I have been thinking of upgrading from this blade 3, since well its pretty laggy compared to 300-400€ phones.
I have been thinking of sony xperia v and samsung s3.
Xperia has official cyanogenmod.
Samsung seems to have better battery(usage), but it doesnt have qualcomm chipset so how good can cm be on the phone? It has Exynos 4412 Quad.
Galaxy S Advance has a Novathor chipset. I doubt there will be any good/fully working/stable CyanogenMod ports. If you want to use AOSP based ROMs you better stick with Qualcomm devices or get a Nexus.
Does that apply for exynos too?
Edit: Well seems that samsung s4 mini is 399e, 40e pricier than xperia, but it has qualcomm.
