I'm looking for a nice phone that costs less than 450USD. So far, I've found China to be the best bet, as their phones are often far cheaper. I have no brand-loyalty, but I want something with high-quality specs, an active support community and an unbloated OS, preferably rooted. I've been looking at the Meizu M9, but I've heard some negative things about the firmware being locked down, with Meizu bloat in the background. Is it worthwhile for the price? Also, are there similar-priced, same-quality alternatives?
