    Mine looks like the vast majority of current devices, rectangular, 5-6" screen, minimal bezel, removable battery preferably, USB-C, fingerprint reader (at least), wireless charging...nothing earth shattering.
    The big thing would be it needs to run an OS that has some semblance of committed long term support.

    Dream Windows phone:

    • Folding screen
    • 5.5"-6" size when folded
    • Removable battery
    • Full Win10 capabilities
    • Continuum
    • Great camera
    • Fingerprint Scanner (on back)
    • Tap to pay (NFC)
    • Under $800
    • Pen Stylus
    • Xbox companion
    • Fix or beat the App Gap
    • Wireless charging
    • Augmented Reality


    I'm two (2) months away from going Android. Hell, I'll take a unified commitment to a mobile platform from Microsoft right about now. The silence is deafening!!

    my dream windows phone

    metal phone very much like cancelled 960
    headphone jack and usb c on BOTTOM of device
    absolutely NO ON SCREEN BUTTONS, my dream windows phone would have dedicated back windows and search/cortana buttons, capacative keys that DO NOT EAT screen real estate
    stellar to borderline brilliant front facing camera for selfies, on par with that of the iphone
    also front facing flash an absolute must, america is full of vain people, want to compete? do what i just said about the front facer cam
    trash microsoft/lumia camera algorithms and adopt apple iphones quick snap for 12 to 20mp rear cam
    the iphone simply takes the shot done
    no plastic phone i want this phone as a metal phone
    on board storage options no more sd card in put 32gb 64gb and 128gb
    different colors of phone as well

    Enough with small iterations
    We saw it often as Microsoft's future vision stuff. This should be the next windows mobile device.
    A big wow factor that gives other people a real craving to get something new.
    I know it's seems far too advanced. Just like when the first iPhone got out....
    I am not an apple fan, but I admit the Guy (Jobs) knew how to "push the envelope".

    Forget the hardware (that will take care of itself). I want the next gen windows phone to have robust developer support, and not the half a** approach of the past. No dev support means dead platform regardless of how fancy the hardware is

    One that has been taken round the back of the shed and put out of its misery.

    Microsoft need to man up, admit the hard truths and stop decieving users, until then, trust is gone.

    The Lumia 1520 same specs (yes, yes just 1080p display that looks awesome even on 6'' and does wonders for the battery) maybe with slightly updated cpu, type-c would be a plus mostly for the charging part, oled screen should be a requirement on every wphone ever created, maybe front stereo speakers or fingerprint scanner but most importantly and only reason I had to get a new one, no ghost touch issues! This is the one and only fundamental flaw and structural defect of this device.
    Same gorgeous phone.
    Hell I'd even chose the capacitive buttons over less screen viewport every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
    I don't care at all for gimmicks like foldable phones, pens, keyboards, aluminum/glass materials and 4k displays.
    And no the HP is nowhere near Lumia's beauty.
    And my mozo-ed 950xl is a sad excuse of a phone next to my now broken 1520.
    I'd kickstart the **** out of a rerelease of the best windows phone ever made.
    That's all I ever wanted and I'll never love another phone the same way.
    Dream device u say? I almost had it and it could last forever if not faulty by design.
    Noone in the history of mankind ever loved, loves and will love this or any other piece of hardware more than me.

    I love windows phone, whatever they say. I just love how it is like a mini-PC on your pocket. I remember having a Lumia 640XL, it is great phone! Just loving it simply because it acts like your mini pc wherever i go. And the best thing about windows phone, i can plug it on my pc and view the cleanest file explorer, and transfer files just like as USB did. Iphone can't do that. Android phones can, but the file system they've got is a mess allover.

    I want the next windows phone to be compact, have big screens, not a metallic one but can have some metals around, running c-shell. It can have a usb type C for future proofing, but what i don't like about usb type C is that, the ports of my dad's iphone are loose because of that. whenever he charges his phone, it disrupts whenever someone just move near it.

    Aside from i said above, i want the next windows phone to have a budget friendly version and an enterprise/business phone. no more midranger. just two editions. the midrange will be filled by the OEMs.

    Iris Scanner for budget phones can be a big welcome. :D

    Mine isn't a phone at all.
    It's a PC/Tablet that can take my calls.

