Help me to choose right android phone

by mishonacro / February 10, 2013 10:25 PM PST

hello guys,
I'm going to buy a new phone on android.
First I decided to buy Atrix HD but I can hardly afford it. then checked Atrix 4G but found out that it can't be updated to 4.0/4.1. I was told that LG G2x was a good option but I don't know how good it is.
So can you suggest phones with similar Hardware?

P.S. I don't live in usa and I don't care about carriers. I'll have to unlock it.

Good to me might not mean good for your usage

It's all relative and very subjective. All three of those handsets sound fine to me. Unless you have some specific usage pattern that requires the absolute fastest processor (etc.), why not simply grab a G2x(?)

main point is non-upgradable system.

maybe I will, if i don't find an alternative. only thing that concerns me about G2X is old version of android. as I know it doesn't have official 4.0/4.1 update and I don't know whether it will be stable or not after unofficial one.

why not consider samsung's phone in the similar price, after all their manufacturers are in Korea and samsung is more famous than LG

So the fame of the maker influences your purchase?
