There are so features we all want on our phones but just can’t have. Or well, some features we want, but doesn’t seem possible. But it doesn’t stop designers from designing their ideal cell phone! Some of them are really unique. A roll out touch pad, a see through water droplet phone, a phone in the shape of a pen - there are so many here on this site.
