    Thinking of stepping up from the 5in screen on my Nexus 5X to the 5.5in range. I'm not sure I want to pay the 600-plus that new phones cost, so I'm thinking of the used market.

    So, what should I consider? The Nexus 6P is a natural choice, but it's almost 2 years old. The Pixel XL is still a bit too expensive. Maybe the OnePlus 3T? Any others I should look at?

    All I can say is my Nexus 6P has been the best Android phone I have owned.

    I still use my Asus Zenfone 2 for work. I work construction and it's been a good phone. Asus really stepped it up with the Zenfone 2. I know the Zenfone 3 is out, but I haven't kept up with it.

    Yeah, the 6P is definitely something that is high on my list, since I can get it for under $300 used. Should I be concerned about the battery though, on such a relatively old phone?

    That's a legitimate concern. The batteries only last so long. Mine is still good and will last all day.

    I've read good things about the Moto G series phones. Generaly good performance, battery life, and close to stock Android.

    Yeah, the Motos have always impressed me. My backup phone is a Moto X. Great phone. I'll look into the G.
