Android Central Stocking StuffersOh, my. So ... full. Can't ... hardly ... type. But the giving must go on. We're marching toward the final round of our month-long (ish) Google Play Gift Card giveaway, in which we're giving 31 lucky winners $10 to spend on Android apps, movies, music, magazines or TV shows from Google Play.

Oh, and by the way -- all 31 winners (one for each day in December) will be entered to win a shiny new Nexus 4, still in its box, sitting here on our desk. (In case you had any concern for our ability to snag what remains an unsnaggable device.)

So ... for today's entries: Leave a comment on this post and tell us the top Android-related feature you're hoping for in 2013. One entry per person, yadda yadda yadda.

Good luck!

Photosphere for my Sprint GNex.

sxayarath says:

It's already available as a flashable zip or JB Gapps. I have it on my Sprint Galaxy Nexus for awhile now.

Anee Holly says:

I'd llike to see a full touch screen interactive calendar app that can sync with my gmail calendar.

ndasilva says:

More Google Now features, such as the ability to book appointments with restaurants, etc.


Accidentally multiple posted. Apologies.

Fairclough says:

A phone which works with more apps then my htc wildfire...
FIngerprint unlock would be awesome idea!


Please delete this post. I accidentally couple posted.

TexasEpic4G says:

a gift card would be nice ( does it come with the pretty girl ? ) :)

The feature I want isn't really new but I would love to see a serious flagship phone with full keyboard. That was one thing I've missed having since the original g1. Other than that maybe better low light performance camera. :)

j-stock says:

Merry Christmas an a happy new year to everyone at android central!

shcole says:

I would love a google play card...ok, love is such a strong word...but still, seeing the multiple windows open feature in all android devices would be nice, then apple could copy it and sue an android OEM....

Like they are in Samsung Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S3, already?

mwara244 says:

I would Love OEM's Like Samsung to offer stock android as an option to their devices instead of their versions of android. I'd Love a Note 2 or SG3 with stock android.

littleemp says:

Hoping for something to get new games to play in my N7 :-)

KG_KS says:

Merry Christmas!

bubbl07 says:

A Jellybean update to my H1S (t-mo)

radgatt says:

I hope to have voice activated unlocking of my cell phone!

dmedesha says:

A port of the Pris camera app from the iOS, o/s. The live focus, light reading split targets are slick. Have not found an Android app that does that (yet.)

Toochief says:

If I win, I will go from iPhone to Android!

btgrave says:

Hoping for more user-friendly improvements to attract newcomers, but mostly so I don't have to be tech support for everyone I know who decides to jump into the Android Ecosystem.

eliasso says:

a physical keyboard for a phone with high specs

How about the ability to turn off the constant select input type, hey youre on a wifi network and wow you have blocking mode turned on but aint using it right now!

Or maybe thats just samsungs fault....

Westfire says:

Thanks for giving away gift cards! I hope for better Wallet/Google Now integration for movie tickets, airline tickets, sporting events, etc.

fjitb says:

I still have a Galaxy SII so a screen thats as bright and dynamic as the one on this phone. I love the saturated colors.

bsinc1962 says:

Battery life, battery life, and more battery life.

abhi2nahi4 says:

I'm hoping for a Tasker like automation feature to be built in stock Android

Guitarified says:

Photosphere and a perfect keyboard for my EVO LTE. SwiftKey Flow is close but not there yet.

RustyU says:

The feature I want most is Google Wallet available in more countries, specifically the UK.

newmexican says:

Eliasso, I wish even more specific: A Nexus device with physics keyboard is top of my list

donnietri says:

I hope there will be more butter on my yakju gnex

Tony Hogan says:

Selective alerts (or maybe I just haven't found it yet). Alerts for messaging (texts) but a way to put timers on alerts say from 7am to 7pm for email, 7am to midnight for texts, etc.


I hope to get the ability to have plain Android ROM on my device from manufacturers. I hope that manufacturers would offer plain rom and customized rom so that we can play with either interface and have a much quicker updates.

