Hi,
I'm looking to replace my much loved but ageing HTC Desire. My first thought was the lovely HTC One, but frankly I can think of better ways to spend ?500. Nokia's Lumia 520 looks great for ?160, but Windows Phone looks too limited for me. What a shame Nokia do not make Android devices. So, what are the best Android options out there for this price? My requirements are:
- Good screen, preferably 4 inches or more. 800x480 resolution is fine.
- Good for web browsing, e-mail, social networks, etc.
- Decent keyboard.
- Recent version of Android.
- Battery allowing at least one day of moderate use.
- Reasonable sound quality via headphones.
- Reasonably fast and responsive.
- Enough storage for a decent number of apps (not games).
- SIM free and unlocked.

I appreciate that you get what you pay for and a ?200 device will not be as good as a ?500 device. I can live with a crappy camera and without high end games.
Candidates so far include the HTC Desire X, which has a great screen and seems to run well, but is now one year old; and the LG L5 ii, but that has just a single core processor and is reported to be slow.
Any advice or other ideas are much appreciated!
