    I would recommend the Droid Razr. Not the Droid Razr Maxx. It is about $89.99. I find its very fast for the price. Faster than the new Iphone 5.

      Yo, I use the Samsung Galaxy Chat GT-B5330 and pretty satisfied with it. It is one of the few smartphones, which give both touchscreen option and a qwerty keypad. I opted for it as being an oldie guy :P, used to qwerty. But to be honest, I do find the Sony Xperia Tipo a more capable phone at almost the same pricepoint (1K INR more for the Sony).

    Have you thought about picking up a refurbished Nexus One? The drivers are officially supported by Google and there's already a highly developed support community where you can get lots of custom ROMs and other neat things.

    Considering that you can also get an extended warranty for around $20 USD extra, it's quite a good deal, since it guarantees you another year of operation.

    As with all unlocked phones you can use them with a prepaid plan and save tons of money, if you use the phone lightly.

    However, it may interest you that the LG Nexus 4 is easily the best UNLOCKED phone I've ever seen for $299 USD. I know that's a hundred dollars more than you were willing to pay, but with a prepaid plan, sometimes you can get a more expensive phone because of the monthly savings.

    I personnally use an HTC One V phone, and although it does not have the power of the One X, it has enough guts to run the applications I want on its little screen, and it is available for $150 (Canadian), which should be about the same in US $. I reall ylike it and it had good reviews. On the other have Samsung Galaxy Ace has too small internal memory and for the apps that cannot be moved to /sdcard, I quickly maxed out its internal storage.

    Really depends, are you the kind of person that likes to experiment with different ROMs and root their device? If so then HTC is not so much the way you want to go as they lock their devices down real tight. Not impossible but just make it a bit more difficult.
    Some suggestions though:
    Motorola Droid 2
    Samsung Galaxy SII
    Samsung Nexus S 4G

    I think you need to search in amazon and ebay to get many list of good android phone under 200USD. There are too many to list, many big brand like LG, Samsung, Sony, Google Nexus has cheap version of android, so i think you should try to see the pro and con yourself.

    While choosing an Android phone,it's always good to go with the latest one.So,Sony Tipo and Tipo dual(if preferring dual SIM) will be good for you.

    Just one thing-- try your best to find a used Nexus phone and you will not regret.

    If you can raise the price to $300 and wait until Nov 13 then I suggest the Nexus 4. You can also get the same phone for $200 but on T-mobile.

    Would request you to checkout Sony Xperia Tipo (both single SIM and dual SIM model are available) and the ACER Liquid Gallant Duo.

    I think more important is to have the latest android software. You can chose Samsung Galaxy Nexus I9250 with android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

    It depends on whether you just want to get the (unlocked) phone or you get the phone with a new contract or contract renewal ~ device costs obviously differ depending on the provider and contract.

    If you just want the phone I would say the HTC Desire C, Sony Xperia Tipo or the LG E610