Lance Miller says:

I've hoped for the same thing forever.

eloy35 says:

Key Lime pie

jtio says:

Power Control widget on the LockScreen

salamin says:

I want to see better battery consumption on the key lime pie for my gnexus.

TheClarkster says:

Definitely want a merged/universal Chat app.

Silent1 says:

A standard in file sharing among nfc enabled and disabled devices.

nemo says:

Real cloud syncing for apps and games to compete with iCloud. I want to be able to play a game on my phone, then pick up my tablet and pick up where I left off. Same thing for all my other apps. I want all my info to be synced across devices.

trobbl says:

Looking for nothing more that better battery life in 2013 : \

stpark6985 says:

I wouldn't mind seeing the UI tweaked just a little bit more. I love what they changed in ICS, and now with 4.2, but there are little things that could be better. The back button for instance.

Paul Ryan1 says:

fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone

sross71 says:

Better battery life would be nice.

stephentr says:

better group texting.

klevente says:

I would like a new Samsung nexus phone, and Ingress to be public :)

wilder_jw says:

I want card-based multitasking. (Yes, just like webOS.) As a placeholder, I'll take side-by-side multitasking.


ptheisen says:

Happy Holidays!!!!!

eon69nc says:

I want not just a feature like google wallet, but i want google to start taking control of the carriers and stop with the bloatware they are putting on these great phones

Honestly, better integration between Mac and Android. I think Mac is the superior OS, but it just refuses to play nice with my GS3 in the hopes that I'll got back to iphone. I hope they start being more compatible.

mr.holtz says:

Hoping for Sprint LTE!! Hold my breath?? I'd love to see NFC and Google wallet really go mainstream, there's a lot of potential there.

NGEFreek says:

I'd love to see them add in something along the lines of restore points from windows, which I realize you can do from custom recoveries, but to see an official version of this would be great!

Joey Paski says:

Integrated mono audio option.

would love to win!

Would love to have LoveFilm streaming come to all Android systems, and not just the Kindle Fire!

I am hoping for no more variation of devices. I love my GSIII but not having the quad-core processor of the GNote II and the International GSIII bums me out sometimes.

wanderguzman says:

photosphere for my tmobile galaxy s3

rfalso says:

Please toss my name in the hat!

jsngrvn says:

All I want is Verizon to play nice with others....

Josh515 says:

I'm hoping for improvements to Google Now, such as having greater and more integrated voice control over your phone and the buttery smoothness seen in Jellybean.

Mr.Raviteja says:

More Smoothness and Better Battery

BRIVERS73 says:

Whatever the coolest feature is that comes out in the next build of Android.. :p

nipcarlover says:

I would love to see more improvements to Google Now, and especially seeing the travelling section when travelling to different parts of a country such as India, where language changes in every state almost..

draken says:

I'd like the Multi-Window update for the AT&T version of the Galaxy Note 2, since they are the only major carrier in the US who hasn't released this update yet.

Hoping for a all the Jelly Bean love on my Droid Razr.

Smart panorama with horizontal and vertical stitching and smooth rotation capture.

chad783 says:

It is more of a product than a feature really...Google Glass!!!

573W1E says:

Hoping for a new Nexus Q type device to make the sharing of content from our shiny Android devices to any TV easier :D Pairing it by using NFC would be awesome!

Motorola said to be working on
the 'X Phone' to bring the
ultimate Android eXperience

matchqq says:

I want the main lock screen to display more widgets!

Caloy9 says:

I just want longer-lasting batteries.

I'm looking forward to the htc M7 that is set for release in Q1 of 2013

HeathWala says:

I'm still hoping to see something come out of the Android@Home concept in 2013, but I'm beginning to think that's a pipe dream at this point.

Doomed#AC says:

Photosphere! Love it!

doomstang says:

I'm hoping for actual LTE coverage to go with my awesome phone.

stab244 says:

Only thing I can think of right now is the ability to natively pin-lock apps on a app by app basis. That's about it.

