But in my opinion, I would prefer the Nexus 4 just 'cause I like it more, it's really a personal opinion matter.


Are HTC's less supported on XDA? because both are android.
Yes i know they are not at sale in the netherlands. Uhm prefer to buy it via via in the USA, and send it to holland. But specifications about the phones witch one is better? I saw a vs to note2, and the droid wins easy of it. I know HTC SENSE is a very big application heavy so smoothnes is requierd..

I don't know about HTC, but Nexus 4 is, well, a Nexus device, so it is almost a rule that it get a lot of developement.

I think HTC gets quite a lot from xda, I've a ds and it does ok, and from what I've seen most of the other devices do ok despite the locked bootloader

HTC gets a lot from XDA, but I bet that doesn't get as much as the Nexus 4 will have. IMO, on XDA the Nexus devices are considered WAY better because of the willing of development from Google and easily unlocked bootloaders, and so on. Of course probably the DNA will get lots of support here, but I think it won't have so much as the One X for example, because it's only avaiable on the US.

Question Medium Sized Android Phone
I'm looking right now for a medium sized android (4.5 - 4.3 inch) phone to replace my broken GS2

I don't care about OEM skins (Sense etc.) since I will probably be flashing CM10 as soon as I get it.

It must be rootable and have some developer support for it.

I would love a quad core device with a high resolution screen but sadly those kind of specs only come on 4.7 inch+ superphones.

Battery life is not too inportant as long as it lasts a days worth.

I am in the UK so cannot get the MIUI Mi two unfortunately.

So far only the HTC One S has caught my eye

What else is out there? Thank you for reading

Nexus 4. The on screen buttons reduce the 4.7 inch screen to about 4.5 inches

Most volume: SG3 or Evo LTE?
I'm definitely getting either the Galaxy III or the Evo LTE. I've narrowed it down that far but I want to get the one that has the loudest speaker.
I'm old. I'm almost deaf but I'm sticking with one of the two above. I currently have an Evo 3G and have heard crappy old style flip phones that have louder volume from the music player angle.
I know the Evo has Dre's Beats thing but I've heard that the speakers aren't as loud as some would like. I'm just trying to find out which one is the loudest. No opportunity to go to a store that has working versions.

Thanks.

OBVIOUSLY the Nexus 7 is better. Way better. With the tab 2 you can do calls and texting with a SIM card, that's basically the only positive from the tab 2.
