I'm currently in the process of looking for a straight talk phone to root. The main thing I'll be using it for is for GPS, messaging (mostly incoming) and tethering to a laptop for emergency server management via html and possibly SSH. I'll also be using the phone to talk of course.
Out of the android phones available, is their one that may work better than the others for rooting and tethering?
I won't be playing games or anything on the phone, so I don't care about the processor or RAM on the phone, but I DO want a phone that has a fast interface. This is important to me. waiting 2 seconds for the phone to pop up or the dialer to start working is VERY VERY frustrating.
A phone that will work with their BYOD plan will work as well.
Thanks for any advice in advance!
