So my Nexus 5X finally went into the bootloop death spiral and there is no recovery. Being the cheapskate that I am, I can't imagine spending 500 bucks for a phone, leave alone the 700-1000 that the top of the line phones demand. I set myself a somewhat arbitrary limit of $200, because in my 20+ years of buying phones, I have never spent more than $199 on a phone. The two things I absolutely must have are NFC and being unlocked with as many bands a possible, as I do travel to Europe and Asia frequently. After research, I've narrowed it down to these two: ZTE Axon 7 Mini Nokia 6 The Motorola G 5 plus, etc. don't have NFC, and neither does the Honor 6X, 7X, etc. NFC definitely seems to be something only available in the $400+ price range, except for the two above. Are there any others I am missing? Thanks for any advice!
