Here's what our readers would do if they had the most powerful smartphone on Earth

Here's what our readers would do if they had the most powerful smartphone on Earth
A few days ago, we asked you to imagine that you have the most-powerful and awesome smartphone on Earth - the ultimate smartphone! We wanted to see what you guys would actually use all that power for, and, unsurprisingly, we got some very creative answers! We didn't think of this idea just like that, though. It was born from our examination of the current mobile landscape, where we continuously see better and better smartphones, which, however, are being used for the same stuff as the smartphones from the past. Not that this is bad, of course, but we wanted to see if there's something revolutionary that users have on their minds, waiting until a bold company comes out and delivers it to them. Well, some answers were quite revolutionary indeed, although not necessarily in the same way we expected, but the fact is most of them were quite funny! We've selected the best ones for you to check out here...


If you had the most powerful smartphone on Earth, what would you do with it?


g2a5b0e: That's an easy one. Brag to everyone about how much better my phone is than theirs. :-P


sgtdisturbed47: The hardware in today's flagship phones have already surpassed the software in terms of what's required to operate the software to the fullest. Now it's all about internet speed, networking speed, screen size, and battery life (with a ton of silly fluff features sprinkled on). What would I do with a 5" phone with super fast performance and a battery that lasts longer than 48 hours with lots of talking, web surfing, games, and video? I'd wake up, because that's just a dream.


wendygarett: what would I do with it? I will surfing phonearena.com for 24 hours XDXD


OpTiMuS_BlAcK: INSTALL ALL THE 3D GAMES!


ilia1986: It's not about power or specs or screen size or even OS. It's about usefulness. For all the billion advances made in smartphones, they still cannot totally replace even a 200$ cheapish netbook! We need to figure out how to improve smartphones in terms of productivity first and foremost. The goal is to have a smartphone which is as comfortable to use as a PC. That includes editing complex tables in excel, writing a 300 page word document, designing a complex model in autocad or maya, etc etc. Sure, an insanely great CPU, gigantic screen size, billion megapixel camera is all good, but it doesn't really improve productivity too much.


bobfreking55: hmm... "MOST" indicates there is only one. so I'd sell it for research purposes and reverse engineering. I don't need that much power. It might get stolen... I'd sell it to Google for the next Nexus or something.


deccanhitter: Its no good It is just to show off I have the most powerful phone and so do the others who own the phone.Dual or Quad is the same as long as it serves the same purpose.


Naitto: In a perfect world, to be-able to use NFC to pay for everything from vending machines, stores purchases to any kind of travel. “Would need a top notch camera for the travel”. To keep up on work productivity, whether it is charts, graphs, email, or real time conferences. To be-able to watch movies, read books, find news from around the world with no hesitation. Security, that this phone would work for me and only me.


DWillyEfect: World domination


remixfa: the most powerful phone on earth? Yea, Id put it in my pocket and pull it out to text. Great use of tech. lol


justme: Get a notice from VZW that I hit my data limit like I did today. :(

Everyone missed the point, you should "patent it" instead.

I didn't know being the most powerful smartphone can be patented...

lol at the message from VZW and world domination. i'm looking forward to more interactions in the PA community. more power to PA - this is what makes them different from any other tech site.

I would use it to access every National database for patents and destroy every single one, thus making the manufactures (yes especially you Apple) compete on evolving and development, rather than court room drama.

Most powerful eh? Well I'd ditch my PC because all I'd need is a dock to boot up a full OS and do some power using! Heck just make docks with a screen, mouse and keyboard because everywhere I'd go I'd just have my 500TB of storage right on me! High end gaming on a PC? Heck no! I get that on my supercomputing pocket friend! Work, school, home, library, car...everywhere I go I've got the most powerful device I'll ever need with me! Just put a dock there for me to hook it up. Need to whip out a DSLR to get the job done? Not with my 1000 MP camera on my phone!

Needless to say, we've only scratched the surface of what is possible with smartphones. More features are added, new sensors are buried inside, the hardware and software gets better and better. I think that someday our phones will power everything. One device to rule them all...so to speak.

Wow these answers are boring. We're allowed to fantasize the ultimate superphone so let's actually do it...

1. 600TB iCloud storage with synchronization of EVERYTHING seamlessly across ALL devices.

2. 9G which is 10TB/s transfer speed , using the holographic properties of the earth's magnetic field as a transmission medium, so there is reception everywhere, and requires no towers and thus no carriers.

3. Ability to instantly project video, via 802.11z, into any other device around you, so you can always move up in screen size.

4. Ability to somehow fold or stretch from a small pocket size into a nice big screen size.

5. Ability to project a hologram above itself, as its display. And/or to project onto walls.

6. Kickstand and then a laser light keyboard that's full size is projected onto the horizontal surface under it, so you can instantly type for real.

7. Siri's great granddaughter, who you can basically tell anything and actually have her understand and do it, without typing.

8. OS Simulators and/or OS partitions allow it to run any kind of software from any platform.

9. Biometric security to where "it just knows it's you", to give better security for things like NFC payments to where it's completely automatic with no PIN, no slide-to-unlock, and so on.

..... it would open my garage doors, control my lights, alarms & thermostat. It would also serve as a universal remote for my home theater system and come with a docking station for home use. Once I set the cell phone in the docking station it would then switch to "home use" mode and allow me to use several hand sets that are tied to the docking station. This way whatever room I'm in, I'd have access to calls, text and maybe a couple of other basic features without having to carry the cell phone around the house. So my dream devise would actually be a system (i.e. cell phone with maxed out specs + base unit + base unit hand sets).
