Temporary Android phone suggestions? (Sprint)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My current phone (a piece of garbage Rumor Touch) is finally dying on me, but I don't have an upgrade available until September. What would be a good used/NOS Android phone to get in the meantime that's fairly inexpensive (sub $100 if possible)? My carrier is Sprint.

I've been looking around on Swappa and Craigslist and found that the LG Viper, HTC Evo, and Nexus S all can be had for around $90. Would anyone recommend any of these or is there a better phone in the price range?

The only things I really care about are that the phone has wifi, decent web browsing capabilities, and the ability to run Spotify. I don't care much about camera or gaming ability or anything like that.

Thanks!
HotS machine.

Either the Nexus or the EVO.

The EVO probably has better rom support and whatnot, and will probably run better because of it. The Sprint Nexus S wasn't all that popular with developers.

I ended up finding a Galaxy S2 for $95 and just impulse bought it. I figured that phone was much better than any of the options I listed above. Thanks for the recommendation though!