KJL487 says:

Jelly Bean for my Rezound.

brinox says:

Official 4.2(.1?) for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus please!

TheDave says:

I would love to see manufacturer UI elements and features be removable and more customizable to create a spectrum from stock to full skin that a user can choose.

still1 says:

I would love to see Notification Customization. there should be an entry in settings to customize type of notification, LED notification, sound and vibrate for individual application.

adamatus says:

offline google docs with editing !

mattb5#AC says:

I'm hoping my Rezound will get Jelly Bean in 2013 or at least let me try Google Now in ICS.

mpinter says:

I know it's a small thing, but now that they've added swipe-to-delete to the Gmail app, I'd like to see it on the regular mail app and in the Messaging app. I'm an old Palm Pre user and appreciate the blending of features Duarte is bringing over :)

jian9007 says:

I would like the ability to view/share photosphere shots anywhere. Twitter, Facebook, G+, email, browser, MMS, etc. Just like a regular photo or video that we can share now, that's what I want for photosphere pics.

Lobout says:

I would love to see a projection keyboard on tablets!!

The Miracast tech is one im waiting on. All that would be needed is that implementation on a tablet and tada: You have one of the best game/movie watching experiences to date from Android. Success!

ceart99 says:

I'd love to see the trend of removing support for SD cards reverse itself. That is my wish for 2013.

ballroomdru says:

There are several features I would love to see. Better bdefault battery management. Better, faster task managment by default. But most of all, I would love to see a mandatory three month or less update cycle for OEM,s.

seanlongoria says:

A few I'd like to see:
1) An official, not accidentally released, JB upgrade for the OG RAZR
2) Amazon instant video apps for Androids outside the Kindle Fire family
3) Expansion of Google Now capabilities
4) A better looking Google Music app

mawilson82 says:

I think something like Tasker and a way to authorize certain apps to enable/disable GPS without rooting.

Merry Christmas!

timehat says:

Better management of what apps can run notifications. iOS paradigm may be a bit too restrictive, but I like that it errs on the side of battery life and central control (rather than hidden in each app's preferences and only having an ability to block the actual notification on an os level--which I assume means the same battery use, just nothing showing up in the tray...).

henrietta says:

Better battery life. Am I right?

BlackEco says:

I would really like to see a WebTop-like feature coming in the next Android release.
Transforming his phone into a desktop computer would be very cool :)

gagdude says:

A super power saver mode to really help with battery life

KYHusker says:

JB updates all year long!

I would love to see that MotoGoogle phone the X.

MS_nerd says:

I would like mouse support & a tiling window manager built into Android in 2013

orlanka says:

LTE Nexus

jcochran1977 says:

I have a Droid Razr M and HD as well as a Nexus 7! I LOVE everything ANDROID!!!!

airborne3e9 says:

like to see more companies use android apks to control things like opening doors, controlling temps etc

Magellan says:

I would love to see more game compatibility with the MOGA controller.

Ring in 2013 with a new device
from Sprint and Android Central!

vader4633 says:

Photosphere on my note 2

sakasune says:

Ability to read my mind and do what I want instantly...speaking to your phone is soooo 2012 ;)

AndroidJDG says:

I would like to see all Android software without bloatware and for them to have more customizable features to our standards not the manufactures.

ChaSiuBao says:

i've love to see the Photosphere on my Gs3!

treb1797 says:

Did anybody mention better battery life yet ? Oh

Tsudeily says:

I'd like to see emoji support as a default on Android devices.

cnguyen0320 says:

I would like to see Project Roadrunner become a reality. With project butter to fix the lag, let's get something to make battery last foreverrr!

kide#WN says:

Happy New Year! Google X phone with good battery performance.

vg7702 says:

key lime pie

hurricanedt says:

A competitor to iMessage for sure.

gksmithlcw says:

We already have one of those. AND it's cross-platform.

mohankumar.p says:

An awesome cool surprising feature to talk and win more friends who are supporters of competing mobile OS ;)

gonecks1 says:

I want a bloatware free phone thats not named nexus, or at least not have to jump thru hoops to remove...

trojans says:

For Verizon to get rid of the wifi notification.

