As someone who has been reviewing mobile electronics for almost 9 years it’s my job to be critical. That same critical eye that launched my career has also made it incredibly difficult for me to fully appreciate the incredible devices that are out today. It wasn’t until recently that I finally came to that realization, and as quickly as I did I aimed to rectify it.

I began doing a bit of self reflecting, asking myself what would make me completely happy with a phone? Has any phone I’ve tested come close? As I was running through this exercise I started compiling a list of what my dream phone would actually look like. Once I looked at the spec sheet I knew I wanted to bring it to life, or at least as close as I could. So, I reached out to one of the best render makers in the business @CConceptCreator to bring my dream to life.

For the full explanation, give the video a watch, but the specs I worked with were mostly grounded in reality, the only real work of fiction is Apple ever playing nice with Android OEMs. Below is the spec sheet.

  • Galaxy S9 display 5.8
  • Face ID
  • In-display fingerprint reader
  • Pixel 2 camera with variable aperture and 2nd camera from Galaxy S9 Plus
  • Dual front-facing speakers
  • DAC from LG
  • Expandable storage
  • IP 68
  • Wireless charging
  • IR blaster
  • Removable battery
  • Headphone jack
  • USB C
  • Profile switcher from Apple
  • 8GB RAM
  • A11 Bionic
  • Stock Android P
  • iMessage for Android
  • Notch is being used like a second screen
