Modaco.. I need your assistance

4 posts in this topic

I need a new handset.

Now i have some requirements which are more than likely massively unrealistic.. but ya know atleast im a little flexible.

Currently running an LG 2X and its getting on my nerves (random reboots and laggy etc regardless of rom)

I want:

a capable and 'snappy' phone

Running android 4 (ideally JB, but you cant have it all)

Screen as good or better than the LG 2x

Root is a must

Custom roms are a big bonus or atleast a stock android experience (i have stuck a new rom on every android device i have owned since the original G1)

Unlocked or unlockable cheaply to the 3 network.

HSPA+ would be wonderful but again i think this is doubtful

Budget:

£100 ish ideally (i know im asking a lot here).. but could stretch to £150 if it is worth while and a bit more future proof

2nd hand is acceptable (ave price of course)

Usage:

I would say medium usage, i use my phone for satnav frequently and in class with the camera to do various bits and pieces with an interactive whiteboard

Not a great deal of gaming (just when bored)

Would want it to last me a good year+

I have seen the g300 on offer for £100 or cheaper 2nd hand but unsure how well this would fit my needs etc and how it stacks up in comparisson.

Any help would be amazing!

The Xperia U is nice and cheap right now. Not got a very good camera but it'll do.

Unfortunately it won't be getting JB, but there are plenty of custom ROMs (ICS) over at xda.

Looks good apart from it may be a little bit on the small size for my thumbs which might be a bit of an issue.

Why don't you go for the g300, it's got good spec, and good community with lots of custom roms. Depending on how many apps u install, it can be 'snappy'.
