    Hello All,

    Lets play a little devils advocate. This is a simple thing and here are the rules:

    1. Must be a Hardware Change.
    2. Must be a change that can actually take place.
    3. Does NOT include the screen or Multi-Touch.
    4. Does NOT CPU, RAM, Memory, OS, etc...
    *** Can ONLY make/suggest "1" Change and Justification would be nice ***

    Those are the basics for which the game will be played. Lets just have some collective fun and see where it goes...

    My Suggestion: Change the port cover over the Micro USB port. Replace it with the Port Cover used on the Smasung Captivate (The Sliding Door).

    My Justification: I don't know about you, but every time I use that flimsy door, I feel it is just going Break and Fall Off. Hate it and Hate all doors that use this clumsy cover (To which there are a LOT that use it, I guess it is cheap and saves them money).....

    Who's Next..........

    I will second that one
    but I would have changed the battery cover, very flimsy, my daughter dropped my phone once.. not the best start I know.. but now the back cover will not fit properly.. probably due to the fall but it feels cheap..

    I agree with what gunny said, it really annoys me, I get scared its going to come off every time.

    I would maybe add a tv-out feature like few other phones :) I know that DLNA will be available with the 2.1 update but I only have one DLNA box that only connects to the DivX Connected software server :(

    If I could change just one thing....

    It would be the screen for one that doesn't show greasy finger marks... who knew that my fingers were that grubby! (I have tried anti-reflective protector but didn't like it, made screen look sort of pixelated)

    This is one thing that really grinds my gears! I'm thinking about getting of of them anti-fingerprint screen protectors but have not seen any positive reviews for them yet

    I would move the powersocket to the bottom. I'm using it as satnav in the car and the phone is positioned above the power outlet so it bends the plug.

    Since I'm sure not everyone will post here I make another wish for them. I'd like a proper xenon flash. It shouldn't be very difficult and it's amazing that isn't included in the first place.

    I would change the way the battery cover needs to be pried off, I keep thinking I am going to break something every time I have done that.

    The other two items, USB port cover and the screen has been covered already.

    Better Camera. I've taken a lot of pics, they turn out decent, but I honestly think iPhone 4's do a better job from what I've seen - likely due to a bigger lense/better sensor.

    A touch screen which i can use when rain drops get on it, without the screen going crazy tapping random stuff.

    My problem, as charlyee has already said, is that the cover is very hard to get off. Are you sure your pressing in the right places to fit it? It sometimes looks like it's on, but then a firmer press fully 'clicks' it into position.

    I agree with Gurba - the thing I'd like to change is the power location to the bottom of the phone. It would make using it as a sat nav a lot easier.

    Not even raindrops, just have fingers slightly wet and the screen go crazy

    USB Charger on bottom would be perfect also

    After proposing to my fiancee trying to text my mum was difficult. Sweaty hands from nervousness + excitement = never ever going to be able to text on the X10

    I would like to be able to empty my pictures folder (DCIM) and not have the new pictures start at 0001.jpg, but where the last picture was.

    WOW, I'm really Thankful of everyone that has turned out and shared their concepts of the future (Wishful thinking, maybe, maybe not). I just wanted to say Thanks and lets keep the ball rolling. There are a lot more folks out there, so come on in and jot down a concept while your visiting!!

    Hey Wook

    had a much closer look, one of the smaller tabs was bent slightly,, pushed that back and its back on properly.. but they could have done this one better

    Tough decision,

    I am stuck between whether I would want there to be a LED Flash instead of just a light and having a metal back battery cover.
