I'm glad that so many user requests are satisfied in this new Pi, I wonder how user's feedback are took in account in the design of any new Pi ?
TBH, we are all aware of the limitation of the products we sell, so a lot of the features added were pretty obvious, and were considered 3 years or so ago when the chip was architected (yes, it does take that long!). These were clear from the outset - more memory, faster I/O, HEVC support, 4k output support, better USB hardware (the USB on the previous SoC's required a lot of TLC). Faster 3D was a given as the VC5/6 were already designed.
So it actually unusual for user feedback to highlight anything we hadn't already thought of, but I do pass on anything that I see that is new and interesting.