MFR118 says:

For 2013 I'd love for Android to implement ways to put any app in the notification window (within reason) Something we could drag and drop in. Merry Christmas to everyone at Android Central and Happy New Year. Keep up the great work you guys and gals do!

more goodies for Google Now

upstanding says:

I want to see maybe some more solid tmo coverage in my area for post christmas

Eurotop says:

I would love to see being able to move the bloated apps to the sd card

Hipgnose says:

I really like the new camera features that Samsung did in Galaxy S3, like the best face, it would be a nice feature.

bergeronjc says:

I want the ability to set notifications for individual apps being moved to the Settings menu instead of relying on each app to put in a setting to adjust notifications.

Outrager says:

A $99 Nexus tablet.

LordSudsy says:

I would like cloud syncing of save games and app settings. That would make flashing different roms so easy.

Wicket says:

I think what I'm hoping to see is further optimization of the OS (project butter is good but sometimes acts like it's not there) and better battery performance, though I'm not sure how much of that is on Android vs the battery smart people.

winter128 says:

Someone above posted fingerprint scanner for unlocking... I second that!!!!!

A gift card would be wonderful and Jelly Bean for my HTC One S.

munkyhead86 says:

I'd really like to see NFC evolved in 2013. This is a killer feature, which is waaaay underrated due to bad PR and lack of awareness. I am really hoping to see it evolve into something more - because the technology itself is awesome.

mlacla22 says:

Google Glass integration with my nexus!

bp240 says:

More options on the native messaging app. When I used go sms, two features that stuck out to me were the ability to split and number messages larger than 160 characters for CDMA networks, and the choice to preserve image size up to a certain amount. When I send an MMS in the stock app it compresses images a ridiculous amount. Also, the ability to block texts from a particular person.

traviscannon says:

Voice over data

bduran727 says:

Better power-mangement!

TizOnly1 says:

I'm looking forward to a camera that doesn't suck

crxssi says:

Top feature... that is hard. One of these:

* X11 server.
* Alphabetized menus.
* Category tags on apps (from developers).
* Optional widget for grouping apps by auto category.
* Option for listing "all" apps by auto category.
* Ability to deny an app a permission and install it anyway.
* Built-in lockdown options so Nexus devices can be used in businesses as appliances.

josue85 says:

I think having a achievement system baked into the OS would be really nice (think of a better implemented Game Center). System wide achievements and friends list would go a long way in making a great gaming ecosystem.

glennw1 says:

Cloud syncing for game/app saves! Fed up of losing all my progress whenever I get a new device.

rwb501 says:

I would love to buy a phone without bloat wear or at least if it were removable

fareal says:

Nexus phablet and even more butter.

rookie5656 says:

Hi. Something innovative something that people would like and benefit from. I want a teleporter :) would make everything easier!

kevin_wsy says:

I hope there will be a feature that knows I am reading and will scroll the page by itself.

Orkchop says:

To tell Google Now about a new place you now want traffic to. (Instead of waiting and hoping it'll show up.)

obidos says:

I would like to have a EQ that is part of the OS and not an app you have to get from the Play store.

licotto says:

Have the system itself able to keep track of the Ringtones & SMS alert tones attached to a contact's profile so when you change an SD card or evinces a device!

azdmelani says:

A bendable android teehee

stiemkeca says:

Performance considerations for no-longer-state-of-the-art phones. Nexus S 4G lagging badly after 4.1 update though ran better with 4.0. If I still were under contract my options would be limited.

virtualme says:

Love the giveaway!!

