    New phone advice - Moto G5, G5S? Others?

    I am getting ready to upgrade my ghetto Samsung Galaxy J3.
    My target budget is $300 plus or minus a couple bucks.

    The G5/G5S 64GB is high on the list but I have read about the wifi issues with some of these phones.
    Do you think it's a legitimate concern?

    Other phones I should consider?
    Moto X4 - A little more than I want to spend, but ...
    LG V20?
    Samsung?

    Your thoughts welcome.

    What do you care about most in a phone? Size? Battery life? Camera? etc. Lots of different recommendations depending on your preferences.

    Sorry I should have been more clear.

    First of all I have Cricket so the phone must be AT&T/GSM Unlocked.
    Because I buy my own phones I tend to stay within a budget. $300 is the most I've ever spent on a phone.

    Phone should be a phone first obviously - good call quality.
    Good camera would be nice but that is secondary.

    I just want the best spec for the buck since I plan to keep it at least 12-24 months.
    For $300, the number of 64GB, Quad-core phones drops off pretty quick.

    Any personal experience with the wifi issue on the Moto G5 or g5S?
