So i bought yesterday new Lg swift (or optimus) L3 mobile phone (http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/LG-Optimus-L3-Review_id3009), and now i wonder what to buy if I sell it (I will decide after few days of testing)? I can sell it for sth like 110$. With this money after adding extra 15$ i can get:

Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660
Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830
Samsung Wave S8500
HTC Wildfire S
HTC Legend
HTC Desire
ZTE Blade (RBM ONE)
LG P500
Sony Ericsson WT19i LIVE WALKMAN

After adding more $ I could get SE Xperia X10 - but here i would have to w8 sth about a month...

So my question is which one of these is the best in ur opinion? Which one u have? How does it works?

For me it has to run smoothly all the time, has to be able to run programms without problems, has nice image (when u look at screen there can be no things which disturbs ur attention - u know what i mean), battery lasting for at least day (charging up in the evening), web browser running smoothly, and clearly visible (no problems with reading texts) generally speaking: phone which will give me a pleasure of using it.

I had in my hands Ace, Wave and Desire (HD). Ace is ok, works cool, not bad phone, not bad battery, smooth. Wave sucked a bit for me but nice battery, HTC Desire was the best of these 3 (very smooth, good screen, performance, HTC quality, but battery wasn't best).

I know Neo V is awesome would love to buy it, but have too small budget (the cheapest one costs about 165$, it's almost 50$ more than i can spend :/).

I guess I will go for HTC Desire, possible to get it for 130$, but there is the question, is it worth to invest 20-25$ more than I will have after selling LG? I mean phone must work smooth in normal usage not slowing down in any common tasks, but have also good performance in some extra tasks (surfing web, games, watching films, listening music). Desire fits to this?

Hard to say, HD was working very well but it cost lots more.
PS. Find a little test of phones on pclab.pl but I'm not sure if they don't cost about 800zl so it would be too much.

I would definetly not but à samsung, my gf has one (gio) with lots of problems! some of my friends has a htc and they like it!

So i suggest à htc;)

A little advice, type in Google 'phone name(like Samsung gio) and problems' do this for all the phones and then find the one which has, in your opinion, the fewest irrelevant problems;)

Good luck!

well anyway never ever buy samsung .... HTC is better

You should tell why never to buy a samsung and why the HTC phones are better. Since i never had problems with my samsung phones but hear enough complaints off ppl with HTC's.

Samsung FTW

Iphone is much more expensive with the same hardware like samsung. :)
HTC is also more expensive, but yet acceptable. HTc is well suited and resistant

first:
- very very very very very very ugly
- it is expensive, look at the One X and SGS3...
- shitty user interface (touchwiz just sux, looks like a little girl made it, so many colors: green, orange, blue, cyan, red... on the other side, HTC's ui: Sense is an eye candy, has lots of extras in it, like sharing pc's internet with the phone, if u dont have wifi / data plan, camera is way better etc.)
- locked bootloader (less development on samsung than htc, ROMs etc.)
- plastic, weak cheap plastic
- and much much more.... but these are the main things.
