Should I Go for the LG G flex 2 or the Oneplus One? Black friday deals have started popping up in my country and those 2 seem to be the best options in a price that I can afford.

I prefer stock android a lot more than the LG version of android and I like to tweak my phone(without changing roms), so the Oneplus has an advantage here. On the other hand the G flex 2 is the newer phone of the two so it is more future proof with android updates(I think) and it has a better CPU(1G less ram though). In terms of camera and screen, I'm actually not sure who's the better one so you guys can help me out on this. I Also heard that the One plus one has touch issues, so i'm also a bit afraid of that.

Thanks in advance!

Towelroot and PingPong Root doesn't trip Knox on the Sammy devices until the update that patched the exploit.
My G928C was rooted and hadn't tripped Knox UNTIL I flashed Arter97 kernel and Philz CWM recovery.
I stand by my previous statement.

Yeah, you're right, cfroot is not working since 5.1, on Samsung devices, I missed that on my Note 3 for obvious reasons.
But using cwm or TWRP, and flashing the SuperSu zip works.
And the rest are exploits, and they should be patched fast. I stand by my that statement.

Agreed Sammy patches exploits very fast

Thinking of upgrading from my old S3 to a Nexus 6p or a Note 5. I prefer Note's 4gb of ram but I don't like the Exynos SOC (is there any actual community support like that of S3 back in the day?). On the other hand I really like the countless ROMs and mods that come with a Nexus, but 3gb for a flagship look small and there is also the build quality problems (bend, cracking) that I keep hearing/reading. What would you suggest? Is there anything that combines the good of both of them?

3gb of ram is more than enough! You don't need so much nowadays, maybe in a few years... But with the nexus you have rom support for very many years! I would suggest you the nexus
