Poll results: What do you look most for in a smartphone?

Poll results: What do you look most for in a smartphone?
Last week, we asked you to single out the one component that is currently on your most-looked after list. We were actually very much aware of the seeming impossibility of answering a question worded like that, as we realized that smartphones are an entire package, and one great internal doesn't necessarily carry the weight of several mediocre ones. Which is precisely why we tried our best to give you a context: if all other things (components) are equal, what would you like more of the most? 

We were not surprised by the results and your comments. Many, understandably, found it hard to separate a single internal like that, but others did not. Either way, we arrived at numbers that largely correlated with what we've been seeing lately -- a big, lasting battery has shot up to the top of the food chain, with 23.13% of respondents backing up that notion. This makes sense. After all, we've certainly gotten over the minimum thresholds in just about every other area -- cameras (12.4%), displays (16.95%) and processors (17.93%) have all become more than capable enough, so much so as to draw all the attention to one otherwise common complaint with smartphones: they just die out way too quick. Indeed, with, unfortunately, still very few exceptions, the longevity of your phone is still measured in the hours, not days. But the results, as you can see, are far from unequivocal. For example, design, size, and color options, are still a major concern for most, with 17.74% of poll takers affirming as much. Respondents, it appears, are less interested in the amount and expand-ability of their smartphone's internal storage and the availability of 4G LTE radio, though the last is probably skewed, seeing as many countries out there are still yet to be graced with the next generation in networking. But enough talk -- go ahead and take a look for yourself.

Granted that all other things are equal, what do you look most for in a smartphone?
