Default Phone for me

Hi Everyone I need your help to find a phone that is perfect for me. I need an android phone that is around the 250 mark. It has to be able to run flash in the browser. And I hate htc sense so it can't be any htc phone nor can it be second hand. Thank you :-)

Welcome to the forums!

You hate Sense? Heresy!!!!

Once you've put a custom ROM on it, the ZTE Blade (Orange San Francisco) is comparable to a lot of mid range handsets. It's only 90 at the moment and it's mega easy to do.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace is also ok and within your price range.

How about SE Xperia Pro 2, Huwaei Ideos X6 or Motorola Defy .All these are V7 processor phones which are capable of Flash and AIR.

And Welcome to the forums

Thank you. I shall see if I can get my hands on the huawei as it looks perfect in every way exept from the battery life but its pretty much the high end for that price.

Totally missed the flash thing.

Unfortunately, there aren't that many decent mid range phones in the UK. Especially since HTC has been taken out of the equation.

I think your best bet would be the Defy. Although if you can stretch to it, the Experia X10? It's getting Gingerbread apparently.

To be honest the xperia pro hs a screen which is a bit to small. Preferably a 3.5" + is good.
