    Phone which does not draw attention to itself is less of a theft risk.

    A "stealth phone"

    Settling in what way? They asked if I prefered 4GB + 128GB or 6GB + 64GB. I don't even have 32GB used on my OP2 so I much rather have more RAM than more storage.

    As for faster rather than more, they didn't speak about speed, but OP2 already uses the fastest RAM there was at the time of launch so I'm guessing the same is going to happen with their next flagship.

    Good questions this week Adam.

    I hope our answers help make your products appeal more to the public.

    I too would like to see a removable battery, and fast charging. 6GB of RAM is just an expense that could be used for a better screen or sound, anyway, it's not the size of the RAM that is important it how you utilise it.

    The other thing that I would like to see is phones becoming more environmentally friendly, most people keep their phone for two years max, do we really need to have aluminium for a product that has such a short lifespan? For example cork is light, impact resistant, can withstand high temperatures; and is good enough for the space shuttle; could be researched further as a casing product. A bit way out I know, but hey, you asked for our thoughts.

    What I want:

    1: I want the OP logo on the back to light up, and in different colors. Enough that it can be used as a notification for messages when the device is face down.
    2: I want an E-Ink flip cover. The cover clip would clip on to the back and flip open like the first page of a book.
    3: 4GB RAM, 128GB or 6GB RAM, 64GB storage ?? NO!! 6GB RAM and 128GB storage with SD card. And dual sim. And extra LEDs and ICBM capable launcher and someone to make me a sammich! mmmm sammich...

    Same here. OPX and the Samsung 7s are among the best designs out there

    I'd rather they don't cut corners elsewhere to bring us more RAM,which is what happened to the OP2 to add a GB of RAM. I'd rather 4GB 64GB and a boatload of sensors (NFC,FM,IR,5ghz ac WiFi etc)

    I agree, save your money on the RAM. Happy with 4GB, and prefer SD card to increased internal storage

    I don't want the finger print sensor sunk into the phone. I want it to be part of the screen; whole screen being completely flat. That would be so nice like how the front of the OPO looks but including the fingerprint sensor.

    Didn't submit it when I filled out the form, but maybe a water resistant feature would be of benefit. I really like some of the metal cased phones coming out. But I wonder about signal loss. 2 spare phones I have are a BLU Vivo XL and a BLU Vivo 5. The Vivo 5 is an all metalic design, but it gets a worse signal than the Vivo XL.

    Wow, nice survey. Exciting indeed. Still hoping for a great low light camera sensor.

    Good questions, i'm waiting for OP3 to get released, now hurry before i get the S7 edge, its a good looking phone. What i hate about is that they only sell the 32GB in EU and i refuse to pay so much for only 32GB. Also the non removable battery is a turn off for me. I think all phones should have the possibility to offer that.

    No matter what nothing can beat iPhone 6s in terms of overall user experience, battery life, software performance, consistency, reliability, quality and also updates support.
