Hi all abrowser!
Now decided to part with my phone Nokia e-series, which faithfully served me for almost three years, and, in connection with the recent events with Symbian, decided to change the brand of phone and, therefore, the platform. After some deliberation opted for Android (of WebOS was not impressed much iOS expensive in iPhone4, Bada will not go negative because the experience of using Samsung, AMI all members of the family (had 4 phones, all greatly angry, now dislike left)). Regarding devices, the choice fell on the HTC Desire, HTC Desire Z, Acer Liquid E, Motorola Milestone XT720, the Acer Liquid Metal. The company is a bit patchy, but after analyzing all of the devices stopped on these and are repulsed by them.
Two basic questions
1). Device requirements are? In the first place — comfortable working with the Internet (especially sets of longer texts — there is, of course, Desire Z out of competition), adequate viewing of documents (text, spreadsheet, pdf and similar), good sound as the speakers and headsets, high-quality screen, including watching videos (any video vkontaktike included); in the second place — at least prilavki configuration — that is, the better the office and the audio-video software, the better. Don't want to be in the market, roaming in search and testing applications, low brakes, no amnesia vendor to run the update (and, you know, that even now during the Android 2.3, there are devices with 1.6, though vendor isn't going to upgrade to at least 2.1), the interface is not overloaded with a bunch of junk and SVISTA-perdelok (this is speaking of shells).
In short, performance+functionality+time+relative strength = the best on these characteristics, the device

2). The question regarding prices. Don't want to bathe with ordering from abroad (although if you have a convenient and quick sources, you'll be glad of the information), so, without further ADO, I went to Yandex Market and a bit fell into a stupor. Take, for example, the HTC Desire, so its price range is 14000 to 24000. What caused this variation? And it makes sense to buy in stores, where prices are about 14-15 thousand? For example, in this.

And I advise you to go to the resource profile, for example 4pda.ru and peruse the forum threads in the selected models. Of course for a long time, a lot of information etc. but we are fully armed with information and the device will not throw a nasty surprise at the most inopportune moment.

1) Personally I am completely satisfied with Desire'ohms. Say that Android 3.0 will, as including a processor of 1 Hz. Desire is very strong in my opinion — 2 times dropped it on the pavement with his height of 1.90 is the result of small scratches on the case, the display is not affected. Time — slipping, but there is extended battery. The HTC Sence is great. Work with the Internet, video, and PDF on top. A very good screen. The sound is not complaining. Text input is nice, too. Happy with the purchase as an elephant to this day. Twisted in hands HTC Desire HD — my opinion is that 4.3 is already a lot for a phone but the large display has its advantages.

2) Scatter the cents as some of the gray phones have not been Rostest — have of.warranty HTC in Russia. Took in this store Desire. Immediately said — without Rostest. Year warranty and year of free repairs (and components account). Other in the same store sold the Arabic version of Desire: a pair of applications in Arabic, which are not removed, the OS is not updated. To reinstall OS it did not, lives. It is his right. So be careful.

I will not advise, I can only say about the store on your link:
Took it 3 times the HTC HD2, all 3 phones are fine.
Just take there HTC Topaz.
\r
My personal tip: take HD2. Here and OS selection, fairly modern hardware and a great comunity.
\r
By the way twisted Desire HD in hand. It seemed to me flawed. Honestly.

At the time, took the Acer Liquid, was satisfied.
Of the minuses — a bad sound, as in speakers and in headset. Treated buy a normal headset and installing custom firmware with other sound wood.
The battery holds poorly.
\r
Liquid E far removed from its predecessor, we suggest to take Metal. With battery it's all right, the processor is better than previous models.
What about his speakers — I do not know.
\r
About the strength of my liquid can withstand all the bullying. Use without film, and constantly dropping. Scratches on the screen a little, if you don't look — don't notice. On the case damage is not visible.
If only the liquid metal is not stepped back in something else, which I doubt, then it's right for you.
\r
Right now my liquid is some custom firmware 2.2 if you are going to reflash for something more flexible than the standard firmware, the liquid community is large enough, there is always a choice.

Look at the Motorola Defy — but it will still have to order, but he has a "zest"-pylevlagozashchishchennoye + new batch go without marriage dynamics, and Андроидом2. I agree, what better way special resources to visit the same 4pda or motofan. I would personally chose out of Desire, XT720, Defy — but the last one really hurt like

If the typing is so important, then there is only the desire z.
\r
If you look at the whole experience out of the box and have the htc, and Motorola about the Acer don't know. on set of parameters I would take the milestone xt720. in principle, I intend to buy )
\r
about the price spread. I got prices from the lower bound (as a rule)
