Let's design the perfect smartphone together!
Here we are in 2022, and what an exciting year it's going to be! The Galaxy S22 is on the way, several companies are likely to release their first, or next foldable smartphones, and who knows, we might finally see a rollable one, or maybe even augmented reality glasses.

Although phone designs aren't as varied as they were back before the first iPhone, things are getting progressively more interesting again.

The problem is – even so, you can only get the type of smartphone companies decide to make and release. And each company has different priorities and design ideas – one makes phones with curved edges, another makes them flat, some add rainbow-colored backs, others only release phones in basic colors – most often black and white.

Some phones have matte backs, others glossy… Some have elaborate camera set-ups, others are understated, keeping things minimalist.

But what do you want? Now is the time to make your preferences known!

Below we have a series of polls you can vote on, and in doing so, you and countless other phone enthusiasts like you will end up designing the perfect smartphone!
