    So i m sick and tired of waiting for the nexus 4.. Out of stock on ebay and some sites quoting crazy prices (34K for 8gb)..
    Also reading many negative things about the phone like the breaking of glass and buzzing earpiece..
    Need to buy a phone asap.. Budget is 30K (+2-3K)..

    I will be gaming a lot.. heavy games like dead trigger, shadowgun, most wanted etc..


    So i have 3 choices:
    -s3 (NO!! :p)
    -16gb htc one x
    -a month used note 2
    which one should i go for??
    Help guys :)

    Dunno How the gaming would be. But purely for awesome battery life I would recommend the razr maxx.

    Was playing tower defense for 3 hours straight and battery went from 15 percent to 10 only!!

    However I think the s 3 or HTC one x would have the required processing power for current and future intensive games

    I would recommend the N4 and inky the N4. I have noticed games in lag in even the best of phones, but rarely the GN, reason being that it is vanilla Android and the device devs use for testing, hence they are always that much extra bit optimised for the Nexus devices.

    Hey Dude, note 2 is really good choice and benchmark scores is even good, but how's the whole day battery usage with 3100 mAh?

    And if possible please post some benchmark scores of yours!
