Hi,

I'm looking to buy the iPhone 5 or later but I would like to see it have these features:
1. a flash-light (like the one you see in Nokia 1661)
2. at least, an AM/FM radio
3. a longer-lasting battery life (e.g. 24 hours) while still being light-weight.

Thanks.

    1. a flash-light (like the one you see in Nokia 1661)

     

    There a number of flash-lite apps via the iTunes app store and Apple is including the option with iOS 7. The flash-lite option included with iOS 7 will be under Control Center.

    2. at least, an AM/FM radio

     

    There are a number of radio streamng apps available via the iTunes app store. The ones I use are free.

     

    3. a longer-lasting battery life (e.g. 24 hours) while still being light-weight.

     

    Longer lasting for what functions? Apple is limited to current battery technology which has been steps behind since day one. There are a number of fluctuating factors involved with battery life.

    For the time being, your number 3 is mutually exclusive with current battery technology.  The only way to get longer battery life would be to use a heavier, larger/bulkier battery.  Basically, somebody needs to invent a radically new battery technology.  Until then, the only way is to make devices bigger, so you can cram a bigger battery into them.

    Option to use pre-paid is dependent on the wireless carrier and is

    a decision made by the wireless carrier. Whether the iPhone supports

    pre-paid service or not has nothing to do with Apple or iOS, but

    solely with the wireless provider you choose to use. Some support

    pre-paid, some do not. Those that do support pre-paid do not always

    support the full range of functiont that come with a monthly account;

    some do not provide SMS or voice mail or MMS or FaceTime or

    combinations thereof.
