    So year to 2 years ago I was big into the Android world with phones, roms, rooting, modifying, etc etc but once I maxed out my phone to its potential I got bored with the research and I haven't been around here since early 2015. My phone now is just not cutting it and think I've warn it out over the last 18 months. It was Boosts Phablet ZTE MAX. I had it overclocked 15-20% so I'm pretty sure because of how its acting and the constant use on it. Its just time for a new phone. It was Dual Core with 1GB ram but I love the size of it.

    I don't know anything about phones in the last year and any development. I know only about spring 2015 and later phones/development, etc.

    Here are my needs....
    1. Phone must be 5.6 inches or bigger, prefer a 5.7 - 6 inch phone
    2. 2 GB Ram or more
    3. Quad Core or more
    4. 720 HD screen or higher
    5. Needs to be able to work on US CDMA or GSM (T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, (Boost using Sprint towers at my house just sucks so I'm staying away from Verizon)

    Moto X Pure Edition is a great phone for the price, with no bloatware (Motorola software enhancements actually enhance the user experience). It has everything you're looking for, and the price really is hard to beat.

    What's the budget? Otherwise I'd just say get a Note 5.

    Carrier choice trumps all.
    After that, it'd be a lot easier to narrow down the candidates.
    Who do you plan on using?

    You are avoiding Verizon, because Sprint coverage sucks?

    That won't be an option if the OP needs "US CDMA", others should be OK though. We don't even have CDMA OnePlus One or Two or X in China.
