I would say battery life and the operating system!!!

For me, the most important factor with a smartphone is the Operating System. A phone can have all the bells & whistles in the world. If it isn't stable, is memory intensive, or is lacking in terms of quality and finesse, it's not worth anything. Have a strong, sound OS, and you will take the market. Look what Apple brought with iOS, and look where Android is going. Heck - look at the difference in Android now from when it started. It's an amazing leap in an of itself.

For me is battery because with out a good battery no matter what are the other features of the phone you wont be able to enjoy with out power.

physical keyboard is one of the most important features of a phone to me
371. dmdjp (Posts: 2; Member since: 04 Nov 2012)
For me, the two most important traits in a smartphones are:
1) Screen size, color accuracy, and higher pixel density
2) Good battery life
372. CBrown1231 (Posts: 1; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
The Camera. Its always available to capture moments with my 4 year old!
373. azulbearr (Posts: 1; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
Honestly it is a combination of OS, Screen size, speed, and unique features. Its a total package of everything.
375. quaez (Posts: 5; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
For me the screen is the most valuable feature.
380. lesterdtally (Posts: 6; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
I love the 4.7 inch ips display but i never win : (
381. ekaax (Posts: 4; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
OS, RAM, Processor, reliability and size. Need I say more?
382. dok2005 (Posts: 55; Member since: 18 Apr 2012)
Which smartphone feature is most valuable to you?
the feature thats most valuable to me is screen quality. if the resolution of the screen is great . Then i can watch all my videos in very good quality.
386. Drizzzle01 (Posts: 4; Member since: 30 Nov 2012)
Battery Life has to be up there for me along with the cell signal reception.
387. Drizzzle01 (Posts: 4; Member since: 30 Nov 2012)
"randomly select three" Oh my I wonder who will receive the fourth? Hehe
389. youlookfoolish (Posts: 122; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
Will it work with my work's email exchange? Will it connect to my cars bluetooth system? How easy is it to pair my workout stereo bluetooth headphones? Will my laptop recognize the USB drivers easily? How does the phone interact with the cloud??
In this day and age of manufacter skins, custom OS, and evolving hardware this isn't as easy as it sounds. Thanks to fragmented Android and the wall gardens that are Apple and Windows Mobile a true convergence device is still somewhat of a mystery if you don't totally buy into an eco system.
I personally cannot stand Apple. And as a Sprint user, Windows Mobile isn't an option. But Android is far from a sure thing and often times I find myself jumping from device to device in the hopes I will find something with the power and relaibility to keep my interest. But most importantly keep me connect at work, or in my vehicle.

the battery and screen will be amazing for an upgrade and present for my son ..... any of these phones will be great!!
391. JayTavarez91 (Posts: 8; Member since: 13 Oct 2009)
The most important smartphone feature is the processor for me; I have the S2 and I can't really take advantage of graphically intense games or other applications that require more processing power because of the dual-core in this aging phone.
Please pick me, Phone Arena! It'd be a very marry Christmas, if not, I wish you all one either way.
392. King9242 (Posts: 10; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
crazy processor on the optimus G and Google now to bring me information before i ask for it.
393. techvudu (Posts: 5; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
I'm all about customization and user experience. I require a phone to be setup exactly the way I want. Plus on the fly change it up. This is mostly the reason I choose Android over other platforms. No restrictions, no required software, no forced layout. I guess User Experience sums it up.
394. G2userLuvit (Posts: 23; Member since: 09 Apr 2011)
My fav. thing Is voice to text easy to use and saves me time.
395. chrisbrutality (Posts: 4; Member since: 16 Dec 2010)
I think the multitasking in the LG Optimus G is the most important, I would use it a lot.
396. PhoneCrazy09 (Posts: 4; Member since: 01 Mar 2010)
The most valuble feature on the phone is the onboard memory and ram!
397. jskup (Posts: 4; Member since: 28 Nov 2012)
Gotta have the best reception available to take advantage of the rest. Multiple bands, wifi, bluetooth, you name it
398. ChrisBrundage (Posts: 1; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
To me the phones processor is the most important. Because if it is a beast then the rest of the phone will be a beast as well. The phone battery and screen size as well as the phone OS and data connection means nothing if the phone's processor can't handle it.
401. thundabolt (Posts: 3; Member since: 01 Dec 2012)
OS is the most important thing because the screen can be 5.5 inches but if the OS sucks then u just have a sucky BIG phone
402. mxw74 (Posts: 2; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
the Optimus G for me, the ability to really pull off multi-tasking for work and school fits my needs perfectly.
404. tman67pr (Posts: 2; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
sprint offering of the latest phone in the market is the best gift i could honestly have, I cant wait to win the baby.
407. cjcorreia (Posts: 1; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
Note: the top says you're giving away 4 phones, and right above the terms it says 3.
408. Su-Rio (Posts: 51; Member since: 05 May 2011)
keyboard! use it everyday to type emails, record notes, and send messages fast when on the go
410. ChvyHD (Posts: 3; Member since: 14 Dec 2012)
Having a fluid screen that doesn't freeze up which is one of the most frustrating problems with phones.
411. rambo445990 (Posts: 2; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
The cpu, micro sd slot for expandable memory and screen resolution.
413. Cotner6680 (Posts: 2; Member since: 12 Dec 2012)
Mine big needs are memory storage and processor power. I love the look of certain phones as well...in this case, the LG Optimus G. Just as long as it's from Sprint, I'm cool. Gotta have unlimited data.
418. AChackes (Posts: 11; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
reliability is the most important feature
