So I have an HTC One V, with Virgin Mobile. My first smartphone. Boy is it a piece of crap. 1ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon, 512 MB of memory, etc but jesus it's so damn slow. I got it in December, I don't play mobile games, i just want everything to respond immediately. But it doesn't happen with this phone. Everything lags. I have eight apps installed: Facebook, Spotify, Unified Remote, Ebay, Snapchat, Amazon, Autostarts, and Advanced Task Killer Free. I had the crappy stock sense ROM but it was even worse, so I got some Rhythmic Rom thing, based on Cyanogenmod. Still hardly any performance increase. I've cleared the cache, moved all that I can to the SD card, the phone still sucks. it randomly locks up for no reason, the web browser on my 3DS is faster than this thing. I don't care about playing games, I have no preference for Android or IOS or Win8, I just want recommendations for a phone that will respond immediately, like my PC does. All i really use it for is listening to music, Facebook, texting, calling, and Googling stuff. That's all i need in a phone.
TL;DR I need a phone that will respond like a well-maintained PC, but I don't need much power since I don't game.
