Recently on Android.Appstorm, Nathaniel Mott wrote about What an iPhone User Expects from Ice Cream Sandwich, citing what he’s looking forward to and what has him worried as he patiently awaits his new Galaxy Nexus, a phone I claimed was the best on the market. In what seems to be a serendipitous coincidence, I recently received an iPhone 4S from my job, and I too have some expectations as I begin to use iOS more often.

Look, I love my iPhone, probably more than I should. Still, as I continue to use Android and Windows Phone, I can’t help but think that there are some things Apple could possibly “borrow” from the other two mobile operating systems.

Let’s take a look at a few of those things that I’d like to bring back to the iPhone.

Apple and Samsung have been working together for years, and many of the components in the iPhone are built by the huge electronics manufacturer. But as it turns out, even though they both work together, they’re also suing the pants off of each other, and now the battle has gone to the airwaves.

You’ve probably already seen the commercial, but just in case, here it is. It’s called TheNextBigThing, and you should probably go watch it real quick. Once you have, go ahead and meet back here after the jump and we’ll talk it out.

Ever since the iPhone was first released, all of the talk has been about who’s going to win the smartphone wars. Originally, it was a 3-horse race between RIM, Android and iOS (With Windows Mobile following along somewhere in there), but now it looks more and more like RIM is out of the picture, or will be soon. That’s unfortunate, because even though I’m no longer a BlackBerry user, it’s best for everybody that RIM stays in the game.

But why? Wouldn’t it be better for Apple to crush the competition and become the No. 1 OS in the land? No, not really. The more competitive the market is, the more innovations will come out for consumption, and the better we all will be as a result. Don’t believe me? Let’s hash it out after the break.

It may be hard to believe, but there are in fact plenty of people out there who still own a phone whose primary function is making calls! The rest of us have fully embraced the world of mobile apps and are possibly on our second, third or even fourth smartphone purchase.

So what we want to know today is what the last smartphone operating system you used was before switching over to the iPhone. Were you a faithful Android user, a BlackBerry addict or maybe even a Palm Pre fan? Obviously, despite these being the most popular choices, there have been tons of other systems to choose from, especially in the pre-Android days! Since there is far too many in this last category to list, we’ve included an “other” category for you to write yours into.

After you cast your vote, leave a comment below and let us know the specific handsets that you’ve owned and whether or not you’ve been happy with the switch to the iPhone.

We had a big day at AppStorm HQ yesterday, as we’ve launched an exclusive preview of two new sites that are due to kick off in the New Year. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming both Android.AppStorm and Windows.AppStorm to our growing family of sites!

Although you may feel that your iPhone will always be superior to Android, there are plenty of iOS device owners out there who still use and enjoy Windows as their operating system! Read on for a few more details about each of the new sites…
