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.

The OS, what good are specs with an OS that cannot use the specs to full potential

The most advanced technology is nothing more than a paper weight with out power. Battery life is something that my phone literally can't live without.

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?

The processor, battery life, and a physical keyboard are the most valuable options for me.