    Basically a 7-inch Surface Pro. Same spec tiers, LTE, Telephony, Surface Pen, $799 starting.
    I'll take the $1299 256gb 8gb tier. Please and thank you.

    A camera worthy as a followup to the Lumia 1020

    The rest of the specs will just be in line with other flagships. Sorry, dual lens cameras just aren't doing it for me.

    I'll make it easy. Just take a Samsung s8 or Huawei p10 (or any other flagship device you like(I like p10)) and put windows 10 on it (with c-shell), tweak the hardware to make it truly compatible with windows and... Voila!

    I would start with a top of the line Qualcom processor but then work with AMD to modify it with a more powerful GPU and memory bus. I would then fit it with 8gb of fast Ram and at least 32 gb of fast pci bus memory with options to have up to 1tb. I would have 2x USB Type C connectors (one on top and one on bottom) that would support both USB 3.1 and thunderbolt. I would allow expansion by micro Sd cards. The screen would be a 6" 18/9 1440/2880 resolution screen running at 90hz with support for freesync. Underneath the screen would be a fingerprint reader. the bezels would be minimal but flat, with only a small chin and forehead with enough room to house dual camera sensors and forward facing speakers. The back would have at least 24mpx dual 3D/AR/VR capable camera sensors directly in the center of the phone. It would have all the sensors and support all major wireless standards as well as the Xbox controller wireless standard and IR. It would support world wide network bands. It would have perfectly square corners and be completely flat on both sides (no camera hump) It wouldn't necessarily be thin, but not too thick either. I would have optional accessories such as micro Xbox controller, and 3D HMD adapter, and super portable keyboard mouse combo. It would be capable of AR like the iPhone but also mounted in HMD it would act like a Hololense. It would run Full windows on Arm and be capable of display a full Virtual desktop for on the go productivity as well as legacy Xbox games as well as new games developed to take advantage of the mobile Xbox device. I would also include Android emulation but provide a path for developers to convert them to native applications. I would market this device as both a mobile Xbox and the ultimate productivity device. The device would also pair with an actual Xbox for higher fidelity games and allow multiple users to play AR/VR experiences with One Xbox and Multiple Window Mobile devices for group reality scenarios. The same tech could be used with PCs as the hub for group reality scenarios there as well. The overall device would be waterproof but would feature a changeable back plate like the 950. The default back plate would be more premium but optional back plates such as ruggedized ones, leather ones, ones with included keyboards, ones that are game focused, etc.. would be available from MS directly. There would be a special accessory connector built in for the back shells that would extend capabilities to the shell. They could provide different input methods, tools, or larger batteries. It would also support the surface stylus. The edges of device would have no physical buttons but would be pressure and touch sensitive. To lower the volume you would just drag your finger down one side of the device. to turn it off would squeeze it in the middle. To take a picture you would squeeze it on the left or right. You should be able to program these reactions.

    We r the windows lumia fans & we r not using any other windows mobile . I love Microsoft Lumia and i request u to bring back lumia 960....series continue bcoz lumia is the successfully phone in the market last previous launch Microsoft Lumia 950 950XL superb design nd powerful phone soo o suggest u to continue lumia series to long lasting battery also and lumia camera is the best camera in the world lumia 950 camera beat iphone7plus, htc10, google pixel, sony, Mi etc.. If u release new surface phone foldable phone we r not buy that surface phone and no one can buy surface phone bcoz design should not better for surface phone. All our the world Microsoft Lumia 950 phone 90% people r using and 2,3% Hp windows phone using. Soo u think why people r using lumia, they have money to buy hp windows phone but lumia is the best windows smartphone so that is why people using lumia. I m also using lumia windows 730, 950, 950xl. Last one is plzz launched all apps just like android have all apps nd better then windows apps. Apps locker application not realise for windows mobile.

    I personally would like a Surface Phone that had a 5.7 inch display that takes up almost all of the screen, like the Galaxy S8 or the Xiaomi Mix or the Essential Phone. The OnePlus 5's dual cameras on the back, and a fingerprint sensor below the cameras. A 3.5mm headphone jack and 2 USB-C ports. Pen support and an optimized improved version of Windows 10 Mobile. As for the specs, 6GB of RAM, 1TB of internal storage, and two microSD slots. The battery should be 3500mAh and would have a 1080p AMOLED display. 😀
