Giveaway: Optimus G, PHOTON Q and Galaxy Victory for Sprint #2
As promised, here's our second giveaway, where, thanks to our partners from Sprint, we'll be presenting you with three marvelous smartphones: the LG Optimus G, the Motorola PHOTON Q and the Samsung Galaxy Victory! As a reminder, next week we'll be giving away a total of 4 handsets - these three here, plus an LG Mach. What better way there is to end the year?!

But enough small talk, let's take a closer look at the handsets we have for you this week:

LG Optimus G: Well, does this phone really need an introduction? It's one of the very best out there right now, with a massive 4.7" HD screen, Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2 GB of RAM, tons of internal storage and Android 4 ICS. What makes Sprint's version special is the presence of a 13 MP camera!

Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE: This is also one feature-packed device, featuring a 4.3" display for those who enjoy more compact phones, a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU and what is not something that you see that often nowadays - side-sliding QWERTY keyboard!

Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE: Now here's a sweet mid-ranger that also packs a decent punch with its 4" screen, dual-core Snapdragon S4 Lite processor, a gig of RAM and even LTE. Make no mistake, this is one phone that knows how to get the job done!

But, a smartphone is only as good as the network it runs on, and what can really add value to these products are Sprint's Truly Unlimited plans, which are... unlimited, even for LTE data! To learn more about their advantages over the other carriers' offerings, go here.

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 data - whether it's from WiFi or the carrier's data plan, the really useful apps on your smartphone rely on the ability of the phone to transit and receive. Without it, we'd still be tethering, like we did in the 90's with our Palm Pilots.

The Most important to me is sms and dialer or phone calls. It's imperative that a smartphone be able to communicate lol. But, if those two things are excluded since they are available in all phones, then the screen is the most important to me. It's the one thing you interact with most in a phone.

As I said in the previous giveaway, Multitasking is the one feature I can't live without. I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note II, and the ability to read from an email, or web page, while working in a Telnet session, is my smartphones greatest asset. Without this, Telnet sessions would disconnect when moved into the background. I am an IT Professional, and this is my most valuable feature.

Got to have continuos support -- quick updates, quick (software) fixes if needed. I don't care for the specs, because in today's time mostly every high-end smart phone is acceptable.

The most important feature to me is the Operating System. With the right O/S, hardware features can be compensated for if not outright fixed through software packages and configuration settings.

The most important feature in a smartphone is it's OS. If a phone has a fantastic OS and great hardware then the OS will look smoother than it ever will. Most dual-core mid-range devices perform really well with Android 4.+ regardless if it's not the best device out there !

The most important feature to me is the processor. Smart phones do so much and we use them for so much more than phones, it needs a processor that can keep up! My 2nd criteria is the camera, as I always have my phone with me, but rarely have my camera. Thanks for the opportunity!!

The most important feature for me is how future proof it is. I hate having to buy a new phone every two years because mine can no longer keep up with the standard. All three of these have dual core, over a GB of ram - I don't know when these features will be considered low-tech, but I assume they would all last me a good amount of time.
Future proof is my most valuable feature.
