Default Recommendations for a used Smartphone with a good Camera

I'm looking for a used Smartphone with a good Camera, MicroSD capability, and good battery capacity to use with a Digiscoping adapter to film video through a Spotting Scope. Would like to keep cost under $200 as this will probably be the only use for the phone.

I can't speak to your specific purpose, but LG V20 (2 gens behind?): SD card, USB-C (seems to work with everything USB-C), swappable batt, 16MP, ~$123:

I'd probably get the version for your provider, that way if you break your phone you can also use this as a backup w/ a quick SIM-SWAP(, or VZW/Sprint call 611 to do the swap?) for full-speed data if the need arises, just in case.

Does this sound like a decent deal? Been looking on CL but I'm kind of leery of buying a used phone from some random person with the only guarantee being "Yeah, it works fine".

a little above budget, and no microSD, but brand new and 128gb capacity...1st gen pixel XL. camera is quite good for a smartphone. (i have one of these, and a pixel 2) (here)

alternately, i can't say about the camera quality, but microSD compatible, and brand new Moto g6 for $99, plus another $20 to set up a google fi account for a month (then cancel it). (here)

I'm going to be selling mine and my wife's old Galaxy S7 edge phones once I replace the screens, since they're both cracked. I just got the replacement screens in the mail so I'm planning to do that this week. Let me know if interested and you haven't found a phone yet. The camera on the Galaxy is second to none, as far as cell phones go.

Thanks for all the suggestions - going to look at a pristine Galaxy S7 that works on my current carrier, AT&T. If it checks out, for $150 I'll have a phone that takes great photos/videos and that will replace my ancient crappy Windows Phone.
