UPhone - The Ultimate Smartphone

The smartphone market is booming. It seems like almost everyone makes a smartphone nowadays, however there are always a few companies that have something special that differentiates them from the rest, the flagship companies.

But there Is a "Problem", all the companies try to be the best and while doing so try to sabotage the competition, the outcome is a fight over patents and such.
The companies seem like kids fighting over a lollipop sometimes.

I want to present you a vision of mine, the perfect smartphone, taking inspiration from the smartphone companies that are, in my opinion, the best out there.

I present you:

The camera of a smartphone is one of the most important aspects for me and in my opinion Apple, hands down, produces the best smartphone cameras out there.

Often they hinder their potential because they always also want to produce a super thin device, give them more room to work with and this is what I think they would be able to do.

With the processor, again, Apple makes the best ones in my opinion. They always are very power efficient, run at very good temperatures and are powerful.

However the coprocessor is modified to include a feature Motorola introduced with the Moto X, touch less speech recognition. Combined with Apple's motion coprocessor we have the dual core M9.

For more headroom I thought a bump in cores and RAM would be nice.

The Battery was always Apple's biggest problem, but not because they use lousy batteries, they just use way too small batteries because once again, they always want to produce a thin device. Combine a huge battery with Apple's energy efficiency and you'll be amazed.

Turbo-charging and wireless charging are getting more popular so it just has to be implemented, since it doesn't really have a huge downside.

The connector was always a big debate. Micro USB was just bad but everyone had it and Apple's lightning connector was for Apple devices only.
USB-C is out now and looks very promising.
This will be the new, truly universal connector.

The storage should be pretty self explanatory.
There is no Micro SD slot.
That thing is just ancient.

The digital assistant is a mix of all three "big players" out there, Cortana (Microsoft), Siri (Apple) and Google Now (Google). Together they may be actually useful.

The display is made by Samsung since the displays of the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6 are just hands down the best.

No 1440p. There is no benefit in having a resolution that high. 1080p is the sweet spot.

Gorilla Glass 4 promises to resist drops directly on the display. No question in why to use it I guess.

The Active display was introduced by Motorola with the Moto X and enhanced in the 2nd generation Moto X. I think this is a really neat and useful feature and I was a fan of it the moment I tried it.

Let's face it, there is no damn reason to not mount the speakers on the front of the device.
HTC was the first and is still the best in that sector. They owned their place in the perfect Phone.

(If you are wondering about the design of the speakers, this design was used in the HTC Desire eye.)

Customisation is a big deal in my opinion and Motorola shows best how it's done.

The Materials range from anodised aluminum to plastic over to leather and wood, enabling the creation of a really unique device.

Creating an ergonomic design which is also beautiful is essential for the perfect phone, but it's very hard to achieve.

Motorola shows hows it's done.

Their whole lineup has almost the same ergonomic form and I love it.
It looks beautiful and just feels right in the hand.

Just a quick size comparison to an iPhone 6.

A quick rundown of the size and specs.

The OS is a very personal choice and it should be up to you how you want to use a phone.
No OS is "the best", so they just learn from each other and merge together to UPhone OS.

Thank you for reading this post, I put a lot of effort and love into it.
This is just a design idea and is very unlikely to happen for real.

Please share if you enjoyed it.

Best regards,
