What SmartPhones really need

Google has come out with a pretty cool idea with Project Ara, where you can assemble your phone by picking and choosing from various options.

A set of people have also designed some interesting dongles that plug into iPhone/Android phones. But all of these stick out of the device, because of the way sockets are built

What I would really love to see in smartphones, is for a phone to have 3-5 sockets that exist under the phone. Sockets would allow dongles to have a certain height and still fit snugly into the phone. This would allow me as a user to choose multiple dongles, but not have them stick out of the phone/break off easily, but still allow me to customize my phone.

Any takers?