I would love to see the speech recognition gain a training feature where you can correct mistakes it makes to improve accuracy.

robamacaf says:

Photosphere is nice and I like using it but the one feature I like more than all is the MultiUser on 4.2.1! Now I can have my tablet set up how I want and let the kids have their own account and I don't have to litter my screen with games or folders for them! And it's so easy to use that my 4 year old knows how to switch to the kids profile and game

Google integrated find my droid type of service integrated with Google Maps. Also a full a non complicated and no root needed way of backing up device data and app data and using it with Google Drive. Make it compatible with all devices running Android 2.3 and up.

lppngmk says:

hmmm. Some new stuff for developers would be kind of nice.

more refined ui

mithmal says:

Wireless charging.

tata123 says:


DROIDDNAer says:


northend999 says:

Better battery/LTE management

n4life says:

My Android wishlist for 2013:

- An application for developper to monitor their app on google play (download, rating, comments, crash report...)

- A better notification system: ability to change led color without external app and the ability to add personalizing tiles to quickly see the number of missing calls, messages, push notifications, ...

- A web gallery to upload photoSphere

Happy New Year,

tsureshraj49 says:

5 inch nexus with LTE

gksmithlcw says:

Voice over Wi-Fi a la T-Mobile.

henderjr says:

Wireless charging like the old pre touchtone. More locations accepting google wallet would be nice too.

Bradleee says:

I'm looking forward to seeing 4.3 inch 720p displays with on screen buttons. A nicely sized (and at that time) mid-ranged, (currently) high spec'd device would be sweet.

angeljr1208 says:

I would to see SwiftKey standard on android cause this keyboard is unbelievable

killerxmic says:

Invisible keyboard, or a keyboard that knows what your typing by predicting the location of where your finger touches. Typing without even looking!

Happy Holidays!

tsipka says:

Getting rid of the Just Once/ Always buttons on Jelly Bean when selecting an app would be nice. Can't wait to see what Key Lime Pie will do on my Galaxy Nexus

rock3r says:

I'd love to see Google copy-pasting CM10.1's quicksettings implementation. The Stock one doesn't just make sense!

steveazee says:

I'd like to have home screens that work in landscape mode.

Esquire1 says:

I'm looking forward to Google hopefully merging all the messaging clients.

Carriers moving their bloatware of our phones as pre-installed garbage and moved to the play store, so we the consumer can choose whether or not to download it

pfe1223 says:

I would like to see Google Now become more robust. For example a to-do list or better yet third party integration into Google Now.

dj86 says:

I want better battery life!

Brandito says:

Improved battery life.

xeraphael says:

I'd love the ability to wipe data from a device, BUT leave installed apps intact. Even better, the option to choose whether to wipe system OR app data, with the option to retain installed apps, instead of having them all nuked out.

Some way to manage background services would be great as well. Windows Phone, for example, lets you disable background services without disabling the app entirely - it'd be great if Android had something like that too out of the box.

Android also needs an iCloud equivalent. There's already Google Drive, Google really needs to allow the OS and apps to utilize it the way iOS does with iCloud.

One word: Miracast.

blakeh07 says:

Native group messaging/threading would be nice

BMIC50 says:

I would love for more webOS-like true multitasking (as Samsung has begun with their Note 2) and standardized charging ports on the bottom.

untcodegeek says:

Sprint to enable LTE in Denver, CO for my EVO LTE!!

evoANDY says:

How about Google Wallet support on my Galaxy S3!

Pr3mier says:

RAZR Maxx-like battery life for the nexus phones

sprof says:

A standardized location for the USB port would be nice.

I am looking for Google to fully support all features on there Nexus line. An example is USB host support for the Nexus 4. Also I would like too see the bugs worked out of Google Wallet, success rate is below 50%.

