    the mi4s should be like this:

    – dual network gsm 4G LTE and cdma evdo rev.a/b (that can be used globally not in china only), customizable single or dual on and you can set phone calls, messages, and data to use which network, gsm or cdma, how cool is that!? is this even possible to be implemented???

    – latest mobile prcessor (qualcomm snapdragon 1000 ???)

    – replaceable battery with bigger capacity (4000mah?) with protection from overcharging

    – microsd slot (up to 64gb)

    – 16/32/64 gb ROM

    – 3gb ram

    – better camera, both rear and front

    – the same dirac hd audio or even the better one

    – 5,3-5,5″ FHD IPS OGS sharp igzo retina display with gorila glass 4 (???) or flexible glass (???) and with thinner bezels, the screen size is bigger but the overall size of the phone (and the design) is more or less the same as MI3, or just a bit bigger, remember the trend of android flagship phones are getting bigger in screen size! the market likes it!

    – water+dust proof

    – alumunium magnesium body (no cheap galactical plastic)

    – MioS with google play compatibility (can run android apps n games), you can make independent os, but you should “catch up” to latest android version, by implementing its newest features in the MioS

    – other features that can be found in MI3 (5G wifi, glonass GPS, usb otg, etc etc)

    – pricing starting from $370+ for the 16gb version (or $320++ if possible )

    – international availabilty (worldwide shipping???)

    hopefully lei jun and bin ln xian sheng and uncle hugo read this and make it come true! please make this monstrous beast!

    the power of dream!!!
