Quite good phones indeed. But you could've picked other 4 phones rather than "similiar" ..kohh..kohh.identical..kohh...Samsung phones. If i had to pick I would go for the Lumia or the Desire C. Even though the HP Pre 3 for $75 is called stealing.. Damn such a nice phone.. such a nice-goodlooking OS. Ahhh... Hp has gone mad!

if i had to pick one, my Options would be Live With Walkman Or Lumia 610
Lumia has Best Display and Live Has Best Processing power and Will Have the Best OS. ICE CREAM SANDWICH!

Desire c although slower cpu
But ICS , Beats and HTC Sense
Lumia if you like windows phone .
Samsung mini 2 if you want a s3 but could not afford one
WALKMAN for design

How about xperia mini and mini pro???
And u guys should have replaced mini 2 with xperia miro and galaxy y with xperia tipo and tipo dual.
all these xperias have got much better looks, ICS, most possibly better camera, better sound quality, bigger battery and some other little features too...

We don't really know how much the Xperia miro and Xperia tipo will cost when they launch, which is why we did not include them.

Wtf!! $75 with 1.4ghz procesor!!
I think PA should compare this to iphone4s

I would go for the Nokia 500 just cause I like Symbian and pretty good specs
and by the way PA the 500 has a 1.3 GHz processor after Symbian belle fp1 update

why didnt you include xperia mini pro? its the same price as live with walkman, has a physical keyboard, Bravia screen tech, FFC and all the rest of the features of live with walkman with means it kicks the crap out of all the galaxies here and the desire C.......hell the xperia mini is even cheaper then live with walkman and a LOT cheaper then desire C!
The xperias rule this price point
furthermore HTC explorer is almost the same price as galaxy y and its again a lot better then Y but didnt get a mention

I'd pay a bit more and get the Lumia 710, if it came to it. Good list

Where on earth can you pick up the Pre3 for $75? Last time I checked (over the weekend), they are still running for $300+usd!
It did note it is from the firesale...
Picked up a Pre2 with 2 touch stones over the weekend for less than $150. For us tech freaks/tinkerers, we don't really need eco-system, just creative mind and a great community.

I rather buy a better phone used if Im going no contract and get more for my money

Lumia or Desire C for me, but 75$ for the Pre would be a steal!

These must be prepaid/no-contract devices, considering that the Lumia 900 for AT&T is only $99 on-contract...
