    Good day

    I’m hoping someone can steer me in the right direction for the right phone.
    Up until 4 months ago I was happy camper with my Samsung Galaxy S3 rooted with Cyanogen-mod.

    Then it died and not keeping up on the latest changes I just went out and grabbed a SAMSUNG GALAXY S5 SM-G900A AT&T SW-VER G900AUCU3B0C4 - LP 5.0. Little did I know that they had locked it up tighter than a drum? Wow, with the software bloat and not being able to use CM on this thing is driving me nuts.

    I’m with Cricket now and I guess that puts in with GSM. Though an unlocked NW phone that could handle both GSM and CDMA would be nice but not a must.


    I’m looking for –

    - 2 GB RAM
    - 4.8 – 5.5 Display
    - One you can root
    - Customize with CM
    - 16-32 Internal ROM
    - MicroSD card support
    - Cost under $250
    Note - I really don’t use a Camera and I don’t play games on these

    Unless someone can suggest something else I was looking at these two last night, straight from Motorola.

    What do you all think about –

    MOTO G3 GSM (XT1540) AndroidTM Lollipop 5.1.1
    MOTO G4 GSM/CDMA (XT1625) Android™ 6.0.1, Marshmallow


    Thank you so much for your time and help.

    Nexus devices are the most flexible and widely developed of all. If you are looking for a choice in custom ROM and other fun things you should look into those as well. The devices you list are great, I don't have much experience with those though.
    I always weigh development into a decision to purchase, but that's just me.
