Nest thermostat to simple WiFi thermostat

I thought I wanted a smart thermostat but found out I don’t. 

I would like to be able to set the temperature from my phone but have no other functionality. I do want to keep the ability to change it with my phone/ipad/bezel ring on thermostat. 

For example: if I set the thermostat at 72 degrees and cooling, I want it to stay that way forever unless I change it. Nothing else unless I change the temp with the app or twist the bezel ring. 

if this isn’t possible, that would good to know as well so that I can find a replacement. 

thank you.

I thought I would be ok with the features of a smart programmable thermostat but neither nor my wife like it. 

Thank you for your time.

@Rkims , if you want to forgo all the efficiency and advanced features  of a smart programmable thermostat and just manually control the HVAC system mode and set the desired temperature.  Here how you can do that. 
1. delete any Heating, Cooling, Heat+Cooling schedules. 
2. Turn Off Home/Away assist feature. 
3. Set Heating ECO temperature to 50 and Cooling to OFF.

4. Change Early On to OFF

5. Turn Auto Schedule to OFF

6. Turn Cool to Dry to OFF

7. Turn Sunblock to OFF. 

Now use your Nest App to set the system mode to Heat or Cool, then set the desired temperature.  Now the temperature set point will not change unless you change it.
