    Hi all,

    I'm looking to replace my old, buggy and barely functioning Samsung Galaxy S.
    The budget is up to 400$ and the key features I want are:

    1) A fast and responsive deice(Good CPU, RAM, Touch response etc.)
    2) A good camera
    3) Not too big: Glaxy S3 size is the maximum, an iPhone 5 size is great.
    4a) A popular model so that online support & accessories are easy to access :)
    4b) I think It has to be Android or iOS for the same reason as 4a.
    5) this is not exactly a feature but I will point out that I live outside of the US so I need an unlocked or at least an unlock-able phone.
    6) New phone (not used).

    So far I think the Galaxy S3 is a good option, but I'm open to suggestions.
    Also, if I choose to go with galaxy S3 - which one should I get? there are several models and so far the i9300 seems the best from what I checked out.

    Thx in advance, ZBBZ.

    The S3 is a great choice. Just make sure the model you buy functions in the bands used by carriers in your country.

    Note that the i9300 does not have 4G capability.

    A new Nexus should be announced any day now, that will most likely be under $400. That is if you have AT&T, T-Mo, or another GSM carrier.

    Samsung galaxy s3 would be the best option under this budget, as it has loads of features.

    If you're still looking, a nexus 5 or motoX are both awesome.

    If you properly formatted and put a decent ROM such as cm11 based Mackay ROM on your S1, it would fulfil everything you ask for... :)

    My little S1 is as fast as my nexus 7 with KitKat on it...

    One Plus X is what you are asking for. Just give it a try and experience something new.
