    Before anyone says something: Moto G is out of the question. It's not sold locally.

    I'm looking to spend around $180 dollars or less. The website I have to use is rozetka.com.ua (we have to exchange another purchase so we will be getting credit there).

    I'm looking for:
    * 4 - 4.5 inch display
    * AOSP skin (I don't trust manufacturer skins unless you know from personal experience that the skin is ok)

    Rozetka Website
    180 dollars in UAH is ~1500 - be sure to adjust the price range on the left of the page.

    So far I've found
    Prestigio MultiPhone 5400 Duo
    Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1

    These companies aren't familiar to me as I live in the US so I'd appreciate some input from you guys!

    Edit: List of companies offered at the store for the price range that I am looking for (# must be over 0)



    Which companies should I look at? I'd prefer to stay away from Samsung because I haven't like my experience with it here in the US.

    Do you mean locally to your grandmother?

    I appreciate there may be import taxes if you were to ship it direct and obviously you would need to check regarding network compatibility etc,but if it wasn't too much over budget that's the one I'd be looking at.

    On my opinion Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1 is the best of it.
    I have one for apps testing... really great device.

    Imo it should be a device that she locally can get service for and get help with to learn to master. Is there anybody in her immediate vicinity who can and is willing to be her "helpdesk"? He/she probably has suggestions as they know the local market and situation (at least better than you, us, or your grandmother).

    Have you thought about how to handle it if you (she) needs to invoke warranty on that device? Where/how is she going to get that?

    I never acquire technical gear outside of the country it would be used in daily, even if it's half the price I would pay there, because there is no warranty on it.

    Of course with something like Teamviewer you could provide some remote assistance and trouble-shooting, but that certainly won't cover all eventualities!
