Dual core smartphone for under 150 quid?

Currently have an orange Monte Carlo. It's crap. So now looking for a dual core phone which will be faster and not blow a hole in me pocket. At least a 4 inch screen. Other than that, I don't give a falafel. Oh and used or new, I don't mind.

You willing to root and custom ROM it?

There is one if you are?

Optimus 2X, the only problem with that phone was (well, still is) LG's crappy software support. If you stick CM on it, you no longer have that issue. Oh, and you'll get far better performance from it.

G330 on it's way fairly soon on the new phone front and should just about slide into this price range. 2X beats it in many ways though.

Never thought I'd be saying this...I'd take the LG looking at them side by side. The LG is likely to have better build quality and materials quality, too.
