Looking for an LG G3 in good condition NOT ON feeBay.

Best I've found so far is $106 (fluctuates to $120 or more sometimes) on Amazon from Edge Cellular. I still feel like the phone is not worth even that much, and right now it's on backorder so I may as well take one more shot at finding a better deal before I click Buy.

Want to get the D851 model for T-Mobile (for use on MetroPCS, so it needs to be unlocked).

I never did find a 5.1" phone with a good processor/3GB of RAM. I was going to go ahead and get the Aristo since it's newer and smaller, but then I noticed that even though it has a 5.1" screen, the overall dimensions are only a tiny fraction smaller than the G3.

Aristo / Quad-core, 1400 MHz, ARM Cortex-A53, 64-bit / 1.5GB RAM

LG G3 / Quad-core, 2500 MHz, Krait 400 / 3GB RAM (and better camera)

I'm assuming the Aristo processor might be better simply because it's newer, but the 1.5G of RAM makes me think it's going to be sluggish and worthless in the end. The only benefit it really has is Nougat and 1) I don't like using a brand new OS, let other people deal with all the bugs and annoyances first 2) I believe the G3 is still expected to get it eventually.

(no interest in the G4 or G5 due to the bootloop design flaw)

I'll check out swappa, thanks, hadn't seen that one.

Moto G4: Too big (same size 5.5" screen, but 1/4" bigger and I think the G3 is already too big but it's the smallest one I've found that isn't junk and has OS updates), lower res screen (not a dealbreaker though), less RAM (tired of Firefox reloading webpages all the time), non-replaceable battery. The only thing that actually looks better is the octa-core processor, but I don't know how a 1500 octa-core compares to a 2500 quad core.
