    OK, I am not in a position to spend $500+ on a phone that's going to be obsolete in 2-3 years.

    Right now I have a 2014 (?) Nexus 5, which I bought new "old stock' for about $200.
    Perfectly happy with it, and I'd love to keep it another couple of years but they have announced it's only good for another year or so ( no Android 7 support, only another year of security patches).
    --- Plus, I dropped it a couple of months ago,breaking a couple of the plastic back-tabs, and now the sim card intermittently stops working. ( have to power down and pop it out and back in again...)

    Anyway, looking for similar 'bargain' phone, was hoping to learn from those who have gone before!

    I do have these requirements:

    must have minimum Android 6 and be guaranteed upgradeable to Android 7
    must have built in Qi support ( wireless charging)
    must be 'pocketable' ( no larger than 140x70 mm)
    A big bonus: Metal or glass back ( no flimsy plastic cases, please ).

    I'm not hopeful that all that can be had for $200, but could go a bit higher - maybe $350?
    I probably would have SPLURGED on a Nexus 5X, except they REMOVED the Qi functionality(!!!)

    I mainly use a phone as a CAMERA and handy wifi web device.
    Very rarely make or take phone calls or text messages (I am on $20 a month "NO DATA" phone plan, and intend to stay that way...)

    Anyway, that's my question, any and all tips and suggestions will be greatly appreciated...

    Moto Z Play maybe the best choice (it supports Qi with a mod called incipio - you can buy it later)
