Need advice on what phone to buy, budget $200-300
Title says it all. Lost my LG G2x, hoping someone can advise me on what phones fall within my budget as "used." The budget's $200-300, and I'd like to keep it that way.
Phone should be easily flashable and have a good track record. I wasn't all too happy about the Tegra 2's drivers not being "open" enough and easy to work with for the modders, and I hear that contributed to a less than optimal ICS experience. The phone also needs a good track record for reliability. The problem with the G2x was that even after rooting/flashing, I'd still get the occasional random reset. Great battery life is always a plus, but I tend to get extended batteries anyway.
The phone will run on T-Mobile's $30/month prepaid plan.

How about a One S? I'm going prepaid as well, and I have been considering both the One S, One X, and GNex, all of which I have seen in the $275-325 range locally. Typically, the One X and GNex are over that, but I see the One S all day at $300.Bryan
