Look. We all have flat panel televisions now. Exactly how are we supposed to put these boxes on top of them?

Under set box?
Smart TV box?
Or start building a shelf on top of the TV.
If your phone is so big and cumbersome that you need a second phone that is easier to hold and easier to handle, then why wouldn't you just get a primary phone that fits those requirements in the first place?
I see these people with their ridiculous 5 inch Android phones. They have them set to dim and turn off the screen almost immediately, because the battery life is so shitty. When they aren't swiping around on them like a crazy person, they are looking for power outlets to keep the stupidly big things charged up.
Screw that. Get a phone with a normal size screen, a phone that fits in your pocket, a phone that has a battery that lasts for a whole day, a phone that doesn't need another phone as an accessory.

When you make over a certain amount from Amazon sales, they file a 1099 form with the IRS. It is not easy to get around paying the taxes on that income. If you are making a small enough amount to avoid the 1099 form, then you're likely not a threat anyway.
That said, these rental places should be avoided like the plague. At least use a low-interest credit card if you must buy on credit.
