Well, maybe 3.5 or 3.8 will do, too, but I didn't like a few more things about it.
Didn't realize you want a 4" Android for 150Euro.
Good luck with your hunt!

Yepp, old flagship seems like the way to go indeed.
lol looks like everyone else beat me to it, try an older flagship or other high end device, low end androids aren't the best I think some of the older (gets ready to duck) LG's aren't too bad, quite cheap as handset only, tho you might need to stretch a little, the HTC's and Samsung's more so, but they do dominate the market at the moment, Sony might be a contender, but at that price I think it might be a used phone...

Don't really give a damn whether it's easy or a challenge.
The nice thing about Sony's is that they're extremely simple to flash, even from OSX. It's basically just moving a zip to the SD card for ROM's, and a single terminal command to flash kernels. If you get an Arc (S) there are a heap of ROM's available too.

I want a phone actually.
If custom ROMs are your wish I would avoid HTC phones, particularly older ones. Due to HTC's notoriously poor release cycles support for them tends to either take ages or die pretty quickly. Although if all you want to do is have a play with Android have you considered a whole different class of device in the Nexus 7? Very powerful hardware and I believe it's in your price range
Yeah, I thought about the Nexus S, too...
An used Nexus S should be pretty cheap now, considering that there are two newer Nexus phones out already.
It's not the fastest phone around (single core, 512MB) but it's still smooth on JB.
