The operating system, as a platform for everything I'll do on the phone.

Just out of curiosity what would you do with a phone if it has the OS you like but the screen size is only 2 inch.

I've owned a 3.x" Touch Pro (Windows Mobile), a 4" Epic (Android) and used a 4" iPhone (iOS), and while I would probably shift more activity off the phone (either directly or via VNC), I'd adjust to the 2" screen if I needed to. I adjust to the touch screen keyboard when I press a 4¼" Evo into service. Neither carries significant on-board storage (< 1 GiB) or RAM (½ GiB), high screen resolution (WVGA) or high-speed data (WiMax), yet both (Epic, Evo) will do almost everything I'd like to do on a handset.

The biggest challenge (imho) is downgrading what I'd like to actually do with the phone.

A great camera has to be the most important feature to me. If the LG Optimus G had a better one I would have bought it already

I have a tie for the most important features:

Screen size
CPU
RAM
OS

Unless I'm four for four, I'm losing.

The screen is the most valuable feature to me. The Optimus G's 720p HD screen is the best HD screen out there, in terms of image quality and touch response. That is something I desire in my phones.

Consistent and reliable signal strength, for both sending and receiving. I mean cellular voice, data, Wi-Fi, GPS, etc. If it can't do it well, what's the point?

Signal Strength and the radios. Both LG Optimus G and Motorola Photon Q are leading in. If I can't get any signal, there is no use having a phone.

The most important smartphone feature is the processor for me; therefore the LG Optimus G would be perfect for me with its quad core processor humming along inside. I currently have a hour long commute that I use for mobile gaming and I like to play the intense graphically driven games like Shadowgun and Dead Space. If I had the LG Optimus G I could avoid the agonizingly long load screens and gameplay hiccups.

Please pick me, Phone Arena! It'd be awesome!

The ability to get timely o/s updates. Try living without it.

(By the way, until Motorola sends me a free Photon Q for sending an O/S broadside through my Photon by cutting off updates and end of lifing the phone nine months after I bought it, they can pound sand. )
