    How would you build the perfect phone using pieces from other phones (no imaginary or future tech)? Here is what mine would be--

    1. Screen - HD screen like the Droid with the coating the iPhone 3GS has to reduce finger prints

    2. 1 GHz snapdragon

    3. Body shape/size of the Eris

    4. Android, but with the following improvements:
    a. stock launcher would have all the features of Helix Launcher 2
    b. stock messaging app would have all the features of Handcent
    c. apps would be as well designed as they are in Apple's app store (facebook, etc)
    d. push notifications like iPhone for sports, IM, etc.
    e. a way to rent movies like iTunes for the iPhone

    5. Flash (it's been seen running on Nexus so it fits the criteria of the post)

    6. 8MP camera with flash

    7. 8GB internal storage, no memory card needed (I just use streaming music, and picasa so I don't really keep much on my phone at all)

    8. Long lasting battery that will last all day even making phone calls, etc

    9. 1GB RAM

    10. noise cancelling mic

    That's about it. That would keep me happy for at least a year. Some things that are on some new phones that I don't care about are:

    1. Front facing camera
    2. excess memory (over 8GB)

    So what about everyone else?

    Right now the perfect device for me is the Evo. Nice big bright screen, Wimax 4G, affordable Sprint plan, HDMI out, front cam, newest version of Android, etc.

    Other than that, the only things I would change are maybe making the device thinner, improving battery tech so you could get a few days on a charge, and better screen tech along the lines of Super-AMOLED.

    Obviously "Perfect" would be something unattainable with current tech but then again...I remember posting our "dream phone" specs on PPCGeeks a year or two ago and it pretty much matches the Evo and Incredible class of devices.

    Perfect always advances, that's why I said using current tech.

    20 years ago the "perfect" phone was just one that would fit in your pocket that you could take with you. 10 years ago "perfect" was a PDA and phone together. 10 years from now "perfect" may be a phone that lasts a week without charging and types what you think.

    For example, a phone could last a month without charging now using nano batteries, its just only about 10 people in the world could afford to buy it right now in its current state of development.

    3. Can a 1.5 GHz processor fit in a phone yet? If so this would be my choice also

    4. Is Android skipping from 2.1 to 2.6? Is Gingerbread already being worked on? What is going to be added?

    5. It's coming eventually, I also am really looking forward to LTE, but for me the biggest reason is hopefully when I unlock a phone I can use it on ANY carrier and not worry about compatibility

    12. Thats a given
