Battery life hands down is the most important smartphone feature to me. I currently carry the iphone 5 and Note 2 around on a daily basis and when either is even close to dying I make sure I juice em up ASAP. I have purchased battery pack cases for both to avoid having a dead battery while I am out and about (even though with the 3100 mah battery in the note it rarely gets below 50%). You can have the best camera, fastest processor, and brightest scree, but when your phone dies you have a shiny, very expensive paper weight.

I feel that the phones needs to have a really good processor, great camera, excellent memory. Also it should be 4GLTE compatible.

Phonearena, thank you so much for throwing this promotional giveaway. As a Sprint user, I truely appreciate it. :)

As for my number one feature that I look for when buying a smartphone, it would be BATTERY LIFE. Nothing is more important as the extra features don't work unless it can be powered on.

I am not a person that likes using cases (unless I'm at the gym), as I'm very careful with my phone normally. So the idea of buying cases with built-in batteries for accommodation does not interest me.

The increase in mAh in newer phones is great! However, they don't tell the whole story (iPhone 5's 1440 mAh vs Galaxy Note II's 3100 mAh). I usually check out other editorial review's battery length tests as a testament to the phone's power consumption.

Am I in the right place? The link doesn't lead to a new give-away, but to this one which has ended.

Anyway...

To me the most important feature is the prosscessor speed. With the ability to almost seemlesly move from application to application is key when you bundle it in with lte speeds.

Although I have never owned a smartphone I think good smooth user interface/OS is the key.
Most of my friends complained about lags on their phones and it can be very annoying.

Most valuable feature for me is build quality of the device, but more than just the material - components such as battery, screen quality, and stability (due to processor/RAM) also play into that.

If I had to pick an overall feature, I would say the screen size. Next would be speed and clarity of the screen.

The smartphone feature that is most valuable to me, sadly, is the screen - the richer the color, better the battery life, size, feel on my fingers, presentation, everything. It's so sad but is so true.

289. Rio1983 (Posts: 25; Member since: 03 Dec 2011)


I love the screen size as long as the battery allows the phone to operate in a timely manner. Hate having a great phone and the battery life is only good for 4 to 5 hrs.

I think the most important feature is the ability to download new apps and games, since without this feature a smartphone is just a really fancy feature phone.

295. QuadCorePro343 (Posts: 4; Member since: 03 Dec 2012)


With the hardware being so close on every phone the most valuable feature is deffinetly software. More specifically OS updates. I marvel that apple still keeps phones like the iPhone 4 up to date. By comparison- could you imagine the original HTC Evo(release same time of iphone4) having 4.2 JellyBean? It sold really well,kept Sprint afloat, and was dubbed "The iPhone Killer" but fizzled after being dead in the water when it came to updates. It was a great phone that spawned the Evo shift,Evo3D,and the Evo 4G. But whats the use if you buy a killer phone with amazing specs if its not going to be supported with the latest updates?
