Photo  Best Smart android phones? Ideas, suggestions? - 07-18-2016, 06:59 PM,

I am like to ask you all for suggestions for Best smart android phones that are not complete trash.

I would really like to have a smaller phone than the Robin, which has a 5.2" screen. Preferably somewhere in the range of 4.5-5" screen size, and it needs to hit at least midrange status, if not around it.

What's important to me in a phone:
-Cameras (doesn't need to be the best, but it should be good enough)
-Battery life
-OS/UI (not sure what it is called really)
-Color options (just black and white are kind of boring to me)
-Price (no more than $300 new and/or used)

I am on T-Mobile by the way. Band 12 is important but not the end all be all. Updates would be nice too but not required.

Here's the options I know of:
-HTC Desire 530 (5") - not out yet but soon
-Sony Xperia Z5 Compact (a little too high for me at the current price)
-Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (no band 12, but eh)
-HTC One A9
-OnePlus X (the bamboo back makes this a possibility, no band 12)
-Moto G (2015) (no band 12?, not sure how the camera is on this one)

Suggestions on if I should bother with any of these or just wait for the rumored smaller Nexus (it probably wouldn't be 300, though but still)? General suggestions that I missed here?

Edit: I was looking forward to the Sony Xperia XA, but it has reviewed poorly so I'm going to pass on that.