AllGood says:

Not going to happen but to open up the LTE on the N4. But i'd like to see the ablity to gift items from the play store so I could buy apps for my daughter on her N7 with out having me CC info on her account

nelsencd says:

I would like better media integration with my sound system and TV. Like Apple has with Airplay.

gdbusby says:

Universal partition tables

rub2008 says:

A cool Virtual keyboard (holographic keyboard))

mraiii says:

Better quality camera software on the Nexus.

movielover76 says:

My wishes for 2013 are
an update to my device to improve battery life
a nexus 5 with LTE and a huge battery (especially if we're going to stay with a non-removable battery) Like Razr Maxx sized :)

skywalker363 says:

Google wallet officially on every phone with an NFC chip

bender234 says:

Game Circle with achievements!

scooter14000 says:

I definitely want to see better battery life and faster/more consistent GPS fixes!

ctk4949 says:

A Nexus 4 for verizon, UNTOUCHED BY VERIZON!!!!

LegacyEvoAce says:

More phones capable of wireless charging.

I think it'd be cooool to see a mashup of an Olympus Tough camera with an Android phone.

Alictory says:

I hope for better battery life for my device which is the Samsung galaxy s3.

ed meyerink says:

I'd like to see cards for college football.

jellie123 says:

Better battery management, please.

ricrdv says:


byrds8 says:

I would love the ability to run any Windows desktop program on my Note 2. If ever a time Android started running it all Id have no need for other systems.

megerber says:

merged universal chat

ricrdv says:


mpvgsu says:

Multi Window task. That's the expected feature.

hgoldner#CB says:

A transporter beam would be nice.

tumatos says:

i would love a photosphere that would actually look nice and not overly stupid, blur, out of focus and....stupid :)

i wonder if it's just my lack of technique though

wade_county says:

Battery life, duh.

PAC757 says:

I wish my AT&T Galaxy Note 2 would have all the features of EVERY OTHER Galaxy Note 2. That's what I'm looking forward to...... hopefully sometime in 2013

jnbarth says:

Social Fixer for facebook - it makes life so much easier!

andoird213 says:

I'd like Google to add an Archive button in the expandable notifications for Gmail.

commonplace says:

Continued refinements to the Google Play Store.

jms67 says:

more "trial" apps. I have no problem supporting good devs. but I want to spend some time with it before plunking down cash.

jmenke2 says:

I'm simply looking forward to Android Jelly Bean on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. I love JellyBean on my Samsung Galaxy SIII! Merry Christmas to all!

More beautiful screens from HTC!

spoggle says:

I would like to see better quality audio and more musical applications to take advantage of the better audio. Android phones in speakerphone mode or playing music through the speakers just sounds awful.

jerkules says:

Flexible displays!

a special profile for the last 25% of battery to just extract maximum battery life.
and multi window apps.

GdgtMD says:

I just want the next Android update to improve battery life.

How about Android introduces text to voice for text messages and voice command to open apps?

dougtheneard says:

Better games support. Cloud syncing (like Steam or Xbox has) and a centralized gaming hub (like Steam, Xbox Live, Game Center, etc).


Kaph says:

Bluetooth headset integration with Google Now, would be exceptionally useful in the car.

epps720 says:

Battery and battery life. give me at least a 3000 mah battery that will last at least 2 full days on regular use but still want a slim phone.

Yes I want it all...

kingjaffejo says:

better battery life is all i need

meethere says:

want key lime pie 2013


ztycoonz says:

More than anything, I would love to have the merger of Messenger and Google Talk. I think I'll get that wish. SIP for google voice would be nice as well, although I doubt I'll get that wish. I'm looking forward to Google Now enhancements as well.

Better sync and communication between phones and tables, my S3 and Nexus 7 are having a hard time to share information, pictures, etc. I wish Jelly Bean had something that would make that easier without having to install a bunch of 3rd party apps

Nikdotme says:

A decent mail client for non-Gmail accounts.

I would like to see the play store gift cards become applicable to your actual Google wallet account so you can use that credit towards things like a nexus 10.

squintyboy says:

newest jelly bean update for verizon nexus

The feature that I would like to see is Maps being fully functional offline. I'd like to use navigation without needing data to start the route.

