I know I should then choose in a month but as I have other reasons of needing to choose early. I also heard of the Acer Iconia A110 which is apperantly almost the same as the Nexus with a sd card slot but minus the nexus benefits. Any advice for which is best?

Sent from my HTC One XL using xda premium

Nexus 7 is very attractive but logically useless. Only WIFI, just 8-16 storage. It'll be fun for a month then you'll regret. So better go for THIS.
AFAIK, Atleast in India, Nexus 7 costs almost equivalent to this.

This is a way off comparison!
S3 Mini is a sub 20k phone and a phone.
Note 2 is a 35-45 range phone and is a phablet!

You should get your budget right first.
Explorer is a starting range phone, 8-10k while HTC Hero is a high end 30k+ phone and HTC Legend is sub 20k phone..

Yes, the sh*tty pop people listen to these days only to jack-off to the sexual lyrics most of the songs in that genre contain is sickening. Ok, I think it's time I go hunting for some Xperia S deals. And with it, gather all the mods and custom stuff that fit my taste buds along the way.

Thanks for the help.

BTW, can anybody recommend to me some good, not too over-priced covers for the Xperia S? After hours of searching, all I found to be somewhat decent are these:
http://www.spigen.com/sony-xperia-s-...in-series.html

Does anybody have any experience with them? They seem decent based on the few reviews and the overall look they have. My main target is to find ballistic cases, the ones with re-enforced corners. But, sadly, most cases like those are for the Ion and not the S.... Other than that, it completely sucks to see that Otterbox doesn't support most Xperia models. In fact, it only makes covers/cases for one model.

As you will surely buy the S, why we don't go to the XS section?

To answer you last question, we have a thread for Cases for XS. There are almost 70 pages of comments and more comments about it: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1534661

Please read all the stickies before posting anything. Me and KidCarter93 have a n00b friendly thread on Q&A section, where users can ask simpler questions that do not require a creation of a new thread, while there are links for many ROMs and guides (needs a urgent update, though).

Wow, you reply quick. And yes, I've been reading through the XS section for a while now since yesterday and have learned pretty much everything regarding rooting, unlocking bootloader, flashing custom android ROM, installing themes and mods etc. So yeah, I'm keeping myself entertained.

Thanks for all the help, BTW. Couldn't have come to a conclusion without it.

Question
im currently using a samsung galaxy epic 4g with 384mb ram and desperate to upgrade for more ram. i mainly use my phone for www and ssh/terminal, i dont game or take a lot of pics. im fine with the epic's 1ghz processor but the memory is killing me. my browsers crash a lot and always low or out of memory. also i mainly use wifi for internet and dont use 3g 4g so any carrier is fine. oh and rooting the phone is a must and with current xda dev support prefered.

im looking for suggestions for a better phone with 1gb ram, nothing fancy needed. i dont have a lot of cash to spend so buying a used phone with some cosmetic issues will be the plan. the last phone i looked up was a samsung galaxy s2 but that can be 200 bucks. if an upgrade is too expensive i can always try my luck on a cheap tablet or nexus. thanks in advance

Maybe in india there is so much difference in price but in my country i can get them at almost same price. i mean i can buy a new explorer and a used hero, legend in the same price. So dont worry about the price.
