Anybody have a low to mid-priced model they have and recommend, ideally not Motorola?

My second Moto is dying early from a failing USB-C charging port. After 10+ years of loyalty and satisfaction with their models I think its time to move on.

I'm primarily focused on quality coverage with Verizon (thru an MVNO), battery life and enough ability/capacity to operate basic GPS enabled mapping apps for fishing & hunting. Not really asking for much as my price cap is $500 and ideally much less.

Thx in advance!

I'm have the same problem with my second moto G6. I'll never own another. I'm going to try and hold out until July and look for a good deal during Amazon prime day. You could also look at getting a higher end phone that's refurbished. You could probably pick a Samsung or Google refurbished for under $500.

Out of curiosity, did you only use their charging cord or did you also use other ones?
I've bought other longer ones, usually 6'. The one that came with it is only 24" long. The other cords I've bought only work about half of the time. The big problem I've had is the port opening is slightly bigger than the cord end. So the cord end keeps falling out of the port and not charging. I usually have to crunch the metal on the cord end so it makes a tighter fit in the port to stay charging.
Which phone did you end up with?
