A: Need good battery backup, microSD card slot if internal storage < 32GB 10. If you have already considered a phone, then please mention the model A: Moto G5 or G5S. Seems to tick all boxes for now. Has good camera, good update history. Lenovo K8 or 9 or 10 something. Don't know how fast Lenovo phones get updates though. Heard that the MTK phones dont get updates. Was thinking of MI A1 but heard it has only single colour notification light. Redmi Note 4 is old now. Mi Mix is too big. Honor 7/8/9 have some drawback - like Kirin processor and no updates. Nokia 6 - ah, no. overpriced. My first preference will be to phones that have a proven track record of getting OS updates. So its probably limited to phones with snap dragon chips now. Second preference to notification led.
