We are delighted to kick off our second Research Labs project of the week! Although it is not common to have two research projects in such a short period of time, we hope many early access members will take advantage of this opportunity.

This is yet another public survey that you are invited to participate in. This time, the focus is on smartphone features and the survey will take approximately 7 minutes to complete. As a token of appreciation, the first 50 participants who complete this survey will receive 100 Z-community points (The points will be issued within one week of survey closure. Unfortunately, it's a manual process at this time, but rest assured that reward points will be added to the right group of survey participants).

    First... *-*..  That was a fun survey

    That was fun and quick.

    That kind of made me a little dizzy. So many choices, but yet so many other features that we aren't allowed to know other than the short list of features provided. IMHO, they should have all stated whether or not they have SD card storage capability.
    Obviously the Apple devices wouldn't, but what about the others?
    It is one of the most important options for me, and I had no idea if what I voted for had the option or not.

    Man lots of choices out there to choose from. With the survey it helped me to see this.

    This is was an excellent survey.

  • Completed!

  • kimmtabbkimmtabb virginiaPosts: 4

    All done

  • tajlundtajlund Billings MTPosts: 29

    With some of those choices, expandable storage would have changed my vote.

    Good survey.  I struggled with screen size... I would never purchase a 6" phone, way too big.  Anything larger than 5" is borderline for me. 

  • ddrakeddrake Alpharetta, GAPosts: 318 ✭✭✭

    And I felt like it was missing some features.  Replaceable battery and memory card are very important.  Probably the most.  Then screen size.

    That was a good survey.

    Interesting survey, though I struggled with some of the choices as many had list of many good features, and then at least one deal breaker. brand usually doesn't matter unless it is apple, then there is a strong push to avoid due to the locked down software side of things, and the great lengths they go through to make it as hard as possible to repair/ service the device.

  • leternalzlleternalzl New YorkPosts: 30

    interesting survey indeed. Some pretty hard choices in there.

  • jasonejasone United StatesPosts: 2,118 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    That was a fun survey although it was a bit weird you throwing Apple in there. Only because it differs so much from Android. Even with less RAM and a smaller battery it often gets better performance and good battery life. Makes it harder to choose because it's like comparing apples to oranges.

    I almost always chose the one with the larger battery. Anything below 3000mAh these days doesn't seem to be enough. Especially with QHD screens, and I generally prefer QHD OLED screens.

    Cool survey.

    What is important for me at a phone: a max. 5.5 inch screen size, big battery, quick charge and fingerprint reader.

    Not to mention that the new Axon 7 seems to be the perfect phone. Can't wait for a detailed review.

    PS: this is also my first comment on this platform.

    battery was the main thing for me in the survey

  • mossy375mossy375 ShanghaiPosts: 73

    Great survey; I haven't seen one like this before.

    For me, the following were the most important:

    1. Android!

    2. Battery life

    3. Camera (mainly low light performance, but I couldn't really deduct that from the specs list)

    4. Price

    The rest isn't overly important for me.

  • alanquestalanquest KenyaPosts: 106 ✭✭✭

    Was about to get picky and say that I definitely won't pick an apple device but saw that they did have some good varieties. But for me the processing power and price point was some of the main features I looked at.

  • Awesome survey!

    Thanks Peter.
