Hello all,

I'm planning to buy a phone and would greatly appreciate your views. The key factors that I'm looking for are

1) Root friendly
2) Phone software (Android version) and hardware should be compatible with root modules such as Xposed. That's why I don't mind buying an old phone that comes with Nougat
3) An active android community for that phone, for roms and mods
4) speed

I was considering the One plus 6t or Google pixel 3 (to be released in Oct, but I'm not sure if I can flash Nougat to this)

My best advice in purchasing a new phone!
What ever model you decide to buy,
Make it the unlocked version!
Unlocked phones are not programmed by any cell phone carrier, only by the manufacturer.
They only have the basic operating apps. Installed. (Very little bloatware)
And if you ever decide to change to a different carrier all you have to do is change the Sims card, instead of buying a new device
Just one thing!
Smartphones operate on 2 different types of broadcast signals!
Make sure the carrier you want can activate the phone you choose!
