    I would love to just keep the phone simple. I like the curve idea of a screen already. But a rollable or foldable (screen) phone doesn't really wow me like it should. I'm a simple guy.

    A small device that when you turn it on a bunch of holograms appear around you with everything from a dj to play your music or facebook popping up pics you don't care about.

    Hologram! A headgear that is your smartphone with a tiny laser beaming a user-selectable choice of either a see-through hologram display or a solid hologram display, in which the display size itself can be customized. 8k resolution however, with 3-D capability!

    I don't see the every day benefit from a hologram phone (minus the wow factor). I would like to see the foldable screen so that phone can fit in your pocket comfortably but can be unfolded for a tablet like experience if need be. Definitely something I would  buy in the future!

    rollable is gonna happen soon. I think phones are going to get bigger than suddenly start shrinking again.

    With all the VR and AR  interest right now, I see it head toward holograms.

    I want my own personal R2D2 to spit out holograms not a phone lol!

    Rollable screen so that if something hits the screen it is less likely to crack since it can move
