Sorry, but I think it doesn't exist.
Unless you are willing to play around/learn new stuff then you're best off buying a new Zumo.
Also, I recommend buying a fancy/expensive android phone instead of an old cheap one. Because the old ones are crap. If you want to avoid screen glare/heat/reliability issues, then you don't want just any android phone. You need to do a bit of research and find a good one.
