Well....I have never had a smart phone....I am thinking of buying one.
Simple, I just need help, what is your advice? I will be using it for mostly...internet, I think. And those apps like Whatsapp etc. to be able to send SMS for free to other Whatsapp users.
Other than that I am not too picky..I dont mind decent videos/cameras megapixels, no need to be super good.
Thanks you all! Any advice appreciated!!

- WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen
- qHD 540 x 960 resolution

The Amaze is a good voice phone. Reception is average, and voices sound clear in the phone's earpiece. Maximum volume is a touch low, but it should be loud enough for most users. On the other end, calls made with the phone sound sharp and clear, with good noise cancellation. The speakerphone sounds fine, but it doesn't get loud enough to use outdoors.

I was going to quote myself, but decided since I have changed my brain to start anew.
I wanted these three basics, a FM tuner, removable battery because I carry 2 spares, and sd slot because I like my music local and not stored on some other website.
By that reckoning I couldn't even consider the Google Nexus 4, an awesome phone, quad core demaon. Technology solves my problems: I carry my old T-Mobile tap which can connect with wifi, though I dont, but has good FM tuner, some space for a few song but primitive music player. I use if for it radio, FM. You can buy wifi portable external hard drives some up to thou gigs which stream music to a music player on your phone or tablet, and you can store files on it.
So my next phone is the Google Nexus 4 which is half the price of the S III and 4, Galaxy Tab 2 and others of that ilk. It's unlocked GSM.
Buy the Google Nexus 4, buy a wifi external portable hard drive, and carry two solar powered portable chargers when you travel, and you can have an awesome phone with more local storage than any smartphone ever even approaches and backup power with the small solar chargers. It has mostly Google apps. On my roots I have never removed a Google app, only carrier apps.

I bought used telephone for 90€ that is Samsung S1. It's really pretty good, battery lasts about 1-3 day. Depends on how you use telephone, if you are playing games it can discarge pretty fast. I totally recommend Samsung S1 it's cheap and it's work that money.

Okay. The HTC One,
Samsung Galaxy S III, and 4,
and the Galaxy Note II,
and the Google Nexus 4
are all Quadcore 2 gigs RAM, save the S III, a dualcore. but good phone. I believe that the Nexus 4 is the better phone; it's pure Android, Google apps only, no skin to slow it down, and it is value sold for $349.00.
The others full price range from about $500.00 to $700.00 and are burdened with handset maker and carrier apps, though there are Google versions of the HTC One, $599.00, and Samsung Galaxy S 4, $649.00 which claim pure Android you better read reviews at PhoneArena before buying. Compare the tech specs of the Note II, SIII and S4, HTC One, and Nexus 4; compare the price tags, then decide.
I dont like the Google Nexus 4's lack of removable batteries, lack of upgradeable storage, and no FM tuner, so
I bought the Google Nexus 4, and
a Seagate Wireless Plus, 1 TB (creates own wifi network. it's small enough to fit in shirt pocket.),
another solar powered portable charger (have 2 now), and
a tiny Memorex AM/FM radio.
I carry a shoulder purse and wear pants with cargo pockets, and with a suit all fit easily in inside pockets and outside jacket pockets. I plan to buy another Seagate and use as network backup. The Seagate supports encryption.
The S 4 and HTC One, Google editions, pure Android, still cost too much and have some features you may not like.
The Google Nexus best phione, best buy, unless you like the skins, like Sense, that carriers and handset makers like, and the unnecessary and unneeded app bloat. Only Google apps I dont use Google Play Music and the foreign keyboards. Google Play Music I dont use because I stream my music and videos, all, from the Seagate drive.
The reason why some carriers (and handset makers) dont build some phones with sd slots is money; they want to steer you toward their streaming services or those of their partners. Unless they've partnered with Seagate, the maker of my solar chargers, and Memorex I've thwarted that.
Carriers who subsidize phones charge you monthly for them, even continue past retail price charging you. T-Mobile, to their credit, stopped doing that. Because I live in the world, not just the USA I only use GSM carriers. ATT and T-Mobile only choices I have here in the USA.
I use the metric system. USA been changing to metric for over 40 years, haven't yet. We're that way about CDMA versus GSM too. The world uses GSM.
I rooted mine and installed AdAway, Flash Player (with Dolphin), Nandroid Manager, Ultimate Backup, Online Nandroid, Root Explorer, and Orbot & Orweb

I bought the Google Nexus 4, quad core, 2 gigs ram, and uses IPS same display iPhones use. It costs half the price of the other quad wonders and it doesn't have a skin put on at request of carriers and it's pure android.
