Needs to work on Verizon network.

Currently looking at Moto X4 for about $350, but specs don't seem a whole lot better than my old Nexus 5X.

What else should I be looking at? Don't want to dish out $650 for Pixel 2.

They haven't really gotten much better lately. Got a Samsung S8 last year, the S9 has very minor improvements. I had the old Moto X (2nd gen) before. Best deal on the S8 was the week before black friday got it for $370. I'm sure the S9 will be in that range again in November if you can wait.

Ive been very pleased with the newer lg offerings. Not to much bloat ware well made nice phones. The v30 is awesome but probably a bit out of your price range.

LG and Huawei can be good options.

Xiaomi is another good one: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/03/...oid-sign-us-up/

^ This or even a used S8 can be had for decent money.

LG had that boot loop problem and Huawei is a Chinese company that the US tells all government workers not to use due to spying concerns by the Chinese government.

As much private information people are stealing from you on these phones they should be giving them to you for free!

Was your computer and internet access given to you for free as well?

Thanks for another useless post.

LG G6 is my recommendation. I use one daily and I love it. Great performance for the price.

I study this quite a bit.

The answer for you is probably the LG G5. Why? Because you can easily replace the battery and upgrade the memory which will likely make it a lot more useful in the long run than the G6.

It should cost no more than $200. The strange thing is I bought nearly a year ago for just a tad cheaper (it was used) and it's still the same price new then as it is now. Not many phones can lay claim to that honor.
