I want to buy a secondary phone (unlocked, or netlocked to O2 Germany) for experimenting, playing around with Android, keeping up with the system to give better support to users of Android (I do some pc and general tech help on the side), play some games maybe (nothing necessarily intensive though), etc etc...
All I really care about is a device that's halfway decent specs wise to be able to run most apps.
I want to be able to use cyanogenmod ROMs, run at least JB, and if possible have some room left for more versions (4.2 and whatever comes after that).
I don't really care too much about the manufacturer, Samsung would be awesome though, I'd be glad to know my "best pick" isn't an LG device though haha. (not hating)
First and foremost, this is going to be tinkering's sake, but I want a buttery smooth experience at least for the OS, the regular apps and maybe some games (racing and anything extensive is iOS territory, so no need to cover that).
I'm on a budget here, yes, that's where all those beautiful decisions of Nexus 4, Galaxy S3 and Co drop out. Shi*e, I know!
Used phones in proper condition are fine with me.
I'd like to buy the device around next month - possibly after Christmas (or in early 2013) for around 100€, up to 150€ (>___<) if that really boosts the bang for buck ratio (I'm a geek at heart after all and not opposing spending some "unnecessary money" per se hence
Screen size not less than 3.8" or 4".
So, any suggestions?
edit: / addition:
Need to clear this up: the price range I projected is OFF CONTRACT.
I have the iPhone 5 on my contract already.
My Android will get a prepaid card.
