Default Help on picking smartphone!

Hi all,i am considering buying a new smartphone(i live in greece)...my phone company gives me a 140 bonus and i'd like to spend about 100-150 more.at this price range i saw that the best phones someone could buy are sony xperia u , sole , j and htv one v.(if something hasnt slipped my mind). i was almost ready to buy the xperia j when i thought that the single-core processor it carries may be a problem with the ice cream sandwich.so i would like your help to decide as i am not an expert just to mention i dont care about the camera at all, i just want a respectable phone that wont lag in the first app i lanch. thx in advance for your answers

You could get a nexus 4 for that money. It has a quad core processor, 16gb memory, 2 GB ram and is running the most up to date version of android.
But really at the end of the day you need to decide what you actually want the phone to do, read up about the ones you like that are available on the networks where you are. Even though you aren't concerned about a camera most decent phones will have at least an 8mp one. I would say go into a store and have a look at phones and try them out first before you buy.

Numerous single core phones run ICS without any problems, I'm a bit confused about you mentioning worrying about the Xperia because of its having a single core, the HTC One V is also a single core device. While the ability to run ICS on a single core isn't an issue, if you can get a multi core device in your price range that's available on your carrier I would definitely recommend it, doesn't help to future proof a bit especially when purchasing a new phone. Good luck.

Whatever you do, do NOT get an android that's 2.2. or lower.
