Any opinions / recent experience on WiFi enabled SD cards?

I have several of the old generation Eye-Fi SD cards, and they end-of-life'd the product. I'm annoyed, but I also understand how product life cycles work. This broke my primary usage mode. Unfortunately, it's not clear what, if anything meets my needs.

At this point, I only care about bulk, automatic transfer between the SD card (in the SLR) and my phone. I don't care about it working in Hotspot mode or tranferring to anyone else's cloud service. My phone will upload them to Google Photos just fine.

What I don't want is a cloud subscription required for my use case, I don't want to have to manually select the photos to transfer, and I want it to work reliably. If I have to set up my phone as a hot spot or choose to connect my phone to the hotspot of the card, fine, that switch doesn't need to be automatic. Basically, I want to do a thing on my phone (run the app and/or configure wifi) and have all the photos on the SD card get transferred to my phone.

Anyone use FlashAir, Transcend, Flucard, EZShare, or the current generation of Eye-Fi in this mode and happy with the product? I think the Eye-Fi Mobi cards might work, but they push their useless cloud service really hard, but I think it works without that service, but am not sure. The various other ones seem to have their own issues.

Opinions welcome.
