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

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.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

A huge battery cqpacity and gorgeus scren size in a compact footprint. That's it. An micro SD card slot merely isn't important as a 32 GB of internal storage is more than enough. Of course, an SD 800 SoC, 2GB RAM, 1080p screen res and an 16MP camera with OIS are the minimum requrements. The incoming LG G Pro2 will fulfill those. Plastic, metal, polycarbone or whatever isn't important for me.

I am a big apple hater but I'll agree to that. 1. Kitkat is here ios 7 is here and Microsoft being backward of both the OS still hasn't launched an update. 2. Nokia fanboys are beyond pathetic. They'll probably win in every survey on tech blogs but still couldn't save their beloved company from going bust. Such hypocrites.
