Replacement suspension forks for 2010 Apollo Phaze

I have a 2010 Apollo Phaze which I am currently slowly modifying/upgrading. I want to replace the standard suspension forks but I have read that when replacing the suspension forks it is recommended not to exceed the original suspension travel by more than 20mm to 25mm otherwise it has a serious affect on the geometry and ride of the bike. The original SR Suntour M2000 have 50mm of travel, are a bit spongy making for slightly vague steering and plunge a lot under heavy breaking. Can you recommend some potential suitable forks that would provide a better ride and more responsive steering? Bearing in mind that I only intend to do easy trail riding so won't be attempting any jumps or riding off any large drops.
