    Hi,
    I am thinking of buying mobile phone. I would like to choose from those three:
    HTC Incredible 4G
    Samsung Galaxy S2
    Motorola Droid RAZR

    The mobile phone will be used to test application written by me ( I am newbie).
    All of them have installed Android 2.x. So, I will have to upgrade/root to Android >= 4.

    Is it easily possible with my phones? Which one?

    Please recommend me something similar if you think your proposition will be better.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm no rooting expert, heck I've only successfully rooted a Nexus device, but going from the list you provided above I wouldn't consider any of those phones. The S2 and Razr are from 2011, the HTC is 2012.... I think - try pick up a more recent phone if you are looking to test apps written by yourself.

    Any of the Nexus devices would be a good start, Nexus 4, Nexus 5 etc?

    I would recommend the Verizon or Sprint moto e 2nd gen (2015). It runs lollipop 5.1 and can sometimes be had for around $40-50 on sale

    Do you use the Moto E as your daily phone?

    I did a while back for a short time, but am on the note 5 now.
