Moto E4 It is a cheap, nice and good phone. Specifications:

MediaTek MT6737 Quad-core, 1400 MHz RAM: 2 GB MEMORY: 16 GB + MicroSD BATTERY: 2800 mAh Android (7.1) ARM Cortex-A53, 64-bit

Sony Xperia E5 OS Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) Chipset Mediatek MT6735 CPU Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 GPU Mali-T720MP2 16 GB, 1.5 GB RAM

I have seen some youtube guides (very useful, the best ones I guess lol), but since those models are quite similar and very recent, before buying any of those I prefer to ask you first,

Mediatek based phones are hard to port to. Usually they violate the GPL and don't release any code.

Welcome to the Sailfish community,

There are some community ports of Sailfish to other devices, see this list. Note that the various ports are in different stages of "working".

If you want to request a port to a device that is not on the list go to this page .

thanks, I have seen those. Actually is a little hard to find several models on the list to buy.

Why almost every these ported devices are only sailfish version 2.1.0.x? Little off topic:

sailfish with oled display would be very great, only one plus one/x and moto x force equipment oled display.

Unfortuntaely Sony still uses lcd (ips variant) on their all phones... So official sailfish device with oled display will be dream :/
