Galaxy S2 Around 24.5 Locally. Great All rounder Huge Custom ROM Support. Xperia S Around 26k Good developer Support with sony headed AOSP Project. Optimus 4X Around 26k in Univercell online Store. Most Powerful in this list Locked Bootloader. LG is very slow in Updates. I used to Have Optimus one before this and used to run Custom roms Always due to bad Manufacturer software.I have been using WP7 Since then. I am also Open to suggestions for new Devices.I will be using this device for atleast 1.5 -2 years so Custom Rom support i am looking is only for Future OS Updates.