Hoping to see Google havea more offline mapping that help people fine there way


leszekp says:

Better battery life. And better battery life.

fairwinds8 says:

How about improved offline mapping stability and offline turn by turn navigation? That would be really useful when travelling outside of service areas :)

jg274105 says:

Cloud Sync for apps. Having root shouldn't be a requirement to be able to maintain game saves after switching devices or a factory reset.

cixelsyd says:

Speed! More speed!

A long lasting battery on a phone that also has a top contending camera.

chiroho says:

The thing I'm looking forward to most is Key Lime Pie, and getting it as soon as possible on my Galaxy Nexus.

bellken says:

public and private user modes, multi-user support for phones

Thanka for giveaways

Im lookign forward to the new x-phone

psnyder says:

I'm really looking forward to the new Note, and the newer Nexus line.

ynot2985 says:

I would like to see wireless charging on my gsIII be official!!!

TCuneo says:

I'd love the ability to mute notifications from the notification bar.
also the ability to tie action to an specific time, i.e. sound off at night, or back on at 5 after work.

mukul.modi says:

That rumored Project Roadrunner in KLP..that would be awesome!

BioDave says:

I'm looking forward to the upcoming multi-window feature on my GS3! I'm also looking forward to using my GS3 as a wallet with NFC (in Canada).

AndroidJK7 says:

Better battery life, and quicker updates to non nexus devices.

sgp77 says:

Sync across devices for all application data

muchtall says:

Itineraries in Google Nav, and better Google voice control ("Open iHeartRadio", "Play KTLK").

hoobie1928 says:

I am hoping Google takes advantage of Moto. I want to see a Moto built nexus phone and tablet. Finally see if Google had Complete Control over a device, how it would turn out.

Merry Christmas everyone :)

I hope that google will give us a feature that could pick every color that we want with just using back camera.
And also reduce the heat from intense using. It's annoying

chronos#CB says:

LTE for tmobile, bigger screen and longer battery life for gs4

2gerry says:

With the ever thinning line between the size of a smartphone and a seven inch tablet, I just like the manufacturers to get it done and over with. Huawei's supposed to come out with a 6.1" smartphone and even a rumored 8.4 or 8.6" phablet, in 2013. I would love to see a 7" Nexus Smartphone with full Tablet functionality. But of course, this would mean lost sales for the manufacturers....dream on, I guess.

willmsbrg says:

That my AT&T Note2 gets multi-view without rooting as I've been really happy with this phone out of the box for a change!!

Thanks for the contest.

Philter05 says:

How about a wireless charging standard!

rkeenan says:

I am hoping to see wireless charging be a standard for Android.

an automation tool like atooma built in right into the system would be a huge improvement to the android eco system.

another improvement should be strict regulations for app developers, about how an android app should look like, where is the option menu what happens with the back button.

damobster54 says:

I'm looking forward to Android becoming 64bit. It will unlock the potential of the powerful hardware.

I am hoping for Android to make updates a requirement for manufacturers. There's no reason Samsung still allows ATT (or any other carrier) to dictate what goes on the phones after they sold that many devices.

For 2013, im hoping for an android update for Nexus 7 that gives us dual application screens (like samsung plans to give). I really want the dual application feature for true multitasking!!!!

More battery life!

TechAd says:

Local and cloud app data backup...without the need for root.

sly says:

This isn't a top Android-feature, per-se, but I'd like to see Google change their mind about support of Active Sync and Google Calendar Sync.

New features I am hoping to see in 2013 for Android are: "Live Tiles" widgets, improved Google Play store with quality apps, BETTER battery life management. Oh would love to have a Nexus 4 in my hands!!

ezcats says:

Key Lime Pie with Project Roadrunner or whatever they call it. Just better battery life and more butter!

itsrommel says:

if moto can put in a 3300mah battery in the razr maxx/razr maxx hd, then other manufacturers should be able to as well.

dancing-bass says:

New spin on Nexus.

