I love the old Polaroid cameras! I'd like one that also uploads the digital photo as well as printing the physical copy.

Love my Garmin vivofit 4. It encourages and nags in equal measurement and I can use it for cashless payments...although, I always have a wobble paying for stuff without a bank card!!!

I'm physically and emotionally attached to my phone. It's all singing and dancing, on top of that it does the whole lot more things I couldn't do without these days from chatting to banking, entertainment to shopping and much much more. But I could do with a new one as my phone is a little tired and out of date, screen crushed and it's a bit slow with most apps. Wouldn't it be nice to have phones with scratch and crush resistant screens and as fast as a lightning One day maybe 🤔

Probably not a popular opinion, but I love physical keyboards. I wish there were more modern smartphones with physical keyboards, and also touch screens that work by tapping them with my nails!! I like my Samsung Galaxy A90, but I hate how it only works when touching it with my skin... it's so awkward when you have long nails!!

I am never without a tech device close at hand, my MacBook is my favourite but I miss my Blackberry and a Blackberry/iPhone hybrid would be my favourite "update" with a decent keyboard and speedier app performance.

I love my iPhone as it runs smoothly and has an amazing camera on it which is perfect for capturing all of life’s memories. In the future, I would like phones to have even more tech savvy features such as the ability to automatically set a time that a text message is sent and further camera updates to enhance picture quality as well.

My current phone has a large screen which makes it useful for entertainment, but its best features are probably the camera and most importantly the ultra-fast charging.

My Bluetooth Anker Soundbar is a tardis of a speaker. A big sound from a small box. Positioning is crucial for the best acoustics but it's so small you can place it wherever you think it sounds best.

My favourite bit of tech is now 43 years old and without it, the world would be a different place. Back in 1980 I was the proud owner of a Sinclair ZX80 computer, considered by many to be the first small home computer and one that kickstarted home computing back then. By modern standards its a joke, no hard drive, no floppy drive, no colour and small programs (1K) were loaded eventually from cassette. There is far more computing power in your average Chip & PIN ATM card or SIM card. This small, archaic computer set me on the path to being a computer engineer and eventually teaching electronics at University. I still have mine safely tucked away and occasionally dig it out for a Memory Lane experience.

I love my Samsung galaxy watch series 4. So handy to track exercises. Play music and pay by card all on a watch 😊👍

Now that I need reading glasses to read my phone I wonder if in the future you can put your eye prescription into your phone and it adjusts the display to suit your eyes therefore no glasses required.

My favourite piece of tech is my smart watch! It keeps track of my steps, sleep pattern, stress levels, oxygen levels, heart rate and even body composition, which is just crazy.

I'm on a health kick and trying to get healthy so this is an absolute god send.

I love the camera on my current phone as it is the best camera I have ever had and had enabled me to take some amazing pictures of my cat, my niece and nephew, and of our holidays.

I use my iPhone for banking, photos, storage, music and knowledge. A it is of course a vital tool for keeping in touch with my family and friends. Because of this, it is it’s reliability that I love most about my iPhone.

  • What do you love most about your current devices?

I really love the camera system on my Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. A great telephoto lens of 0.6, with a 1x, 3x, and 10x zoom, cropping up to 100x digital zoom. The algorithm and low-light performance are truly amazing.

  • What classic device would you like to see updated (if technology issues were no problem)?

I wish they could bring back the old Nokia N series phones, with the Andriod system installed! Such a classic of the era and durability used to be not an issue on mobile phones.

  • What future features would you like to see from mobile tech?

Cross-platform instant file sharing! I am tried of finding ways to share large files or images between my Samsung and MacBook, or sharing with friends around me who use iPhones. AirDrop and Nearby Share are both so quick and convenient, yet competition makes it hard for cross-platform sharing.

I love my iPhone because it’s everything I need everyday from emails to checking balances to shopping. 
I would love to see an update of an old Nokia 33 series.

I would like responses to questions superfast in the future.
