    The motorola Z or X phones are pretty good. Even the G5 plus is good. The play versions are usually smaller (at least 5" though).

    I started my statement with "If you have good coverage now". If the OP has good coverage now, waiting for a phone with Band 71 won't really change anything. I travel away from my home quite a bit, and wherever I travel to, I have good coverage. So I don't have any need for B71 at this time. Not everyone needs to wait.

    Furthermore, there might be plenty of performance benefits to have from upgrading today from an "oldish iphone 5" without trying to live with that device for another year.

    Except the OP wants a Flagship phone it seems. Why suggest budget devices?

    Hi,

    My budget limit is up to $650 (although I would prefer to pay less, if possible) and I also prefer a device that has security updates for three or four years. Thanks for your help!

    3 or 4 years? You'll have to buy a $325 device now, and a $325 device in 2 years.

    I haven’t bought an android phone in a while so I’m not familiar with how long you can get security updates & I thought if I get the Google Pixel phone (as compared to a branded carrier locked phone-for example Samsung S8) that the security updates would be for a longer period of time Security updates are important to me & prefer to have them as long as I can plus I like to keep a phone for three or four years as well

    I'd take a good look at the Motorola, Moto G5 Plus.

    64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM for 299.00
    Not exactly "Flagship" status but one heck of a nice phone for the money. I own the 32GB/2MB RAM model and I love it. I just wish I had bought the 64GB model.

    I don't know of an Android that would receive updates after a couple of years so I'd simply just buy another new phone after a couple of years.

    Every year technology gets cheaper so in two years the next 299.99 phone will probably be better than todays 650.00 model.

    The soon to be released Motorola Moto X4 may be worth looking at as well. Rumored price to be around 399.00
