I need a new android phone but there are a ton of choices. I need an unlocked gsm phone for under $340. I want it to have micro sd, micro usb, good specs, and have it rootable/overclockable. Cyanogenmod would be nice to run as well as having hdmi. A glass screen would be ideal and a metal frame would be a good bonus. If you know of a phone that would fulfill most of these goals id appreciate it, knowing what I should compare at least would be awesome!

I would suggest the Galaxy Blaze 4g by Tmobile. For the price range, GSM, micro sd, etc it's a good phone.

thanks for the feedback, I would get the nexus but it doesn't support an sd card and the samsung one looks decent, ill probably get the atrix 4g http://www.newegg.co...N82E16875209266 with cyanogenmod and use the T-Mobile $30 month deal at walmart. otherwise I might get the xperia sola

how about the galaxy s2? it's still pretty fast, it will get a jelly bean update and the support from the dev-community is huge :)

The Nexus 4 is your best choice, powerful spec but at a lower price.
Anyway, you can also choose the htc one s.

Definitely don't get an HTC. The phones are good, but their customer service is shocking.
