Now using a ZTE Nubia 7 max with Cyanogenmod 11
I was on the lookout for a new phone since my ASUS Fonepad 7 ( ME371CG ) has a broken display and the case is so bent that I can't swap the display a second time. Also, I wanted something more modern than the ASUS, potentially with dual SIM slots. I could have bought the Fonepad 7 on Amazon for EUR 130  new, so I didn't want to spend substantially more on something that I'm likely to drop to the floor.
After some research, I found that no company with a presence in Europe sells something I wanted - Apple is out because I want an Android device, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is far too expensive (EUR 700), the Galaxy Note 3 still sells for EUR 500, and the ASUS Fonepad 2014 ( CE375CXG ) is not out. The Google Nexus 6 sells for EUR 600+, so that's a no-go. Also, it doesn't have a card slot. I decided on the ZTE after some research on devicespecifications.com
, which conveniently lists not only the phone size but also the display size. (Unofficial) Support for Cyanogenmod was a plus, as ZTE seems to install their own UI over the stock Android.
I bought the phone via the Interwebs  in China. The phone arrived 6 days later via DHL (express shopping, yay) , and I had to pay 19% import VAT , making the phone cost EUR 320.
In retrospect, having an SD card slot was really important, but I'll do a second post on how I installed Cyanogenmod on the phone.
