Speed of device is most important.

I value multi-tasking and ease of switching between apps the most. On a side note, I think it's funny that a 4.3" screen is now considered "compact" (in reference to the description of the Photon Q). It wasn't that long ago when 4" was large and 4.3" was huge.

honestly the best feature on an android smartphone is google apps. free navigation plus maps just great! but for physical feature I think NFC is a nifty feature. I use google wallet a lot and it impresses all the ladies when I pay with my phone at a NFC pay station! ;)

For me, the most valuable feature is a notification light. It's blinking may drain battery but it helps when your phone is silent and has a weak vibration or isn't near you. The light makes it less likely to miss important text, phone calls, or in my case cell phone sales. Wining one of these means I got a notification light again (and a new selling tool lol)

The screen responsiveness is most important to me.

The camera is what I need most to be the best on a smartphone.

Durability and Speed. I find that if my phone isn't durable, I am constantly concerned about damaging it.

Being able to unlock the bootloader is a very important feature I consider when looking for a new phone.

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.

User interface. I desperately want quicknote and Q-slide on my phone.

A fast processor its the backbone of the device

Since data & voice coverage are more of a carrier detail than a smartdevice feature, I am going to have to say the User Interface is a most valuable feature and deciding factor when I'm chosing amongst all the great devices available.
