

Battery life should remain great of course and wireless charging would be nice also.

HTC m8 with much better camera and wp8.1 smaller bezels and physical buttons. + fingerprint scanner well implemented like iPhone, not crappy Samsung implementation.

I am pretty much the same, just a few tweaks:
5 inch screen is fine
805 Snapdragon
20MP camera or an improved 1020 one
5MP (never use them, but might as well have it)
64 GB onboard (well why not)
3 MB RAM
3300 mAh battery
Qi charging
IR blaster
Matte yellow or aluminum
Micro SD (128GB)
Those improved mics for recording
Same screen tech as 920

Forc3 says:

+9DREAMY but I gues by 3 MB you mean 3GB? :P

OHardy says:

Waterproof Full body aluminium with 925 design & specs of 930.

 

cannon#WP says:

Give me the HTC One M8 (or a new HTC Titan with bleeding edge specs) with Nokia's OIS & pureview tech and I'd be happy for YEARS.

Lumia 1520 with a 5" screen would be perfect for me
