Default Good phone for around $250?

It needs to be unlocked. It can be refurbished or used in good condition, I don't mind. I need a decent processor and a good amount of ram. Also, it needs a micro SD slot. The HTC one x looked fantastic, but one of the reviews said there isn't an SD slot in it, what's up with that?

Thanks for any insight!

Nexus 4. You can almost get a new one for that price.

And its true, no SD card slot on the HTC one x. Or any of their newest models for that matter.

Same with the nexus.

That's the precedent Google wants maufacturers to follow

If you want an SD card, you'll have to look at Samsung and Sony.

Aghh that's awful. I can't contain my music collection on 16 GB, and there's no way I'll be able to do it with 8

It's so convenient to have it all there, I don't think asking for an SD slot is too much. Maybe I'll just have to get used to using Google play for all my music. I just hate how I need to use data to play a song when I'm on the go if I don't have it downloaded already.

Besides that, the nexus 4 looks fantastic. Thank you

If you're content on an SD Card slot, a used Galaxy S2 can be found for under $250. It's a bit dated, but still a solid phone. Swappa has a few:

I think I'm gonna go with the nexus 4 16 GB. It's just too good of a price right now to pass up. I can use the cloud for music, I don't think it will be that big of a deal. Thanks guys
