Can anyone point me in the direction of a decent Android phone less than 200? I need a cheap replacement to hold me over for a few months as my Xperia Play's flex cable is going bad (I would get a new flex cable but I don't want to screw anything up.)

Im looking at

Option 1 and Option 2 but am a little cautious as both phones are Chinese made. (That and the phones are running really terrible specs.)

What Im looking for is something that can hopefully run Android 4.0+ and has a dual core processor (and works on AT&T).

Thanks for trying to help out!

Check Craigslist, you might catch someone else upgrading and pick one up on the cheap that way.

Yeah the only catch is that I need an unlocked phone as I am still in a contract.

I have no idea if it is a Dual-core or if it is $200, but the Samsung Galaxy Exhilerate is a low-end Galaxy that can be upgraded to ICS through Samsung Kies.

You can get a Pantech Flex (basically an HTC One S in a Pantech body) for $200-ish. I saw one on swappa.com (it's a site where people buy and sell their phones). I would check it out.

For a $100 you can get an unlocked Nexus 4. I now it's 33% more than your budget but it will surely last and out perform those 3rd market phones.

I'm guessing you mean "For $100 more," but yeah, I was going to suggest the Nexus. If you can get one while it's in stock, it will definitely be a great phone.

I actually got an Optimus G and I'm loving it (I somehow was eligible for an update...)

$50 for a phone that is pretty much a Nexus 4 minus the Wireless Charging, Stock UI and with an SD Card slot? Hell Yes.
