AndroidFilter - Recommendations for an iPhone replacement?
November 4, 2010 4:07 PM Subscribe
Can anyone recommend me an Android phone? I've got a family member with an old iPhone that's on its way out, and since we have no desire to sign on with AT&T for two years of punishment and fees, I'd like to go with an open solution. Detailed requirements inside.

- similar in size/form-factor to the iPhone
- must be available in an unlocked, un-branded configuration (price is no matter)
- must not be restricted/crippled by a carrier (i.e. I must be able to flash with CyanogenMod or any other alternate distribution of Android)
- must be a touchscreen phone
- must be GSM
I've been looking at phones from HTC, but since I've never owned an Android phone (HTC or otherwise), I'd really like to hear from MeFites who have. Thanks!
