[Q] UK phone recommendation please
I've had my fun with the old Blade, then G300, then Desire S, then Desire HD and last January I purchased a One X+ from Vodafone.
Unfortunately this last purchase was of poor planning. Within weeks of buying this "latest" phone HTC decided the phone was old hat and out comes the M7 (One). I was really miffed about this, Vodafone dropped the phone from their sales within weeks of launching it too. Bit shi**y of HTC if you ask me but that's life I guess and the world of mobile manufacturers.
The phone is unlocked and rooted and there is a limited amount of dev work going on for this phone on xda (those few do a great job), but the phone has pretty much come to the end. Sense 5 has filtered out for the phone slowly, but I can't see HTC supporting it any longer. I really expected to enjoy this phone more than a few months!!!
I might sell it, it seems the resale value is still pretty good and I could easily purchase a Nexus 4 or other dev friendly phone and still have some change left over.
That being said, can anyone recommend a phone for £100 or under, decent size screen, decent specs and above all is dev friendly (plenty roms, active community, easily unlocked/rooted)?
I'm in the UK and use the GiffGaff/O2 network, so it would need to be unlocked/network free. Apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum. I was unsure where else to ask.
LG Nexus 4:: Official AOKP 4.2 rom
Samsung Tab 2 10.1:: CM10.1 official build rom
HTC One X +:: Insertcoin 4.1 Sense 5 rom (phone retiring from service, anyone want to buy?)
