Android Phone ~300$?

Hello RFD,

My dad's planning to get a new phone to replace his aging samsung galaxy s6. He likes to keep phones for way too long. Do you guys have any recommendations on a new phone for him? I can go over budget if it's worth it.

Edit: ended up getting the Xiaomi mi 9t. Thanks everyone for your suggestions

What's his current contract like? Maybe best option to switch to zoomer and get an A20 as a bonus.

I would maybe suggest a Pixel 3/3XL.

Might find a new one at that price, or used one.

They have terrific simple use cameras and get updated monthly for like ~3 years.

Motorola G7 Plus or G8 Play may be alternatives if he prefers a more familiar brand. There was a post for 180 $ dollars, but if you look good you can find 300$ models as well.