Google specifies hardware but not manufacturer (EG, must be quad core, must have 2Gig ram, must have specific minimums for camera (sensor size, performance, resolution). If a phone manufacturer's device meets those requirements it can be labelled and marketed as "Nexus"

Key Lime Pie (or whatever the "K" OS will be called)

next evolution of battery hardware

(And I gotta say I'm curious about sammy's flexible screen that have been leaked)

frozndevl says:

I want inductive charging for my next device.

A native way to control LED notifications and more customizable notifications built right into the Android OS would be stellar.

jludwig57 says:

Jelly Bean for my S2 skyrocket. I don't really want to root.

Ry says:

A "Find My Android Device" feature built-in.

dakine26-2 says:

Would love a more sophisticated permission model so that I wouldn't need to root in order to give one app permission to another application's data. (example - Aldiko and Aldiko Sync)

SpookDroid says:

Photoshpere for Galaxy Note 2, of course!!! Oh, and Holographic Displays, although I might not get that next year :P

jhilker says:

Would love to be able to set separate tones for messages, similar to calls...

Zanzaras says:

Hmmm... i'd like the next big feature of Android to automagically turn Verizon into a dumb pipeline with reasonable data prices.

b0ricua says:

Looking forward to Chrome remote desktop for mobile!

tyoac says:

better group text messages and project battery!

kisong says:

Note 2 - Key Lime Pie!!!

facedown41 says:

Looking forward to flexible screens!

pokingmon says:

I'm hoping for Google to put their foot down and work out deals with carriers/manufacturers so that we can install vanilla Android releases on carrier branded handsets, or get an "opt out" feature while setting up a carrier device that doesn't install any bloatware or carrier branded software. If anything, this could be a workaround for users to get rid of bloatware and software that we don't need without resorting to rooting and dealing with unrefined/unofficial builds. I think the carriers need to be shown that allowing pure Android on their sets won't affect their bottom line. General users that aren't tech savvy should have an easy route to pure Android when Nexus phones are hard to come by. (or if the carrier can get them a better deal)

shahid99 says:

Ermmm I want bigger batteries and 2
.0. Ghz processer

A taser in Key lime pie! Or just photosphere on my Evo LTE.

Jleagle says:

Bendy screens! :)

deep210 says:

Better battery life all the way.

ecpolo521 says:

I want to see a better stock Messenger app.

priority9 says:

would love to see Google music (i'm in Canada)available and better integration of Google now

IgorPunck says:

next gen Nexus phone from Samsung would be amazing. Also an app for Nexus 7 to control Google TV (Android mini PC).
Happy Holidays guys!

quelsplace says:

I would like to see a compatable Facetime app so I can keep in touch with my son who has an iphone.

bloodbond3 says:

I'm excited for MediaMonkey 4.1, which will feature Wi-Fi syncing with Android! Also the OUYA (proud backer)!!!

delesh says:

Split screen multitasking built into stock Android.

ktklein says:

I think along the lines of the GNote2, true multi-windows/multitasking as a standard feature moving forward for all builds of the OS from KLP 5.X forward. Another feature that would be nice is have all app devs write one app that works for both smartphones and tablets with the appropriate layout displaying depending on which device the app is loaded instead of separate versions of the app for each type of device.

brandon_L says:

Photo sphere would be nice

yocubed says:

a keyboard dock for the nex10!!

shyam92 says:

Another HTC Nexus phone!!!!!

jweng says:

An easier and consistent copy and paste functionality in Android OS.

NealJ777 says:

I'm hoping for the ability to voice control settings (WiFi on/off, etc...)

Have Google Now launch apps! :)

mr.wizard says:

I'm hoping for more places to adopt Google wallet. I'm sick of only going to McDonald's to pay for stuff with my phone... And my waistline doesn't like it either

ungibbed says:

A first party charging cradle and new back cover on the Galaxy S III that uses the charging pins inside the phone itself. One major feature I miss from my BlackBerry years ago.

So much for Dear Santa, it's now Dear Samsung... ;-)

tubamaneric says:

Can't think of any new features, I'm pretty happy with where we're at.
