I just recently bought my Samsung Epic 4G Touch. Works great with CM9. I probably wouldn't upgrade my phone anytime soon.

Given my satisfaction with Samsung devices, I'm tempted to get a Galaxy Tab. The ASUS Transformer line of tablet/netbook combos is also quite appealing (I like having the option of a keyboard, and if I recall right the newer ones have quad-core CPUs, which is awesome for a mobile device).

I vote the S3, mainly because I've had excellent experiences with Samsung devices (both Android and non-Android). They tend to be quite reliable for me, and they perform well.

I'm quite sure this will be my new one, because of the specs/price. A phone with a better "ratio" probably won't be released in the near future, I guess.

Even they're both really great phones, I suggest getting the S3 because it's got a replaceable battery, whereas the One X battery is internal. The S3 has got more storage space for all the high end games which run slightly better than the One X.
And even though the One X feels a bit smoother overall, the performance power of the S3, aswell as what's mentioned above, makes it a definite choice.

Definitely the Xperia U.
The HTC Desire C is too outdated to be able to keep up with the technology that phones need these days.
The Xperia Mini Pro has got a slick UI and ok performance but nothing too special about it. The tiny screen makes it difficult to view desktop sites aswell, but I did love the keyboard on it when I got one. It just made texting away so much easier. Battery life is terrible though.
The Xperia U has got a better processor than the other 2 devices, it's got a couple of brilliant devs working with it to improve it further. With average use, it will last you through the day comfortably. The only real downside to the U is that there's no SD card slot, so you have to make do with the internal storage.

Which nexus do you mean? You talking about the Nexus 7? If so, it's already at a great price for it. The S3 will set you back even more.

Galaxy S3 or E4GT?

E4GT is cheaper and ppl say almost the same as S3 to just wait for S4


S3 is the S3

I'm on a prepaid network so I will pay retail price for the phone.

Opinion?

Can someone please suggest me a few dual-core android based phones? I was away for some time and so I was not able to keep up with the new releases and with the price drops of the old ones.
I'll be using it outside US so it should be SIM unlocked so that I can put any GSM SIM.
Can be a World phone or GSM only phone.
I can consider buying used or refurb phone.
Should have good dev support.
Budget is $150-$230

Considered Motorola Photon 4g. What are my other options? Anything HTC?


Thanks

The best 2 out of those, for you, are the Motorola Razr Xt910 and the HTC Sensation XE because they have exactly what you asked you.
But, out of those 2, I'd suggest the HTC because it has dual core 1.5 processor but the Razr is slightly lower at dual core 1.2. Plus HTC is smoother for general use aswell.

Both phones can perform pretty much any task with no trouble whatsoever but the S3 does it all so much easier without pushing the processors too hard.
I'd say only go for the S3 if you play heavy duty games on your phone or get extremely heavy use of your phone.
If you don't do the 2 things mentioned above, then get the E4GT because it'll easily be able to handle any other functions.

There's the LG Optimus 2x, HTC Sensation, Xperia U.
If you like the idea of having a HTC, then the sensation is a good choice. 8MP camera, dual core 1.2 scorpion processor, up to 32gb expandable memory and loads of dev support.
Xperia U is always a good choice aswell. It's specs don't quite match up to the sensation, but still a good little phone.
