    Must-haves:
    -Cheap ($200 max)
    -Good battery life (Has to last at least a school day)
    -Good gaming performance for price (Will be used with emulated retro Nintendo titles).
    -5.5-inch screen or larger
    Things I don't care about:
    -Camera (As long as it works at all)
    -Software (As long as it's Android, I'll get a Custom ROM anyway)
    Preferences, but not required (In order of highest to lowest priority):
    -Headphone Jack
    -Minimal Bezels
    -Unlocked
    -Doesn't look like an iPhone
    I think that's it.

    Welcome to the forums!

    My first recommendation to you would be the Moto G5 Plus. It's probably a tad more expensive than $200; but not by much.

    It has a 3000 mAh battery, which should certainly help you get through a school day; it has a headphone jack; is splash and dust resistant; and will run Android Oreo at some point (according to GSM Arena). It is at 5.2", however, which is a bit smaller than you were wanting for a phone.

    There are, of course, other options available to you that may interest you more. The Honor 7X is also a pretty great bargain with a bigger battery and a headphone jack; but it's also at 5.9."

    Here is the link to GSM Arena's spec sheet of the Moto G5 Plus. Please keep us posted!

    I would recommend the Moto G5 Plus, Honor 7X. But if you can wait just a tad bit longer, do give the new Nokia 6 for 2018 a hard look. It looks like a great overall package for the price.

    Good luck with your search.

    I might try waiting around for that, I'm still saving up anyway.

    It's a bit more expensive than 200 dollars but for the price I'd say its pretty decent, the "ZTE Axon 7 Mini"

    I recommend Xiaomi Redmi 5 or Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus (bigger screen and also some specs better) if available in your country. I use Xiaomi phone (older model) for two years and I must admit that quality to money ratio is excellent for Redmi series.
