Processing power. The way that phones are trending, the phone with the better processor is going to run better, faster, and smoother. As a former Sprint employee, I can't say enough how much a sub-par processor can ruin an otherwise good phone.

The battery life is important to me. I like a phone to either have interchangeable batteries, or a large capacity battery in order to get me through the day. (of course, I may just be feeling that way because the battery in my current phone is lasting only a little over half as long as it once did. It's probably time to upgrade!)

The most valuable feature a smart phone can have for me is GPS. Not only does it help if you get lost it's also really handy when you want to find somewhere to go when you're bored.
P.S. An LG Optimus G would be really nice :)

GPS stability is big for me. It seems small, but I've had a lot of troubles with my GPS being flaky when I need it to be accurate.

Reliable cell data connectivity. I work basically in a metal box without access to wifi so the ability to grab and hold onto a weak signal is a must!

Which smartphone feature is most valuable to me? LED notification light.

After recieving a phone without one I found that was for more usefull than wether or not my battery was removable. The notification light helps when a phone is not loud enough or the vibration isn't strong enough. That little light has become extremely valuable.

Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE. Oh yes, that swaggy-swell one.

I hang around the corridor and there sounds a beep. Everybody pulls out the smarties and get disappointed. Only I stay still with the smartie. Everyone staring at me. No moves, no sounds, not even whispers. I slowly unlock the screen - thhhh-cht - read the message. Everyone expecting me to start poking and deleting for some time - oh no. Another thhh-cht and they stunned. Jelly. Precise, soundless, soft, responsive, fast and never missing keyboard. Look up at me, mortals.

The most valuable feature for me is the reliability it offers - I want my phone to do what i poke it to. When I swipe - I don't want to see the previous picture or hear previous song anymore, I want the next one immediately. When I type - I want to be typed exactly what I pressed. And when I surf I want to see the site I chose before I change my mind. And when I need to call in the late evening I don't want to be afraid of battery being down.
That is what we all want our smartphones to have, not only out of the box but also out of the pocket after months. That's what is not so obvious unfortunately.

As with the first contest, my answer is the same. Longevity. There's no point being stuck with a phone on contract if it doesn't last. Software, hardware and appeal all must remain in my favor and working for a full two years.

LG Optimus G for me. It has a ton of internal storage. Plus it has enough ram to run multiple apps without much lag. I would use the Optimus G as a computer by adding Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. With the Optimus G in my hands, I can continue on my path of success.
