    OnePlus 6 is very close.

    Improvments needed:
    Larger battery to get rid of the back camera bump, make it flush.
    Dual Front facing speakers.
    Vapor Chamber for cooling.
    VOOC Charging as the new WARP Charging.

    I would actually like a smaller phone with an amazing battery life. a 5 inch display phone, with good screen resolution and stock Android experience.

    I feel with the edge to edge display, 6+ inch screen is not really required. something more compact and easy to use with a single hand.

    also, glass back is pretty useless, would love a brushed aluminum or a rubberized back.

    oh, and please don't forget the headphone jack.

    I think Oneplus has been doing pretty well in most areas, for example, the snapdragon processors, the headphone jack, the storage and RAM and the cameras.

    Improvements I'd like to see for my dream phone:
    -Notchless display (I'd take bezels over notches any day of the week, though a completely bezel-less screen is even more sexy)
    -IP68 waterproofing
    -Speakers could be better
    -Screen improvements, this might just be me and it might not be something that's even possible to fix, but I get quite annoyed with my own reflection when I'm watching videos on my phone. Also, 100 Hz and/or 2k displays would be something I'd definetly be interested in.

    Hello to all the Spanish speakers !! What do you think if we make this thread to talk about all the failures we see in our O + 6 and the possible improvements that we think could make or even introduce new things. I would start with:

    - Battery: I think it happens to us all, the battery is discharged quickly.


    - Screen: in my opinion I think they could calibrate it better to have more vivid colors and more sharpness.
    * Higher brightness?


    - Alarms: I think you should be able to choose a different volume for each alarm, since the volume to wake up is not the same as to remember something during the afternoon.


    - Camera: I think the camera lacks focus. On the other hand, you should be able to select the resolution size of photos, since only the resolution of the video can be changed.
    * Would it be possible to make video with the front camera at 1080 60fps?
    * Video with front and rear camera in 2k?
    * Record videos in 4k 60p more than 5 minutes ?.
    * Improve video stabilization?
    * Option of Focus on Moving Objects?


    - Bluetooth audio tuner


    - Add a music player

    On top of the obvious internal SOC and ram upgrades I would like:

    -Stereo speakers
    -The ability to use the phone underwater without any worries of damage (I had a holiday to the coast and really wanted to get some awesome underwater shots but didn't want to risk damage)
    -All screen with no notch (after seeing the OPPO Find X I can say that design looks amazing)
    -A 3 rear camera system that has the ability to get at least 3x optical zoom, Wide angle and the standard shooter.

    To be honest the OnePlus 6 is pretty amazing but the addition of the above mentioned features would really make this phone something special.

    Rubber rear side like Moto X style or sand rear or any other but not glass which slide in hands. Factory invest time for polishing that glass in shop looks glossy but finally end user hide this in pvc condom. do better and better grip on rear side and edges. Try where is possible do Ois ,audio jack. try release 1_2 phones by year but with fantastic software support. always do notification LED. Don't copy Apple follow own way .

    My dream Smartphone consists of the following things:
    1) Top of the line processor that is best in class performance and energyefficiency wise.
    2) Hi resolution front facing stereo speakers AND a headphonejack
    3)A bright, high resolution, notchless, superAMOLED or IPS display, with present but slim bezels
    4)An excellent immage sensor with Carl Zeiss or Leica optics with the google Pixel camera software.
    5)A 4000 mAh battery with dash-charge
    6)Android One with an unlocked bootloader
    7)Dual Sim and Micro SD support
    8)Nokia like build quality and all of it in a Sony Xperia XZ2 Form factor (I would even sacrifice the 4000mAh for only 2900mAh as long as the phone stays below 5" screendiagonal)

    Why would your 'dream phone' have so much customisation / uncertainty? Surely if you could pick anything at all, you'd select the better of the two options for each category.

    If we're talking about 'dream' phone, let's dream big... I'd like a phone which doesn't just get the same chipset as its competitors, and wins because of its light OS...

    Let's work with Qualcomm and produce a bespoke OnePlus chipset, beyond that available to the competition.

    Let's remove the notch, and have a camera behind the screen, and similar with a fingerprint sensor (call me old school, but I preferred it in the front).

    Let's ditch the glass back which (while it is utterly beautiful) seems too fragile and needs covering. Let's think outside the box for different textures, materials and give a truly unique OnePlus experience. Work with companies who specialise in design and materials to create something magic!

    Lets have a camera experience which doesn't need to be compared to iPhone or Samsung equivalents on hundreds y of youtube videos, let's have a camera which speaks for itself, and truly stands out... Do something which the competition hasn't even dreamt of yet! Similarly, let's work alongside the top camera companies to make something which isn't even being considered by the competition!

    Let's have an audio experience like no other... Work with a specialist speaker producer, and create something truly special! Again don't just assume we know best, let's bring in the specialists and make it incredible!

    Let's not have our ideas have a ceiling, Let's do it all and more!

    Also, if this ever does happen, let's call it the OnePlus Gary!
