    You can't get a decent 3G signal in many places... And I mean places that aren't in the middle of nowhere. There is little point moving up as a user if you aren't going to be able to use it.

    I agree. In many (populated) places I'm still struggling with only an E (Edge) or G (3G) connection never mind H (HSDPA+) or 4G etc.

    I wish they would invest in battery technology and make a Smart Phones last more than half a day; instead of having to disable most features (effectively making it a dump-phone) to make it last longer. Or at least have decent power/CPU management (without the need of a rooted ROM).

    These high speed CPUs in Smart Phones is like having a fast sports car with only a 1 gallon petrol tank!
