    I moved on to the OnePlus 3. Lovin' it so far, although I did have to switch from Virgin Mobile to Straight Talk :p

    But hey, 6 GB or RAM, unlocked bootloader, Snapdragon 820... Worth it.

    Moto G4 for me. Made the jump because the price was right, and the screen, processor, and new OS without needing to root/install CM just felt good. Pro tip, though, there's no compass or NFC. I don't personally miss it since my Volt's compass was spotty at best and I never use NFC, but if you use either of those two you might want to look elsewhere.

    Galaxy S5 Verizon. But I have a new volt I got for $10 bucks. Virgin branded. Going to be activating it as a backup.

    LG Stylo, still on Boost. I only paid $80 back in February after my Volt fell out of my pocket at a bus stop.

    I'm currently looking to buy an unlocked Moto G4 Plus. Walmart sells them for about $250 online.

    How is multitasking with 2GB of RAM? I used a Galaxy S6 Edge+ for a bit and I liked how I could stream music, view a site in the browser, open hangouts to send a message and go back to the browser without the page reloading. The Volt or Stylo would have to reload the page and probably would stop streaming due to low memory.

    I would go for something with a higher PPI and that can be rooted (boost's can't due to locked bootloader).
    It's not a bad screen but you'll need to adjust the DPI at least.

    There's should be a discussion showing you how to go back to stock. Also I'm pretty sure the creator of the post might've created a video showing you all the steps. Cheers, let me know if you need more guidance.
