Here is my recommendation
-Samsung Galaxy SIII mini (i think this fon is good)
-Huawei Ascend P1 (Good price, nice specs but there is one con; non-removable battery)
-Motorola Atrix 2, (i think this fon is good)p/s : no jelly bean update but ice cream sandwich is quiet good enough
Please don't buy:
-Samsung Galaxy S Advance (jelly bean x tahu mano [doesn't know official release date]),,,i use this fon now and sometime i feel like want to throw it away (i dont know why)
-Sony Xperia P (poor battery life)
-Samsung Galaxy S Duos (i dont like this [i didn't know why])
-Samsung Galaxy Ace, Ace2, Ace Duos (Specs like a s.h.i.t)if you buy them, you will regret,,,,trust me
Buy this if you have enough budget:
1-Samsung Galaxy S4
4-Sony Xperia Z
5-Nokia Lumia 920
p/s: my english is so bad. I'm sorry
For those who want to upgrade to jelly bean via odin,, here is my recommendation:
-Flash XXLQ4 stock ROM. Dont flash any custom rom cause it will cause many issue such as HEATING (i hate it the most!),, battery drain like a S.H.I.T!! (i also hate it),,,processor become very slowww (my benchmark pi score ---> stock rom = 491ms /// custom rom ---> 700ms my best time ;( ]
-Don't install seeder ( i once istall it and my fon become very unstable ,,hang!!)
-Don't flash project G-Rom,,chucky bean, jellymod, jetmod, purevanilla AOSP, newfuture or any other
-Stock rom is the best choice!! Save battery
-Don't use set cpu cause it will slow down the performance of your fon,,your fon become hot easily,, it also can shorten the lifespan of cpu itself.
##I am not a pro,, iam just saying based on my experience using this Samsung Galaxy S Advance.
Anddd,,, project G-Rom and Chucky Bean suckkkk!!!
Stock XXLQ4 + CoCore-E-4.4 = Smooth + Good battery life + no heating issue + Excellent performance!
Dr. Lithium,,jellymod sucks~!

crazy ivan 95, 01 Apr 2013XXLQ4 stock rom + CoCore-E-4.4 = smooth + battery saverco core its good but siri is very very responsive than cocore or thunderzap
@ lithium jellymod 4.0+ siri kernel rc 4( xda developer) + seeder is the best combination to make u r advance on the fly. I used different kernels and nod finally I am at this conclusion no matter on wich firmware u r I am still on xxply bt no hang no lag but its superfast and very very responsive
