What's your smartphone dealbreaker?

3303 votes

There are loads of dealbreakers we can think of, such as bad battery life, poor camera quality, no headphone port, no wireless charging, no fast charging at all, and a poor commitment to software updates.

Me? I have a few dealbreakers, but the main one is simply poor camera quality. I love taking photos on my phone and use it as my main camera platform simply because it’s with me all the time. So it makes sense that good camera quality is a must.

Either way, you can tell us about your smartphone dealbreakers via the poll. You can also choose “other” and leave a comment if your specific dealbreaker isn’t listed.
