    OK Recently I had a very bad malfunction happen to my Samsung Galaxy Precedent, now I actually liked this phone for the most part (my 1st android but I have actually toyed with many others) But anyways, I am curious as to what are some really good Android phones that are unlocked and KNOWN to be WORKING on their (Straight Talk) sim cards. Please give me some concrete and sound evidence as to why you may think the said phone(whatever you may choose) is worthwhile of me purchasing.
    I truly wish to stay beneath the $300 range Preferably, unless I can get enough evidence as to why I should purchase one that is more.

    Please and thank you for all the information :)

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus is probably the safest bet. I believe Straight Talk piggybacks on AT&T and T-Mobile's networks (depending on SIM) and the Galaxy Nexus is one of the few phones that support both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G.

    Hmmmm OK, I was hoping there was more choices.
    Plus I really love the Nexus but it does not support sd cards, which really bites, but me love the Ice Cream Sandwhich..

    Sony Experia Arc S (should get ICS at some point) $350
    You're options would really open up if you're willing to buy something used. Swappa has a great selection. Lots of Galaxy S2s from about $400.
    But, a Nexus at $400 is a steal. I love mine.

    Pretty sure the Arc S is one of the 2011 SE phones already receiving the ICS update. I've already updated my Xperia Ray to ICS.

    Main: Ice Cream Sandwich roll out started

    However, the Arc S only has a single core CPU (granted, running at 1.4GHz) compared to the Galaxy Nexus' dual core. The internal ROM is also really low and could easily be filled up installing just a handful of apps. Seriously, $400 for the Galaxy Nexus is a very, very, very good deal.
