Thanks. Whats the difference between that and the G6 play?What specifically?
See here for details: https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=9002&idPhone2=9000&idPhone3=9214

The G6 has more RAM and a better processor, splash resistant, dual primary camera (which is usually better though it's less mega pixels).

The G6 play is more similar to the Nokia 5.1 in the RAM, processor, and camera department. But has a lower resolution screen then the G6 and the Nokia.

Practically speaking, for what I need it for does it matter? Will one last longer than the other?

All carrier compatibility is something that can be useful at one point.

Splash resistance is certainly something that can help the phone last longer.

Performance and better camera will eventually make a difference (although it is very hard to pinpoint)

Consider the new Motorola Moto G6. I think it is a bit better specced than the Nokia 5.1 and you also have the benefit of CDMA and Project Fi network support, should you ever want.
I'm actually using the Moto G6 X4 with Fi and am happy with it.

Yeah, I guess it is low...but not lower than the Nexus 5x which is what I had before.

I'm not very happy with the camera TBH

Will a Moto G6 verizon prepaid work on regular VZW?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Like all the prepaid phones, it will probably not.

Should, but it doesn't harm to contact Fi before and make sure.
