Question What new feature in next iPhone would persuade you most to upgrade?

When Apple releases the next iPhone (Whether it's called iPhone 4s or iPhone 5), what feature(s) would most likely persuade you to upgrade? What are you most hoping to see in the next iPhone? (Describe only one or two of your most wanted features)

Bigger screen?
Higher resolution screen?
Faster processor?
Significantly longer lasting battery?
Front facing HD Camera?
Smaller size?
Built in lazer pointer?

For me personally, I wish they'd continue to make improvements on battery life. I'd like to be able to use an iPhone pretty hard on a day trip somewhere with a bit of battery to spare at the end of the day.

A close second is, I would love a front facing HD camera. Would be great for video-casting on the road and being able to see what is being filmed.

Since I got my iPad, I have seemed to use my iPhone less and less. I rarely use more than email and a few apps that access the internet. I can't remember the last time I used safari on the iPhone, it seems so small now that I have my iPad. I even cancelled the data plan on my iPhone. I would like to see an iPhone that is smaller and less powerful and a lower price point. (the iPhone nano). I have no disillusions that this is going to happen, but I'm fine with my 3G for now and the uses that I use it for. I sometimes miss not having data when I am out without wifi, but it doesn't happen enough to warrant the monthly data charge, especially when I can usually borrow my girlfriends iPhone 4 to check scores when I'm out.

This, and a larger screen with better battery life.

I would say:

Bigger screen (only slightly though), resolution is good as is.
Faster processor, 1GB RAM with longer lasting battery
Front facing HD Camera would be awesome!

I personally don't want to see the iPhone go without a Home Button. iPad without a home button... sure!

At this point I'm just looking for software improvements...some of those will likely benefit from faster CPU & GPU but so far my 4 is fast enough.

Ability to switch things like Bluetooth and wifi off from the status bar.

On the iPad, I'd like to be able to navigate more easily between multiple supporting documents while I take notes on a meeting.

The only reason I'll be upgrading from my iPhone 4 is either when it fails on me or it becomes obsolete and I have to upgrade ... which seems to be about a 2-3 year run if past experience is very telling on this matter.
