So HTC has upped the game with its One series but just what is next for smartphones? Whats going to be the next killer features??

b) HUD screens- yes maybe I have seen the Avengers for the third time, but HUDs are super cool. Now what we need is a phone that can project info on to say a table which could change the business market big time.

c) Well WhatsApp has really changed the way people talk. The cross platform app is wonderful. However like most 3rd party apps, they lack full integration with phones aka SMS. What we need is a hybrid of this sort of app and a phone becoming one as they. Its possible. Its software. It can be done.....
