Looking to buy cheap used android phone, recommendations?
Hi all, I'm new to android (or will be soon, at least) and am looking for something to replace my current Verizon Pre 2.
I love webOS but am tired of all the bugs and problems I've been having with my Pre 2 (frankly my Pre+ was significantly better).
I'm looking to move to android and am looking for a cheap used replacement at around $100.
I'm currently on Verizon. I don't care for 4g or anything fancy. All I need it for is texting, email, calendar, and good battery life (although any battery life will likely be better than my Pre 2's, so I guess I'm not expecting much).
I have a slight preference for a physical keyboard, but I suppose it's about time I learn to use a virtual keyboard if need be.
So far I've looked at the Droid 2, Droid 3, Droid X, Droid X2, and Samsung Stratosphere.
I've read that although the Droid 3 is certainly better than the Droid 2 (duh), it's not a significant improvement, and I might be better off saving myself money by settling for the 2.
Any advice or other recommendations?
Edit: I've become interested in the Droid X. It's cheap (80 bucks buy it now with shipping on ebay) and seems capable. I don't need a super display and the upgraded dual-core of the X2 isn't a significant enough upgrade for me to feel like I'm missing out.
Does anyone have experience with the Droid X? How is it?
