Which "missing" feature do you want the most on the next iPhone [Poll]

Which "missing" feature do you want the most on the next iPhone?

Which "missing" feature do you want the most on the next iPhone? It's written "missing" very deliberately, since specifically we're talking about features that some of the latest competitor devices have brought with them to market recently. Apple doesn't make a habit of 'playing catchup' but there's a bunch of cool stuff out there that a whole lot of us would love to see included in the next iPhone.

Motorola, for example, has recently introduced a handful of devices that all pack some pretty interesting things. The new Droid Maxx, for example, has a great honkin' battery stuffed in the back that promises a full 48-hour battery life. Then, along came their Moto X with an always listening functionality for its voice-controlled, natural language interface. We've previously run polls to gather your thoughts on all of these, but now we want to see how they rank alongside some other cool features.

How big would your perfect iPhone be? [Poll]

How big would your perfect iPhone be?

Generally speaking, the size of smartphones is still increasing, so how big would your perfect iPhone be? We're talking hardware today on Talk Mobile, and one of the most noticeable parts of the spec race is display size. Until the iPhone 5 came along, we had just one choice, the 3.5-inch display, on whichever variant of the iPhone we decided to use. The iPhone 5 changed all that, and for the first time the display size increased. But, it only increased as far as 4-inches, and at launch competing smartphones were hitting the market with 4.7-inch and above displays.
