    I agree there. I personally have the s3 and love htc and samsung. Just didn't know if for the 200 range there may be something better then the s2. As far as htc I'm not sure what they would have at that price point. I had a evo 3d and loved it but that was for sprint.

    Are you talking on or off contract pricing?

    What carrier will he be using?

    I personally prefer HTC devices over Samsung, but what options there are will vary by what he carrier he plans to use it on

    Try Amazon.com and tigerdirect.com. Also look at the Samsung Galaxy Express.

    If you want a new phone, you might try the LG Optimus L9, it seems to be one of the best of the low end Android phones. While AT&T doesn't carry it, Amazon has an unlocked L9 for $169.

    Go with the HTC Amaze or galaxy s2. :) They were flagship titans at one point. Both are handy reliable phones. Get an Amaze for less than 180, or get an S2 for around that area.

    I would not get the L9, it's OK but you can really do better.
