    Hey everyone,

    I was curious, because I know we all have phones we've loved, phones we've hated, and phones we're somewhere in between on. So I'm wondering, if you could meld all the best aspects of different Windows Phones into one, perfect phone for the upcoming WP8.1 OS to run on, what features would you pick, and why?
    I.E. 1020 Camera, Icon screen size, 920 design, etc.

    925 Body
    2 GB ram
    20 MP camera
    4.5 -5.0 screen size (1080p of course)
    on screen navigation controls
    Quad band Radios
    MicroSD support
    once it has a Micro SD card minimum internal storage to be 16 GB would be fine

    That's all I ask am modest :)

    For (allegedly) better battery life more than anything. I could use Glance then.

    My dream phone would be a successor to the 1020:

    - Lumia 1020 41mp camera module or maybe the Pelican camera instead.
    - 920 style body, but thinner (if possible), with a gloss white finish.
    - 5" - 5.5" 1080p AMOLED screen.
    - Snapdragon 800 or successor.
    - 64gb of internal storage.
    - as much RAM as the phone needed to run flawlessly (if that's only 2gb, fine with me).

    If I could get my hands on this, I'd be in for the long haul, without any interest in getting another phone. For my needs, I can't imagine needing 64-bit cpu, 2k display, 8-core cpu, etc. I'd like to think that we've hit a plateau with regards to the spec wars.

    Amoled has crappy colors, but it makes glance screen power efficient.

    I'm always jelly of my wifes 720, it fits perfectly in my hand, and the battery is amazing.
    I guess all I want is a 720 with 41MP camera and 2GB RAM of course to support the camera. No SD card (there's just trouble with it) I'd rather opt for 64GB built-in storage.
    I don't care much for resolution, 480p is enough, but I wouldn't say no to 768p as long as it doesn't affect the battery.

    Really the only reason I went for the 925 is PureView. It's still an awesome phone though. Only complaints are kinda short battery and displayed whites are very blue.

    I love my Lumia 920. The form factor, the whole 9. I would love it if Microsoft would push out a Lumia 920 "Enhanced" with Windows 8.1 and just a few more horses then the current model has. Same 32 gig of memory and 2 gigs of ram. Improved camera, QI support etc. I would get one and be happy. I'm not finding anything so far that has made a move for me.
