I have read that even a new phone might not work correctly.  I want to buy a phone dedicate to this drone.  Any recommendations on which phone is the best bet for the Mavic??

Sony Z3, bought new and specifically for the Mavic.

Stunning.
Flawless to date.

Perfect screen and size.

If you're going to dedicate it, then get the iPad Mini4 with cellular (for the internal GPS to use IOC functions- but you don't need any data plan nor SIM).
It fits the holder perfectly but you use the center usb connector.

I purchased an iPhone 7 plus. It works perfectly except I find the screen reflective glare in the bright outdoors a little bad. I'm not sure if all screens would be the same. If I could go back, it's something I would have researched.

Realistically, how comfortable is that? Unless you have huge potato-hands, that doesn't look pleasing to hold.

I'm new to the hobby so take it for what its worth I use a Samsung S5 with no cell service just connected to my Motorola Z force's wi-fi hot spot. I have maybe 3 hours of fly time with one app crash, started the app back up with no other issues other than the screen is a bit small.

Same here. I use a one plus 3t but looking for a 6 plus really. As I've read a lot of about iOS reliability.

The iPad Mini4 is only 304 grams or .67 lbs. So it's no big deal. Here I am holding it:
